A friend of mine had fake ones make and they looked so beautiful!
The fake ones are almost a foam-like material - sounds weird but so gorgous.

You may find that real ones on the day will bruise & go brown.

If you want to see a pic let me know and I can send you one. I can also find out the supplier if you would like.

Sarah - I was bridesmaid for my cousin a few years ago and we had frangipani bouquets. The local florist did them for her so you may want to find a local florist or do you have a Pearsons or someone like that you could speak to about it.

As for bruising our flowers were fine. I was not at all gentle with the bouquet and i did not notice any browning on the flowers until the next morning after they had been in the fridge overnight. They looked so gorgeous in all the photos and smelt amazing!

You will find that florists will all have a personal preference on whether to work with frangipani's or not. I know some that will not touch them, and others who don't have a problem with it at all. They aren't a long lasting flower and are prone to browning so that is why not everyone will use them.
You just need to ask around until you find one that will (but make sure you see photos of their work so you can be confident with them). Maybe look at websites of some florists around you and see if they have any frangipani bouquets in their galleries. Or even just giving them a quick phone call because asking them won't hurt (although the ones that don't use them might try to talk you out of them, so be prepared).
