Flower Care

For optimal results, the bouquet should be delivered 1 to 3 days after your event.

Flower care is essential for your flowers to stay in good condition.
Here are some tips that will help your flowers make it through a long day. If you know ahead of time that you want to have your flowers preserved, let your florist know. If they have any questions, they can always call us.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT FREEZE THE BOUQUET. The person that has been appointed to deliver your bouquet should place the bouquet in the refrigerator over night. Be sure that it is not next to any fruits or vegetables. The boutonniere can be placed in a cup of water after the reception.

Hand Tied Bouquets

Hand-tied bouquets most often do not have a water source. Have a vase with water in it to place your bouquet during the reception. If there is a ribbon, it is okay to get it wet. A few florists will use an oasis holder with stems sticking out of the bottom. If this is the way your bouquet is constructed, follow the directions for cascade bouquets.

Cascade bouquets have a water source. It is in the oasis holder. It is great for flowers that have their own stems. When you get to the reception site, let someone take your bouquet and put some water in the holder, but not on the flowers since they will change colors.
