Simple Summer Wedding

We had a smallish wedding (~60 guests) and wanted to keep things inexpensive and DIY. Our colors were dark red, pale pink, and navy blue, so the Burgundy Blush pack was perfect. I have to admit, having flowers delivered in the mail was a little scary and they did look very ‘tired' when they arrived. I followed the recommendations and had them delivered 3 days before the wedding, and I trimmed the ends and kept them in water with plant food. By the evening of the first day, they had perked up, and by the morning of my wedding, had really bloomed! I had zero experience with flower-arranging, but the flowers were so big and gorgeous, it made preparing the centerpieces and bouquet really easy. I used one of the carnations and some rose leaves for my husband's boutonniere. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law helped to arrange the centerpieces the morning of the wedding. Even in the small pack there were plenty of flowers for 10 centerpieces and and a special centerpiece for the bride & groom table. I am in the process of drying some of the flowers because I want to preserve some of these gorgeous blooms forever! I got so many compliments on the flowers, and will be recommending FiftyFlowers to all of my friends when they get married.
