I knew from my first meeting with the ladies at Antebellum that I was in good hands. Marian and Christine took my ideas and ran with it. They created a beautiful look for my wedding and it was exactly what I was trying to achieve. The flowers and décor used at the reception...

I was so impressed with Antebellum Designs from the moment my mom & I first met with them. I wasn't really sure what I wanted as far as floral arrangements went, I just knew I wanted to keep it simple. Marian & Christine did such an amazing job, showing me pictures to get an... Read More idea of what I liked. They were incredibly knowledgeable about my venue as well & while it seemed like other florists were trying to "up-sell" me, Marian & Christine were very honest. They made me feel like they were truly focused on my vision for my wedding, as opposed to adding on extra arrangements that I didn't really need or want. I think that was really what sealed the deal for my mom & I. Their pricing is very fair & they were very conscious of what would be in season for my New Year's Eve wedding - suggesting seasonal alternatives that fit my style. They were incredibly laid back & put me at ease. I truly felt like I was able to leave everything in their hands. On the day of the wedding, they delivered everything promptly & it was so beautiful! My bouquet was amazing, the bridesmaids all looked perfect, as did the guys & I was so happy with what they came up with for the moms & our "house party". I really can't recommend them enough! Thank you both for making my day beautiful & special!

Antebellum definitely exceeded my expectations. I had quite unusual centerpieces chosen out, such as trees and birdcages. A few days before the wedding I was freaking out about what I had chosen but when I saw my centerpieces on my wedding day I was completely blown away....

The flowers ended up costing more than my dress but they were gorgeous, unique, and looked beautiful in my pictures. Both Marian and Christine were very easy to work with, professional, and they always quickly responded to all my emails.

Marian and her team at Antebellum Design are amazing! I am not much of a flower girl, however after leaving my initial meeting I was SO EXCITED. Marian was wonderful with bringing my floral ideas and color scheme to life. She spent extensive time with us, showing pictures,...

Antebellum was very disappointing, in terms of flower quality, longevity, and customer service. The flowers wilted halfway through our wedding day. This was most noticeable on the men's boutonnieres, and the women's corsages. By the time of the reception, every single... Read More boutonnière had clearly wilted. The table centerpieces fared better, but the centerpiece itself looked cheap and had a do-it-yourself appearance. We paid a significant amount of money for these flowers, and we expected the flowers to last a single day. They did not, and we were very disappointed. In addition, Marian was difficult to work with, she was pushy and rude, both to the bride and to the groom, in the weeks leading up to the wedding. We considered backing out of our agreement because of this poor customer service, but we did not need another thing to add to the list of wedding preparations. Looking back on it, we would have used Central Market for our flowers. Antebellum was poor all around, and the flowers ended up being the only thing that went poorly during our wedding day. We do not recommend Antebellum Flowers for your wedding day.

In my opinion, flowers add so much to the details of the wedding/reception. Antebellum brings your choices together to create a work of art. They are wonderful at making the arrangements versatile. We were able to use the wedding flowers in the reception area with great... Read More ease. Our venue was the same for both events, but if you must transfer locations, they still make the transit simple. My daughter and I met with Marian and Christine and they were very attentive to the overall look, atmosphere, and desires of my daughter. They listened to every detail making suggestions on ways to get the look at the best price. When you have questions along the way, they are prompt to respond. When we arrived at the venue, I was able to see them and glad I did at that time, for they did their work and were gone before I realized. I would have loved to share with them how beautiful I felt everything was! Marian and Christine are artists! You will not be disappointed!!!

As an artist herself, my daughter's main priority at her wedding day was the arrangement of flowers. Antebellum Design successfully turned a 21st century wedding into a fairy tale. We got so many requests about the flower design; I wish I had a stack of Antebellum business cards... Read More with me. My favorite comment at the wedding was,"I never copy people, but I am using Antebellum Design and I want these exact flower arrangements."

Antebellum Design was prepared even for such rare situation. Marian and Christine, the image of Antebellum Design, have impeccable taste and class. We will hire them again for our next big event.
