A Swiss Girl Marries An Aussie Boy In Los Angeles

Magali Smolik (Bride) Topanga Canyon, CA
I'm originally from Switzerland and my husband is from Australia. When we decided to get married we knew it would be hectic to gather everyone in one place. We decided to have the wedding in LA since this is where we met, and somewhat in the middle of Switzerland and Australia. It was hard to plan everything especially since both of our families were so far away. We knew our mothers (both Christines!) wanted to help us with the wedding, and it was very important for them to make the flowers since it's kind of their thing. We learned of FiftyFlowers through a blog and it saved us so much time, money and energy! We made all the flowers the day before with both our moms and my bridesmaid Melanie. ... It was a lot of work but it was such a bonding time and a good distraction from the stress of the next day. We were so pleased with the results! Our wedding was a big melting pot of different cultures coming together, and our guests had so much fun! Show more

Flowers Used for Magali Smolik's Arrangements

Pinksicle Rose Petals ( 3,000 Rose Petals )

Used for: Other

These were beautiful! My only regret is that my wedding coordinator used only one bag rather than all of them for the aisle... So it didn't look like there was much at all but you can still see all the nice colors. Be aware that they are slippery when you walk on them, watch out :)

Classic Wedding Greenery Combo Box ( Small Pack 13 Bunches )

Used for: Centerpieces , Boutonnieres, Other

This is a great combo, worked very well for what we needed to make.

OASIS™ Single Foam Brick Tray ( 24 OASIS™ Single Brick Trays )

Used for: Centerpieces

It was exactly what we needed to make our centerpieces. We wanted something inexpensive as we had 16 centerpieces to make. We were able to cover the tray easily with the flowers. It was easy to transport as well which was a important point for us.

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

Nice color, perfect for our bouquets and small enough for my flower crown.

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

Great cream color, worked very well for our centerpieces and my flower crown. It was so pretty and looks even better in person.

White Mini Carnation Flowers ( 8 Bunches or 80 Stems )

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

They were perfect, very white, lasted for days after the event. This is my go to flower as it's so versatile and lasts a very long time.

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

This is a great combo, worked very well for what we needed to make.

Used for: Other

They arrived very dehydrated and were unusable. I wouldn't buy again.

Tweedia Flower White ( 5 Bunches )

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

This was perfect for my thin flower crown. It's a little delicate but it worked great for that purpose. Perfect if you need small detailed flowers.

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

They were beautiful, the colors were as the photo with various shades a little darker. Keep in mind that they are very delicate. We lost a few heads at arrival (which we were reimbursed for). Also I would recommend buying some metal wire to pin them if you're going to use them in oasis.

Peony Rose Bridal Piano ( 36 Peony Garden Roses )

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

Beautiful big roses. I wanted peonies for my wedding but unfortunately it wasn't the season. So these roses were a great replacement for peonies. They looked fabulous and were great for my arch, centerpieces and bouquets.

Daisy White Spray Dahlia Style Flower ( 6 Bunches (allow 4 business days for delivery) )

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

These were beautiful, they were big and perfect for centerpieces and bouquet as well as our arch. We had extra and they lasted for days!

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

Used for: Centerpieces

It was exactly as advertised, it worked great. It fits the "single foam brick tray" perfectly.

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

Beautiful flowers, but I was a bit disappointed as we only received one type of roses. It wasn't a combo as shown in the photos.

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

They were beautiful, same color as the photo. However keep in mind that they are very delicate. We lost a few heads at arrival (which we were reimbursed for). Also I would recommend buying some metal wire to pin them if you're going to use them in oasis.

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

They were perfect, very nice color, lasted for days after the event. This is my go to flower as it's so versatile and lasts a very long time.
