Mauve Dreams

Emily Petkovsek (Bride) Cooperstown, NY
Once I got engaged, I knew right away that I wanted to order my flowers online and do everything myself. Everyone thought I was crazy for doing all of my own flowers. Their discouragement obviously made me a little nervous about doing everything myself, but FiftyFlowers made it so easy. Ordering was a breeze and my flowers were delivered on the dates expected. I was worried how they would be once they were unpacked, but I was pleasantly surprised how good they looked. I followed instructions for each type of flower I received. Once they were all perked up and guard petals taken off, they looked great. I was really impressed with the quality and how great they all looked. It was a lot of work ... to remove the petals and leaves from all of the roses, but it was well worth it! I went with the silver dollar and seeded Eucalyptus, which were both beautiful. I could not believe how much Eucalyptus I received. The white spray roses didn't hold up as long as I thought they would, but they still worked great for the centerpieces and on our welcome sign. I also decided to order last minute, some dusty miller from FiftyFlowers and incorporated Queen Anne's Lace in all bouquets and centerpieces and small hydrangeas in the centerpieces only. I was surprised how easy it really was to put all of the flowers together once I got started. I did all of the bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres myself and had someone else help with the centerpieces once I did the first one. I loved how all of my flowers came out. They really came out better than I could have imagined. I am so happy I ordered from FiftyFlowers and would not change anything. Show more
