Let me first start off by saying, THANK YOU to Fifty Flowers for making my flower dreams a reality! They have so many options! And to be honest it was a little hard to narrow it down, because I loved them all! I knew I was going to do my flowers since day one. But I got quotes just to see if it would be worth the extra cost, and they quoted me almost $4,000! I got everything I needed for less than $1,500 and I had such a great time doing it! They were even more beautiful in person than I could have ever hoped for! These flowers were like my babies for two days, I stripped all the thorns and leaves Thursday night to make it easier for our flower making party. The morning of the day before my wedding, I had all of my bridesmaids over to help me assemble the centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages and prep. It was fun and relatively easy once I figured out the design. I had been preparing by using an excel spreadsheet to make sure I had enough flowers and I was so glad I did, because I had the PERFECT amount of flowers! If you are debating about DIYing your wedding flowers, prepare and research ahead of time and you will do great! And definitely use Fifty Flowers! From the customer service and phone calls after my order was placed, to the calls after each delivery, they make you feel like you have a best friend there to help you along the way. I was so in love with my flowers and I can't wait to find another excuse to use them in the future!
