Whimsical Woodland Fall Wedding

Regan Smith () SAN ANTONIO, TX
Hannah and Seth approached me about arranging their wedding flowers after their plans changed due to COVID. Their guest count went from over 200 to 40, and their nuptials moved from a large tent venue to an intimate riverside amphitheater in Texas Hill Country where their guests could gather for a socially distant ceremony and picnic. Hannah and Seth, a videographer and animator, were inspired by animated series like "Over The Garden Wall" and "Kiki's Delivery Service" and wanted a cozy, witchy, mid-autumn feel for their wedding that matched the forested landscape of their venue. FiftyFlowers was able to supply me with the perfect mix of whimsical blooms and greenery for everything from the bride's ... flower crown to sweet bud vases to hand-tied garlands on the ceremony arch and sweetheart table. While the look of this beautiful wedding belied a scorching 90-degree day, which wilted a few of the most delicate blooms, the arrangements held up through picture time and looked absolutely perfect. Not to mention, having the certainty of FiftyFlowers' incredible customer service put this florists' mind at ease in the midst of uncertain times! Show more

Flowers Used for Regan Smith's Arrangements

Chocolate Cosmos Flower ( 10 bunches )

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

These were beautiful, but so so SO delicate. About 25% were too withered upon delivery to even use, and the casualties went up from there. Not to mention the 90 degree heat for the outdoor wedding killed them in every cut arrangement on site. Nonetheless, so beautiful when they weren't dead.

So fragrant and beautiful, these were perfect for the witchy wedding feel my couple was going for. Showed up in great condition and I was able to trip them down in to several stems because they were nice and long.

I would say a good 25% of this showed up to my studio already turning brown, however, I ordered WAY more than I needed (seriously, add up what you think you need and subtract about 5 bunches) and the rest was lush and beautiful. This made up the bulk of the archway decor and couldn't have matched the venue better.

Kahala Peach Roses

Peach Encounter Rose ( 50 Roses )

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

This guy Is getting a 4 star rating ONLY because it showed up closer to a bubblegum-coral pink than a light peach! I definitely would adjust/retake the listing photo for these, because they were way too pink for what I had intended to use them for, but we made them work anyway! They opened beautifully and stayed fresh and beautiful even in the 90 degree heat! If you want a brighter peach in your wedding, GET THIS.

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

BEAUTIFUL! Some of these didn't open all the way, which is expected with this kind of flower, but they were PERFECT for adding a spooky pop of black to each arrangement.

Fall Orange Pom Flower ( 12 Bunches )

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

Beautiful, hearty and abundant! Definitely had more than I needed of these but they were a great addition and perfect for the bride's headpiece! The heat was not very kind to these guys, but almost all of them made it through picture time without issue, so I'm only docking half a star!

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

We actually subbed the orange ranunculus for these, and they were beautiful! I almost liked the orange better, they added such a whimsical feel to the wedding and held up nicely in the 90 degree heat.

Dried Nigella Flowers
Used for: Centerpieces , Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Corsages, Boutonnieres, Other

Perfect! Showed up undamaged, so easy to work with and added some amazing autumnal ambiance to every arrangement

Fresh cut tree fern filler greenery bulk sold near me for delivery
Used for: Bridal Bouquet, Bridesmaid's Bouquets , Corsages, Boutonnieres, Other

If you're looking for a filler green to give a forest look to your florals, this is it! Super easy to work with, added lots of "fluff" to arrangements and was so hearty the whole weekend! Loved it.

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

These held up beautifully and were (surprisingly) the most beloved flower by guests and wedding party members alike. I'm only docking a star and a half for two things: 1-- Smell. Be prepared to smell the paint on these guys. It's not unbearable, but it is noticeable. 2--This, to me, is closer in color to the "Chocolate" tinted solidago than the "Brown Spice" shown in the photo; more a true brown than a deep tan. However, they held up beautifully and fit perfectly with the rest of the arrangements!
