I had so much fun (although admittedly there were stressful moments) arranging my own flowers for the wedding. I knew exactly what colors I wanted, and FiftyFlowers made it easy to browse for flowers that fit my budget within that color scheme. They also made it easy to know how to care for them upon arrival. The flowers all came as scheduled on Thursday, and I did the initial prep by myself to get them into water. On Friday, one of my bridesmaids and I knocked out all the arrangements in a few hours, with a few extra sets of hands for the last hour. Centerpieces were easy to arrange ourselves as we used quart sized mason jars with frog lids. The flowers held up beautifully for the wedding and for several days after, and we received many compliments and sent some centerpieces home with family.
I did have to substitute the red astilbe flowers with hypericum berries last minute due to them not being available, but FiftyFlowers was very helpful in making the change, and I ended up loving the berries. It's good to have a backup or two in mind for each of your flowers just in case--it will save you some panic down the road!
Thank you FiftyFlowers for helping me achieve the look I wanted at a price I could afford. I definitely picked up some new knowledge and skills along the way too that I wouldn't have if I had gone through a florist! I'm looking forward to another excuse to use FiftyFlowers in the future and am confident in recommending them to friends.
