My husband and I were together for 8 years prior to his proposal. We had both pursued graduate schooling, moved across the country (and back again), and wanted to pursue various ventures prior to tying the knot. Our families joked that it may never come, but we knew what we wanted and didn't feel rushed into the legalities of it. This wedding was more than I hoped for. Neither of us had many stipulations...I did not want to be hot/sweaty on the day of my wedding and I didn't want to worry about rain. He wanted a black suit (no tux) and an open bar. Easy right? Thankfully my mother and sister are incredible DIY(ers) so we built our "wedding plan" to accommodate my Type A personality and off we went! Having graduate student loan debt also meant making choices that could accommodate a smaller budget. I started hunting for wholesale florists and stumbled upon Fifty Flowers. I loved all of the selections, reviews, and photos that other brides were posting. I probably created 10 different orders trying to decide what I wanted prior to speaking with Wendy who was able to put my concerns about ordering "enough" at ease. Shipping was fantastic, everything was packaged wonderfully, directions to ensure successful blooms were detailed appropriately. For someone, such as myself, without a green thumb, Fifty Flowers made it easy. We received so many compliments about our flowers and two weeks later they are still alive and thriving. Definitely worth spending the money. If you are a new bride, I highly, highly recommend Fifty Flowers.
