I am a DIY bride trying to save as much money as possible, wherever possible. I came across Fifty Flowers while doing research on how to make my own bouquets and centerpieces. I decided to order 25 roses and 20 petite calla lilies to do a test run for my wedding in October. My wedding colors are plum and burgundy and the flowers I picked were perfect! Since my wedding is on a Friday, I made sure to have the flowers delivered on a Wednesday. The flowers arrived on time, in great condition and the service was great. As soon as I received them, I immediately cut an inch off of the stems and placed them in water. Later that evening, I experimented with putting 1 bouquet and 1 centerpiece together. They came out great! The flowers lasted for almost 4 days with little to no care. I mostly changed the water every other day. I stored them at room temperature just to see how they'd hold up. I am so relieved that they looked great and I can't wait to use them on my wedding day! Thanks Fifty Flowers!
