Whimsical Jewel Tone Garden

Arielle Thibodeaux (Bride) INDIANAPOLIS, IN
I didn’t have an overall theme for our wedding but if I had to call it something it would be a whimsical jewel-tone garden. I knew I wanted a lot of flowers and was not going to be able to fit a florist in my budget with what I wanted. I ordered flowers from multiple vendors but the bulk of them came from Fifty Flowers. I am pretty good at DIY and I chose a friend who had an eye for art. We watched several YouTube videos and it was pretty easy to execute but very very time-consuming. I’m glad I did a Wednesday order because it took all day Thursday to put everything together (Saturday wedding). It wasn’t unmanageable but it was very tiring. Overall I know we saved thousands ... of dollars and everyone was extremely impressed with our floral arrangements. Fifty Flowers was really great about communication. I received emails about when everything shipped and everything arrived Wednesday morning. They even instructions for Rose Care with a video and I follow that to a T. Some of our flowers did not fare well and some of the colors came in incorrect. When I contacted support I was able to get a 50% refund on one of the orders but they did not refund the more problematic one. Beware that if you have any problems they want pictures of everything bunched together. I didn’t know this and I had already put flowers in bouquets, that died the next day, thus the issue as to why I didn’t have a photo of them bunched together. Support even said they were going to contact me a few days after the wedding but they did not. We went on our honeymoon and I kind of just let it go. Overall I was happy with everything but there were some problems along the way. If I were a little more particular of a bride, I probably would not have been happy but because I was using jewel tones the colors ended up working out fine but I’m really glad I had ordered some extra purple flowers otherwise I would’ve had no purple. Which was my most important color. Overall I did save a ton of money and I’m very happy with every how everything turned out.

Flowers Used for Arielle Thibodeaux's Arrangements

Stock Midnight Purple Flower ( 3 Bunches or 30 Stems )

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

The stock midnight purple arrived sleepy but once they were put in water they woke up. They were a beautiful deep shade of purple. They looked fantastic in the centerpieces and bouquets. They were a very hearty flower. We had a Wednesday arrival, cleaned up and put in water that night, assembled Thursday and had a Saturday wedding.

Lavender Roses ( 25 Roses, Allow 4 Business days for delivery )

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

I received the basic lavender rose. They were a nice hearty rose and worked perfectly in all of my centerpieces and bouquets. I recommend following the instructions for Rose care and they will perk up nicely. We had a Wednesday arrival, cleaned up and put in water that night, assembled Thursday and had a Saturday wedding.

Creamy White Spray Bulk Roses ( 6 Bunches (Allow 4 Business days for delivery) )

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

These were a nice hearty filler rose. Each stem had about three buds to it. We were able to use them to fill bouquets and centerpieces. I highly recommend following the video and instructions for Rose care and they will wake up. We had a Wednesday arrival, cleaned up and put in water that night, assembled Thursday and had a Saturday wedding.

Whimsical Garden Rose Sample Pack ( Whimsical Sample Pack )

Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets

I was extremely disappointed in these garden roses. Most of them were not usable. I love garden roses. My plan was to save them for the bridal bouquet as well as the bridesmaid bouquets. Most of them completely fell apart. Once they were put into bouquets they were flat by the next day. I did a Wednesday arrival, cleaned them up and follow directions to a T, put them together on Thursday, and they were pitiful by Friday. They also had ants. I contacted support about them and was unable to get a refund because I did not provide a picture of the ones I had thrown in the trash or them all bundled together. By the time they started dying they were already in bouquets. These were way too delicate of a flower. Disappointed because these were the flowers I was most looking forward to for my bridal bouquet.

Lavender Hues Centerpiece ( 18 Centerpieces )

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

If you are needing exactly purple flowers this is not a bunch to order. I used these as fillers for our centerpieces and bouquets, which worked perfectly. However the colors were not purple. The roses came in hot pink. The stock flowers arrived as light purple but by Saturday had turned blue. This indicated to me they had dyed the stock flowers. I ordered 18 of these and we were able to make a lot of centerpieces. This is a really great option to help fill out everything but only order if you’re not partial to only having purple. I was able to get a 50% refund since the colors were not correct. In my photos the blue stock and pink roses are the ones from this bunch. The dark purple stock and lavender roses I had ordered separately and I am really glad I did or I would not have had any purple flowers-which was my wedding colors. We had a Wednesday arrival, cleaned up and put in water that night, assembled Thursday and had a Saturday wedding.
