Colorado Vintage Backyard Garden Party Wedding

Katelynne Egley (Bride) BROOMFIELD, CO
We picked our venue and date and then I knew I had a very specific floral vision. I played with making my own arrangements for fun to see if it was something I'd want to take on DIYing for the wedding and I'm sure glad I did. With months and months of practice, turning into a hobby, turning into a business, I got really into it. I launched my floral design business The Pastoral Posy about a month after doing my own florals for my own Colorado wedding. FiftyFlowers was great to work with, and I feel overall very satisfied. In total, I made my bouquet, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, 10 boutonnieres, a dozen or so aisle runner jars, a pair of altar arrangements, 9 centerpieces, a welcome arrangement, ... a smaller cake table arrangement and a few other smaller bud vases. The vision was "Vintage Backyard Garden Party," which I feel was true to my own style and suited the venue so naturally... it really was a dream come true! Show more

Flowers Used for Katelynne Egley's Arrangements

Used for: Other

Only 4 stars as these were not nearly as blue as the photos, but still gorgeous. I ended up supplementing some arrangements by purchasing more light blue hydrangeas from a local shop to add more blue in overall.

Vintage Wedding Flower Combo Pack ( Vintage Wedding Flower Box )

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

My favorite flowers from my wedding! The stock arrived in rough condition but it was so, so fragrant and did perk up enough for me to still throw it in and used it all. The lace-like Orlaya was such a unique addition and I loved it maybe the best. The Chocolate lace was beautiful and added a nice almost whimsical touch - so light and airy and bouncy! In hindsight, I would have loved more of this combo overall!

Sahara Cream Rose ( 50 Roses )

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

Really very pretty but a bit more pink than creamy sandy color. Still loved and gave a really pretty vintage vibe I was into.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Other

Good quantity and nice mix.

Cascading Ivy Greenery ( 10 bunches )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Other

This ivy was rather difficult to process because it was hard to tell what's the top and what's the bottom as it looked like it was just chopped from the middle. It was also really not a lush and full as I was expecting. I had so much I threw out an entire bucket because it was taking too long to sort through what was a good piece and what was a bad. That being said, it still added just the right accent that I'm really so, so glad I still used it.

Bupleurum Flowering Greenery ( 7 bunches or 70 stems )

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

Loved the color and really got lush once it hydrated. I'll use this again for sure. 70 stems was also plentyyy I had some leftover.

Thistle Blue Flower ( 100 stems )

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

Used this everywhere and still had TONS left over. 100 stemsof this spray is a lot. Very woody and dry overall - more of a true pokey dry thistle than I've seen in other arrangements before.

White Bulk Tulips ( 100 tulips )

Used for: Centerpieces

These were beautiful and some opened up so much on our hot wedding day.

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

Wonderful. Very bridal. I'm obsessed. A must have filler.
