I’m going to do a couple test runs to see if I can do it myself, but from what I understand, you should be able to buy them from a wholesaler a day or two before the wedding, make the bouquets THEN, and then let them sit with the ends in water until the wedding day. That way they stay nice and fresh and not wilty. A lot of the flower wholesalers who ship flowers to you recommend getting them 2 days before the event even, to give them maximum time to “open up” and whatnot. I think they’ll be fine if you get them the day before and keep them watered!

I’m getting mine from Fresh Market about two days before the wedding.  I plan to keep the house nice and cold so they do not wilt, and use those flower-food packets that they come with.  I have tested this by just keeping them in a vase on the table, and the flowers lasted for a good week-and-a-half without wilting.  So long as you keep them cool and in water, you should be fine.
