Laid Back Summer Wedding

Jackie Montembeault (Bride) CONCORD, NH
I was happy to work with FiftyFlowers. I saved so much money! I didn't mind the extra work because working with a florist was not possible for our budget. We had a small wedding and only used flowers for 4 bouquets and 12 centerpieces, so it was definitely a manageable task. I recruited my bridesmaids the day before to arrange everything, and they lasted well until the wedding the next day. None of us had any flower arranging experience, but we got many compliments on the look. My only disappointment was in the quality of one of the flowers I ordered. But the other two kinds looked lovely and there were enough of them that we didn't miss the other flowers! I would definitely work with FiftyFlowers ... again, and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to save money by putting in some extra work to arrange your own flowers! Show more

Flowers Used for Jackie Montembeault's Arrangements

Green Kiss Alba Rose ( 50 Roses )

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

These delicate roses were very interesting and beautiful. They did very well throughout the hot summer wedding. We used them as accents in our bouquets and centerpieces and they looked lovely.

Used for: Centerpieces

I am still trying to figure out what flowers I was sent, because these were definitely not Queen Anne's Lace (daucus carota or ammi majus). The stems were very thick, bamboo- like stalks that made them very difficult to use in any arrangement. They were shipped with mesh netting over the heads that, when removed, sent the little white flower buds flying! We removed some right away, some after hydration, and some the day of- no difference. The flowers were almost all green with a tiny amount of white on the very top, not the lacy white that I am used to seeing. I was extremely disappointed in this flower since I was most excited to have my favorite QAL in my wedding.

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

These flowers were a great filler for our centerpieces and bouquets, They were delicate and lovely. To prepare them, we removed the leaves and the little side flowers. We later used those offshoot flowers as decorative accents or to fill space in arrangements and it looked great!
