Beautiful June Wedding

Susan Umstead (Mom) Chapel Hill, NC
My daughter Lindsey knew florals were going to be a very important part of her wedding, but she knew that booking a florist to do what she wanted was not in her budget. She found FiftyFlowers doing research on wholesale florals and decided to go with this vendor because of all the positive reviews. A family friend who is a florist graciously did the arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages for us. We went with fairly simple arrangements, but the flowers tied everything together and made the venue so lovely, so we did not need anything extravagant or complex. My daughter wanted lush bouquets and simple eucalyptus greenery boutonnieres, which looked great against the gray suits the guys ... wore. We were amazed by the flowers we received! They were absolutely gorgeous and we were stunned by how much we had to work with. The process was also very easy thanks to the instructions for caring for and prepping the flowers. They all opened up beautifully and most everything lasted several days to a couple of weeks following the wedding. The customer service we received leading up to the wedding was phenomenal and our experience overall was fantastic. We could not be more pleased and grateful that we went with FiftyFlowers. Will definitely order from here again!! Show more

Flowers Used for Susan Umstead's Arrangements

Purple Carnation Flowers Mixed ( 80 Carnations, Allow 7 Days for Delivery )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Other

These were a last minute decision and we got them to fill in our arrangements some, but they ended up being beautiful and one of our favorite flowers. They opened up very well and were absolutely beautiful with the other flowers. They tied together the mismatched purple bridesmaids dresses and really popped.

Beautiful yellow roses! A very light and pleasant shade of yellow, smelled lovely, opened up well, and were easy to work with. They added a great pop of color.

Stock Lavender Purple Flower ( 5 Bunches or 50 Stems )

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

This was another favorite! The purple color of these is amazing. Unfortunately it was a really hot day so the began to wilt and droop a bit during the outdoor ceremony, but they stayed beautiful in water and for a while out of water.

Creamy Ivory Peony Rose ( 36 Garden Roses )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Other

These were BEAUTIFUL and my daughter's favorite of the bunch. The opened up so beautifully, smelled amazing, and really popped in the bridal bouquet. The really did look like peonies!

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Other

We received a TON of these and were able to use them across a lot of different things in our venue. They were a little smaller than expected but that ended up working to our advantage. We placed them in a garland runner we had and they were such an elegant touch. Very sturdy flowers.

Lavender Roses ( 75 Roses )

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

We LOVED these roses. They were sturdy and added such a beautiful lavender color to the bouquets and arrangements. Smelled fantastic.

Snow White Flower Centerpiece ( 22 Premium Centerpieces )

Used for: Centerpieces , Other

We ordered these as a base for the centerpieces and filled in with the purple and yellow flowers we ordered. The spray roses were replaced by white carnations, which still looked very nice.

Caramel Antique Garden Rose ( 48 Garden Roses )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

These were BEAUTIFUL. They are quite delicate and we're glad they lasted as long as they did in our NC June wedding, and overall we were impressed. They added a nice vintage touch to the bouquets/arrangements, which fit with the venue (old vintage barn).

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

Awesome roses! They opened up beautifully and smelled AMAZING. We had so many to work with and used them all over the place. They lasted a very long time and we simply stunning.

We received SO much eucalyptus - even more than we expected - and were able to do a lot with it all over the venue. Looking back we probably would have ordered less, but we were glad to have a lot to play with. Very fragrant.
