Tulips out of season forcing

I have been approached by a new gardener who is engaged and planning a wedding next August 2009.  She lives in the Northeast U.S.  This new gardener wants to decorate with her favorite flower: Tulips.
I don't see this happening, but I am hardly an expert.
If money were no object (in which case couldn't she order them from a South American importer?), does anyone have the precise temperature/length for holding next Spring's bulbs (which she is buying as we speak) those several months longer than Nature intended?
Ignorance is such bliss.  But maybe I'm just not informed.
