My wedding flowers were a dream come true....
Margaret Cook (Bride) Tampa, FL
I could not have been happier with the quality and timeliness of my flowers. I looked at pictures of hundreds of bouquets and dozens of bulk-order websites before placing my order with Fifty Flowers for cream polo roses, hot pink alstromerias, and dark blue irises. (I used my own greens from the shrubs and lillies in my backyard.) I picked Fifty Flowers because of their ratings on the general wedding planning websites and from reading testimonials like this one.. I have NEVER written on online testimonial before, so I hope this will give you some faith in ordering bulk... from strangers... from a foreign country.... delivered ... you hope... on time... by fedex.. after you've already given them a credit card. Some people will think we are nuts. I think we're brilliant, and frugal, and creative, and love flowers! It also gave me special time with my girlfriend as we drank mimosas and made the arrangements! We used some of my beautiful bowls from my china cabinet which rarely get used. None of them matched, but they all were unique and beautiful. We used floral foam, water proof tape and serrated edge scissors. There was no flower food, and we didn't use/make any. I made my hand-tied bouquet and wrapped it with stem tape and then ribbon. (watch some you-tube videos to see how to spiral the flowers into a bouquet. It took me two tries to get it right..) We made 7 Large-sized centerpieces, 3 Medium sized centerpieces, 3 Small centerpieces and my bouquet. I used a lot of greens from my back yard, and bought 100 alstromerias, 100 irises, and 75 roses from FiftyFlowers.com
Ladies (and gentlemen), If you love flowers, you cannot screw this up. Go for it and have a ball. It will add a little more stress, but a lot more happiness and satisfaction! I hope that you enjoy looking at the pics as much as we did arranging the flowers. :-)
