A Brides "Thank you"!

Mark and Roisin wedding 12/04/2012

Hello Debra,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the flowers you created for our wedding. They were exactly what I had hoped for and more. You totally got the rustic feel I was going for and the choices of flowers were just stunning! On the day of the wedding, I was constantly looking at the center pieces and was in awe of your creation and for the days after the wedding, the flowers remained around villa Palazzola and everyone remarked on their beauty. I wanted so badly to take some home but unfortunately I'll have to settle for my pictures and memories of them.

I was sure to tell Joyce how impressed I was with you. I wish you all the best for the future and once again THANK YOU for making our wedding day look and feel so very special.

All Our Best,

Mark and Roisin

The Bridal Exit

Many brides do not give much consideration to decorations for her departure from home to the church on the day of her wedding. My guess is that this is mostly due to the economy. If savings have to be made, this is one of the first places where decorations will be sacrificed. But when a woman decides to create a dramatic exit I am there to help her with designs.

Probably one of my personal favorites was the Palm tree decoration that I created recently for a woman of Ethiopian heritage who wanted to create the feel of the exit used in the Ethiopian culture.

Even the groom can get involved. An Albanese groom came to me with a box of feathers and asked that they be incorporated into the exit decorations for the bride. My desire as a designer for weddings is to realize the bride and grooms dreams in the prettiest way possible. So here is the brides exit decorations.

The Italian bride usually goes for something more traditional for her culture. This classic design can be used anywhere and in any culture and still be considered chic.

When a bride lives in a private home, I try to incorporate what is already there to create the exit decorations. In this way the bride has decorations while maintaining the feel of her family home.

Just ten more days and the local wedding season begins. Even though many people are cutting back on their spending I have noticed that many brides are spending money on exit decorations. Maybe leaving home has become more symbolic in some way. I will continue to design bridal exits that reflect the culture and personal style of my clients.

Happy Easter and Passover!!
