I don’t think it would be a matter of space so much as it would be a matter of the mess. We had so much water and leaves and debris from our flowers all over our apartment afterwards. The clean up took just as long as the set-up. I would be more worried about the mess it would make than the space required. 

A summer home would work much better than a hotel room.

Would your hotel allow you the use of a catering fridger or even supply you with a fridge for the flowers?  Regarding the mess issue, I’d take a dollar store shower curtain, lay it out on the floor and do all the arranging, cutting, etc right there.  Then, bundle it all up and toss it when you’re done.

I did this last year in a hotel room in Vegas in July. I ordered the flowers from blooms by the box, and had them delivered to the hotel. It’s totally doable, especially if you have your maids helping. Here are some tips:

-Make sure you bring containers to rehydrate the flowers in. I ended up borrowing a couple of rubbermaid type container from the bride, filling them with water and sticking them in the tub. We also had to borrow ice buckets from some other guests, and use one of the little trashcans from our room, but we did it! We were also lucky enough to have a room where the tub was separate from the shower, so this didn’t keep us from using the bathroom.

-The mess wasn’t a big deal at all. We laid some extra towels on the ground and striped leaves/damaged out petals on the towels to contain the mess.

– We did crank the AC up, and I’m glad we did. Our room was FRIGID, but the flowers were beautiful!
