I wanted a gardenia bout or corsage and my florist told me that although they are beautiful, they are extremely fragile and actually have an "acquired" smell to them. I think a bouquet of them would be gorgeous. I love the simple elegant look of them. But after some bumping or laying it down, it will begin to brown quickly. How about calla lilies or tulips? They have that simple clean elegant look in white and they are very sturdy flowers. My only suggestion about the flowers for your bm’s is that you get a really firm idea of what your florist can offer and at the season of your wedding. Those colors will range greatly from season to season depending on the flower. I wanted hot pink and my flowers actually looked more lilac. That kinda messed me up since everything else was light to hot pink, not lavendar. Be specific, make sure you get a sample from your florist.

They are pretty potent flowers, but I love the smell. I’d suggest mixing them in with others, as a bouquet would be overwhelming. Also, they do tend to brown around the edges fairly quickly. My favorite use of them are floating in bowls with candles. And to keep them fresh while doing this, I’ve heard it’s important to get "donuts" (plastic pieces you can find at a florist supply shop).
