Bright Flowers For A Connecticut Beach Wedding

Elizabeth (Bride) New Haven, CT
I found FiftyFlowers after reading a few wedding blog posts from brides who had successfully done their own flowers. Luckily, I have a family that's very crafty and willing to lend a hand! Along with my mother, aunt, sister, mother in law and stepmom in law, we made 15 centerpieces, 2 bouquets, 5 small bouquets, 5 boutonnieres, 10 small ceremony arrangements, and 4 big arrangements for the reception (special thanks to my Aunt for tackling those!). I did my own bouquet, and a bouquet for my maid of honor. My family did all the ceremony and centerpiece arrangements, and my mom did the boutonnieres as well. It took several hours of prepping and arranging, but was well worth it. I'd estimate we ... saved close to 75% of what it would have cost to purchase a comparable amount of arrangements from a florist. Fifty Flowers delivered the big impact I was looking for in our wedding flowers at a fraction of what we could have paid. If you have the time and some friends and family to help out, I definitely recommend it! Show more

Flowers Used for Elizabeth's Arrangements

These were a little more yellow-to-hot pink than I anticipated, but they worked even better with the other flowers. We used these in everything, and they were in great shape and looked beautiful.

The white dahlias were gorgeous and we used them in nearly every arrangement. They lasted well after the wedding.

Stock Pinky Peach Flower ( 6 bunches or 60 stems )

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

The stock were beautiful and exactly as described. They are delicate so we did not use them in the bouquets, but they added height to table arrangements.

These roses were lovely and very full. One bunch out arrived a bit bruised but the rest were perfect. They looked great on the wedding day, but didn't have a very long life span after that. Fifty Flowers' recommended delivery date was accurate.

The evening sun dahlias we ordered were huge and gorgeous. They looked great in bouquets and in the large arrangements.

These were nearly as large as the garden roses we ordered - huge, beautiful and bright! They opened nicely and were a good deal for the quantity.
