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

Blue Thistle Wedding Flowers Close up

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.

David Austin Peach Garden Roses up close
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.

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.

Super Bubbles Spray Rose
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.

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.

Fresh cut greens plumosa fern filler flower sold near me

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.

Single Stem of Leather Leaf Greenery Fern Flowers Sold Near Me

Leather Leaf Greenery ( 15 bunches )

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

Great sturdy filler fern. Had lots left over.

Wedding greenery dusty miller leaf filler flowers sold near me
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.

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

Beautiful peach/pink color, nice accent flower

Seeded Eucalyptus flowers for Weddings
Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

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