Don't Be Afraid To DIY!

Laura J (Bride) Chicago, IL
I'm so happy how my DIY wedding flowers turned out with FiftyFlowers help! Even as the bride, I didn't find it stressful. Just make sure you're organized, have a team to help (in my case this was 4 friends), and have your supplies ready. You really can't go wrong with beautiful flowers, they're going to look great by default! Get some inspiration online and go for it. It ended up being a fun part of preparations, only area I could've thought out more was getting all the centerpieces to the venue. We did many, many casual arrangements in vintage glasses and bottles, so yeah, that wasn't the most fun to transport from my house. FiftyFlowers' service is great - they will confirm your order after ... it's made and before delivery. Flowers arrived well packed, in great condition and right on time. One color substitution was made on the stock, but it still very much complimented my scheme. It was important to me to have gorgeous flowers for our August wedding AND not break the bank - FiftyFlowers made that easy! Show more

Flowers Used for Laura J's Arrangements

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

Very pretty. Petals needed some clean up, but they were as I ordered and fit the bill.

Stock Spray Cream Purple ( 10 bunches or 50 stems )

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

Flower quality was 5 star, but color I received was ivory-ish. To be fair, ended up probably looking better than my selection as a compliment to the roses I picked.

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Centerpieces

Super delicate, but worth the effort. Added a vintage look that's hard to achieve with any other flower. Make sure you leave enough time for them to 'open up' when ordering.

Great filler, received A TON. Ended up adding to everything and everywhere.
