Summer Arboretum Wedding

Jessica Frankenfield (Bride) Philadelphia, PA
I wanted really lush, abundant flowers at my wedding and knew I was going to have to arrange them myself to stay in budget. We built the look around the David Austin peach roses with lots of greenery. Some blue thistles added texture and tied the flowers in with the bridal party's blue suits and slate blue dresses. We made centerpieces for 12 tables, each table had 3-4 small to medium antique silver and white ceramic containers mixed with vintage books. The order and delivery process went well, even with a couple shipments being held up in inspections and Hurricane Irma delivery delays. We worked on the flowers all day Friday the day before the wedding. My mom and I worked all day and had ... help from about 4 more family and friends for a few hours. We put ribbons on bouquets and corsages the morning of the wedding. Make sure you have lots of clean buckets before your delivery arrives! We had 25 5-gallon buckets for this order and that was just enough. We used some of the flower preservative packets that came with the flowers, but did not order any extra. They seemed to last very nicely. We saved the flower boxes to transport the arrangements and they worked well. Show more

Flowers Used for Jessica Frankenfield's Arrangements

Plumosa Fern Greenery ( 10 bunches )

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

Gorgeous ethereal volume on this. Watch out for thorns and it sheds a lot. Do not assemble on surfaces you can't get dirty.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

Beautiful! It is fairly heavy, so use for larger arrangements or something where you can let it drag.

Thistle Blue Flower ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

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

Great, one of my favorite accent flowers. Having multiple flowers per stalk gives it a great structure in arrangements, or you can clip an individual flower for boutonnieres.

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

These were beautiful accent flowers- very ruffly. These were the only ones out of the batch that were not 100% pristine though, a number of the flowers were a little yellow/brown at the base of the bud, but it was not too noticeable when they opened up. They were a little more pink than I had hoped, but within the range you would expect from the picture.

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

I built my entire look around these- beautiful peach color and just as ruffly and romantic as I'd hoped.

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

Great filler. The lacy pieces are quite short, so do not count on them for bouquets, but they were great for shorter arrangements. Loved the mix of textures.

El Aleli Peach Flower ( 10 bunches or 100 stems )

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

Beautiful and great smell. Nice way to add some height to your arrangements while still keeping the look fluid and romantic. These only arrived the day before the wedding due to Hurricane Irma, but they perked up quickly.

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

Beautiful peach/pink color, nice accent flower

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

Loved these. Nice cream color, not a bright white. It was nice to include a full spray in bouquets and to snip individual flowers for boutonnieres and corsages.

Leather Leaf Greenery ( 15 bunches )

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

Great sturdy filler fern. Had lots left over.

Veronica White Flower ( 10 Bunches )

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

Beautiful accent flower, looks great in all cases.

Used for: Other

We did not follow the instructions and cut this into 3 pieces. I couldn't justify the price difference on buying 3 separate garlands. This looked great for 2 mantelpiece displays and to drape on our welcome sign.
