Alternatives to Flower Petals at a Wedding


Some people love using flower petals at their weddings. They place them on tables, down the aisle, or anywhere else in the venue.

Flowers are undoubtedly beautiful, and petals can add to the magic of a wedding. Flowers, however, are usually expensive. Petals can add hundreds or thousands of dollars to your wedding cost.

Candles are a fantastic option for lining the wedding aisle. Candles can set the mood much differently than petals.


Soft pinecones are another alternative to expensive flower petals. Depending on where you live, you can collect pinecones outside for free!


If you’re getting married in the fall, your flower girl can throw beautiful, colorful leaves. You can go outside on the morning of your wedding or the day before to collect red, yellow, and orange leaves.
