When my (now) husband and I started planning our wedding, we both agreed that we didn't want to spend more than we needed to. Since we're both fairly crafty people, I was certain that flowers were something we could do ourselves. After all, with no bride to cater to, there was at least one fewer bouquet than your traditional wedding.
We spent hours online looking at different flower vendors before deciding on Fifty Flowers. But we could not have been happier with the results. My sister, who works for a florist and wedding designer out of Jackson, WY helped me put together all of our arrangements and they turned out perfectly. Pinterest (of course) helped us achieve the exact look we were wanting. Everything was simple, elegant, and well under a normal flower budget. We had lots of people ask us who did our flowers, and we were proud to say that we had done everything ourselves (with the help and guidance of my sister of course!).
Despite everyone telling me that doing our own flowers would be too stressful, I could not have asked for a better experience. Having the ability to keep things really simple while also exercising creativity and truly making our own wedding was a wonderful experience. If I had to do it over, I would absolutely choose to do it the same way.
