Colorful DIY Wedding

Simin Zhang (Bride) Spring Lake, NJ
I knew I wanted to tackle a big DIY project for the wedding, but I just didn't know what until I came across the APW (A Practical Wedding) post about DIY wedding flowers. Meg Keene made the whole process seem so doable, so I just said sure, why not? Funny enough, I didn't know anything about flowers until I started this process. Then, hours of research later, I had a vision of what I wanted and I knew from reviews that I should use FiftyFlowers. Chatting with Violet was essential to the whole process, she made tons of great suggestions and gave me spreadsheets that made the whole process feel manageable. Flower arranging was super fun though somewhat stressful, since you have to do it so close ... to the wedding. However, I would do it again in a heartbeat! It was so nice hanging out more personally with the family members and friends who came to help, and the end result was SO satisfying! The flowers and the wedding turned out beautifully, and I'm so glad I went with FiftyFlowers! Show more

Gorgeous spray roses, looked a lot more pinky orange than in the picture.

So much fun!

These were a great filler and more delicate than bulk hydrangeas.

Stock Rose Pink Flower ( 6 bunches or 60 stems )

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

Great filler.

Garden Rose Princess Pink ( 144 garden roses )

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

I was extremely disappointed with these flowers. I got 144 expecting them to be a focal flower, but when I got them they were squished, and remained squished after 2 days of TLC. They even looked squished in the centerpieces and nothing I did could change that. They were also TINY- an inch at the most, and maybe 30% opened up all the way. I would NOT buy them again.

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

These were so fragrant and beautiful on the day of the wedding, they just took a few days to open up.

So much filler!

Green Dianthus Flowers ( 5 Bunches, 50 stems )

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

Fluffy and great.

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

After 4 days, these still didn't quite open up, and acted as greenery instead of flowers, which was kind of disappointing.

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

Delicate, but very beautiful.
