Dreamy Protea Bouquets

Sarah Grimes (Bride) Chandler, AZ
My experience with FiftyFlowers was amazing. The flowers were delivered to our doorstep and the work began. I was nervous because I didn't think I had the skills to arrange flowers. However, I was wrong! When the flowers look as great as the ones that FiftyFlowers provided, it makes it easy. I spent the night before my wedding bonding with my bridesmaids as we arranged bouquets and centerpieces. We ended up buying some white roses from a local florist to add a little variety to the arrangements, but everything FiftyFlowers provided was great. All in all, we were able to make 5 bouquets, 10 centerpieces, 1 head table centerpiece, 1 cake topper, 10 boutonnieres, 6 corsages, 14 aisle decor pieces, ... and put the remaining flowers in a vase at the guestbook table. My goal for wedding flowers was to have a dreamy arrangement that looked like curated wildflowers. And I was 100% happy with what I got! Show more

Flowers Used for Sarah Grimes's Arrangements

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

The leaves were a lot smaller than expected and the branches were a lot floppier, so it limited where we could use them. However, there was a TON and we had a lot left over!

Thistle Blue Flower ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

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

I loved the thistle! There was so much of it and they were all in great shape when we got them. A+!

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

The dahlias were amazing. They matched our dresses perfectly and opened up into these amazing huge blooms! We had so many dahlias we didn't know what to do with them all! However, in the hot AZ sun (80 degrees that day) the flowers for the boutonnieres wilted pretty quickly. They were also easily smashed when we hugged (which happens a lot on your wedding day, trust me).

Farm Assorted Protea Variety Pack ( 20 Assorted Protea Stems )

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

I absolutely loved the protea! They were my favorite part! These flowers were hearty and HUGE and exotic. We used them as the feature flower in all of our centerpieces and bouquets (my bridal bouquet had 4!!!). The only reason I am not giving them a 5 star is because about half of the pincushion protea in the variety pack came squished (it looked almost as if someone sat on them) and they were unusable. Those pincushion protea are very delicate, so I expected it. It was okay though, because what I was really excited for were the pink ice protea! And they were GORGEOUS! And every single one in the package was usable. Keep in mind though, some of the stems on these flowers are thick -- like tree branch thick. I had to call my dad and have him bring his tree branch cutters to trim them down. They also made the handle part of the bouquet a lot thicker, but I wanted that anyways!

This was a good filler flower, but most of the stalks we received had some sort of browning on the top leaves, they looked like they were dying, so we were limited on which ones we could use.
