Red Winter Wedding

Cathleen Pereira (Bride) GAITHERSBURG, MD
My husband and I wanted a wedding with all of the bells and whistles, but at a great cost. (Who wouldn’t want it at a great cost right?) FiftyFlowers really helped out with the great cost. Our flowers came out so beautiful. I am sure that my flowers would have been triple the cost if we used a florist. Our color scheme was red and gold. We did have an issue with our red dahlia flowers, but FiftyFlowers was on top of it and provided me with the Walk of Fame Garden Roses. The color was the same as the red dahlia, so it wasn’t a huge deal. If I had one advice for any DIY florist out there, it would be: order your focal and secondary flowers here. I also ordered white roses; senorita ... roses, spray roses and all of my greenery from Sam’s club and the quality of the roses aren’t the same. FiftyFlowers came in and opened up so well. Show more

Flowers Used for Cathleen Pereira's Arrangements

Thistle Blue Flower ( 50 stems )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

I was pleasantly surmise how enormous the middle was on my thistles. It's a great flower to use to add a pop of blue.

These babies are pretty darn big. I really didn't know what I was getting into. I still enjoyed them. They don't look the best from all angles. They look the best straight on. I would have halved my order if I knew how large they were. Other than that, they were really easy to peel and they are very sturdy.

I can't explain how much I weirdly loved these berries. I ordered them because I needed a filler flower and some more red. I really enjoyed them in person. These were very easy to prep and they are study.

Walk of Fame Garden Rose ( 36 Garden Roses )

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

These are a perfect red flower. I wanted something that was different from a burgundy and normal red flower. The flower has a velvety texture. I also purchased the black bacarra rose. It has the same color texture, but it does look different. This flower was actually a replacement flower, but I am thrilled with it.

Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet

These were one of my secondary flowers, but they could have been the focal flower. They get pretty large and the velvet look really draws you in. My best friend lost it over these flowers. She couldn't get over how well they looked. The photo online does a great job capturing how they look in person.
