Flowers

Tybee Island Wedding flowers …

We can custom make any arrangements you require. If you want to keep within the beach-y theme we can make bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages with flowers, shells, and starfish. We can do our custom starfish boutonniere for the groom and his groomsmen. My flower lady often tucks a little blue starfish into your bouquet for ’something blue’.

Don’t forget corsages and boutonnieres for the other members of the family! Petals for your flowergirl to scatter on the beach, or petals to place on the sand for the ceremony is a nice touch.

*** We are proponents of keeping our beaches CLEAN. Silk or plastic flower petals are LITTERING and we ask that you only use REAL flower petals.

New rule 7/19/08 ~ Tybee Island Wedding will charge $25/15 minutes of picking up silk flower petals, beer cans, bubble wands, etc., on the beach after your wedding ceremony. PLEASE ~ Leave only your Footprints on Tybee Island.

Contact us to find out prices and availability. We work with flower preference, price or colors. Let us know what you want and we’ll get you a good quote from a fabulous florist.

**Please note that flowers may not always be in stock for good prices. Flowers depend on the season, weather and gas prices. A flower quote in April may not be the same in December. Getting one type of flower is less expensive than mixed bouquets.

Be creative and have large calla lilies for you and birds of paradise for your bridesmaids! Be traditional and have a nosegay of many flowers in a single color. Hand-tied bouquets of a single flower are very popular – roses, mini or large calla lilies, gerbera daisies.

Mix it up! It’s a beach wedding and you can do what you want!

For weddings we have supplied cut and live flowers for the wedding ceremony, as well as ferns, ligustrum trees, hibiscus trees and live plants for the reception decorations.
