Rose Petal Aisle Styles and How to Calculate Petals Needed

One of the most popular ways to use rose petals (or hydrangea petals or lilac petals) in a wedding is for the aisle. And while a light scattering of petals is traditional, brides now are choosing to create all kinds of different aisles with their petals. From lush carpets to swirls and shapes of all kinds. Need some ideas? Read on to get inspired and then see how to calculate the amount of petals you will need to create your desired aisle design!

Petal Pathways

Combining rose petals with burlap or another fabric creates a unique, unexpected and stunning aisle!
We love the mounds of petals along the edges to define the wedding aisle.

Now, how do you calculate how many petals you will need to create your desired design? First, you will need to determine a few things, like what style or design you want to create, how long and wide your aisle is and what coverage you would like, as in a light scattering or lush coverage. This chart can help you visualize the coverage...

Petal Coverage

If you choose a light scattering or a petal carpet, simply calculate the total square footage of your aisle and multiply that by the cups needed for your desired coverage. But what about if you want to do a pattern or a swirl? Some patterns, like the paisley, for example, could be determined by a little guesstimation. Say you want each paisley to be about four square feet, you want to do 5 of them and with 6 cups of petal coverage, so 4x5x6=120 cups, and if you keep it within your four square foot area you will have some extra petals, but always good to have too much than too little. Want to do a swirl? The best way to calculate this is to use string. Create the pattern you want by laying out the string and measuring the total length. Then determine how wide you want the pattern. Say your string winds up being 50 feet and you want your design to be 3 feet wide, so 50x3=150 and you want 4 cups worth of coverage, so 150x4, you will need 600 cups of petals.

Hope this gave you some inspiration and the knowledge to create the wedding aisle of your dreams! So, what aisle do you see in your future?
