Winter DIY Wedding

Alexandra Tripoli (Bride) CLOVIS, CA
In planning our wedding I found floral prices to be outrageous. I am a pretty creative person so this was the DIY element I chose to take on for our wedding. I did a test run with one order of centerpieces to make sure I knew what was going on and what flowers to expect. Overall the process was stressful at times but enjoyable. A few things: leave yourself WAY more time than you think. All of our greenery was delivered late so we supplemented so that we could actually start with a trip to a nearby grocery store. FiftyFlowers was working as well as they could to get us the delivery, but at certain points no one seemed to have an idea of when they might get delivered or even where it was. ... Because this was also an out of town wedding, there were some delivery issues with having to shuttle things across town. The flowers were stunning in the end, and the stress that can come with this process was worth the almost $3000 saved! Show more

Flowers Used for Alexandra Tripoli's Arrangements

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

These were gorgeous, but arrived late, and only were used in part because of it, as well as having some types (the one I wanted the most) replaced by others. All of the greenery was delivered a day later than stated, which was the day we were putting flowers together. Made for a very rushed process and some supplemental greenery purchased from a local grocery store in the meantime.

GORGEOUS. Perfect addition to all the bouquets and were the focal piece for sure. Looks great with Blush/burgundy combo.

Burgundy Blush Centerpiece ( 12 Large Centerpieces )

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

Gorgeous flowers! Some of the blush roses are more a cream color, and the spray roses are a more true red in both my test run and my official order. The proteas and scabiosa that are included are absolutely stunning. The combo was not exactly as pictured but the flowers were beautiful and added to all elements of the wedding.

Enchanted Centerpiece ( 3 Large Centerpieces )

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

Gorgeous flowers to supplement different centerpieces. Very blush in color, and didn't always blend well but the individual pieces were used throughout arrangements.

These are great and because they come prepared, they are easy to add to different pieces. One and a half stars missing because these were delivered late, part of the way through doing my flowers the morning before my wedding.

Absolutely stunning. I take off one star because the greenery was changed at the last second and it was the greenery I had counted on for a certain look. It was replaced with something else (which they asked me for) but the options were not similar enough to what I'd wanted, which was the silver dollar. I ended up supplementing greenery from a grocery store instead. The more purple looking roses were still pretty pink, and were SO beautiful.
