Has anyone out there had any luck with things like whole blossoms or fifty flowers? I have a month (woo hoo!!!) until our wedding and have a severe last minute change on our florist and am having trouble finding one. Was thinking of doing them ourselves since we really want the whole loose wildflower look anyways, but wasn’t sure about buying them online….
If any of you out there have tried this did it go well?
How far in advance do you need the flowers to arrive?
Also where to store? Refridgerator?

these are the only 2 pictures i have at the moment haha – i just got married and i took these myself when i was in the limo on the way to the reception.
we ordered bulk from sams club – they were delivered on thursday (saturday wedding) they come in bunches of 25 and the buds are wrapped in cardboard – they said when they are delivered to cut them immediately and put them in water- leave the cardboard on for 3-4 hours while they hydrate and then remove them and keep them in the water. Friday – after my bridal luncheon and before rehearsal dinner me and my girls put them together at my moms. stripped them of all leaves and thorns and started bunching them together in bouquets. we stored them at room temp – but it was february but still pretty warm for february around 60-65 degrees (outside)
they say to keep them fresh and closed keep them in colder temps. to open them up put them in warmer temps.
I wish i would have had them a delivered on wednesday instead so they had more time to open but i think they turned out pretty nice 🙂 plus they were inexpensive

Weird, I just responded and now it’s gone! Whatever! Anyway- I just finished reading about twenty different posts from other bees who have used fifty flowers for their DIY bouqets and centerpieces. I’m sorry, I don’t know how to link them, otherwise I would! I’m sure if you just do a quick search in the search bar or look under DIY, you will find the posts I was just reading. Anyway, my friend also used them for her wedding. So far, I haven’t heard a single complaint and they have all turned out AMAZING! I am also doing wildflowers for my bouquet and considering them for centerpieces. I’m still debating between fifty flowers or just hitting up my local farmers market the day before, but the last option kinda scares me!! Good Luck!
