Hmmm. I probably would refrigerate them anyway, if it were me…I think they should be ok.

Do they treat them with anything to make them look better longer? I use rose petals in making soap, and it seems to me as if they start to look pretty wilted by a day after you strip them from the flower. Of course, I don’t refrigerate them. I can’t imagine they would last 72 hours if they hadn’t been treated with something.

I need some additional info:

  • Where are you having them delivered? (city/state)
  • What date/month are you having them delivered?
  • Are you afraid they’ll freeze or overheat?

It makes a huge difference in how the petals will react (since they are usually delivered in 5gal bags…)

You should be fine if you refridgerate them when they come in.  This site has pretty good information about get the best from your petals http://www.strictlyrosepetals.com/lavenderpetals.htm . They actually recomend receiving the petals on Thursday for a Saturday wedding, so you should be fine. No worries!
