I’d never heard of it, but it certainly looks neat. 

 Looks like it’s available in the US, so shipping shouldn’t be so bad:

Oh, how pretty!  I don’t know how that would taste, but I’ve had hibiscus tea before…it was…interesting.  An acquired taste, maybe, since my hubs loves it.  I think I’d be more worried about the effect of the syrup than the hibiscus, tho’.  But I gotta say it’s so beautiful, I might not care! (I don’t even care much for champ. in the first place.)  How ’bout berries (raspberries, blueberries, etc.) as a cheaper alternative?

i think it looks beautiful! no experience on the taste, however. like princesskittyHI, i think that berries would be a great alternative!

Is this for your you guys or your guests? I was thinking that if you wanted the guests to see it, it would have to depend on how far away they are from you guys when the toasts happen.

Good luck, and let us know what you decide!

We are having the same thing for our champagne toast! My FI and I ordered a jar of the flowers over the summer and tested them out with a few friends. Everyone loved them! They add a little raspberry flavoring to the champagne which was perfect. The flowers don’t "open" as much as the website leads you to believe but they are still beautiful. I highly recommend them! Definitely something your guests will remember!!!

Hi beesknees —  Coincidentally, one of our local papers just did a little item on these!  And, what’s nice is that they seem to have bought some and done an actual photo shoot using their results (from http://www.starbulletin.com)

As obxbride said, they don’t seem to open up as pretty as in the picture on the official site.  They also said it gives a berry flavor to the champagne.  Read the full item here:
