When Shayne’s mom submitted a Flower Story I got so excited because she used one of the real weddings from our “Make This Look” section! We love creating real DIY wedding flower inspirations and we are overjoyed to see our brides are using this tool! We know the hardest part can be figuring out quantities, so we made it easier than ever. Our MTL feature has a recipe builder built right in to adjust to your floral/arrangement needs. This feature also allows you to shop their look or part of it by one click of a button. What I love most about this feature is the ability to make it your own, which is exactly what Shayne did. All of her floral arrangements were stunning. “We received so many compliments and questions about our flowers that we actually wrote about FiftyFlowers on our blog.” Shayne’s blog post is worth checking out if you’re a little unsure about DIYing your wedding flowers. “We hope more people are able to feel comfortable using FiftyFlowers to do their own flowers because you all are truly the best,” Shayne said. Scroll on to see how what she ordered to achieve look! Also, be prepared to be wowed by the beautiful floral arrangements!

“Something about love made us feel confident that we could do anything, including our own flowers at the wedding. We heard about FiftyFlowers and were so happy with the Bridal Shower flowers that we decided to skip the florist and order the wedding flowers. As the day grew closer, the fear of not really knowing how to make bouquets left us feeling nervous. The anxiety was soon replaced by joy as a few friends joined in to help construct 6 bouquets, 6 corsages, and 12 boutonnieres. The simple and quick videos and the support of the staff allowed us to relax and enjoy the fun while making bouquets AND memories. It was one of the best experiences and everyone felt successful. The next day, our guests kept asking where the flowers came from and couldn’t believe we made them ourselves, but we have the pictures to prove it! We would highly recommend FiftyFlowers to DIY Brides for all of the beauty and a fraction of the cost of what professional flowers would cost.” – Kimberli Bontempo (Mom)
