Gorgeous Green Wedding

Kelly Keller (Mom) Berlin, OH
I have helped with many weddings over the years but this was the most precious wedding of my life… the wedding of my only daughter! I was torn between wanting to be Mother of the Bride and Floral Designer at the same time. All things considered (budget, limited decorating time at the venue, needing to be “Mom” first, etc…), we decided to simplify my grand floral plans and decorate with plants rented from a greenhouse, wild vines I had shipped from across the country, and gorgeous blooms and greenery from FiftyFlowers!!!! To make my job easier, I made only one very large mixed arrangement- to greet guests when they arrived. All other flowers were put into vases of varying ... size and shape- one type of flower per vase. This truly allowed each flower variety to shine. These vases were tucked all over the venue and looked especially pretty when clustered into groups. The wedding date fell on a regionally celebrated holiday- Sweetest Day, so at the reception, the bride and groom chose a special song to be played for all the sweethearts while wrapped roses were passed out to delighted guests by the bride’s littlest cousins. The colorful bouquets of the bridal party were tied with shades of green or ivory satin and velvet ribbons. Also included in each bouquet and boutonniere was a piece of gray ribbon to represent brain cancer and tumor awareness- the bride is a survivor. To spread joy after the wedding, we were able to donate many vases of cheerful flowers to a nursing care facility. Delivering them was a heartwarming experience. As always, Fiftyflowers’ customer service was amazing. We ran into little issues with availability and such but they remained very helpful and professional every step of the way. Show more

Flowers Used for Kelly Keller's Arrangements

Used for: Other, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

It has been 18 days since I received the order and a few are still alive and pretty!!! A must have for every wedding!!!

Chocolate Cosmos Flower ( 10 bunches )

Used for: Bridal Bouquet

These were so unique and sweet and truly special little blooms. We could not stop sniffing them.

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Other

Every single bloom was perfect!!!

Used for: Other

This was the only disappointment. I selected this as a last minute substitution and was so excited to try it. When it arrived, I expected it to be hanging but it was also very wilted and the leaves just looked so sad. Instead of asking for a refund, I decided to give it time to hydrate but it never improved and we did not use any of it. That being said, I will try it again because I know it was just a bad box.

The grass medley was perfect to add a touch of fall. It was a nice assortment.

Used for: Bridesmaid's Bouquets

The wax flower was pretty nice. I will order again!!!

The eucalyptus was beautiful but some of it was past its prime, but I will order again!!

I was thrilled to receive this just in time. It was late arriving and some of it just never recovered. The stems that did recover, were beautiful!!

Podocarpus Greenery ( 5 bunches )

The leaves were smaller than the last time I ordered but it worked great and will remain on the top of my favorites list.

Nagi Greenery ( 10 bunches )

I was very pleased with the Nagi!!!

I am so glad I ordered this. I loved working with it. The height was great and the color amazing.

My personal favorite!!!!!!

Burgundy Gypsy Dianthus Flower ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

Used for: Other

I received the wrong color of these and customer service quickly helped me through this. I do want to mention that they were so healthy and even though the ones I received did not work for the wedding, I gave vases of them to a nursing care facility and they seemed thrilled.

Thistle Blue Flower ( 50 stems )

Used for: Bridal Bouquet

The thistle was perfect with nice, strong, healthy stems. The color was what I was hoping for.

Used for: Bridesmaid's Bouquets

The color of these was so pretty. They were very fresh and long lasting.

I received these as a suggested substitution for another flower and loved them so much and am so thankful customer service suggested them. I have worked with them before but these were stronger, fresher, and prettier than any I’ve seen from other sources.

Used for: Other

I have ordered these three times and they remain my favorite!!!

Used for: Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Bridal Bouquet

The color of these wowed everyone that saw them! They were healthy and gorgeous and lasted well.

These are so, so pretty. They are a hidden gem on the site!! They were strong and healthy yet were smaller than I had expected, but I was glad because they made such handsome boutonnieres!!! The color was amazing!!

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

These were so much fun to work with. They were a bit droopy when they arrived but looked amazing after being in water for a while. I can hardly wait to order these again!!

Bulk Fountain Grass ( 5 bunches )

The color was perfect and three weeks later, it still looks pretty!!

It was a pleasure to work with these unique and precious blooms.

This was pretty but not as tall as other snapdragons I have received from FiftyFlowers.
