You can use rose petals for many types of celebrations, with weddings probably being the most obvious. For example, instead of throwing rice (which is environmentally unfriendly), you can throw petals. Flower girls can use petals. You can wrap the petals in netting and give them as a memento to the wedding guests at the reception.

Aromatherapy

It takes about 2,000 pounds of roses to produce one ounce of rose essential oil — that’s why rose oil is expensive. Learn lots more about aromatherapy by just clicking the link.

Two other suggestions: Take a bath with the petals of roses or use the petals to create a fragrant potpourri.

Cooking

You can add some types of rose petals to foods to increase flavor. Often used as a garnish for desserts and field greens, the most popular petals for culinary use are rose damascena and the apothecary rose.

Native Americans used dried petals in their cooking for the unique flavor and aroma, and Victorian Americans enjoyed candied petals.

How about a Wild Rose Hip Jam sounds delicious heh!.

Cosmetic

Rose petals can make your skin glow with health. They reinvigorate dry, patchy skin and leave emollients on the skin that moisturizes and balances skin tone. Also, rose water is a good astringent for your skin.
