Those are called white stock.  They smell SO wonderful.  They should be available at all times!  I also believe that they’re moderately priced (if I remember correctly, we sold them for $2.50/stem at the shop I worked in.  If you bought them wholesale, they’d be less expensive).

I use White Stock a lot at home in arrangements…..it also comes in many colors, pinks, reds, dark purple and pale lavender/blue as well.  If you’re going to do the flower yourself be really sure that the flowers you’re buying are fresh!  (they should not be dry on the bottom and buds should be about 1/2 open..

If making yourself be sure to cut stems under water in a bowl or filled sink to prevent air bubbles in the stem. An air bubble will make the flower stem droop after a short while. You also should take any leaves off that are under the water line in your vase………

It comes up in my garden in late spring….but  it is real common in flower shops and most on line floral suppliers keep it as a stock flower..should not be hard to get, but check with the place you’re getting your flowers from.   It also has a strong spicy scent , I happen to love it, but make sure you get to smell it if you’re not familiar with the scent.

Congrats on your Big day, it will be lovely.
