That’s a great idea, but you should definitely think about ordering them from the supermarket. If you saw them recently, they may be seasonal–and not available for your wedding! And that would definitely not be what you’re going for… 🙁

My friend got married on a beach and asked me to take care of the bouquet (she was envisioning us picking wildflowers somewhere).   Anyways, where I live, no wildflowers grow (unless you count people’s gardens) so I went to the grocery store, picked 2 pretty bouquets, selected the nicest flowers from them, and turned it into a bouquet.  There are some great how-to videos (i.e., ehow.com) that show you how to cut the bouquet short, wrap the stems with floral tape, and then wrap it again with pretty ribbon and pins.  I definitely suggest practicing at least once before!  I accidentally made the first one too long.  Good luck!

I would purchase them and try them out – typically, flowers from the grocery store arent good quality and often have been sitting around for days (ie rose buds never open, petals fall quickly, heads droop).  i would buy them, do a trial run, and leave them out of water for 8 hours or so and see how they do.  you can also ask the store when they get their flowers in and plan accordingly.
