My Mom, Leslie, found Fiftyflowers during our search for budget-friendly wedding ideas. Although I'm a little bit of a tightwad, I love flowers and wanted to incorporate as many as possible into our big day. The 200 roses, 300 carnations wedding combo box seemed like a great way to get the most bang for our buck. And it absolutely was!
The combo box was extremely versatile. Along with all of the bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and aisle decorations, we made special arrangements for the bridal party's table, cake table and dressing room. We made a flower crown for the flower girl and two large arrangements that sat next to our wedding arch. We were also able to make a large flower arrangement inside of a picnic basket given to us by my grandmother, who passed away just weeks before the wedding.
The only flowers that we didn't get from Fiftyflowers were the hydrangeas used for our flower wall. My mom grows hydrangeas in her garden and we dried them the summer before the wedding. That being said, roses and carnations were incorporated into the flower wall and added great pops of color.
The colors available in this combo box were wonderful and the flowers were absolutely beautiful. Although half of the spray roses did not arrive, a call to customer service got us some replacement flowers. We were not able to get the spray roses but received some gorgeous snapdragons instead! While I had not planned on snapdragons, they were exactly what my bridal bouquet needed!
My mom, sisters and I arranged all of the flowers the day before the wedding and set them up at the rehearsal. It was a bonding experience that I treasure and will never forget! I am extremely happy that we chose to work with Fiftyflowers!
