Summer Camp Romance

Jamie Ingram (Bride) RINDGE, NH
My husband and I met while working at the same summer camp in 2010. This past fall we got married at the camp and had a wonderfully rustic wedding weekend! Our guests stayed in cabins and before the ceremony enjoyed camp activities like canoeing and kayaking. We used the old chapel on the property as the site for our ceremony and the reception was held in the dining hall! The overall feel of the weekend was relaxed and easygoing. Our flowers followed the "no-fuss" feel with loose construction and an abundance of greenery. We ended up ordering WAY too many flowers as I was worried there would not be enough; so we ended up having twice the amount of flower decor than I had thought we would. ... It helped transform our camp into a wonderfully romantic atmosphere! I am really glad we decided to DIY rather than use a florist. We saved several thousand dollars by doing it ourselves and made everything feel much more personalized! In fact, using fiftyflowers.com was the easiest part of our wedding planning! Show more

I ended up not using this at all and just placed my centerpieces directly into vases with water.

I LOVED this greenery box! I was going for a very green wedding and this worked perfectly! I would warn brides that the eucalyptus has a very strong scent, so if your reception is in a small space it may bother some of your more sensitive guests. We had a ton of this left over and even after making 6 large EXTRA arrangements we still had leftovers that ended up going to waste.

These were very pretty and offered a subtle pop of color to our arrangements. They were finicky though and shed everywhere!

These flowers were pricey and I was dissapointed with how short the stems were. I wasn't able to use them in my bouquet because the stems were so short. We put a few in each bridesmaid's bouquet and the rest in mason jars with baby's breath as part of our centerpieces. The flowers are very delicate so we could not use them as boutonnieres which was why I had purchased them.

I loved the color and price of the burgundy carnations and I ordered them for a little burst of color in my mostly green Bridal Bouquet. They were not fully opened in time for my ceremony, which is why I only gave them 4 stars. The leftover carnations lasted a very long time though, we had some in our kitchen for almost 2 weeks after the wedding!

We had SO MUCH baby's breath! We ended up just sticking it EVERYWHERE because we ordered way too much of it! It was a good hardy filler flower and helped tied everything together, but if I did it all over again I would only order half. We had to go out and buy more vases and mason jars!
