Simple & Bold

Alex Otterbein (Bride) BRISTOL, RI
My husband and I met while I was visiting our hometown shortly after graduating from college. We had lived in the same town for a year and had mutual friends, but never crossed paths. Shortly after I met Chris, I packed my apartment up in Georgia and moved back home. It only took two dates for us to both realize this was it. Four years later we became engaged, neither of us really knew what kind of wedding we wanted. I was never the girl who dreamed of her wedding growing up, but I have always had a love for flowers. Early on I realized we could never afford the kind of arrangements that made my heart sing so we looked for alternatives. Searching the web for wholesale providers that had good ... reviews FiftyFlowers definitely stood out from the rest. Our flowers were everything I could have ever wanted and the experience of putting all of the centerpieces together with my mother, aunts, and friends is a memory I will always treasure. Show more

Flowers Used for Alex Otterbein's Arrangements

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

Loved! Adds a little whimsy to any arrangement.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

Absolutely gorgeous color and a very durable little rose. I ordered 6 bunches and it was a lot a flowers. We had 11 Centerpieces and my bouquet and there were several in each. It was a very pure fuchsia color.

When we received the smoke bush it was not at all what I expected. The stem was very thick almost branch like. I was nervous at first of how to incorporate into the centerpieces. I ended up getting very heavy duty cutters and cutting the top 8inches or so off and using just the tops of each branch. Added so much depth to the arrangement with the deep color. My centerpieces would have been missing something without it.

The ranunculus were absolutely amazing! There were some reviews about how delicate these flowers were that had me worried. When they arrived I had about 200 of them and only a few had gotten damaged. They were stunners. On the cocktail tables we put a bunch in a vase by themselves and they looked absolutely beatiful.

Burning Orange Garden Rose ( 36 Garden Roses )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

Oh my god are these beautiful. If you are even contemplating this flower just stop and put it in your cart. One of the most beautiful orange roses I was ever seen. After two days in water they opened beautifully. This was the exact pop of orange I was hoping for.

Choose Your Own Eucalyptus Greenery Premium Pack ( Large Pack or 20 Bunches may choose up to 4 varieties )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

I ordered the large pack and it was an enormous amount of greens. Even though we had a lot left over I was glad I got the large. It gave you a lot to pick and choose from. It is nature so nothing is perfect so some of the greens weren't as lively as you would want. I ordered the Parvafolia Fresh Eucalyptus Greenery, Gum Drop Fresh Cut Eucalyptus, Silver Dollar Eucalyptus Greens, and Gunnii Eucalyptus Greens. Each one was a totally different shape and had its own place within the arrangement. My mom and I have been making flower arrangements for years so we knew we needs a variety of shape and sizes of greens. The smaller leaves are great to put within the arrangement while the larger leaves are great at the bottom to give it structure. Plus the smell of the eucalyptus was out of this world.

Due to weather this summer these ended up getting substituted for the David Austin Light Pink Miranda Rose. The rose itself was beautiful, but we had problems with the petals staying on. Fifty flowers was very accommodating. They let us know this was a rare issue with damage to the flower structure. I was able to get enough roses so there was at least one at most of the center pieces. There will always be at least one issue right? If it hadn't been for the poor flower structure I would say these were one of my favorites look wise

Whimsical Garden Rose Sample Pack ( Whimsical Sample Pack )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

I ordered 2 whimsical packs one with all Garden Rose Red and the other with all Peony Rose Pink Yves Piaget. So glad we got these. The Peony Rose was amazing. In the picture it looks like the petals have a little bit of a frayed edge. In person I did not think this was true and I was glad! After two days in water the Peony Rose was huge! The Garden Rose Red was a very deep red with a frayed edge. After two days these did not get as large , but were still beautiful.
