Burgundy Winter Rustic Glam

Jackie Smith (Bride) Chapel Hill, NC
Our wedding was in North Carolina in February and we got super lucky with clear skies and a high of 68! I was too nervous to DIY our personal flowers (bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages) so we got all of those from the English Garden Florist of Raleigh, NC. I knew I couldn't afford to get all of the flowers and the garland I wanted from a florist, so FiftyFlowers was the perfect solution. I loved all of their options even though it was so hard to pick which flowers to order (mostly because I'm indecisive)!!! With the help of my mom and one of my bridesmaids, I created 15 table arrangements, about 50 bud vases, one arrangement in milk glass for the barrel in our arbor, two mug arrangements for ... our bar, 6 arrangements for patio tables, and we added an assortment of flowers to the premade seeded eucalyptus garland we ordered. I was worried the garland flowers wouldn't make it all day Saturday even though we added them late Friday night, but I was easily able to reach customer service and they told me to spray it with water. The garland and cut flowers we added to it looked beautiful all day/night for the wedding! All of the flowers were exactly what I expected thanks to numerous conversations with Violet (thank you!) We used the anemones at our rehearsal dinner on Friday night in recycled brown beer bottles, and then reused them in some of our arrangements for the wedding. The burgundy carnations, seeded eucalyptus, light pink roses, and petite purpleberry roses were used in arrangements, bud vases, and the garland. The black bacarra roses were the prettiest roses I have ever seen and I loved how unique they were! I think the hardest part of our wedding was parting with all of the flowers the next day! We decided to donate a lot of them to nursing homes since we had an 8 hour drive back to OH where we live and were leaving for our honeymoon right after. We hope that the residents got just as much enjoyment from these gorgeous flowers as we did! Show more

Flowers Used for Jackie Smith's Arrangements

Purpleberry Petite Rose ( Small Pack )

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

These opened up beautifully and were a perfect pop of brighter color against the deeper burgundy flowers we used.

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

Make sure you have very strong floral shears as some of the big stems on eucalyptus can be very difficult to cut. The eucalyptus was perfect and we didn't even need to use all of it! 5 bunches was plenty for us to make our centerpieces, aisle arrangements, arrangements on our patio, and a few other arrangements.

Light Pink Roses ( 75 Roses )

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

These were beautiful and we were able to use the guard petals we pulled off for the flower girl as well as the Black Bacarra guard petals. This looked great on the grass for our outdoor ceremony!

Seeded Eucalyptus Garland ( 25 Foot Greens Garland )

Used for: Other

This was so worth the money to not have to make a garland ourselves. It looked absolutely perfect hanging on our arbor with flowers added throughout. Our coordinator moved it to the wall behind our sweetheart table for the reception so we got to use it the whole day!

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

I was so excited to see these in person as I had never seen them before our wedding! They are absolutely gorgeous and unlike any rose I've ever seen! The color was perfect for our February burgundy/blush/gold wedding. We used them in centerpieces, aisle arrangements, arrangements on our patio, and in our garland for our ceremony arbor/sweetheart table backdrop.

Burgundy Carnation Flowers ( 6 bunches, 150 stems )

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

These were beautiful when they opened up and were a deep color like I expected! A few of our stems were broken when they arrived due to damage to the box, but FiftyFlowers was super accommodating and gave us a partial refund for the damaged flowers.

Used for: Other, Centerpieces

These were perfect in brown beer bottles for our rehearsal dinner on their own and then we reused them for our wedding the next day in centerpieces, aisle arrangements, and a few bud vases.
