    June Wedding - Out of Town.... And Invitations!!

    Working with Dorothy was an absolute pleasure!! She is Amazing and Wonderful to work with! She listens carefully and offers thoughtful, creative suggestions. I love Dorothy!! Working from photos of the venue, she planned All the flowers for my daughter’s out-of-town wedding in Georgia, ordering everything from the flowers and garland to the oasis and floral tape. Our “flower team” met at Dorothy’s on Thursday morning to pick up the flowers, enough to fully pack 3 SUVs! Dorothy gave us such complete directions, including drawings, that we amateurs were able to create a truly spectacular event. Included were two very different large wreaths, table arrangements, garland and floral badges for the two-tier staircase that led down to the lawn where the ceremony was held, garland and badges for the arbor (for the ceremony) and for the entrance to the venue. It was a beautiful wedding and we had so much fun “doing” the flowers and following Dorothy’s directions! Dorothy also did a spectacular bride’s bouquet, (didn’t think that was a job for us amateurs!), which arrived the next day, via a dear family member, in an amazing holder that kept it fresh and lovely, and she also made the boutonnières and small bouquets for the mothers. My daughter loved everything!! Wonderful compliments from our guests!! The flowers were amazing and spectacular! It was a Perfect day and.... so much Fun!! Thank you, Dorothy!!!
    And.... Dorothy also found the perfect wedding invitation that both my daughter and I loved! A beautiful complement to the flowers!

    Beautiful flowers

    I was referred to Nichole at Dorothy McDaniel by my wedding planner Whirl Events, and could not be more happy. We didn't want to overspend on flowers and Nichole and DM did not disappoint. She was very easy to work with, listening to our desires and concerns. We were especially pleased with the brides's bouquet which was an absolute masterpiece!

    If you are not working with Dorothy McDaniel and her team - you should rethink your wedding planning. Dana and Dorothy are full of modern and fresh floral ideas, with a business etiquette rarely found in the floral industry. I loved working with them while planning Mayor Bell's daughter's wedding - they completely blew away my bride's expectations and I can't wait for the chance to work with them again. Simply give them your vision and they will turn it into the reality you didn't know you needed. Highly recommend.

    Fifteen years ago, I used Dorothy for my son's wedding and the flowers were breathtaking, bouquets, hanging balls and garlands, flowers on the cake, etc. Absolutely not one worry or problem working with Dorothy. I've also known Dorothy professionally as I'm an interior designer and taught interior design at a local college. She was ALWAYS willing to give lectures to my class and even gave demonstrations in her shop for the students.
    Earlier this summer I asked Dorothy to help me with a gala for the Medal of Honor Society. She worked with me on the colors, containers, etc. and was very generous with her time and charge as she felt it was for such a good cause. Not a worry about the place being set up on time and beautifully done. I go to Dorothy for all my flower needs whether its for walk in cut flowers or funeral flowers being sent. She is definitely a professional I would never hesitate to recommend.

    Dorothy McDaniel provided centerpieces, tablecloths, lanterns, votives and everything we needed for our rehearsal dinner at Gian Marco's in Homewood. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous and perfect for our setting. Dorothy provided personal attention to every detail from my first call to the end of our event. I was working from out of state and did not have to worry about a single thing. She and her team created a beautiful and memorable night for our special event.

    Mrs. Dorothy and her staff were absolutely wonderful during the floral planning of our wedding. From the first meeting to the last, Mrs. Dorothy took time to listen to every detail we wanted to include. She was very flexible during the process and blew us away with her ability to make our vision a reality. She personally ensured our “Wedding Eve Celebration”, wedding ceremony, and wedding reception flowers were perfect. We are very pleased with the service we received from Mrs. Dorothy and look forward to using her in the future.

    Dorothy McDaniel and Glenn are without a doubt the best in the business! They were the first and only florist to come to mind when planning my wedding. They exceeded my expectations and were so easy to work with from out of state. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and elegant. I had numerous compliments on the flowers at the wedding and am still being asked who did the flowers. I had someone tell me I had the "power team"... yes I did! When I walked in The Donnelly House the day of the wedding, I was blown away! Thank you Dorothy and Glenn!

    They were absolutely amazing. They worked within our budget and exceeded our expectations. We had a very small wedding with only 50 people and they gave us the same time and attention as everyone else. I gave her the colors I wanted and a couple of things I liked and did not like and left the rest up to her. The flowers were so amazing!! I would recommend them to everyone for every occasion!

    Dorothy McDaniel and her staff were wonderful to work with during my daughters wedding in April of 2015. Her work is unrivaled and yet she is so personable, reachable and very involved from the 1st meeting to the wedding day. We had a low end budget (under $1000) and I feel that she spent the same amount of time and effort on us as she does lavish budgets. Her prices for do it yourself weddings were cheaper than even the large "wholesalers" here in Birmingham...even their baby's breath is $2 a bunch less than Costco. The market storefront has a do it yourself area to provide an area to create your own bouquets on site. We are planning a wedding for our other daughter and Dorothy McDaniel's Flower Market is definitely my go do floral designer in the Central Alabama area. Thanks Dorothy!

We look forward to many more exciting occasions...and working with Dorothy!!!

    I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Dorothy McDaniel's. When I initially met with Dorothy, I had a general idea of what I was looking for and some photos to show her, and I felt like she captured my vision to perfection. My wedding day was all I ever dreamed of and more, and so much of the beauty of the day came from the gorgeous floral arrangements. Huge thanks to Ellen Morgan who was our point of contact and helped us get our quote to a price we were comfortable with and Alan who was the floral designer and captured my taste and vision to a T! My reception was at the Avon Theater and I've never seen it look more beautiful. My sister said she felt like she was walking into a fairytale wedding, and I agree. If you are on a tight budget, like I was, don't skimp on your flowers. They make all the difference in the world on that special day and I've yet to see anyone do it as well as Dorothy.
    I felt so at ease knowing that they were my florist- there was never a doubt in my mind that everything would be flawless working with Dorothy and team, and I was right in assuming that. We also ordered napkins, koozies, thank you cards, and our invitations from Dorothy because, honestly, she has it all! Out of all my vendors, I was the most impressed with Dorothy McDaniel's in every way. If you're looking for a professional florist who will capture your vision and give you confidence that everything will be handled to perfection on your big day- look no further. I will tell everyone I know that they are crazy if they go anywhere besides Dorothy. They are simply the best.

    Dorothy McDaniels was amazing! I didn't know exactly what flowers I wanted but after meeting with Dorothy and her staff she helped me figure it all out! Dorothy and her staff were so friendly and flexible with my schedule! My flowers and decorations turned out beautiful and I couldn't have imagined everything being more perfect!
