I am getting married in October, and have decided to take on a few diy projects… one of them is my floral arrangements and bouquets. I recently found out that my reception hall doesn’t keep their air on overnight. If i put my arrangements on the table in the hall the day before, will my flowers die from the lack of air conditioning??

In October, in Florida… you might have some wilting depending on the type of flowers you are using. Can you ask them to keep the air on? Or can you have someone drop them off the day of?

I would have someone drop them off/ set up the day of -so that they don’t wilt, and you don’t have to worry about it!

Yeah, I wouldn’t leave them there overnight.

Some flowers are really fragile, some are pretty hardy. What flowers are you using?
Either way, even if the a/c was left on, they should be refrigerated or kept according to specification until as close to the wedding as possible…

I am using mainly sunflowers. I think that they are pretty hardy, but i would hate to get to the hall and have them be wilted… I guess i am going to have to get some of my people to help put them together that day instead of leaving them overnight…
I will be getting them on the thursday right before the wedding, if i keep them in buckets with fresh water and the flower food, place them in an office with the temperature cool,do you will they keep?

You should see if it is possible to put your flowers in the fridge. But NOT the freezer they will die!

Yeah I agree with everyone else that it would probably be the best idea to have someone drop them off for you the day of. I’m not too sure about sunflowers. From what I remember, I think they do start to droop after a while and it might not take long for that to happen at all. You should try to test it somehow. Like get a bouquet with sunflowers in it and see how long it takes to droop. Only thing is, it will just be an estimate since you don’t really know the time between when those flowers were cut and when you get them…
Ps. Yay for Hollywood FL!!! I grew up there when I was little 🙂

Thanks for the help!
I spoke with my caterer and she said she will put everythin on the tables for me that day so i don’t have to worry about it over night! A couple of my bridesmaids are going to check it out to make sure everything is perfect!!
