Jewel Toned Brooklyn New Year's Eve Wedding

Stephanie Lizza (Bride) BROOKLYN, NY
My wife and I met in NYC at work over 5 years ago. When we got engaged, we decided to get married on NYE in Brooklyn, very close to our home. I had a very specific vision for what I wanted our flowers to look like. They turned out even better than we could have imagined. We had a lot of help leading up to the wedding processing and putting together the arrangements. The bridal bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres were done by my wife's Aunt who is an actual florist, so that was a huge HUGE help. I loved the way they turned out and FiftyFlowers was super helpful along the way. A huge thank you to Violet who was able to find replacements for flowers that I wanted to include but weren't seasonally ... available. Violet really understood my vision and helped build my bouquets and centerpieces with flowers that were cohesive. They were beautiful and I loved them!! Thank you FiftyFlowers and Violet!! Show more

Beautiful, full, and vibrant flower. Very hearty. The pop of some white was great with the overall moody color scheme.

Italian Ruscus Greenery ( 20 bunches )

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

Another great filler greenery.

Great filler greenery.

Thistle Blue Flower ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

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

This was my favorite filler. Great texture and color given that we needed something to break up all the moody maroon, red, deep burgundy, and deep wine colored flowers. It really pulled the whole flower look together.

Crimson Rust Gerrondo Gerbera Daisies ( 80 Gerrondo Gerberas )

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

Beautiful flowers - more orange than rust so only used for Centerpieces.

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

Ranunculus are so incredibly interesting and beautiful. The purple ones had opened nicely by the wedding. They were a perfect addition, but fickle. Not for the faint of heart.

Ranunculus are beautiful and interesting, but finicky. Not all of the red ranunculus had opened fully by the wedding, but they were beautiful additions.

The hanging amaranthus was amazing and dramatic. It really enhanced the bouquets and some of the other table arrangements.

Walk of Fame Garden Rose ( 36 Garden Roses )

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

We got these as a backup to Peonies. While not as beautiful as peonies (in my opinion) they were incredibly beautiful and fit in to the aesthetic.

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

These were pretty, but small. Given that we had the carnations, we didn't really need the scabiosa.

LOVE THIS DAHLIA. Beautiful, vibrant, big, focal flower.

Used for: Other

Used this garland and another for an entry table and behind our altar. Following the ceremony, the altar garland was moved to the head table as a centerpiece. We also used another garland (10 ft) on the buffet table.

Carnations are great fillers and very hearty. I was never worried about them lasting and this burgundy was a great color for our overall look.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridesmaid's Bouquets

Didn't end up using red Astilbe as it was not available. Instead we substituted Burgundy Snap Dragons which WERE INCREDIBLE!!!

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

LOVED THESE! Dahlias are incredible and big and a great focal flower. My only comment is that they weren't as dark as I had imagined.
