What started out as a rainy May day in Clinton, NJ turned into a beautiful sunny celebration at the Red Mill Museum Village. Everything from the flowers to the weather turned out perfectly.
I am so glad that I decided to go with DIY flowers from FiftyFlowers! Not only were they all beautiful, but being able to process and assemble the centerpieces and bouquets with my closest friends and family was a blast ! We will always have those memories and it gave me so much more pride knowing that my family, friends, and I completed all of the beautiful flower arrangements on our own! Not to mention we saved a ton of money along the way :)
When the flowers arrived is seemed like a daunting task, but if you have a team around you it is very doable! We had a big brunch on Friday morning before the wedding . We organized an assembly line to complete the centerpieces and lanterns. The centerpieces were made in mercury gold vases with 2-3 coral hydrangeas . The lanterns were simple with water beads, a few carnations, and eucalyptus spread along the bottom. It took the morning and about 7 people to finish them all. My MOH and I tackled the 6 bouquets right after rehearsal dinner-- it was so much fun ! The base of the bridal bouquet was 5 big beautiful peonies. We then surrounded them with peach roses, white lace, eucalyptus, and carnations. The bridesmaid bouquets were a bit smaller, but with the same ingredients. The peonies were absolutely gorgeous and by far my favorite flower out of the bunch! We also had so much extra eucalyptus that we spread it out amongst the outdoor venue and it looked lovely!
I would recommend FiftyFlowers to any bride looking to DIY wedding flowers!
