Has anyone had any experience with blue bom orchids? I visited a flower shop yesterday where the florist said that if the orchids aren’t dried enough (as they’re dyed blue) the dye can leak out of the bouquet and onto the dress. I’ve done some research on these orchids already but hadn’t heard that can be an issue so I’d like to know if anyone has known someone who used them or is planning to use them themselves?

I wasn’t sure what blue bom orchids were so I googled it. Wow! Those are amazing. Sorry I can’t offer any advice though, as I just found out what they were.

I talked to another florist today and she said that can happen, they can leak but what she does is cover the stems of the bouquet so any dye that leaks will end up on the ribbon (or whatever the stems are wrapped in) and none ever gets to the dress. She said its a pretty small risk but it is a risk all the same. She wasn’t overly concerned about that at all though, in her 20+ years of designing bouquets she’s never had a problem.
Insert big sigh of relief here.
