Are you talking about the white ones? I believe my florist said they were stephanotis. Hope this helps you.

Stephanotis is DEFINITELY correct.  Sometimes the problem with fake flowers is taht they don’t really look like, or aren’t really designed after, a real flower.  So sometimes their real counterpart doesn’t exist.

Stephanotis is a filler flower, so definitely not expensive.

@thesejoys:I always heard Stephanotis was VERY expensive. It’s probably somewhat dependant on where you are.

@EffieTrinket: it’s possible that I am wrong. I had just met with a florist last week and she was telling me that nowadays stephanotis is a much more popular filler flower than something else (I can’t remember what) because their values have changed and stephanotis has gotten cheaper. But maybe I misunderstood her and that it doesn’t mean that they are cheap!

I don’t think they’re too bad. Fiftyflowers has them for 25- $69.99, 50- $89.99, 100- $129.99. However, they have to be wired like orchids so that could drive the cost up. I, also, heard they bruise easily. They smell really good though!

yeah they are pretty pricey here. and I am being strongly discouraged from using them because they are fragile. But I do love them so lol.

Stephanotis tends to be a flower that you can typically find a good fake alternative to- and since they are almost always put in with a pearl or some other bead in the middle (to hide the wire) it is even easier to fake them if need be- since the tell tale sign of a fake flower is typically it’s plastic center!

However, if you chose to keep them to a minimum, the real thing shouldn’t be terribly expensive.

Stephanotis is more expensive because it’s a ‘signature’ wedding flower. Just like everything else with a wedding tag on it, the price is raised (kind of like roses in February). They’re not terribly expensive but a little on the pricey side. Beautiful though. I covered my ring pillow in them 🙂
