While our unique Do-It-Yourself program is an excellent way for brides to have fun, be involved in the floral process, and save money, The Flowerman does have an award-winning design team as well!  Our design staff can construct any or all of your wedding pieces, saving you time and stress.  We think it’s an excellent idea to have our design team construct your bridal bouquet at the very least, and many brides choose to have our design staff make their entire wedding!  Our talented designers are experts at creating beautiful floral pieces for your special day, and they also offer delivery, decorating, and set-up services.
Here are a few pictures we snapped of December/January designer floral arrangements.  Enjoy!
A hand-tied bouquet of white hydrangea, plum mini calla lilies, white mini calla lilies, and peacock feathers.


A hand-tied designer bridal bouquet of mixed red, yellow, and bi-color “circus” roses, mini calla lilies, and hypericum berries.


This designer-made bouquet consists of mixed red roses, gerbera daisies, mums, and chocolate cosmos. 


Decorating the doors of the church with floral wreaths is a lovely way to welcome your guests.


Here’s a close-up look at one of the designer-made floral wreaths that decorated the doors of the church. Lovely!


Need an aisle runner? We sell high-quality felted damask ones in lengths of 50′, 75′, 100′.


Our designers can make beautiful pieces to decorate the altar area. This bride chose two designer sprays for either side of the altar and a unity candle piece for the table.


Here’s a close-up look at a designer-made unity candle piece with the candles built into the floral arrangement.


Some brides decorate the pews or chairs lining the aisle. This bride chose a simple knotted ribbon and a small cluster of flowers to accent the walkway.


This centerpiece has a lovely mix of colors and textures. It consists of roses, stock, snapdragons, alstroemeria, and greenery for a bit of added color and fullness. If you don't care much for greenery, just let us know that in your consultation. We cater our designs to fit each bride's individual style!


Not all of your centerpieces need to be the same height or style. This bride mixed it up by decorating some tables with tall submerged pieces.


All-white flower arrangements are elegant and classy. This centerpiece is constructed of large white football mums in a 6″ square vase.


Other tables were decorated with white roses in a 6″ square vase. So simple and super classy.


This designer centerpiece consists of mixed Christmas greenery, red roses, and gold accents. Red rose petals are scattered on the table for color, and they add a relaxing floral scent.


This lovely silver and white bridal bouquet consists of ivory roses, white tulips, silver brunia, and dusty miller greenery.


Here’s a look at the bouquets for the entire bridal party.  The tulips add a nice hint of green to the pieces.


These cute centerpieces consist of light blue hydrangea, ivory roses, and white tulips. The tables were accented with framed pictures of the bride and groom of holding table numbers.  Cute!


These striking tall pieces were mixed around the room. They consist of light blue hydrangea and curly willow tips.  The willow is accented with small hanging crystals.  How elegant!!!
