- Wedding: February 2015 - Mount Hermon
I like their smaller size and their price tag better than regular roses. My mom is convinced that they won’t survive. I’ll be using them with carnations and baby’s breath.
We’re DIY ing the flowers and they would probably have to arrive Thursday or Wednesday, assembled Friday for my Sunday wedding. They would be kept in water up to the very last minute.
Did you use them? How long did they survive, in water? Out of water?

I used spray roses in mini vases (long tables), and they held up really well. I picked them up Fri morning and assembled them Fri night for my Saturday wedding. I kept them in water and turned up the AC to keep them cool. I even brought a few left over vases home and the roses lasted at least a week changing the water every few days.
I say go for it… I love how small and delicate they are, and was surprised at how much sturdier they were than regular roses!

I had spray roses as part of mine. We went with a florest, and really they lasted as well as many of the others.

I am not a florist, but I used to help out in the floral department of the grocery store I worked at. The only thing I would be concerned about is temperature. During Valentine’s week we would have 3 different cooler rooms stuffed full with roses. They would be in there for days and would still be completely closed when we pulled them out. Could you keep them refrigerated? Maybe clean out your fridge and see if anyone else is willing to let you keep some in theirs? If not, I see you’re getting married in February. Maybe find a way to store them outside, such as in a spare car, garage, etc.
And yes, spray roses are much more sturdy than standard sized ones. So even if you can’t keep them ice cold, I think you’ll be fine.
