Wildflowers And Roses

Sarah Martinez (Bride) VALENCIA, CA
From the moment we were engaged, I knew I wanted to arrange my own flowers. Everyone thought I was crazy but FiftyFlowers made the process so easy and fun. I spent months on the website trying to narrow down my flower choices. I knew I wanted it all to look effortless, like I went out to a field and picked the flowers myself. I received 4 separate shipments of flowers on a Thursday morning and I got started. It took me 2 hours, by myself, to prep all of the flowers and I stored my 10 Home Depot buckets in a cool place with no drafts. The flowers were in pretty good condition when I received them and It wasn't until the next day that I realized how thirsty they had been because they all perked ... up and looked even better on Friday. Saturday afternoon came around and it was time to put the bouquets, boutonnières and centerpieces together. I had help from 2 of my bridesmaids and it only took about 5 hours. So much fun to see your vision come to life. My centerpieces were mismatched glass vases that I had been collecting and couldn't have been more simple to arrange. The bouquets required a bit more planning because I wanted all 8 of them to be somewhat uniform. The boutonnières required the most patience but I loved them and so did my (now) husband. The thistle was his favorite. We transported all of the vases by cutting holes into the boxes that the flowers were shipped in. Worked perfectly! Our wedding had many DIY elements, my husband spent the morning stringing bistro lighting, he made all of the signs himself. We didn't have much decor, our venue was beautiful on its own, but flowers were very important to me. I'm so grateful that Fifty Flowers could help me achieve the look I wanted without costing me a fortune. Show more

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

Perfect roses. I loved the color.

This pack was amazing!! My favorite purchase. So much variety and color without having to order each flower individually.I wanted a fresh picked wild look and these flowers are what helped me achieve that, on a budget. The medium pack was enough for me because I wanted small arrangements but the large pack would definitely be worth it.

Used for: Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Bridal Bouquet

This smells amazing. A little tricky to work with but there is sooo much of it.

Orange Pin Cushion Flower ( 20 Protea Stems )

Used for: Centerpieces

One arrived completely broken off the stem but I used it as decor elsewhere so it was ok. Other than that, they were beautiful and much larger than I thought they would be. Great texture and color.
