Maybe carnations? They get a bad rep but I love them!

The purple carnations would have been awesome. They do not even look like carnations. Roses? Dahlias?

wow..haha I was going to say carnations. You could check out craft stores like Michaels or AC Moore for some nice fake flowers as well…they def. don’t need water:)

Haha ok. Well how about some type of daisy? I am not sure exactly what they’re called but I sometimes buy bouquets of these things and they last forever, and a whole bouquet is 10 bucks! They come in all kinds of colors and look like a big daisy.

What about baby’s breath or caspia (similar to babys breath). 

Or, think about a fern, a leaf, or a berry instead of a flower.

I like the idea of lavender. How about a couple of billy balls?

I think the daisies that OttawaBride2011 is referring to are called Gerber Daisies. They come in a lot of different colors and are quite hardy.

You can actually by bud vases that have a notch for a name card.  A friend of mine did this with daisys and it was beautiful.  The other thing that comes to mind is veronica or lavender as previously stated.

I am doing purple vanda orchids…at cost those are $13 for a bunch which is 6 stems. But I’m not sure how many come on a stem! But they are beatiful!!

Mums and zinnias!! In October, they will be in season, too!

I’m using zinnias, mums, and sunflowers at our October wedding.

Zinnias would be the better bet of the two if they need to be out of water.
