I spent more time perusing websites for floral ideas than I’d like to admit. Each time I thought I found the most beautiful arrangements, a new wedding would be posted with arrangement ideas even more beautiful than the previous. At some point I had to narrow down the selections and get to a florist. I narrowed my choices down to two completely different looks and made an appointment with Debbie of Flowers Etc. I had full faith in her work, as I have been to weddings and showers in the past that she was the florist for.

I arrived for my appointment with pictures of two different floral looks, along with a colorboard I created of the overall look of my wedding. Debbie looked over the two different ideas and immediately turned one down. She simply said, “You don’t want to do this.” Now that was easy! She asked me quite a few questions to get an idea of what type of flowers I liked, as well as finding out my everyday style and the details of my wedding dress. No stone went unturned when it came to learning what I loved. With her inquisitive talent, she was able to discover and incorporate my favorite textile, feathers. I couldn’t have fathomed feathers working in my wedding and now I can’t imagine the wedding without them. I am thrilled! We also discussed options for vases and décor. I would like to use milkglass, but am flexible and will consider other looks. Debbie invited me to go along with her to see all the different options for vases and textiles and I was thrilled. I am definitely a girl that loves to shop!Task number four complete: Flowers and feathers will decorate the venue on my big day, courtesy of Flowers, Etc.With Love,JennP.S. I was watching “Say Yes to the Dress” the other night and can honestly say I am SO thankful the dress in the window of that boutique I drove by in Pasadena was the first and last I tried on. Wow, dress shopping can be a LOT of work!
