I’ve seen "peruvian lillies" hold up pretty well in Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets…not sure about regular lillies.  Maybe ask one of the WB Pros?

They will hold up, if your florist uses small container(capsules) for them.

i love love love lillies! my bouquet will be callas, which are supposed to hold up well, and the reception centerpieces are all rubrium lillies. the only thing to watch out for is that some of them (like the rubriums) have really dangerously staining stamens, so maybe see if your florist can cut those out or treat them somehow if you will have that kind in your bouquet. it would be awful to get an orange splotch on your dress!

yes lilies tend to do pretty good. 

Calla Lilies obviously are the strongest of all because they  have a lot of water already in their thick stems.

Casablanca and Stargazers  do well too. Shouldn’t be any problems.

 Asiatic Lilies are probably the most fragile of all but they should be ok too.
