Alternative Wedding Bouquets and Buttonholes handmade in Lancashire
Be Beautiful, Unique and Sustainable on your Wedding Day!
If you’re looking for memorable flowers that fit into a fun loving, outdoors, festival vibe stick around!
Welcome to a place where we add a little twist to what nature can provide…
I’m Jo, the creator of all you see, I’m passionate about making weddings more sustainable and being able to keep your flowers after the wedding is a massive bonus to my couples.
I’d love to get to know you better so we can make sure your flowers reflect who you are and what is important to you both.
Sustainable style at your wedding.....
Planning a sustainable wedding is becoming more and more popular, the increasing concerns for the planet are having a big impact on how couples are choosing their wedding suppliers. I am passionate about giving couples the chance to still have beautiful flowers for their wedding day but with the knowledge that the materials used are sustainable and produce a lower carbon footprint than regular fresh flowers. There are so many advantages to having felt florals over fresh and your flowers will look just as stunning.
Did you know that the average UK wedding emits 14.5 tons of carbon dioxide? To put that into perspective, if you drove the average car once around the world (23,000 miles) you would emit 12.7 tonnes of carbon dioxide!
So reduce this number and go green with your flowers by choosing The Alternative Florist to create your everlasting felt bouquet and wedding party flowers.

What brides say.....
"Jo made my gorgeous wedding bouquet, buttonholes and corsages and they were amazing!
Each flower and leaf is individually created with care and attention, and Jo was very attentive to my vision and exceeded all expectations!
People couldn’t believe they were all made from felt and were so complimentary.
The process was so easy, we had a face to face meeting back in January, then I was kept up to date with progress and colours etc.
For anyone wanting something a bit different and special for their big day, I can’t recommend this lady highly enough 5*"

"The lovely Joanne did my amazing wedding flowers back in 2020. I wasn't sure what I wanted but I knew I wanted to carry my son's ashes in with the bouquet so I left it all to Joanne. The ordering process was so easy and I felt so relaxed.
She definitely did not disappoint! Absolutely incredible bouquet and button holes. Even now 2 years on they look as amazing as they did on my wedding day.
Thank you so much"
