I discovered flowers that match my wedding colors (raspberry and baby pink) pretty near perfectly. I’ve seen them in a couple of arrangements at our receptionist’s desk, but that’s it. Does anyone know how well godetia would hold up in a ‘maid’s bouquet (i.e. how "thirsty" of a flower are they)?

Go to http://www.fiftyflowers.com . I am a florist, and this is the best place for flowers online. Each flower has a description and care instructions. Its fantastic!
To answer your question directly, though, godetia, once hysdrated sufficiently, will hold up fairly well. As with all flowers, if you are out in the heat or flowers stay out of water for too long, they will wilt. The day of the wedding, I advise brides to wrap the stems of their bouquets in wet paper towels and then cover with a ziplock bag when in transport if you are worried about drooping.
Hope this was helpful. Good luck!

Thanks CindyLouWho. I was particularly worried because I was originally looking at hydrangeas which are apparently more "thirsty" than most flowers. I had actually already looked at fiftyflowers.com to price godetias. In addition to the ‘maids bouquets, I need blooms to tuck in the fruit arrangements for my centerpieces.
