@wildcatjack:  I dont remember which specific types of flowers but I know my florist doesnt want to put certain ones in my centerpieces bc be says they wont last without wilting or “dropping.” Why didnt she just help you to pick nice looking flowers that last, are in your budget, AND go with your color scheme? I think that’s the point of finding a good florist.

@wildcatjack:  They probably won’t last terribly long during the hottest part of the day, but that’s how live flowers are! I wouldn’t worry about it at all. 🙂

I did carnation clusters – these babies are sturdy!  They are also cheap, so if for some crazy reason they died at least they won;t cost you much!  You can see what I did here http://happinessiscreating.com/my-wedding/

I think you should take her advice on how flowers will last for the day. If there’s something you really want, then I would suggest doing some investigation on your own – asking another florist, or researching online to see how it might handle being in a wedding but, sadly, there are a lot of flowers out there that don’t last very long 🙁
