DIY Brides love dahlias due to their interesting and unusual shape and large size!  

  • Disclaimer: Due to the delicate nature of dahlias we cannot guarantee or issue refunds on dahlias so it is buyer beware. They do not ship well, so it is best to purchase if you can pick up at one of our local wholesalers.
  • Stem Count:  5 stems
  • Color: Lavender, but can pull a bit pink.
  • Season:  Spring - Early Fall
  • Special Care Note: Dahlia's stems have a lot of bacteria and should be placed away from other blooms in only a few inches of water. Water should be changed daily. Best to have professional refrigeration, as dahlias have a short vase life.
  • Flower Design Type: Accent Flower
  • Pros/Cons
  • Flower Care

The Good: When you have a few perfect blooms nothing can be more glorious! Especially with the dinner plate variety! Dahlias are very beautiful and exotic to look at and works perfect as a show-piece flower.

The Bad: Dahlias can be the pits to work with. They can look beautiful one day and horrible af the next, just tend to be very temperamental in general. They need their own separate container during the prep process and need to stay in a cool area. We typically only have 1-2 usable blooms per bunch. Bloom typically grows sideways facing, not facing up so can be difficult to work with. Soft, delicate petals with extremely short vase life.

  • Give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water.

Dahlias are considered an 'Accent Flower'. Based on our design suggestions here's our quantity recommendations:

  • Bridal Bouquet: 1-5 stems
  • Maids:  1-2 stems
  • Bouts:  N/A
  • Corsages: 1 stem
  • Centerpieces: 2-4 stems
  • Large Arrangements: N/A. Typically too short-stemmed.

Flower Moxie reserves the right to make changes or substitutions. All substitutions are only done as a last resort, and only when the reasons for doing so are reasonable and genuine. For example, if a flower becomes unavailable (off-crop), incorrect color, or not in good condition to grace a wedding function we will substitute a flower that has a similar color and price-point. 

Acceptable Subs:  Ranunculus, Garden Rose, Peony, another higher-end type flower in similar color palette.
