FiftyFlowers Saved The Day With Gorgeous Anemones

Alexandria Cornell (Bride) DALLAS, TX
We ordered our most expensive flowers from FiftyFlowers because we just couldn't afford to pay florist markups on garden roses and anemones. We had the flowers shipped to a florist, who assembled them and added in greenery and filler. FiftyFlower's biggest win was the depth of their flower farm relationships - they were the only ones out there who were able to find anemones and ship them within 24 hours. Moreover, they turned out to be some of the most beautiful anemones I've ever seen. They stole the show as I had florist after florist tell me anemones were "horrible this season" and impossible to find. The anemones by themselves have convinced me that every bride should order their most expensive ... flowers from FiftyFlowers! But on top of the anemones, we got incredible, huge garden roses that turned out so much bigger and more magical than the local shops. We purchased the mixed whimsical garden rose pack - the soft pink O'Hara roses were so romantic and amazing. They smelled like perfection and made me feel like royalty. Don't hesitate: save yourself time, money and worry by just ordering through FiftyFlowers. We were able to have the look we wanted for a fraction of retail florist prices. Extra props to the customer service team, who texted back and forth with me to make sure the roses were perfect and pulled off a miracle by finding incredible anemones. Thank you. Show more

Flowers Used for Alexandria Cornell's Arrangements

Whimsical Garden Rose Sample Pack ( Whimsical Sample Pack )

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

The O'Hara soft pink were the star of the show. They smelled amazing, had the perfect light pink/blush color and were so feminine. These shipped the most open of all the flowers we got, so I would follow FiftyFlowers' advice on delivery. They died first but looked good through Sunday, so it didn't matter. The ivory peony roses came tiny but bloomed out fairly large and a bit whimsical, but were a little underwhelming and didn't quite give the fullness I was hoping for. Spicy pink roses came as just small standard roses but were a really great color compliment to the soft pink and berry lace. Overall, I'd use the pack

Stole the show!

Garden Rose Raspberry Red ( 36 Garden Roses )

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

These roses came in a little darker than pictured - more of a tinted red than a true raspberry - but they bloomed so beautifully and fully that it didn't matter. The ruffly centers and incredible longevity made them the perfect backbone of the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets. We put extras in bud vases on the tables and they were a hit. They lighten in color as they bloom. 36 was more than enough for a bridal bouquet and a few in 5 bridesmaids bouquets. A handful of buds went in bud vases for reception decor. We got these on a Wednesday and I thought they looked best Saturday-Sunday, but kept going into the next week.
