I would definitely use wet floral foam- like this:

A friend used hydrangeas for her bouts and they got REALLY wilted very quickly.  By the end of the ceremony, all the bouts looked dead. So the water will keep them fresh.

I think the number of stems depends on the size of wreath you choose (diameter and thickness).  It will also depend on how many blooms are on each stem you buy.

They best advice I can give you is to practice first.  Maybe make one and lay it flat as a centerpiece for party, or to hang on your door to celebrate spring (that will also give you an idea of how it will hold up).

To save time/money, you could always make 1/4 or 1/2 of the wreath, see how many flowers you used, and then multiply to figure how many you’ll need to go all the way around.

And don’t forget that you will need a way to affix them to the doors (I use one of these- it doesn’t require nails or adhesives and you could even paint it to match the door or wreath: http://www.containerstore.com/browse/Product.jhtml?CATID=69023&PRODID=62635)
