I had never done flowers before, but decided it would be fun to do the centerpieces for my daughters wedding. I left the arches and bouquets to the professionals because thought those would be too hard for my first try. Started learning about flower arranging, how to care for them, and what flowers were available a year ahead of the event. I made several small orders to practice. I wanted to see what they were like when they were delivered, how long they would last, and of course if I could make a pleasing arrangement. I ordered from several floral sites that sent very nice flowers but FiftyFlowers really impressed me with their customer service. Each order was backed up by a phone call to make sure the order was correct, which I found out was very important when an order from another flower site during one of my test orders, went to the wrong address! Great learning experience and thank you FiftyFlowers for making sure everything was on the right track. The emails of shipment confirmation also helped me to keep track of what flowers were arriving on time and as I am sure when you place this big an order some things sometimes do not arrive on time, but FiftyFlowers did their best to make sure everything was on my doorstep in time for the wedding. Great job!! The wedding was beautiful, and the flowers were a hit! We did a blush color theme with bird feeders down the isle, bird cages and tall martini glass arrangements in wreath bases with bird accents, and candle birdcages on the cocktail tables, they were all wonderful.
