Has anyone on here ever shared church flowers with another wedding? The church just got in touch with us to ask us if we would share them with a wedding which is on the day before..
has anyone had any problems with this?
There was a thread on this the other day. Think the concensus (sp?) on this was - only do it if you meet the other bride and are of a like mind on flowers. The thread I read everything seemed to end up very messy and one of the brides took over the flowers. The other bride pulled out and got her flowers at a discount - from the same florist!
Think I would be reluctant to do it. Unless your colour scheme was similar and your flowers were similar - I wouldn't (just my opinion).
Another thing to think about is how well the flowers will keep.
The first wedding could have a gang of kids invited and in my experience the run mad when they are in en enclosed space like a church so flowers could very well end up tattered and messy for your wedding
oh no, i dont like the sound of this! prob a silly question but would the flowers still be fresh after a day?

Flowers will stay fresh for over a week if they are treated properly. However, some do have a tendancy to wilt quicker than others.
Gerberas and roses tend to drop first. Lilies and orchids will last the distance as will dahlia and chrysanthemums.
Also some leaves can be a bit delicate. I was at a wedding on Saturday and by the night some of the leaves were drooping very badly in the table arrangements.
