Looks to be a stargazer lily.

Yes they are. Your florist will have no difficulty finding them, however you will pay more if they are not in season.

They should be available if you’re looking to use them for a June wedding but make sure the florist takes the stamens off (the little orange pieces)!! I had a bridesmaid bouquet once where the guy didn’t take them all off & we all kept wiping the orange powder /pollen off our dresses! Thank goodness there wasn’t any in the brides! 😉

Also be aware that they can have an incredibly pretty but pungent smell, which is nice in small doses, but can give some people fragrance headaches.

Yeo. V pretty, but could be a bit stinky for cake topping duty!

I agree with Dancy905 about taking the stamens off!  The orange pollen will stain if it rubs onto your clothes!  Not ok for a white bridal gown!

They do have a distinct smell as well…but if you only used a few lilies and then a variety of other flowers with it, you could probably avoid too much “lily” smell.

They are beautiful. But yeah, the stamen stain clothing like what.  You also have to be careful with the spotted bits.
