I Promise, You Can Do Your Own Flowers!

Justine Junker () COLUMBUS, OH
After getting price estimates from local florists, I initially accepted that we couldn't afford to have the flowers I had dreamed of for my wedding. Then my mother suggested we do them ourselves... I initially thought it was a crazy idea, but I came around to it! We supplemented the flowers we got from FiftyFlowers with roses and carnations sourced locally. However, FiftyFlowers was so reliable; I can't recommend them enough! For our centerpieces, we used thrifted milk glass and silver vases. We also had arrangements attached to our wedding arch (floral foam + zip ties = awesome). With no experience, I was pretty intimidated, but everything came together quicker and easier than I anticipated. ... I did 85% of the work myself with assistance from a few family members and it took probably 2-3 hours to prep the flowers when they arrived (trimming and watering) and maybe 5-6 hours putting everything together. Overall, I'm happy with how they turned out, and guests were stunned by how little we paid for such gorgeous flowers. Would 100% do again! Show more

Half were a lovely blush color and looked great. The other half were a purple hue, and arrived looking quite dry. The purple ones didn't really perk up and shed a lot. Fortunately there was enough with just using the blush flowers.

Hardy, beautiful, and smelled great.

What a beautiful flower! I loved the blue hue and funky shape--they gave our arrangements so much personality! Came with more than I expected.

Gorgeous color! They were more burgundy than pictured (at least on my computer), but that's what I wanted. Stunning pops of color for a filler flower.

Football Mum Lavender Pink Flower ( 6 bunches or 60 stems )

These were giant and stunning. Great focal flower.
