Fall Greenpoint Loft Wedding

Megan Stickel (Bride) BROOKLYN, NY
Getting married in the Greenpoint Loft was a no-brainer. We live a few blocks away, it had the perfect aesthetic for our tastes, and allowed us to build the whole wedding from the ground up. It is a totally blank slate. I have a good amount of floral design experience, as does my sister, so I decided right away that I would do all of the flowers for my wedding. Using FiftyFlowers was such a blessing. Even though I live nearby the NYC flower district, carving out the time in the days before the wedding to go there would have been incredibly stressful and I am SO happy I decided to order instead! We got many of the flowers three days before the wedding and I used a bunch of buckets (from Home ... Depot) to prep them and get them hydrated. We had an issue with the very important silver dollar eucalyptus getting lost in the mail, so we didn't get that until the day before. Luckily, they arrived in great shape and really did not need to be prepped at all. We used one box to make the garland, wreaths, bouquets and boutonnieres, and then saved the other box for day-of decorating such as laying on the tables and placing in our mini bottle arrangements. I had the help of my sister, three friends, and some of the catering staff to get it all done during wedding day set-up and it turned out so great! It was so nice to have control of how everything turned out and it was also a HUGE money-saver to order from FiftyFlowers. We would have easily spent at least 4 to 5x as much using a florist.

Flowers Used for Megan Stickel's Arrangements

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

These are a great option for a peony look-alike. They opened up beautifully and added such interesting texture. These were also added to our garland and wreaths.

These arrived in perfect condition and opened up nicely. They were the perfect size for boutonnieres and for filler everywhere else. I liked having this smaller size bloom to balance out the other roses we used.

These were intended to be used as accent flowers, and they did the job quite well. They are quite delicate so there were some broken stems upon arrival, but nothing that set us back. Worth noting that the blooms often face at an angle from the stem and may need a gentle hand to wire them in order to face straight upward.

I used this for everything!! The entire floral look revolved around this silver dollar eucalyptus and it actually got lost in the mail the first time, but FiftyFlowers was on top of it and got a new batch out. It put us a day behind and we had to hustle the day before the wedding, but it looked great straight out of box. Most of this never even hit water. We especially loved using this to make hanging chandelier style wreaths (two 3' wreaths and one 4' wreath) and also for about 24 feet of garland) in addition to everything else! (customer ordered 40 bunches)

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Boutonnieres

Arrived in perfect condition - I wanted this as a nice accent to the silver dollar eucalyptus. It's heavy so we mainly used it on the tables, and a only few sprigs in other places.

Used for: Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Other

I love this amaranthus! It added such interesting texture to our bouquets, plus a little goes a LONG way, so even though it is expensive, it is worth ordering! We had lots to add to our garland and hanging wreaths, and even some for just sticking around in random places in the venue like the bar counter.

Italian Ruscus Greenery ( 10 bunches )

Used for: Centerpieces

Arrived in perfect condition, a little goes a long way. This looked great as filler in any place we needed it.

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

The color of these roses is just stunning, a sort of dusty rose/cream that looks great with a deep red and cream, which is exactly what we were looking for - my dress was a dusty pink so it coordinated really well! We used these in just about everything!
