A Jurassic Wedding In Wisconsin

Courtney Ritacco (Bride) Burlington, WI
Being an event manager at a wedding venue, I knew I wanted something different and out of the box for my own wedding. My Fiance and I have quite the love for all things Jurassic, So it was basically a no-brainer. Well, what kind of flowers do you have for a dinosaur wedding? You don't! All greenery is what I had envisioned for our day but couldn't find a florist who saw my vision or appreciated my theme. I ended up ordering a few things from a few different wholesale websites. I was a little nervous these would be skimpy or too scarce looking for bouquets. THEY WEREN'T! Believe me when I say the ONLY way to go is FiftyFlowers. Everything that came from elsewhere was dead or never came at all. ... (I was refunded but that doesn't help 3 days before the wedding date!!) These 'centerpieces' came beautiful and full. All they needed was a stem trim and some floral tape and some ribbon to finish them. Each bridesmaid had one "centerpiece" and my bouquet was one and a half put together(a sprig of faux hanging amaranths went into mine as well (ONLY because I didn't want to buy a whole bunch and only use a little in mine), and my other half went to my Jr Bridesmaid. We borrowed a small sprig here and there from the bridesmaids' bouquets to add to boutonnieres for the groomsmen. (We did use some curly succulents from a local place, again only cause we needed so little..) We got so many compliments on the all green bouquets and everyone wanted the name of our florist! I meet with brides and witness up to 3 weddings a weekend, I would never change the way I did mine! The ease and the amount of money I saved, the outstanding customer service and flawless delivery. Hands down 5 stars! Show more
