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.

Flowers Used for Elizabeth Grittner's Arrangements

Royal Blue Textured Filler Flower Pack ( Medium Pack - 14 Bunches )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Corsages, Boutonnieres
Used for: Other

This was something I ordered just in case so I didn't use all that much for the wedding but it lasted a couple of weeks and still looked great. I wish I had known because I could have ordered it early and used more of it.

Italian Ruscus Greenery ( 10 bunches )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Corsages, Boutonnieres

This is lovely and can be cut into small pieces for smaller items like boutonnieres.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

Lovely, a little tricky timing the opening of the blooms but even unopened we loved the texture and interest they added to the bouquets.

Thistle Blue Flower ( 50 stems )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Corsages, Boutonnieres

We loved this flower, again it lasts long time so we could have ordered it early to make more arrangements. We had a lot left over.

Choose Your Own Eucalyptus Greenery Premium Pack ( Large Pack or 20 Bunches may choose up to 4 varieties )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Other

These also last a long time and came with nets on the flowers, we ordered way too many but they are great.

OASIS® Standard Floral Foam Bricks ( 24 Standard Floral Foam Bricks )

Ordered twice as much as needed. We will have one more wedding to use them.

Used for: Bridesmaid's Bouquets
Used for: Bridesmaid's Bouquets

This pack was amazing! The hydrangea were huge and really great, the rannunculus added a really nice shape to the bridal bouquet. The anemonies arrived mostly damaged and unusable but again, I ordered more than was needed because it was my first time.

Make Your Own Flower Centerpieces Combo Box ( Make Your Own Flower Centerpieces Combo Box )

Used for: Centerpieces

The roses that came with this pack were very distressed and never recovered. Luckily we had over ordered and it was not an issue.

White Spray Bulk Roses ( 6 Bunches (Allow 4 Business days for delivery) )

The timing for optimal opening is an art. Warm water and sunlight helped.
