I would try freeze dried petals, they hold thier color and shape better over the hours are not that expensive.

SeptemberSparkle:  petal garden (petalgarden.com) sells freeze dried rose petals as well and I have heard good things.  They normally offer a discount code on their facebook page or can tell you when they will offer the next discount. Also I’ve fallen in love on pinterest with this photo where they put a whole rose stem in the cylinder and fill it with water and put a floating candle on top.

Freeze dried petals may be a good option if you want to have them done early, but they may discolor the water depending on what color you get since they are often colorized.

 

If you do decide to go with fresh, it really wouldn’t be a big deal. Ge the roses, leave them out for a few hours if they need to open, then just keep the roses in the fridge (keep away from fresh fruit and veggies) and have someone break them up as they are putting out the centerpieces.
