Brittney won $1,000 worth of flowers from FiftyFlowers in a contest we did with WeddingBee in September of last year. Jealous? Then Join our Win your Wedding Flowers Contest in which you can win the Full Cost of your Wedding Flowers plus 2 Apple Watches! But back to Brittney… She was so happy with her flowers that she came back to share her story and now, I am going to share it with you!
Not all of our Brides DIY. Some have a friend or family member that is willing to take care of the flowers and some choose to have a wedding planner or florist take care of it all, which is what Brittney decided to do. Brittney said, “Our arrangements were styled and assembled by our wedding planner, Amore Events by Cody, who was absolutely amazing. She developed the style concept, ordered the flowers for us, assembled all the arrangements and bouquets and delivered them to us on the day.” So how did FiftyFlowers become involved? Brittney said she had been following us for a while after discovering FiftyFlowers on Pinterest. “I love floral arrangements and am trying to get better at doing my own so it made sense to find wholesale distributors for them.” So when she saw our contest, she entered and won!
Brittney gave her wedding planner some ideas of what types of flowers and colors she liked but ultimately left the creative freedom to her. So with $1,000 to spend at FiftyFlowers, her wedding planner choose the following flowers: 72 stems Pink Antique Garden Roses, 2 boxes of our Rustic Wedding Flowers Combo (which included, 8 bunches Silver Brunia, 6 bunches Bear Grass, 60 Scabiosa Pods, 4 bunches Hanging Amaranthus and 4 bunches Dusty Miller), 5 bunches of Seeded Eucalyptus, and 1 25 foot Ruscus, Plumosa, and Sprengeri Greens Garland. She then added some locally sourced blooms to the mix.
From the Bride, “Our wedding day was all about family, friends, love and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains where I grew up. The theme was rustic and elegant but cozy. We wanted every one of we guests to feel relaxed, comfortable, and essential to the day (because they were!). Everyone, including the vendors, was connected to the family in some way.”
