October Mystical Marriage

Lily Amberg (Bride) Havre De Grace, MD
We had booked a florist over a year in advance for our wedding. It turns out she was a scam artist and we were left high and dry less than 3 months before our date. At that point, many florists had already been booked or we would've had to pay 3+ times what we had initially budgeted, so I started doing some DIY research. I stumbled upon FiftyFlowers and immediately felt relieved. I worked with Violet (a member of the FiftyFlowers customer service team) and she is an absolute lifesaver. She answered all of my paranoid bride questions what if the flowers are delayed, I have to drive 2 hours to our venue and the flowers going to die, can I really actually do everything I want?!) I made a cart up ... with all of my favorite flowers and she gave me so many helpful tips and tricks and worked within my budget. I was able to get everything I wanted! We sourced all of our vases from local thrift shops which was a fun adventure in itself, we also used some other little vessels (cauldrons/antique vases) that we had at home. Our wedding was a little different than most. I wore a midnight blue celestial gown, had a bridesman, and my husband didn't want boutonnieres. Our goal for our wedding was to make sure we kept true to ourselves and that our personality showed through specifically in our decor. FiftyFlowers was a key part in us achieving that. I was able to create SO many beautiful arrangements and two stunning bouquets for myself and my sister the MOH. I called FiftyFlowers with any issues we had during processing after delivery and they exceeded my expectations in customer service. I was so nervous for no reason. Everything came out beautiful and we had so many flowers left over after making our centerpieces and bouquets that we were able to use petals for the ceremony aisle and tie some beautiful blooms and greens to the chairs lining the aisles. I am so beyond pleased with my experience with FiftyFlowers. Show more

These snapdragons are gorgeous. The stems came extremely long and they were fun to work with, however the stems very easily snapped right where the petals/blooms ended. I called FiftyFlowers to discuss this issue with them and they were extremely helpful. As the listing for these says, they follow the light and I sort of loved how funky some of the stems were. We kept them in a closet with a light overhead and they straightened out just great.

I called these the alien pods. They really are so unique and interesting looking. They helped add personality/individuality to our arrangements and were very easy to work with

these roses are so pretty. I found they bruise a little easily but they really added good depth to color without being a shocking white. They're very classic.

Perfect for greenery and filling in centerpieces. We had so much left over after putting together the bouquets and centerpieces, we tied some to chairs for the ceremony and receptions along with any extra flowers we had. These all smell AMAZING and are very easy to work with.

Thistle Blue Flower ( 50 stems )

These thistles are amazing. They came and were the prefect light blue that really helped go with the coloring on my dress. They are durable and come with many "blooms" per stem. One of my favorites that we ordered.

great quality flowers. they call it the delicate pac for a good reason but these stems aren't very difficult to work with as far as arrangements go. The stems are straw like so you have to be careful with them but they were stunning blooms to have. I loved that the scabiosa came with little plastic supports on the stems so they don't droop/break while you process them.

Seriously to die for. I am obsessed with hanging amaranths and so were all of our guests. This flower was a show stopper, everyone was asking about it. The bunches came very full ,and they do shed a little but not bad at all. Absolutely recommend getting this to spice up your centerpieces and bouquets

People would not stop asking us what these flowers were!!! I must've been asked by 40 different people. They're so cool and a total show stopper. Make sure you have very large flower/stem shears for these, the stems are very thick but other than that these are very easy to work with

Super hardy long-lasting flowers and the color practically never faded!

Black Magic Rose ( 50 Roses )

OMG obsessed. These roses bloomed perfectly! Show stoppers with a perfect velvety texture and deep red coloring.

These carnations are great! They are great filler flowers for a very affordable price, they also last a very long time and were easy to work with
