it’s difficult to dye freeze-dried petals, and that’s not a color that occurs naturally. you might have to stick with silk or confetti.

I believe that’s hybrid delphinium. They have huge blooms. Not cheap I must say. Please remember to test to make sure the dye doesn’t get everywhere, that could be a financial nightmare after the wedding.

There are different times when this flower is blooming. California wholesalers sell it I think year round but you’ll see a huge spike of inventory at your local farmers market at certain times of the summer. If you need as much as the amount that is in the picture, I would suggest going directly to a local farmer and asking him for his leftover crop. Additionally, you could see if Michaels sells the dried version of this. If you had a weekly coupon, you could virtually get a steal on their dried inventory.

To use artificial would be weird to me because once you walk on them and they start to blow away, they won’t disintegrate. If you use natural blooms, it would seem more appropriate for the environment.

The photo is beautiful but is there white carpeting anywhere? For example, is a guest going to carry this on the bottom of his shoe into a hotel? Could be a disaster if the blooms bleed.

If you really love the color, see if your florist could get a good deal on Hybrid Delphinium and/or Belladonna – both have similar colors and are extremely photogenic.
