MrsCreeToBe:  my bouquet looked great for the entire day and the next day. They (mine and BMs) were delivered early AM for our 4:30 ceremony which started late (closer to 5). They sat in water and were fine.

What kind of flowers? Some flowers will be okay for that long, while others will need a vase of water nearby to stay fresh. Just fill the vase enough so that the stems are submerged, but not the ribbon.

I picked mine up at 3 pm the day before our wedding! We kept them in water in the fridge overnight, and they looked great from our 9am ceremony until I tossed my bouquet at 3pm. If you’re worried maybe you can do the first part of your first look without them?
