I am not a bride nor did I have an event. I am a regular person who wanted to send her mom the best quality flowers possible, knowing that my mom could process and arrange her own flowers. She is thrilled. After a very disappointing ProFlowers experience - they used to be great- I finally was able to get her a huge bouquet of the perfect hot pink roses that arrived ready to start opening. For this price from a floral delivery service she would only have gotten a few measly stems, probably halfway through their lifespan. And the people at FiftyFlowers were unbelievably nice and helpful. We are thrilled.
