My cousin used BloomsByTheBox.com, the flowers came out GORGEOUS! I helped her put them together and the flowers were on time, cheap, the customer service was great and all the flowers looked amazing. We used the DIY Flowers 101 guide before receiving the flowers and it really helped when we put them together. Hope this helped!

I used fiftyflowers, but I’ve heard that delicate blooms don’t ship well.  My flowers came in droopy, but perked up after a couple hours in water.  If you are planning on using hardier stems, I would recommend them, however more delicate flowers are probably better off being purchased locally.  I also purchased flowers from myu local Costco as fillers (ecuadorian roses and alstroemeria).  Here are a few pics.

@Mrs Christopher:  I didn’t use the company but I did want to add that shipping hydrangeas would be a very delicate task. They are quite prone to drooping/wilting even if you use a professional florist and must be specially treated to last. I would suggest that if you are set on hydrangeas (totally understand, they were my main flower) to go with either a local wholesaler, professional florist or perhaps Costco/Sam’s Club.

Hydrangeas need to be submerged in water upon delivery and have thier stems cut under water. They need lots of hydration. Gardenia and stephenotis are also difficult for an amature to work with because they typically don’t come with stems and need to be wired.

I used them for sending carnations to my sorority for rush, and they turned out really well. 


Sorry it’s not for a wedding, but I had a good experience, at least 🙂 They needed to come a few days prior because they had to open up.
