I’m sorry I don’t have any advice really but wanted to share my experience with lisianthus. My florist put these pretty white with pink edge lisianthus in my bridesmaids bouquet and I asked if I could have a couple to put in my hair. He advised against it, because the petals are too delicate to last all night. However, the lisianthus in my sample bridesmaid bouquet lasted over a week in almost perfect condition until the very end. So they are hearty flowers, but maybe just need a consistent water source.

Hopefully someone can chime in, but maybe spritz them with water throughout the evening (very time consuming) or maybe even spray them with a starch?

If you use lisianthus I would make two sets of boutonnieres to use for the wedding day. One that you use for the ceremony and a second one for pictures. Keep the second one hydrated until you need to use it, and if the first one is not in too bad condition, place it in water so that you can potentially shift back to it once the second one starts to look tired.
