Plethora Of Peonies And More

Jan Durland King (Mom) Waterville, ME
We ordered flowers from FiftyFlowers for the foundation of the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets and for the centerpieces. Peonies, roses, and ranunculus were the primary flowers and they did not disappoint. We floated a single peony in a bowl with a piece of freesia for centerpieces and it looked elegant and stunning. With the wedding being in the 3rd week in June, we were able to pick LOTS of fresh peonies from area gardens - tons of varieties - different shapes and colors and it was truly spectacular. The flowers we ordered were an lovely, reliable foundation. For the most part, the flowers we ordered from FiftyFlowers woke up and bloomed perfectly for the wedding - the exceptions: the ... veronica and the peruvian lilies, which didn't look good enough to use at the time of the wedding. Ironically, the veronica perked up and bloomed about 5 days after the wedding and lasted forever - almost a whole month. The roses, peonies, ranunculus, dahlias, and freesia were wonderful and made beautiful bouquets and arrangements. Show more

These looked beautiful and lasted nicely!

Grape Purple Peruvian Lilies ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

Dahlias are supposed to be finicky, but these worked well for us and looked great without special refrigeration.

Veronica White Flower ( 15 bunches )

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

These flowers limp and green and didn't perk up and bloom in time. We weren't able to use them for the wedding. We kept them back at the house and they looked better about 5 days later- and lasted for almost a month!

The peonies were lovely and held up very well. We used these as the foundation for the arrangements and supplemented the bidesmaids and bridal bouquets with fresh garden cut peonies of many varieties. I highly recommend peonies - they smelled great and made a beautiful statement!
