Their stems are hollow, which means they can be very hard to work with, and can snap.  Also, depending on when you’re getting married, they can be brutally expensive.  I got married in July when they’re out of season so I didn’t ask my florist about using them, but they’re my favorite flower!  Since your Fiance is Dutch and you have such a great connection to tulips, it’s certainly worth asking your florist about!

I asked my florist about tulips too.. she said she would do it but they might not look they way I think they would… They open up really quick she said.

Here is a pic of what I thought I wanted..

Maybe you can use tulips in the centerpieces so they can be in water all day?

Last spring, I was thinking I wanted tulip bouquets. I cut tulips from our flower garden and put them in vases and they were completely open in an hour! I called a local florist, and he said that he prefers to not use tulips in wedding bouquets because they open very quickly, which is not usually the look people are going for, and because they grow very quickly after being cut, so your bouquet might not be the height you wanted.

I went to a wedding with gorgeous tulip centerpieces- but by the end of the night, they had all flopped over so that the bloom was amost touching the table.  I think they can fix this with wire, but I would be very cautious about this.

I agree about the tulips, you’d have to get REALLY fresh ones for the look you’re going for.  Tulips are my favorite flower, but it sucks they’re not very hearty.

I love love love tulips. Have you considered going with natural touch silk flowers for your bouquet? I’m sure you’ll be able to find closed tulips there and you won’t have to worry about them opening 😉 You could always team with with real flowers if you wanted to!
