Romantic Rustic Indian Fusion Wedding

Deborah Moyer (Mom) Belleville, PA
The theme of our July family wedding was rustic chic combined with Indian fusion. The bride, Preenaa, wanted to include elements of a traditional Indian wedding and mix that with a ceremony at a picturesque Pennsylvania winery with the reception in the enormous barn that is on the grounds. The result was a very personalized event that was unique and beautiful. When I found out that my son was planning to get married, I immediately wanted to help with the decor and flowers since I love DIY projects. I was very nervous about being responsible for all the flowers for such a huge event and about ordering fresh flowers online. Everything went incredibly smoothly though. The flowers were all beautiful ... and everything really came together to go with the bride's vision for the day. I had a great time planning the colors and making flower selections. The bride shared a lot of photo ideas to tell me what she was looking for, and we worked together to find the kinds of flowers she would like. Preenaa loves the color pink and the look of romantic roses. Our garden-style arrangements featured huge Mayra roses and other mixed roses and florals that were harmonious with the soft rose-gold worn by the bridesmaids. I had some strategies like a flower spreadsheet and directions for how many flowers went in each project so the rest of the family and wedding party could help put everything together. We bought some de-thorning tools and I made sure to have other people who planned to be at the house on the day the flowers arrived. I would not recommend undertaking a large task like this without help from others. Planning is really critical to the success of a large project like this. We actually had a great time working with the flowers. Preenaa's family helped with many aspects, and my sister and mom helped tremendously as well. The flowers were honestly beautiful and in great shape when they arrived. I just followed the directions from FiftyFlowers and we had no problems at all. One of the most beautiful projects we were able to do were the traditional Indian garlands. The bride's mom and aunt used some of the Mayra roses and some of the antique lavender roses to make stunning garlands that were exchanged by the bride and groom during the ceremony. All of the flowers in the photos were arranged by us and I couldn't be happier with the results. We even made corsages with pearl bracelets. These were a little tricky, so I would recommend practicing ahead of time for everything you plan to do. Overall, I am thrilled that we ordered flowers from FiftyFlowers and we did them ourselves. We were able to make the flowers exactly how we wanted them and the price was very reasonable. Even though I had no real experience with fresh flowers, we were able to come out with beautiful results. Show more

The stock looked very delicate and smelled wonderful. It was great for taller arrangements and for bouquets. The stock gave a nice romantic feel to our arrangements.

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

Lot's of baby's breath and we used a little in everything. We made wonderful floral crowns for the flower girls out of baby's breath with a white lisianthus on one side

Used for: Centerpieces , Boutonnieres, Other

I ordered this pack in all white and used it for a variety of projects. The lisianthus was used for boutonnieres, flower girl crowns and bouquets, and in arrangements. We used the others for large ceremony arrangements. It was nice to have this variety of blooms for wherever we needed a few extra.

Mayra Pink Ruffles Garden Rose ( 100 Garden Roses )

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

So many petals and huge! These really look like bright pink peonies! Definitely one of our favorites! They were a brighter color pink than I was expecting from the photo, but they still were gorgeous with the other flowers. Also used for the wedding garland!

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

Very beautiful muted lavender color roses. They were classically shaped roses and very large when opened. The bride's mother also used these flowers to make a variation of an Indian wedding garland!

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

These were just stunning! The color is out of this world! Very light cream-mauve-pink. These were one of my favorite flowers. They were also huge when they opened up and were very full. Highly recommend.

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

Beautiful in the bouquets. We also combined it with baby's breath for decorations at the ceremony on the tulle backdrop.

Make Your Own Flower Centerpieces Combo Box ( Make Your Own Flower Centerpieces Combo Box )

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

This was a great combo pack. The small pink roses were really a necessity to combine with the larger roses and balance things out. We wanted a very small touch of yellow with the pink and lavender shades, so the berries and small daisy type flowers worked well.
