I don’t think it’s impossible, but it might be more trouble than it’s worth. Have you thought about fake floral?

You could always just buy a few at the grocery and thry several methods.  The only one that I have ever done is leaving the carnations overnight with the stem in colored water, but with that method I don’t think you would ever come out with that dark of a color or with that saturation.

I’ve done it — not for a wedding, but just for fun. You just put food coloring the water, stick the stems in, and they soak up the color. It’s pretty easy. You should experiment beforehand to get the amount of food coloring just right, etc.

We had blue-tipped carnations, so the process is a little different, but yep! Here’s a pic of how they turned out!
