Pop Of Coral Wedding

Abigail Nusbaum (Bride) Wichita, KS
I'm a bride who adores fresh flowers but was determined to stick close to a small budget. Doing my own flowers wasn't an intimidating concept for me, but I knew that I needed high quality product to make the work worth the time. And Fifty Flowers was perfect! I spent a lot of time researching different varieties, browsing prices, and trying to figure out amounts. With five attendants and a guest list of 180, I knew we wouldn't be able to skimp on flowers, but I was still able to spend considerably less than I had budgeted. I had the help of my bridesmaids and a couple of family friends in putting everything together, and it only took us 3-4 hours the day before the wedding! We made my bridal ... bouquet, 5 bridesmaid's bouquets, 4 small bouquets for mothers and grandmothers, 9 boutonnieres for all the guys, plus used all the remaining flowers as centerpieces loosely arranged across 18 tables. Each reception table had 2-3 smaller vases, and we had plenty of flowers! We ended up with flowers on the food and dessert tables, as well as plenty of flowers to use for petals for our going away! In addition to the flowers listed here, we also got White Hydrangeas elsewhere. Everything worked so well that I'm doing my sister's Winter Wonderland wedding in December, and will be ordering from Fifty Flowers! I've also had many friends ask for my advice and help. If you're considering DIYing your wedding flowers, Fifty Flowers is exactly what you need! Show more

Flowers Used for Abigail Nusbaum's Arrangements

Peaches and Cream Hypericum Berries ( 8 to 10 bunches or 80 to 100 stems )

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

Loved what these pops of color did for our bouquets and centerpieces! They add a fullness that you need with greenery, but kept with our color theme. I wanted a lot of coral, and these definitely did the job!

El Aleli Peach Flower ( 6 bunches or 60 stems )

Used for: Centerpieces , Corsages

Stunning and easy to work with! We used these in centerpieces, as well as MOB and MOG mini bouquets. Loved the fullness of the blossoms as well as the color. They're a lovely pale pink-peach which contrasted nicely with some of our brighter choices.

Garden Rose Rene Goscinny ( 72 Cabbage Roses )

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

Really stunning roses, though they didn't open as much as I would have thought. They are also a far bit darker than the photos show--definitely a deep coral as opposed to a peach. I was glad I'd also ordered a peach standard rose to help balance the brightness.

Peach Fresh Roses ( 100 Roses )

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

Loved these! They were a last minute decision, but I'm so glad I went for it.
