I am thinking about using fifty-flowers to make all of my bouquets, etc and I plan on buying individual flowers for those. To try and cut down on the stress of having to do ALL of the flowers, I thought that they pre-made centerpieces they offer might be a good route. Has anyone used the pre-made centerpieces and if so, what kind of experience did you have with it? Any help would be much appreciated 🙂 Thanks!

I have been doing flowers for a bunch of friends and family weddings and have used several different companies, but now I only use FiftyFlowers, because they haven’t let me down and their customer service is awesome! I have only used their pre-made centerpieces once but they turned out amazing!! It’s nice because they come with just the right amount of flowers needed and in lots of different assortments. I recieved them a couple days prior to the wedding, trimmed the stems and placed them in buckets of water to hydrate (just like the other flowers) then the day before I just placed them in vases! Simple, easy and definetly helped with costs!! Good luck and best wishes!

Always be suspicious of posters with only 1 or 2 post counts.
I used Fifty Flowers and was less than impressed with their ranunculus. They were wilty and damaged and did not perk up like they said they would. I ended up going to a florist at the last minute to have a bouquet made. Thank god I only did florals for my bouquet and didn’t have to change my plans at the last minute for everything!! A flower mart or ordering the flowers through a florist without having them arrange them will probably be your best bet for quality flowers without having to wait on pins and needles to see what condition your Fifty Flowers order arrives in…!

Thank you for the information! It’s so hard to tell because it seems I’m hearing mixed reviews of the quality of flowers from Fifty Flowers….some people rave about them and others have had terrible experiences. I’m trying to keep costs down but I also don’t want a bunch of wilted, ugly flowers!

I used Fifty Flowers for my centerpieces. I just ordered stems, not the premade centerpieces. They were beautiful. I actually liked their roses better than the ones from my florist, who did my bouquets. I would definitely recommend them with the caveat to make sure someone is home when they are schedule to be delivered. I was not and Fed Ex ended up losing my flowers. It was all resolved, but I had a nightmare for a few hours thinking that I’d have no flowers. This was Fed Ex’s fault, though, not Fifty Flowers.
