Autumn Bliss

Johanna Tyler (Bride) FISHERS, IN
My sister married her best friend on a beautiful, sunny November day in Indianapolis. The flowers were amazing: lush, abundant, and very generous in both size and number. I was beyond pleased with both the quality and customer service. While I knew there was an arbor available at her venue, because I was concerned about flower quantity and time, I hadn't really planned to use it. I'm so glad we did! We had so much eucalyptus left over from the bouquets and centerpieces, that I would have loved the arbor even if we had just used that. As it was, though, we had a few anemones, garden roses, and peonies too that we added. All the flowers were so large that I ended up needing fewer for each bouquet ... than expected. To stretch the flowers more we used lanterns on half the tables (which I think made the room more interesting too) and floral centerpieces on the other half. I kept the centerpieces simple with mostly willow and silver dollar eucalyptus, adding just a few flower stems to each. That let us keep most the flower focus on her bridal bouquet and arbor, surrounding the bride and groom with beautiful flowers during their sweet ceremony. Show more

There were a few smaller buds, which were actually perfect for the corsages as the regular size is really too large for either a pin-on or wrist corsage. Mostly, though, these were very large and opened beautifully. Favorite flower by far! We only ordered 50, and I thought that was perfect -- plenty for all bouquets and a few for centerpieces. Even though they're not cheap, they really create a romantic statement and a few go a long way.

Loved it! Probably less of an impact than the silver dollar, but it lays differently in bouquets so adds a nice touch (cascades a bit).

Could have done without blue eucalyptus. It came covered in either fungus or fungicide -- couldn't tell which -- and we ended up putting it aside and not even really touching it. It was weird bc nothing else had that problem at all. In fact, everything else was super healthy and generously portioned. Would only get silver dollar and willow in future.

Used for: Corsages, Boutonnieres

These were the perfect size for the boutonnieres. I will say, though, that customer service encouraged a Thursday delivery for a Sunday wedding, and these were probably the only flowers that really shouldn't have been delivered that early. They were starting to fall apart by the end of the evening.

We were given extra anemones as ranunculus were unavailable. It was not a problem and was communicated early on. I have to say that I think this combo is a perfect way to get a variety of beautiful stems for a great price. While I had planned to add these to the boutonnieres, the stems were too soft to work with wire so only went in the groom's. These are so striking (and I had extra) that I did a straight bunch smaller bouquet for the bridal table. It got lots of compliments!

A little underwhelming. Most of these were lovely, but there were some usable ones and a few that I knew would be barely last the night. In general, I would recommend these for corsages and bouquets, but I would limit the order. I'm also not sure there's that much difference between some of these types -- I know flowers, and I had a hard time telling them apart.
