Vintage/Rustic Fall Wedding

Meagan Covington (Bride) Poughkeepsie, AR
I'm just going to start out by saying if you are a bride reading this, please know that no matter how much you plan, some things will probably go wrong. And that's okay! Your day will still be amazing! Take a deep breath and plan away, but expect the unexpected. On October 21, 2017, I married the father of my child and the love of my life. We had an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception at a beautiful rustic barn venue. We had BBQ, cupcakes, and sweet tea. There was an abundance of things that didn't go as planned, (receiving the wrong colored roses, family not walking down during the processional, my sweet two-year-old daughter with autism not walking me down the aisle, the many guests who ... RSVP'd and didn't show, the complete lack of alcohol...) but I was in a complete state of bliss the entire day because I was with the ones I loved. I had my new husband, my sweet daughter, family from all sides who traveled long distances to be there with us, friends we hadn't seen in years. It was complete bliss and although I can't say I don't wish things had gone the way I planned, I am still over the moon about my perfect day. One of my favorite details is the flowers! I have zero experience with arranging flowers and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. And I was surprised at how easy it was! I knew I wanted a big cascading bouquet of big roses and lots of greenery and that's exactly what I got! Show more

There was SO MUCH more in this pack than I expected! We didn't even use it all! It all looked so beautiful and was everything I imagined it would be. Be warned, the eucalyptus (especially the baby eucalyptus) is VERY sticky and will turn your fingers black when handling it! My bridesmaids and I made our bouquets the morning of the wedding while we were getting our hair and makeup done. I would not recommend doing that due to the stickiness! Overall, I was very pleased with the eucalyptus! It smelled AMAZING! Nearly two months later, it's dried out and still smells great! I have an entire bucket of silver dollar eucalyptus we didn't use that's been sitting outside in water for nearly two months and most of it still looks great! I would say this keeps for a very long time!

I can't say enough about these gorgeous flowers! They smelled wonderful and they were SO BIG! Our hair and makeup ladies even asked if they were peonies! They are a creamy ivory on the outside with a light blush color in the middle and were just gorgeous! Due to the size of them, we ended up having a ton leftover that we stuck in vases around the altar and the aisle and used as petals for the flower girls. I am so happy with how they turned out! However, I had a major crisis with my order. My wedding was on a Saturday, so I had scheduled delivery of these roses and my eucalyptus DIY greenery box for the Thursday before the wedding. The description on these roses says they take two days to fully open. When my roses and eucalyptus were delivered, I opened the boxes to begin processing. MY WHITE GARDEN ROSES WERE HOT PINK! Not like a normal variation in the color of the roses, they were the COMPLETE WRONG ROSES! After catching my breath, I called the customer service number and they asked me to send them pictures of the flowers and the box so they could see what I was seeing. They agreed, I was sent the complete wrong flowers. They gave me the option of either a full refund of the roses or to have my correct roses overnighted to my house. I chose to have my roses overnighted, and I'm so glad I did! Their customer service is FANTASTIC! They answered all of my questions honestly and even called to check that I received the correct flowers the second time and told me how to get them to open up for the wedding the next day! They opened up beautifully by Saturday morning so my bridesmaids and I spent the morning putting bouquets together. It was a nice way to bond and spend the morning with my girls! Although my order was originally messed up, I am so impressed with how well their customer service handled the situation that I will still recommend them to every future bride I know!
