two receptions....flowers?

 I am having two receptions only a week apart, do I have to get new flowers (boquets and boutiners) for the second reception? or will they last and still look pretty?

    I'm not sure why you'd need bouquets for a second reception? 

    Bouquets and bouts are pretty much done by the end of the night, so you'd need new ones. Even a centerpiece in water is optimistic a week out.

    Maybe think about doing a mix of silk and fresh flowers (or all artificial, even) so that you can reuse some of them.  It's just a double reception, not double ceremony, right?  If no ceremony, then you don't need to have the corsages/bouts/bouquets.  Just a toss one for you.

    <div>Yes, why would you need bouqets and bouts a week later?  Those are really more ceremony props. I would do non-floral decorations for the 2nd reception. </div>
