I don’t have any experience with this particular variety but all white or light colored roses run the risk of browning.  Usually it is due to bumping the petals like for example on a bouquet that is carried and then set down.

My bouquet had vendela roses in it.  They were gorgeous, and definitely didn’t start wilting.  They were still gorgeous for days after the wedding (and I’m sure longer, I left them at my parent’s house and I’m not sure how long they lived).  My bridesmaids had yellow roses, and they started to slightly brown by the end of the night (not too bad though), but the vendelas held up a lot better.  My bouquet also had white hydrangea in it and a few yellow freesias for a pop of color- maybe the hydrangeas seperated the roses a bit and kept them better?  (my bridesmaids bouquets were ALL roses)

I had vendela roses in my bouquet a few weeks ago! They lasted all day/night and for a couple days later too. (Side note, the orchids were alive and good for almost two weeks after!!) Pics above are before the ceremony, and the one below is the end of the night as we left!

I had vendela roses and they lasted just fine. I was told by the florist (before I even chose my flowers) NOT to set the bouquet down on it’s side because it bruises the flowers. She said it’s not worth the pretty pictures! All my bouquet pictures were taken with the flowers in a vase or me holding them.

The flowers did get a bit damaged from me holding it up against me, but I really think it will happen with any flower. 

We did use silk flowers for the boutennieres though because I was afraid real flowers would just get smooshed with all the hugging.

I had Vendela roses and they were just fine… I was handed my boquet around 11am and the next morning they had started to turn. It was a hot humid day!  The roses that did wilt were the black magic (red) roses.

We had vendella roses in our engagment centepieces, small and only for 4 tables but they were so nice and bloomed I loved them. 

They didnt seem to turn for a few days we just kept filling the vase with water to keep those babies hydrated 🙂

I think they are great as long as they are kept fresh!
