Is the reception indoors or outdoors? This makes a difference because if it’s outdoors, temperature and sun vs shade will affect the petals.

Do you plan to pull the petals off the roses yourself or buy petals separately? If the former, you’ll probably be fine putting them out before noon for an evening wedding. If the latter, it will depend on how fresh the petals are/how they’ve been stored. I always buy roses specifically for petals if I’m using them in decor; they keep better than pre-plucked petals.
