Wildflower Dream Wedding
Joy Drawdy (Groom's Mom) Palm Bay, FL
When my son told me that he and his wife-to-be wanted to have an outdoor wedding in the middle of July in Florida, all I could think of was it is going to be so hot! My soon to be daughter-in-law wanted the just picked wildflower look and I thought that daisies, spray roses, baby's breath, lavender limonium, and larkspur along with ferns and greenery from my backyard would give the look she wanted. Her colors were pastels, pink, peach and lavender so it was wonderful that the roses, larkspur, and daisies could be ordered from FiftyFlowers with a variety of colors that matched our color pallete which really helped to keep our overall cost down. We had a tight budget and FiftyFlowers made the
wildflower dream come to fruition without putting us in the poor house. We had gotten a price quote from a friend who was a florist but she could not come close to FiftyFlowers' prices for what we wanted. I was a little nervous after the florist cautioned us that the flowers could arrive and not be in good shape and then the wedding would be ruined, but I had used FiftyFlowers before and had been very happy with the experience. I love that FiftyFlowers customer service calls and texts you when the flowers have been delivered especially since it was 90 degrees outside when they arrived. Of course the flowers looked perfect and I started work on the table centerpieces right away since we had eighty bottles to fill. Each centerpiece had three glass bottles sitting on a slice of wood, and I had looked at thrift stores for months finding just the right different shaped tiny bottles. It had rained and been very hot and muggy the week before the wedding, but the day of it was perfect weather and the temperature even dropped to a comfortable upper 70s by 6:30 when the wedding started. The flowers looked beautiful and I just really want to thank our photographer Kati Rosado (www.katirosado.com) who really captured the essence of the day on film and FiftyFlowers for making our wildflower dream wedding become a reality!
