A Modern Vintage Wedding

Dolores Thomas (Mom) Lexington, KY
I offered to be the florist for my step-sons wedding to help them stay within a budget. The bride had certain flowers that she had her heart set on, and after searching local flower supplies, I decided to order on-line. The prices at Fifty Flowers were competitive to local prices. Everything arrived at the same time and after following the directions for overnight hydration, were ready to use in bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and centerpieces. I had a problem with the dahlias and spoke to customer service. They gave me an immediate refund. I had so many other flowers from my order that I didn't miss the dahlias. I didn't anticipate some of the blooms to be so large and I actually used ... less flowers in the bouquets that I thought I would. I never took on such a brave project and it turned out to be enjoyable and I'd definitely do it again. I highly recommend Fifty Flowers for an unbeatable selection of flowers and outstanding Customer Service! Show more

Flowers Used for Dolores Thomas's Arrangements

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

These white Hydrangeas were the centerpiece of the brides bouquet and made spectacular centerpieces for guest tables and other table decorations. They were very healthy and hearty after overnight hydration and were much larger than I expected. They lasted almost 2 weeks after the wedding! They were very easy to work with and provided an easy traditional look for the wedding. I was pleased with the quality of the blooms and I'd definitely order them again!

These Hydrangeas are truly "Giant". One bloom was used for each of the bridesmaids bouquets with other filler flowers added. They arrived a little thirsty but after overnight hydration, they were healthy and hearty. They provided the perfect antique hue that I was hoping to achieve. I also used them for centerpieces at the table for the wedding guests and in several arrangements surrounding the cake and bridal table. The size will amaze you. They don't require other flowers to fill a vase, but work well with white, cream, pink and greens. I highly recommend these lovely hydrangeas

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

These delicate and very fragrant flowers were used in bouquets. They opened nicely after overnight hydration and were a major component of the bouquets, at the brides request. They provided a light pink hue that softened the antique hydrangeas that were also used. Plus, they provided an awesome scent to the bouquet. Be careful, they are delicate and petals will fall easily. They were healthy and were a delightful component to the bouquets. I would definitely order these Peonies again!

Another fantastic bloom from Fifty Flowers! These roses were hearty and healthy and long lasting. They provided a soft pink glow and were a delightful addition to traditional, old fashioned looking bouquets. They were also sturdy enough for corsages and boutonnieres and didn't require constant water like a hydrangea would. I was extremely pleased with the color and size of these blooms and I would definitely order them again!

These flowers were super cute and made a great filler flower. I used them in everything - bouquets, centerpieces, corsages and boutonnieres. Each stem came with one fully bloomed flower and one bud, which provided much more than I needed. They came in a variety of colors ranging from white to pink with a soft blended pink and white in between, so they were a perfect compliment to the other flowers I used. For example, I used one rose for a boutonniere and flanked that rose with 2 lisianthus flowers. For corsages, I used 2 roses and 3-4 lisiantus blooms and the buds just softened the entire look. They were long lasting and easy to work with, and I'd definitely these outstanding complimentary flowers again!

Used for: Bridal Bouquet

I was disappointed with these Dahlias. The bride really wanted white dahlias in her bouquet, so I ordered these. There were many blooms, but they were not fully opened and never fully opened after overnight hydration and flower food. They had an unhealthy, not fully "ripe" look to them and some of them had brown spots on the petals. I called customer service at Fifty Flowers and they refunded me most of the cost of this component of my order. I was extremely pleased with their refund. I tried to use a few of the better looking blooms in the brides bouquet, but they never achieved the presence in the bouquet that we hoped for. So, overall, I would not order these flowers again, but I'm happy that Fifty Flowers Customer Service took care of me in a timely manner. I'd definitely order from Fifty Flowers again even though these particular flowers didn't work. Thanks Fifty Flowers!

These roses were fantastic. They really opened after overnight hydration and were larger than I anticipated, so they went a long way! I thought I would use more in the bouquets, but because they were so big, I didn't need as many and I was able to use them in other ways - in table decorations. They were very hearty and easy to work with. The color was off white, the perfect complement to the other flowers I used, and really enhanced the vintage feel of the wedding. They lasted forever, looking fresh almost 2 weeks after the wedding! I would definitely order these lovely roses again.
