Boho Outdoor Georgia Wedding
Taylor Whitcraft (Bride) SAINT SIMONS ISLAND, GA
My husband and I planned a "destination wedding" on an island a few hours from our home last April and it was the best day of my life. We had a very small budget & I decided to do my own flowers (which I had no experience with) but I watched a ton of videos & read all kinds of stories here to help me. Even though our budget was small, flowers were one of the things I did not want to miss out on. I ordered my flowers & also had to have them delivered several hours before we arrived at our Airbnb on the island. The temperature was in the high 70s and I was worried they would be damaged but when I arrived, I took them out of the box and put them directly into some 10-gallon paint buckets
to give them breathing room. I used about 7 buckets & probably could have stood to have another 1 or 2 for reference! I'm not gonna lie, I was terrified when I saw the flowers, they looked dead...wilted & hanging, I was freaked out but I prayed about it & when I woke up the next morning they blossomed and beautiful!! My mother, MIL & bridesmaids all took a few hours that evening after the rehearsal pulling the bouquets together & it was honestly so much fun. They each made different bouquets of greenery for themselves, we made the boutonnieres and then started working on my bouquet. The next morning the flowers looked even more beautiful and the garden roses had bloomed even more to make them even bigger. I wanted something relaxed, bohemian, wild and beautiful and it was exactly what I imagined. I used the extra flowers in random vases on the tables and used all of the mixed greenery to make garlands for each table. I honestly felt so beautiful with my bouquet, it fit my personality to a T and I can't imagine how I would have felt without it. I thought I had to spend hundreds of dollars to get the bouquet of my dreams but instead, I spend about $600 total on my entire wedding florals/greenery and could not have been happier. I got soo many compliments on the bouquets and people have actually reached out to me to see who created them. There was something special about taking that night to spend with the women in my life that mean the most and creating the flowers for my wedding. Needless to say, GO WITH FIFTYFLOWERS. I never leave reviews because I never stop to take the time to do it but I had to share my story with FiftyFlowers. I'm the type of person who overthinks everything but if I can help any bride out there on a budget or even someone who is wanting to create their own floral arrangements for their big day, I can't recommend FiftyFlowers enough. Not only were they beautiful but their customer service was outstanding. I would use them again if I could do it all over again. My wedding was everything I dreamed of thanks to them. Cheers!
