Wedding Flowers- A Family Affair

Kate Glodowski (Bride) Wisconsin Rapids, WI
Creating my own wedding flowers was something I wanted to do from the start. What started as just another addition to my decor turned into the centerpiece of our wedding and a bonding experience for me, my friends, and my family. It began with my vision for the flowers and making sure I ordered enough to cover all of the decor. I searched Pinterest first and this is where I found FiftyFlowers and their Flower Stories. The Flower Stories were a lifesaver for me! I had been stressing trying to figure out how many flowers I needed to order and the stories broke everything down so perfectly! I also made sure that I followed Fifty Flowers delivery dates that made sure my flowers arrived on time. Majority ... of the flowers I ordered through FiftyFlowers, I also ordered some hydrangeas, white roses, and baby eucalyptus from Sam’s Club and used dusty millers from my dad’s garden for boutonnieres. Next, my dad and sister came in and played to their strong suit of organizing and following directions with precision. FiftyFlowers flower prep directions are a must if you have never worked with flowers before. My father and sister were both home to receive all of the flowers, prep the stems and leaves, and hydrated my entire ordered. Lastly, my very talented and creative sister-in-law headed the design of all of my arrangements and made my vision come to life with the help of my bridesmaids. On the Friday before the wedding, they put together all of the flowers from boutonnieres, to bouquets to my arbor swag and they gave my wedding a very natural and elegant look. My flowers turned out exactly how I had envisioned them in my head. I loved the look of the eucalyptus and how they made the color of the burgundy dahlias really pop. The garden roses were so full and beautiful and really made my bouquet look elegant. One of my favorite flowers was the astilbe and the unique texture it added to my bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres. My flowers exceeded all of my expectations and they were the perfect complement to my wedding décor and left me with memories that will last a lifetime. Show more

These came from out of the country and they did end up being a day late. Luckily I followed directions and they still arrived on Friday for our flower day but make sure you hydrate them well!

Make sure you hydrate these for at least a day and follow the flower prep directions on taking off the wrap off so they have enough time to open up. We hydrated them for a day and a half and they really opened up on my Wedding day and gave a great look!

Amazing! They were beautiful and were not as delicate as I was expecting them to be. They were very strong just make sure to hydrate because they come to you closed but really pop after a day of water.
