At Home Farm Wedding

Emily McMahan (Bride) New Carlisle, OH
I loved my experience with FiftyFlowers and I literally want everyone to know - Shout it from the rooftop! I was quoted from local florists for wedding flowers and when I realized the actual stem count and the price I was paying I was shocked. I was even more upset because I really was not going to get the wedding flowers I have always dreamt of even at that price. So, I did a little Google search and stumbled on! Originally, we had decided that we would have a small wedding at our home for our family, so when I had gone to the florist my needs were much smaller. Although, needless to say, as the planning process proceeded the wedding got bigger and bigger and with FiftyFlowers ... I was able to accommodate all my needs even cheaper than my original florist quote! Besides the amazing quality and quantity of flowers I received, I had the most amazing customer service from this company! I loved the online chat, if I had a quick question it was answered in minutes. Ordering flowers online is very intimidating but FiftyFlowers made it so easy for me. When I set up a time to speak to a flower specialist I was amazed with her knowledge, expertise and willingness to help! We were able to speak on the phone and then utilize the live chat tool to share inspiration photos and links for suggestions of flowers! I had more confidence in my representative from FiftyFlowers than I had in the florist I met face-to-face! FiftyFlowers also had amazing communication when it came to order confirmations, shipping details, and care instructions! I had so much fun arranging my flowers, I did it all myself so I promise you to can too! I was sure to change out my water often. For my centerpieces in candy dishes I used waterproof floral tape and made a grid that supported the stems and flowers. I also used lanterns with floral foam on the inside to place my flowers and to keep them hydrated! I allowed my bridesmaids make their own bouquets so they were all uniquely different. I also delegated the task of corsages and boutonnieres to the bridesmaids and I think they did a fabulous job! I was completely thrilled with my wedding flowers and I received so many compliments from my guest! My wedding photographer even stated that they were probably the best flowers she has ever seen and could not believe I did them myself! Our wedding was very relaxed, family fun day on our farm. I am glad I never really chose a "color scheme" for my wedding, which allowed me to really play with all types of blooms. The consultation I had with the expert on the phone made sure that my flower arrangement would be amazing and aesthetically pleasing! I really do not think I could say enough about! Show more

Flowers Used for Emily McMahan's Arrangements

Tropical Bellini Garden Roses up close
Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Other

I loved these Bellini garden roses! Outstanding quality! The blooms on these roses were massive! They stayed fresh for weeks after my event. I was so excited to watch these bloom into the most unique roses I have ever seen. They really stood out in my arrangements and the color was true to it's name, Tropical Bellini!

White Freesia Flower ( 80 to 100 stems )

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

The White Freesia was amazing. When I received these flowers they were all completely buds! By the time I went to us these flowers the bud had bloomed into the prettiest white flower. I was trilled with how they completed my arrangements!! I will be ordering these again!

Blue Thistle Wedding Flowers Close up

Thistle Blue Flower ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

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

Perfect to add texture to my arrangements. I love how study these flowers were, I was never worried about them when messing with them to change the water or to use them! I love these thistles!!!! My order did not have the dome like bloom like the picture displays but I loved them anyways!

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

This greenery was very messy - but completely worth it! I had so so so many great compliments on this greenery! The stems were a little flimsy so to make them stronger I would wrap floral tape about 2-3 inches wide around the stem in some spots to help support the weight of the hanging blooms- this was very helpful in the bouquets where I had placed the greenery around the base of the flowers!

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

I had never even heard of Scabiosa before my wedding but I am so glad I ordered them. These blooms were perfect to add a finishing touch to all my arrangements! It was easy just to slip in into my large arrangements or to use them in the corsages and boutonnieres!

Golden Peach Petite Roses up close
Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Corsages, Boutonnieres, Other

These roses were amazing quality. Although for me, they never open quite like the display picture shows and were not what I was hoping for. The shipment of these roses I received had about about 8-12 hot pink guard petals that had to be removed for the look I was going for. The roses were indeed beautiful but they were more of a structured standard rose than a ruffled open flower.

Pink Ice Protea Flower ( 35 Protea Stems )

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

KILLER aesthetics - I loved these proteas! I will repeat - I LOVED these proteas! The deep dark center paired well with my burgundy flowers and the Iced center really pulled the sunlight into the bloom making it look fabulous in our bouquets! I had so many questions and interest in these flowers!!! I love how they stand out so much in my photos also. These are a tough stem to cut, and I was prepared with some strong shears but I still had to put a little muscle into it!!!

Minerva Purpleberry Wholesale Carnations Up close

Carnation Flower Burgundy Moonlight ( 6 bunches, 150 stems )

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

Bang for your buck!!!! I really did not like the thought of having carnations being apart of my wedding flowers- but I am soo glad I included these! They are not your typical carnation! They fully opened and I was amazed with how beautiful they were! Do not hesitate in ordering these flowers- it was so nice that I had so many on hand to add amazing color to all my arrangements!!!!! I would def order these again!

Seeded Eucalyptus flowers for Weddings
Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Corsages, Boutonnieres, Other

My favorite greenery! I am so glad I ordered 10 bunches of the eucalyptus. I used this everywhere possible! It really was very versatile - I could use a whole stem for large arrangements or break off small seed and leaves for a boutonniere!

Antique Blue Jumbo Hydrangea Wholesale Flower Up Close
Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Other

JUMBO is right! I pulled these out of the box and they were literally as big as my head! The next morning after a cool bath and fresh cut these hydrangea were literally amazing! My blooms all changed different colors it was fascinating to watch them change over the week- some of them were a nice olive color with a deep blue, others turned a little more antique blue with a cool green! I loved everything about these flowers. I used them as a base for my bouquets and then just pulled the steams of my roses and other flowers through the hydrangea. This allowed my bouquets to be really full looking without all the work! I also did this for my centerpieces, although the blooms were so big I had to spilt it into 2 or sometimes 3 and use one section as the base for my centerpieces! I loved having these hydrangeas paired with my flower selections but I can easily see how they would hold their own as an individual flower for a bouquet or arrangement!

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

Literally the biggest roses I have ever seen. I would say from the base of the rose to the very top of the bloom was easily 4 inches!! They were not the exact color I was expecting but the quality was amazing and I was still very happy with ordering these roses!
