I honestly cannot say enough good things about Marian and her Antebellum team. After meeting with several "cookie-cutter" florists in the Dallas area who I had been referred to, I decided to do my own research. I knew from the moment I walked in the door to their warm and inviting showroom that I was in the right place. To say they went above and beyond doesn't do it justice. Like most brides, I had a wish list that far exceeded my budget, but you never would have known on the day of my wedding thanks to her vast knowledge of flowers and creativity.
On top of creating amazing floral arrangements, they couldn't have been nicer, more responsive, or flexible to our ever-changing needs. I did my fair share of chasing down vendors about headcount changes, day-of timelines, etc., but they were never one of them. We loved working with them so much by the time we had finished all of our consultations I was legitimately sad that Marian had another wedding that evening and wouldn't be able to physically attend my reception as a guest!
There is no doubt in my mind that if I had to plan a wedding again tomorrow, Antebellum would be the first vendor I secured for my date.
Marian and Christine at Antebellum Design & Events do exceptional work and are a pleasure to work with. Everything they use is top notch - vases, stands, candles, lanterns etc.
The flowers and arrangements are gorgeous and very fresh. I would recommend Antebellum for any decorating event you may have.
I had no idea what I wanted for our flowers other than the colors. Marian and Christine were so helpful in deciding on the types and colors of flowers to use as well as the size of the arrangements. Everything from our ceremony flowers to the bouquets to the centerpieces were beautiful and stayed fresh throughout our wedding. They even came back after the wedding to pick up the vases. I couldn't ask for a better experience and it was so affordable!
Where many brides and MOBs have no idea what they want, we were the opposite. We had a vision of what we wanted and were searching for a floral design company that could help us bring that vision to life. Not only did the team at Antebellum Designs exceed our expectations in that area, but also brought their depth and breadth of experience to create a wedding beyond our wildest dreams. Two weeks after the wedding, I'm still getting calls, e-mails and comments from wedding guests and friends of those guests, asking about the unique and beautiful florals that created a memorable ambiance and magical evening!
I interviewed several floral design companies prior to selecting Antebellum. Having design expertise, innovation, and overall value were important; however, most important to us was a feeling of true partnership and that gut feeling you have that these are not just talented people...they are good people that you'll truly enjoy working with.
From our first meeting to the wedding day, we felt "special" and knew that they took great pride in creating florals that were beyond expectations, different than anyone had seen before and breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL! These ladies are phenomenal. I have the utmost respect and admiration for them and am happy that a number of people have reached out to me for their contact information, based on what they saw and loved at the wedding. They will not be disappointed!
Antebellum was great to work with. I had changed my mind about 3 different times and they were very patient and listened to me each time. The flowers on our cake table were amazing, as were the guest reception tables. Our head table was absolutely to die for as well. I was a bit disappointed in the flowers on our bar. I do not know if it was Antebellum's fault, but I didn't understand fully what they were going to look like. I had a picture for inspiration and the final result looked nothing like the picture. I also thought that the boutineers looked a little worn by the time they made it to the men. But again, I do not know if they just got a little worn during transportation (someone else picked them up since the bouts were going to a different location). Overall, I think that they were very nice to work with and 99% of everything looked great!
These ladies were amazing & completely in tune with exactly what I had pictured for my wedding & that is exactly what they delivered!
I could not be more pleased with Marian's work! Between her and my venue, her company is 1 of my top 2 favorite vendors we used. Her pricing was very reasonable. She was easy to get in contact with and responsed within a timely manner for all requests and questions. She did amazing at going over and helping to put together all my colors and exactly what I wanted. I was blown away when I picked up all my bouquets our wedding day. They were gorgeous and top quality! Very full, colorful and well put together. I couldnt imagine it going or looking any better than what I experienced. Recommend 100% without hesitation.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with antebellum. Christine and Marian were so detail-oriented and made me feel much more at ease about my special day. The flowers were the most important part of my wedding and they were perfect!! They had great suggestions for various aspects of the wedding and I am so appreciative for their help. I would use them again in a heartbeat!
I knew Marian and her team were the right choice the second I met them. She took us on a tour of her huge warehouse and helped figure out what style of wedding I wanted. She had wonderful ideas and helped create a truly beautiful day. The day of my wedding it was a little windy. The ceremony was outside and during my pictures just before the wedding one of the candelabras fell over and glass broke everywhere! Marian was super nice about it and figured out how to replace it and make everything workout even in the crazy wind. I also forgot to ask her petals for the flower girl so Marian offered to run out and get some for us that day. She was so nice and helpful truly cannot say enough great things about Antebellum Design & Event Co. I have recommended them to so many friends already!
I planned my wedding in less than 2 months so I really had to make quick decisions. I contacted Antebellum Design and sent them a few pictures of what I was looking for. I was floored by how incredible they looked on my wedding day. The colors were so vibrant and they pop in every picture. I would definitely recommend them to a friend. Terrific experience!
Antebellum Design did an amazing job with our wedding! They really captured the essence of what I was looking for! The arrangements were perfect. They took my vision along with my budget and made it happen! The Antebellum team was extremely attentive in their responses! I will definitely be referring them to every one of my friends. Truly an amazing group to work with!
Marian and Christine of Antebellum Floral Design are my absolute favorite florist to work with! As an event planner for the DFW area I have had the opportunity to work with the Antebellum Team multiple times. My brides are always beyond happy and their final product is just stunning! Bottom line they are an amazing choice for any bride or individual looking for a Florist for their event!
My September 14th wedding at the Dallas Arboretum was absolutely gorgeous! From the moment I met Marian and her associate during our initial appointment, I knew I wanted her to be my florist and didn't look anywhere else! She was pleasant, easy to work with and able to create a dream vision with only a few photos and thoughts of my own. She is really sweet and made the process completely stress-free! She sent a proposal within just a couple of days and the pricing was incredibly fair! It helped that I provided a specific budget and was able to get everything from my wish list without exceeding that budget. I really felt like she was honest and focused more on customer service and making me happy rather than trying to sell me on floral details that would increase the cost. Within one week of my event, she was happy to make last minute adjustments. On the day of the wedding, her team of associates delivered everything to the Arboretum. Her staff was friendly, professional and helpful! The floral arrangements at the ceremony and reception sites were gorgeous and exactly as I had imagined. I could not have have been more impressed or pleased! So glad I did business with Antebellum Design! If I ever need floral arrangements for future events, I will be sure to call Marian!
I absolutely loved Antebellum Design. Their years of expertise and personal style helped create a wedding decor beyond what I had ever imagined. They are easy to work with and ask a ton of questions to make sure they have every detail covered. I highly recommend them, you will be very pleased with their professionalism and attention to detail.
The ladies at Antebellum were great! They listened to all of my feedback regarding flowers and made beautiful bouquets for our big day. They went above and beyond to help out a stressed out bride! The day of my wedding I got my hair done in the morning and decided a few white flowers in my hair would just complete the look. I called Antebellum an hour before they were going to deliver my flowers and asked if they could bring a long a few small white roses to put in my hair. When I got to the venue, everything was waiting, and they didn't even charge me extra for the few extra flowers.
We were very pleased how they worked with our budget. There were a few mishaps when the flowers arrived but they solved all problems before the wedding and everything turned out great!
I super loved Antebellum! The flowers were one of the hardest things to pick for me but Marian and her team made it easier. I picked them among 5 florists not only because they were able to match my budget but also because they got my idea on the first consultation. I got so many compliments about the flowers. I'm very glad I found them!!
I walked in with a few mood shots and a moderate budget; walked out excited and relieved I could achieve the look for the right price. Marian, owner of Antebellum Design & Event Co. handled everything! Her experience and eye for décor really showed. We received nothing but compliments from our guests! Marian is honest and understanding. Highly recommend!
From our first meeting with Marian, and throughout the entire process, we were pleased with the professionalism, promptness and good communication we had with Antebellum. With just a short meeting, Marian was able to perfectly capture what we had in mind for all of our flowers and arrangements. Not knowing very much about floral arrangements myself, I was a little nervous at first, but everything turned out absolutely perfect. The attention to detail was amazing, and everyone at the wedding mentioned how beautiful the floral arrangements were. The timing was also great, and everything was set up just as it needed to be, without any delays. Would definitely recommend!
First of all, Marian is super sweet and loves what she does. You can tell right away that she knows a lot about flowers, what will look good, and how to stay within a budget.
My mom, husband, and I searched for about 3 months for a florist for our Dallas April wedding and keep coming across florists that would not keep the price down and would not include the flowers we wanted. They also were more concerned about getting us to sign a contract than trying to figure out what we wanted. Then FINALLY we were referred to Antebellum.
We meet with Marian and told her about our budget, what we were thinking we wanted, and she made great suggestions for better colored flowers, more in-season ones, and more cost effective ideas.
Once we signed the contract, she continued to be easy to get a hold of, keep me up-to-date with her flower ordering (seeing if they came in colorful or not), and helped me add a bouquet on for my bridal shoot.
Our wedding turned out great and the flowers really brought all the colors in that I wanted! Antebellum added to the class for the reception at the Belo Mansion.
