Hi pokergirl!! I love this idea. We’re from Mississippi and this is a dream for most Mississippi brides. However, do you know that once you touch a blossom the petals turn brown? its horrible 🙁 Let me know if you find a way to make it work!

magnolias bruise EXTREMELY easily… like if you look at it funny, they’ll turn brown lol.

it’s a shame though since they’re so lovely – have you considered looking for real touch ones?

That inspiration bouquet is actually Gardenias, which also bruise very easily, but are a different plant from Magnolias.

@elliestan: lol, the only magnolia I’m uber familiar with is the tree!!!!  

I second getting the real touch or velvet/soft-touch flowers.  From what little I know (and I know VERY little) they aren’t the stoutest/toughest of plants….

@pokergirl84: Those are actually Gardenias – Magnolia is a flowering tree.  In SF the flower stands have gardenia boutonnieres for $1 and I would get one each time I passed by one.   You will have to be very very very very careful with gardenias, they tend to bruise and wilt with the slightest touch.
