When planning a wedding, there are hundreds of decisions to make–from budget to venue, event date to guest list–and one decision more and more couples are making is to DIY various aspects of their event. It enables you to add a personal touch to your big day, as well as creating an opportunity for friends and family members to get involved in helping prepare, not to mention the money it saves. One option that fits the bill is DIYing your wedding flowers. While the task may seem daunting, we’ve been shown time and time again by our brides that even the most novice florists can totally pull this off! Check out our Flower Stories section to see for yourself!
If you choose to go this route, here’s why you should partner up with FiftyFlowers for this endeavor:
1. You’re not in it alone!
We have a support staff ready to help every step of the way, from choosing your flowers all the way through taking care of them once they arrive. Should you need some guidance in selecting flowers to fit your vision, we offer free phone consultations with our floral design experts! With over 10 years of wedding planning experience under their belt, they’re an amazing resource when it comes to determining appropriate quantities, tips on how to showcase a particular flower you love, steer you towards flowers that pair well together, and even arm you with flower-specific care tips for once they’re in your possession.
Whether or not you’ve enlisted your family or bridal party to assist in the floral arranging, you do have a well-trained team of Customer Service representatives readily available via phone or LiveChat to answer any questions, troubleshoot any problems you might face, or even just offer some guidance in the arranging process.
2. Our seasons don’t play by the rules.
Because we source our flowers from all over the world–Colombia, Holland, Thailand, Japan, Australia, Ecuador–we offer the ability to provide flowers outside of their usual seasonal availability. So if you have your heart absolutely set on a flower that’s ordinarily out of the question for your selected event date, don’t despair! We may just be able to work something out for you, or at the very least, work with you to come up with the best possible alternative.
3. We keep things fresh.
As you may know, if you follow us on social media, we are constantly getting products through the office here at FiftyFlowers. Sometimes this means we’re adding exciting new items to our selection, sometimes it’s a quality check to make sure that what our customers are receiving really matches what we show on the site. We have a full-time photographer on staff to ensure that we have as many up-to-date, high-quality photos as possible to help our customers make informed decisions.
4. We try to make selection a smoother operation.
With such a vast selection of products to choose from, the deliberation process can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. However, we try to make this a bit easier on you by breaking down our products by color and by holiday, as well as by flower type. We also offer a selection of DIY combo boxes to eliminate the guesswork as to which flowers complement each other best, and pre-arranged items if you’d prefer to avoid hand making your own boutonnieres and corsages.
5. Crisis management is in place.
All flowers are covered by a 100% Event Day Guarantee. The probability of a problem is very slim, but in the event, anything were to occur we have you covered with a 100% quality guarantee. We give our customers a call after the order is first placed to ensure that the correct quantities were ordered, shipping address was entered, and delivery dates were selected. Then, we send text confirmations once shipping is underway, and phone again when the flowers have been delivered to make sure everything arrived, offer care tips, and answer any questions you may have. If you do happen to experience any problems, just give us a call and our Customer Service team is here to help make things right.
