We felt as if we really lucked out with Fifty Flowers. Never having used an online flower wholesaler, it felt like somewhat of a risk at first, but we were determined to keep our budget low and have lots of DIY projects for our wedding. The flowers showed up exactly as scheduled, and we even received text updates as they were being shipped and once they were delivered. The flowers themselves arrived closed, but opened up beautifully in the day before the wedding. We had a very easy time cleaning them up and cutting the stems for bouquets and centerpieces. It actually proved to be a fun bonding project, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to be a little hands-on. We would absolutely use Fifty Flowers again and I\'m recommending them to all my newly engaged friends!
