Everlasting wedding bouquets, buttonholes & gifts... Crafting your forever memories

Quirky & Unique Luxury Textile Wedding Flowers... For the couple that want something original for their big day!

Alternative wedding flower bouquets

Welcome to Charlotte Laurie Designs! I'm Charlotte, passionate felter, artist and lover of all things wedding. I established my alternative wedding flower business, specialising in felt wedding bouquets, quirky groom buttonholes and luxury textile wedding gifts in 2012 after making the crazy decision to create all of my own alternative wedding flowers. I found that there was a real gap in being able to find wedding suppliers providing quirky and original alternatives to traditional wedding bouquets which still ooze chic and luxury, but are more sustainable and having a geeky edge. Fast forward to 2020 and I now have an exclusive range including felt & button wedding bouquets, character grooms buttonholes, felt flower garlands and much more. You can shop the full alternative wedding flowers range via my Etsy store, or get in touch to discuss bringing your wedding flower dreams to life!

"I have only ever wanted a felt flower bouquet for my wedding. I scoured Etsy and the rest of the internet for a month and kept coming back to CharlieLaurieDesigns. She was absolutely phenomenal throughout the custom design process for my bouquet and boutonnière. My bouquet is perfect and will last a lifetime! Thank you so much for making the only thing I really wanted at my ceremony (besides the husband, of course!)"

Sustainable style for the eco-conscious bride...

It is an unavoidable truth that weddings can cause a lot of waste and put a strain on our precious environment. I am passionate about helping brides to make eco-friendly swaps that will still give them the unique style they are looking to create, whilst reducing the impact of using fresh flowers. We always strive to use sustainable materials, creating wedding floral concepts that can be preserved forever. So by choosing an alternative wedding bouquet from us you can reduce your wedding carbon footprint as well as have the bouquet of your dreams.

"Absolutely love my buttonholes ... a must for any Star Wars geek! Charlotte kept in touch as she was making them and let me know when they were being despatched etc. Also I ordered one originally and then decided to place another order, at which point she emailed me to see if I wanted to wait so she could post both together, saving me postage. They are really well made and I was so happy with them!"
