Having beautiful flowers was always a part of my wedding dream. However, after getting quotes, I was worried that my dreams wouldn't be able to be my reality. Luckily, a friend told me about FiftyFlowers and said that she tried it and would recommend it to any bride. I am so glad she told me about this, because it was an amazing experience. Being a corporate event planner, I was pretty confident I would put all of my arrangements and bouquets together (even after being told I was crazy for the 1000th time). I decided I would do all 17 centerpieces, my bouquet, all 5 bridesmaid bouquets, 2 flower girl bouquets, 10 boutonnieres and cake flowers. I had my consultation with Violet from FiftyFlowers and she was the BEST! She walked me through everything, calmed my nerves and we put together the most beautiful order. With a little Meghan Markle inspiration, we decided on hydrangeas, delphinium, bouvardia, garden and paper roses, astilbe, white stock, carnations, a variety of greenery and tweedia. Everything was delivered to my house on time and in perfect condition. Unfortunately, we were missing the tweedia, but FiftyFlowers refunded me immediately. Their customer service was awesome the entire process! My cousin and I prepped all of the flowers and got them into Home Depot buckets with some flower food. I bought flower shears, clear floral tape, green floral tape, foam, ribbon and all of my vases. We managed to make everything in about 6 hours with 3 people. We even had a bunch left over!
This process will be something that I will remember forever. I had so much fun putting everything together and making it look exactly the way I want (all while saving over $1,000!) I would recommend every bride to do this! Thanks, FiftyFlowers!
