Lower Alabama in Bloom

Let the beaches, back roads, streets and sidewalks of your favorite coastal communities inspire an unforgettable bridal bouquet.


Pale peaches and pinks bring to life the Southern femininity of the classic Old Mobile bride. Meaningful personal touches, such as vintage ribbon and pearl jewelry, simultaneously lend timelessness and personality.

Just like the town itself, traditional meets quirky in the artistic community’s combination of blooms and succulents. Something old, such as an antique cameo from a grandmother or relative, lends a nod to great love stories that came before your own.

Green Succulents • White Tulips • White Gladiolas Petals • Dusty Miller • Scabiosa Pods • Cameo Necklace • Silver Striped Organza Ribbon


The small city’s Native American roots inspire a collection of unique greenery and tribal details perfect for an adventurous bride with an earthy vibe. The especially daring may choose to subtly incorporate actual taxidermy, like this feathered friend.

Bayou La Batre

Charming elements of the beloved fishing village, such as hooks and netting, are balanced out with full foliage in this maritime menagerie. Close attention to detail, for instance matching the colors of oyster shells with thistle, creates cohesion in an otherwise busy bunch.

Orange Beach

This bouquet draws inspiration from the coastal town with a combination of beachy details and tropical foliage. The bright hues reflect its namesake as well as the free spirit of its shores. Driftwood and palm leaves lend an unexpected dimension that won’t easily be forgotten.
