  • Pros/Cons
  • Flower Care
  • Quantity Help
  • Subs
  • The Good: Orchids feel so classy, modern, and high-end. We find they are typically long-lasting and hardy little blooms that work well in all arrangements.

When designing, you can cut off individual blooms and place them in a water tube, OR, if you wanna keep it easy, cut and glue the bloom into your bouquet or centerpiece using floral glue/adhesive. This can be done the day of your event and the orchid will hold up well!

 

  • The Bad:  It's not uncommon to have 1-3 orchid blooms have a tear in the petal when it arrives. Not every bloom will be perfect, but the majority should be. Pluck any bad petal off or angle it in a way it's concealed.
  • Gently remove from plastic bag.
  • Give your orchid a fresh cut, and place in clean water.
  • Make sure it's upright, maybe lean in a corner.
  • Keep away from extreme head or cold.

Orchids are considered an 'Accent Flower'. Based on our design ratios, here's our recommended quantity suggestion:

  • Bridal Bouquet: 1 stem, you can pluck off lower blooms
  • Maids:  1-3 blooms
  • Bouts:  1 bloom
  • Corsages: 1-2 blooms
  • Centerpieces: 1-3 blooms

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. Watch our video on substitutions to learn more.

Acceptable Subs:  Mini cymbidium, or another orchid that matches well with your palette.
