Northern Michigan Reception

Devyn (Bride) CENTRAL LAKE, MI
During the planning process, we realized that a 'traditional' wedding didn't feel like us or our relationship. Instead, we wanted our wedding to be intimate and adventurous, so we could spend the day focusing on us and creating unforgettable memories. With this in mind, we eloped at Rocky Mountain National Park in June 2019 surrounded by only a dozen of our nearest and dearest. However, we also knew that we wanted to celebrate with ALL of our friends and family back home by drinking, eating, and dancing late into the night. So, to celebrate our newlywed status and announce it to the world, we planned a reception in Northern Michigan, and thankfully, FiftyFlowers helped make our non-traditional, ... private estate, the post-elopement celebration just as beautiful as our mountaintop nuptials. I was nervous at first to use a wholesaler, as we were planning a very minimalist, boho-modern aesthetic. So if the flowers were terrible, there would be no hiding it, but instead, the selection was amazing, the customer service was top-notch, and the flowers were all show-stoppers. Show more

Flowers Used for Devyn's Arrangements

Used for: Bridal Bouquet

Super sturdy and provided more than enough greenery. We even used small snips on the place setting cards to add a pop of green. I also enjoyed the leaves much more than the popular silver dollar eucalyptus which I think can look a bit flimsy.

Another favorite. They didn’t open as big as I expected but ended up being a perfect size. And the unique petals gave such great dimension to my bouquet and the bud vases.

Pink Antique Garden Rose ( 36 Garden Roses )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

They came a bit bruised, but after proper care and storage, they got SO BIG! It was the perfect shade of pink too to compliment the red, burgundy, and fall colors.

I was very nervous to order these as they are known to be super fragile, but they were the exact shade I was looking for and too gorgeous to pass up. They arrived a bit banged up (they got held up overnight at the local airport), but I handled them carefully, followed the directions, and stored them in a cool, dry basement overnight. I was nervous only about half of them would be salvageable, but by the next morning, they had all come back to life!

These were my absolute favorite. The red was so vibrant and lush - not too dark, not too orange. They were exactly what I was hoping for, and we even used them in my hair to add some glam.
