Just a few pics of the flowers I had on my wedding day. I ordered from fiftyflowers and my local Costco. If you order wholesale flowers from anywhere, be prepared for some loss. It took my flowers about 4 hours to rehydrate from fiftyflowers.

ooo! I was just looking at their site debating which flowers to pick! Do you happen to remember what you used in your bouquet? Did you use them for reception flowers too?
ETA: I forgot to mention: GORGEOUS!!

What kind of loss do you mean? As in you lost some of the flowers? What was the overall quality like? I did my sister’s wedding flowers, and it was fun and cost effective. I’m thinking of doing the same for my own one day. I just want to be prepared!

@housebee: Thanks for the pics! You look fabulous! Did you notice any difference between the quality of Costco and fiftyflowers? Also, did you just buy whatever was at Costco store or did you actually order from them online?

Aww thanks for the compliments ladies. I actually just walked into Costco and purchased bouquets that looked good at the store (2 bunches of roses, 1 bunch of alstroemeria). The flowers were delivered 2 days before my event, the bouquets were wrapped the day before (full 24 hours of hydration) and the total cost for all of my flowers was $320.
EDIT: Flowers used include roses, peony roses (metropole), spray roses, hypericum berries and alstroemeria.
