In Search of Orange Blossoms

HELP!  I really love the tradition behind the orange blossom in a bridal bouquet, but I can't seem to find them anywhere (using Google searches.)

Has anyone used this flower, and where did you find it?

  • unless you have an orange tree in your back yard your chances of finding orange blossoms are slim to none. It just isn't available on the commercial market

    I was afraid of that :(  I might have to go with my back up of stephanotis; those seem to be readily available.
  • I don't think they're going to be easy to find. I'm by no means an absolute expert, but I do know growing up in Phoenix where there were plenty of orange trees around they only bloomed once a year and only lasted a few weeks, which were always my few favorite weeks of the year because the whole city smelled amazing :)

    I would imagine the fact that they only bloom for a short while would make them very unseasonable and hard to find, unless of course you could pick them yourself.

  • Maybe you should try making some out of paper or crepe paper? If you have time to invest and take your time making them I wouldn't think they would look tacky?? just a thought ;)

  • You can always just insert a silk flower into a fresh bouquet.  Silk flowers come in so many different colors and variety of flowers and you really can't tell the difference.  Professionals do it for their photos all the time I hear.
