2020 Wedding Take #3

Elizabeth Grittner (Mom) WHEATON, IL
After planning and planning and planning, my daughters wedding it was a beautiful sunny day in July. I would do the flowers for our next daughter's wedding, of course with the help of Fifty Flowers. They were fantastic, I did order more than I needed by about $300.00 but better that than too few. I stored them in the basement in storage tubs which was key in July to have a cool dark place. I had three helpers who were invaluable to make all the arrangements in time for the wedding.
