Romantic Boho Love Story

Caitlin Conway (Bride) Wilmington, NC
Making these flower arrangements was one of the absolute highlights of our wedding. When I told people we were going to do it all ourselves every single person said, "uhh... what? Have you thought that through? Do you know how busy you'll be that week?" and the answer really came down to this - I wanted flowers this gorgeous and a florist just wasn't in the budget. It turned out that making the bouquets with two of my bridesmaids, my mom, and aunt was one of my favorite experiences and most beautiful parts of our entire wedding! My husband and one of our groomsmen made the boutonnieres together over a couple of beers and also had a blast. None of us had any prior florist experience, I just threw ... a few Pinterest photos in a word doc and we went for it! The flowers each arrived separately (Protea, eucalyptus, and roses on Tuesday and Assorted White flowers on Wednesday) and I received a confirmation e-mail and text for each shipment. We followed the directions and put them in water and they were all perfectly in bloom for the Friday event. My wedding was actually 4 hours away from where we got the flowers delivered, and in May in NC I was worried about the heat, but everything turned out great. I had not originally planned on having centerpieces/flower arrangements on the bar, guestbook table, in front of the venue, or on the long dinner tables, but we had so many flowers left over that we made quite a few. I also used the bridesmaids' bouquets as centerpieces. I cannot recommend FiftyFlowers enough :) (Note that the flower chandelier has faux flowers from Michaels and the garland is from Costco.)

Flowers Used for Caitlin Conway's Arrangements

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

These flowers were perfect!! I wanted something that was affordable and would add a lot of texture and depth to the bouquet without competing with the protea, this was absolutely perfect and there were SO MANY flowers! We used these for my bouquet, 5 bridesmaids, 9 boutonnieres, and still had some left over for about 10 centerpieces! If you get lilies in your bouquet, make sure you remove the stems so they do not get orange pollen (which stains!) everywhere!

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

These smelled incredible and there was SO MUCH greenery. Our venue was outside and had a ton of gorgeous greenery so this was the perfect match.

Peach Fresh Roses ( 25 Roses (Allow 4 Business days for delivery) )

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

These were a beautiful color and so healthy. I wanted the something to tie in the white flowers and pink protea and was worried these roses would be too white or to bright - they ended up being the perfect middle ground! These were delivered Tuesday for my Friday wedding and opened beautifully for the event!

Farm Assorted Protea Variety Pack ( 20 Assorted Protea Stems )

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

This was the most expensive floral item I purchased and was worth every single penny. This is what took our flowers from an everyday bouquet to an out-of-this-world gorgeous and unique boho masterpiece. They were huge, so just having 20 stems was enough for my bouquet (I had three), the bridesmaids (they each had one to two), and a focal point for the table centerpieces. These babies were heavy with thick stems too so you don't want too many in your bouquet!
