I ordered this sample pack to do a test run and to play around with bouquets and centerpieces before my wedding. I'm so glad I did a practice before because I now know exactly what to expect on the couple of days before the wedding. The flowers do arrive very sleepy looking and I was very nervous when I first opened the box. But, just like the instructions say, once they are hydrated, they wake up and look beautiful. I'm excited to put in the order for my wedding day!
