A Fairytale Fall Wedding

Ashlee Clayton (Bride) DENHAM SPRINGS, LA
As my new husband and I left our wedding venue, we kept talking about how perfect the entire day was! It was so hard to put it into words. One decision I took a lot of time to decide was to use a florist or DIY flowers. Once making the decision to go DIY, I never looked back. I got inspiration on Pinterest, wedding message boards and even many flower stories on Fiftyflowers.com. I did two phone consultations with Violet and she was amazing in making sure I was selecting the right flowers to make my vision come to life. My mom and I did most of the planning. Her amazing group of friends- the Sassy Sisters- (they have all known me since I was little) were the ones who helped us execute everything. ... We weren't able to use the venue to arrange our flowers, so we rented a conference room for a few hours, which turned out to be the perfect setup. There were great memories made while making the arrangements. Even though this was the day before the wedding, there was almost no stress! We received so many compliments on how beautiful everything was. Everything came together even better than I ever envisioned! The pictures we have will help us remember this day and how simply perfect it all was. Show more

Flowers Used for Ashlee Clayton's Arrangements

These were another great filler. We ended up getting 2 varieties based on availability at the time. The burgundy colored ones and the white ones. They were so wispy and pretty and we used them in most of the arrangements.

I loved these roses as well. The quicksand roses were so classic looking and the dusty pink color went so well with our colors. Again, another beautiful flower with the burgundy flowers.

Another great greenery. We even used the seeded sprigs to add extra texture and filler to the arrangements. This euc is so much fun to work with.

I LOVE the silver dollar euc and the smell was amazing. This greenery was what I envisioned from the beginning of planning flowers and they did not disappoint. I know many reviews say they had a ton extra, and we did get so much! But, for the arrangements we did, I should have ordered 5 more bunches! These were simply amazing.

There aren't enough stars for these! As we were processing these on the first day, I was so giddy about them and kept telling my MoH how much I loved these. They are one of the most gorgeous flowers I've ever seen. And they became even more beautiful over the next 2 days. I wish I'd ordered a few more. They were phenomenal. The color is a beautiful antique pink, slight coral and they went so well with the burgundy colors we had.

Classic Peach Garden Rose ( 36 Garden Roses )

I liked these, I just kept going back and forth between these and the Juliet peach garden roses. But, these helped us stretch our budget more. These were just a lighter color that I wanted, but they did work well to help tone things down in the arrangements and added a subtle pop of peach. They were similar in appearance to the quicksand roses, just more peach.

This was another one we wish we had more of. These were such a unique and perfect filler. The astilbe added height and texture to the arrangements. We used them in all the arrangements, even some of the boutonnieres. The pink was a lighter pink and went well with the colors we had.

I'm only docking these because these didn't make it. Fifty Flowers customer service was amazing in trying to get them to us on time, but they wouldn't budge out of customs. After a 2 day delay, they refunded these because that was not up to Fifty Flowers' standards. This is just another example of what makes this company so great. I was just bummed because these were the reason I decided to go diy for flowers. I stumbled upon Protea 2 years ago as I started wedding planning. I wasn't sure what florists in our area had the ability to get Protea. A few I knew that used them were just so pricey. This was such an affordable way to get everything I envisioned.

Fall Terracotta Flower ( 9 Bunches or 90 Stems )

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

Theses were so beautiful! I wanted these from the get go as a replacement for burgundy dahlias, which I'm sure are beautiful in their own right. But, the Fall Terracotta flower helped us get so much more for the money. There had beautiful burgundy and terracotta hues and they opened up so well! They lasted for several days after the wedding, too! A perfect fall color and good substitution for dark red/burgundy.

These were an amazing color of burgundy. They made such a beautiful filler. Carnations really are beautiful flowers.
