I love iris bouquets but my florist says irises don’t do well out of water. She probably couldn’t put them in bouquet water tubes because the iris stems are so thick. Did anyone have iris bouquets? Were they fine, or did they wilt? My wedding is in July, so I’m worried about the heat.

I helped a friend out with here flowers and she too wanted Iris, but the florist talked us out of them as well. Maybe they might be okay in cooler weather, but during the summer they would’ve wilted before the wedding even started, as it was the calla lillies she had were a little wilty in the 90 degree weather.

Buy a bunch and do your own experiment.

I wish I’d seen this earlier! I had ONLY irises in my bouquets in March (one month after the Australian summer finishes, and I live in Queensland… so tell me about heat!!)
However… they were perfect! They were delivered early in the day, my wedding was at 4pm and they lasted all day and night and still looked great the next day.
When I first enquired about them a few florists explained to me that they don’t display them in their shops for this reason (they keep them in the fridge) but honestly mine were SO nice.
I used fake ones that I bought from Etsy for $5 in the girls’ hair – can you tell the difference in the pics? (You could tell in real life, but only by touching them)

samstar73: I know this is an old post, but was looking up iris bouquets… those are gorgeous! I’ve considered making iris bouquets, but haven’t been able to find any artificial ones. I wonder if that etsy shop still sells them
