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 FiftyFlowers.com!
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 FiftyFlowers.com!
