Southern Boho DIY Wedding

Brittney Brubaker (Bride) JACKSONVILLE, FL
My wedding was everything I could have ever imagined! It was at the historic Ribault Club in Jacksonville, FL on November 3rd, 2017. It was a small but elegant wedding surrounded by our closest family and friends. We DIY-ed just about everything we could think of for the wedding - we built the altar, the bar, the centerpieces. I made all the signs, the wedding favors, and my bridesmaids' dresses. My favorite thing that we did ourselves though was the flowers!!! It was a lot of work and our house was stuffed full of flowers but it so wonderful to be able to do it and have my family and friends all together to help. Thanks, FiftyFlowers for making my wedding dreams come true!

Flowers Used for Brittney Brubaker's Arrangements

Loved the smoke bush! It was not originally part of my flower plan but the FiftyFlowers expert recommended it and I'm so glad she did! The color is spectacular and really added a whole different dimension to the greenery. The only thing I didn't love is that they are just one very long thick stem (no offshoots like eucalyptus) so they were a little awkward to work with, but we had plenty so it wasn't a big deal.

New Love Baby's Breath Flower ( 5 bunches, order 4 days in advance )

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

Nice, classic baby's breath. We used only baby's breath for the aisle decor and it was perfect. Great filler too.

Thistle Blue Flower ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

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

Loved the thistle! Perfect way to tie our wedding colors (navy and burgundy) into our wedding flowers. Great texture too. My only wish is that these came in a smaller quantity because we used them EVERYWHERE and still ended up throwing more than half of them out.

These carnations are so freaking cool. Exactly as pictured. They are a really neat combo of bright pink and dusty lavender and they have almost a smoky appearance. I'm not normally a huge carnation fan but these were fantastic. Plus they are super hardy and last forever!

Creamy Ivory Peony Rose ( 48 Garden Roses )

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

OMG THEY SMELLED AMAZING! I love a good true scented rose and these were perfect. They were gorgeous and opened beautifully too! We didn't lose a single one, which I was really impressed by because I know garden roses can be really delicate. I really loved that about half of them had just a hint of blush at the tips too, so beautiful

The Gunni eucalyptus was my absolute favorite. Perfectly whimsical and great texture. Loved the silver dollar too. The seeded eucalyptus was my least favorite (nothing wrong with it, just not as much to my taste as the others. I love the smell of eucalyptus too, my house smelled amazing for weeks!

I knew right away I had to these and I was not disappointed! The color is deep and rich and they were the perfect touch of whimsy/boho. The stems are super delicate but they came with tubes around them so they were no trouble to work with.

Hands down, my favorite flower. These were absolutely STUNNING, everything I ever could have dreamed of. The protea I had my eye on initially wasn't in season for our event, but I'm so much happier we went with this one. They are to die for! I was a little worried about only getting 20 stems but we had plenty! They are gigantic and they make such a statement, you really only need a few. One thing to be aware of is that the stems are enormous (full on tree branch) so floral cutters are not going to cut it, you definitely will need branch cutters for these.
