Bright Beach Wedding

Meredith McGee (Friend) Ocean Isle Beach, NC
I created these flowers for my SIL for her wedding and everything turned out even better than we imagined. The flowers were awesome and we got so many compliments. Everything dealing with customer service was fantastic, from help ordering to immediate assistance when there was a small issue with shipping. For example one of the flowers was not available at the farm and they sent additional flowers to make sure we had everything that we wanted. Also, they overnighted us the Billy Balls immediately when they discovered that UPS had lost them somewhere in transit. They did this before I even noticed, it was great! As far as the flowers, everything arrived in great condition. I loved the ranunculus ... and bright colored roses, I would definitely recommend those! The silver dollar eucalyptus stole the show when we created a huge arbor for the ceremony. It was so easy to make but looked exquisite - a perfect backdrop for the beach ceremony. We had tons of flowers and were even looking for extra places to put the flowers; what a good problem to have! The bridal and bridesmaids bouquets came out wonderfully. In the end, the flowers looked amazing and everyone was very surprised that they weren't from a florist but that we did them ourselves! Show more

Flowers Used for Meredith McGee's Arrangements

Salmon Pink Roses ( 75 Roses )

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

Loved these salmon colored roses, they were such a great deal! Beautiful color.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridesmaid's Bouquets

Gorgeous ivory hydrangea. They look like more of a true white or off white in person. They looked great and really held up well in the bridesmaids bouquets. I was surprised with how many hydrangea 40 stems actually is, we had plenty!

Used for: Centerpieces

We initially received the regular red ranunculus flowers because the farm didn't have any that were 'tomato'. However, after talking with customer service, they overnighted us the next closest thing, apricot, and they were gorgeous. I was so impressed by the quality of customer service and the ranunculus that we did receive ended up being perfect!

The silver dollar eucalyptus was one of the stars of the wedding flowers. The arch that we decorated with eucalyptus was a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. The eucalyptus also looked awesome in the bouquets and centerpieces.

These roses were the perfect coral or strawberry color that we were looking for. They matched the bridesmaids' dresses even better than I had expected. Plus, they opened up really nicely!

El Aleli Peach Flower ( 6 bunches or 60 stems )

Used for: Centerpieces

This stock was a pretty contrast, but is very fragile. I was hoping that the stems would be fuller, but they were pretty long and skinny.

Used for: Centerpieces , Boutonnieres

These were the replacements for the regular red ranunculus flowers because the farm didn't have any that were 'tomato'. I was so impressed by the quality of customer service and the ranunculus that we did receive ended up being perfect! They were gorgeous.

Loved all of the ranunculus, they were amazing! The watermelon pink is more of a true candy pink, but looked great with all of our other colors. The great thing about ranunculus is that they tend to lighten as they open up. So some of them started darker and opened up to a medium pink, and some started medium pink and went to a light pink.

Craspedia Billy Balls Yellow Flower ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

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

Loved these for a fun pop of yellow. They are great accent to bright colored bouquets and corsages.

These roses were the only thing that I wasn't thrilled with for our order. They looked like they were slightly damaged in packaging or shipping and never fully opened. The color was also a bit lighter in person than in the photo online.
