Oftentimes a bride does not have a very big window in which to plan her perfect day and Jasmine was no exception. "The wedding planning started the day after our engagement and lasted exactly 9 months. It was certainly busy in that time frame, but we were able to pull it off!"
With hundreds of wedding details to be decided, Jasmine already had some ideas in mind when it came to her bouquets, and Hydrangeas were top of her list, despite her concern for their need for lots of water.
"Janice was very approachable and easy to work with --really helpful and providing advice as to what would work best. She was probably one of the best vendors we dealt with for the entire wedding process. "
Hydrangeas! Hydrangeas are my favorite flower. I just love how round and full they are. Just beautiful. I really wasn't sure about what else, but Janice somehow knew what I wanted and provided a palette of options that really worked for me. I really wanted to work with someone who was well educated on flowers; someone who would sincerely consult with us, as opposed to just trying to sell to us.
We hadn't really decided on a colour theme per se. But since it was a day time/summer wedding we wanted to keep the colours light and fresh. I've always liked bright green, and blue so we tried to incorporate those colours in the flowers."
There were a couple of reasons to have different bouquets for them; mainly to distinguish them as the flower girls as opposed to the bridesmaids. And we chose a smaller bouquet that was more proportionate to their size.
Also, the flowers we chose were more playful looking than the hydrangea and rose arrangements.
And again, it reflected my love of fresh and bright green florals, as Janice then reflected in the table centres."
"For the high style ceremony arrangements, we actually saw these in Janice's portfolio on her website. We really liked the look, and they were a perfect size to fit on top of the pedestals in the chapel."
I found out about Janice because a customer of mine recommended Dutch Mill Flowers. She had partnered with Janice for her wedding. Also, another friend who works at the local University gets arrangements from Dutch Mill for events/graduation. Janice's suggestions were very helpful and we appreciate her helping with our special day."
An Extra Note: "Since we were giving away the centerpiece flowers with the vases, I did purchase the vases from Janice. After the wedding, I think I had 7 vases left, and didn't really have any use for them at home. I mentioned to Janice that I could sell them back to her and she accepted. This was really helpful."
