We decided that we are going to do submerged blue orchids as our centerpiece.
I purchased one stem from our grocery store for $2.57, and then another stem from a well known flower shop for $7.00. I was wondering if you can tell the difference between these two, or if one looks better than the other ? – I don’t want to say which is which!
Oh and the one on the left has been in the vase for 8 days now…

Wow, I’m beyond impressed. 100% cannot tell!
The last wedding I attended, FI was a groomsmen. They had cymbium orchids on their boutonnieres and I was 100% sure they were fake … they were real!

I think the color on the right is just a tad richer, but probably because its been sitting less time.
I think they look amazing and very pretty!!

Look the same to me! The ones on the left aren’t quite as vibrant, but that is probably because they are 8 days old. Go with the grocery store ones!! Beautiful arrangement by the way!

@JessicaDolly: I wouldn’t say one is better than the other. One looks darker though. In this case go for the cheaper option!

The ones on the right are more vibrant. But honestly, if only one is shown alone at your tables, no one will miss anything. They’re both gorgeous!
(And when will you tell us which is which?)

the one on the right is a tiny bit darker, but that could be because the left has already been in the water for a week. there’s really no difference. go with the cheaper one.
