I just got married (9/18/10) and decided to order in season dahlias from the farm (to cut down on the cost of my flowers).
The farm offered over 300 varieties and the flowers were absolutely gorgeous on the day of the wedding.
I typically am not very fond of dahlias, however when you go to the farm you can find some very unusual and gorgeous varieties.
They say that they last 5 + days, however I was nervous and picked them up on Friday for a Saturday wedding. I am sure glad that I did this, because they started looking a bit wilty by Sunday.
One cute idea that we did, we purchased a 9 to 12 inch dahlia and tied a ribbon on it for our ring bearer pillow. It was beautiful.
Also, in retrospect, I wish I had ordered these huge dahlias at a very low price and floated one head of them in water at each of the reception tables.
