In October, in Florida… you might have some wilting depending on the type of flowers you are using.  Can you ask them to keep the air on? Or can you have someone drop them off the day of?

I would have someone drop them off/ set up the day of -so that they don’t wilt, and you don’t have to worry about it!

Yeah, I wouldn’t leave them there overnight.

Some flowers are really fragile, some are pretty hardy. What flowers are you using?

Either way, even if the a/c was left on, they should be refrigerated or kept according to specification until as close to the wedding as possible…

You should see if it is possible to put your flowers in the fridge. But NOT the freezer they will die!

Yeah I agree with everyone else that it would probably be the best idea to have someone drop them off for you the day of. I’m not too sure about sunflowers. From what I remember, I think they do start to droop after a while and it might not take long for that to happen at all. You should try to test it somehow. Like get a bouquet with sunflowers in it and see how long it takes to droop. Only thing is, it will just be an estimate since you don’t really know the time between when those flowers were cut and when you get them…

Ps. Yay for Hollywood FL!!! I grew up there when I was little 🙂
