Flower Girl Ideas

Posted in Uncategorized on April 25th, 2013 by Jenna

In the wedding ceremony, your flower girl precedes you, the Bride down the aisle. She helps to make your entrance even more grand.  Yes, you could go to Michaels and purchase a common white satin basket and add some silk petals to it.  Or…. here are some more creative ideas from Fleurtations Floral to think about!

A beautiful and delicate fresh flower “fairy wand” with trailing ribbons.

Some adorable mossy, twiggy baskets

A fabulous floral “halo” for her head!

A pomander ball in your theme!

An ultra-feminine mini-bouquet

 

Make an appointment to discuss these and many more fun ideas with Fleurtations.   Creative wedding design is our passion!

 

 

Destination Wedding on a Mountain Top!

Posted in Uncategorized on April 15th, 2013 by Jenna

Its hard to believe we have a venue with these stunning views this close to Coeur d’Alene! 

The greater Coeur d’Alene area is a popular destination wedding location and I work with a high percentage of  clients planning long distance.

This gorgeous wedding was a true destination wedding. I consulted with the Bride, Katy, entirely over the phone and e-mail. She was living in Texas and fell in love with North Idaho while here on a vacation several years ago and had always dreamed of getting  married here!

 E-mail and Pinterest make it super easy to bounce ideas back and forth but I also loved that this Bride preferred to send me a envelope crammed full of magazine clippings via snail mail!  That works too!

  The entire wedding party and all their guests flew in from the Lone Star state to soak in the Idaho mountains.

Katy  loved the “Anthropologie” look  combined with a little rusticity to tie in the outdoors for the overall style of her wedding.

I used flowers such as hanging pepper berry, bunny tails, cabbage roses, scabiosa pods and amaranthus!

 

It was a clear blue sky August day with incredible lake views.

 

Here is what the Bride had to say about Fleurtations Floral in a review following her wedding day.

Jenna from Fleurtations Floral did a spectacular job. The flowers were so unique and beyond my imagination that when I walked into my reception room they blew me away. Everyone commented on how delicate and divine they looked. Her floral artwork doesn’t look like normal flowers you’d pick up from any florist. You can tell that she has a vast knowledge of flowers, colors, decor, and style. She took all of my ideas and melted them together to create a vision that was better than I had envisioned. She was easy and wonderful to work with too.”

The Best Day of My Life!

Yes, It IS True!

Posted in Uncategorized on March 1st, 2011 by Jenna

Many of you have heard the rumor……and yes, it’s true……..I’m getting married this spring.  Naturally, the first question people ask is “are you doing your own flowers?”    Absolutely!    It’s my thing.    Being a wedding floral designer, I am a little “Bridezilla-ish” about how I want my flowers.   =)  I will be sure to post pictures of my wedding afterwards in case you are all curious to see what I come up with!

It was an extremely hard decision to choose some of my vendors because I know soooo many exceptional people in the industry.  Very agonizing! 

I chose Dave and Kirstin Ridgewell of Dreamlight Photography www.dreamlightphoto.com.  They are a young and trendy, husband and wife team from Hayden, Idaho.  They have such a great reputation that they book up every year just by word of mouth….no advertising at all!    They did a fabulous job on our engagement shoot and I can’t wait to see the wedding photos!

My dress has been ordered from the wonderful, Sarah Hedlund, of Rianne’s Bridal www.riannesbridal.com.  We are custom designing a dress (her specialty) to be exactly what I dreamed of.  I have been treated like a queen and been well taken care of during all my visits to her shop.  Sarah has inpeccable taste and knowledge of fashion.  I am really excited to see my dress!

Val Mesinbrink, of All About You Weddings and Events (208) 660-9384 will be coordinating my wedding for the rehearsal and the day of.  Her office is also located inside Riannes Bridal.  She is warm and personable and super organized!   It will be such a stress reliever to have her handle the details on the day of the wedding.

The rest of the details are still being planned at this point but I will be sure to post pics of the big day events!

This fall, I had the priviledge of doing the flowers for the wedding of the lovely Sarah Hedlund, owner of “Riannes Bridal” in Hayden.    She was so fun to work with and although she knew what she didn’t want, she did give me lots of room to use my designer eye.

The wedding was held at a large estate on the Spokane River.  The theme for the reception was a 50′s diner style with juke boxes, old thunderbirds, and chrome bar stools.   It was fabulous!!!

Here are some kind words that Sarah offered about my work following her wedding.  Thank you Sarah!
“When I got engaged, there was only one option for me when it came to
picking out a florist. I own a local bridal shop, and have been
recommending Fleurtation’s Floral to my brides exclusively since I
opened. Jenna has always gone above and beyond for my clients and each
one of them rants and raves about her from their very first appointment
meeting her. I am so thrilled that it is my turn to rant and rave about
Jenna. From the initial consultation, it was clear that my ideas for my
flowers were far from traditional. That being said, all I did was
explain to Jenna, the theme of the wedding and my want for something
unique, and she did the rest! It was such a stress reliever to trust
Jenna enough to let her make the detailed decisions on my flowers and
know that whatever she came up with would be brilliant. Well…I showed
up on the day of my wedding, and the flowers and the creativity was way
beyond anything I could have imagined. I am beyond thrilled with Jenna’s
work and will continue to recommend her EXCLUSIVELY to every one of my
clients!

Thanks for such a wonderful experience!”

Princess Wedding

Since childhood, this Bride had envisioned a very feminine “princess wedding”……….

She LOVED pink!

Though pink, the boutonnieres were still simple and masculine!

LOVE PINK!

The flower girls each carried “fairy princess” wands of nerine lilies rather than a basket with petals….

Of course!

Something Old

Posted in Uncategorized on September 24th, 2009 by Jenna

I suggest to Brides that they bring me something “old and of sentimental value” to incorporate into their bouquet.  Here are a few examples.

The Bride (above) brought me some of the vintage ribbon from her mother’s bridal bouquet.  It was a pink satin acetate ribbon that had a few crinkles in it but nevertheless, sentimental.  She did not care how it was used in the bouquet, just so it was in there somewhere for “something old”.   So, I used it at the base of the handle  as an accent color peeking out from behind the  pearl trim.

This Bride brought a beautiful gold cross that was given to her by her fiance when they first started dating.  It was a fabulous addition to her bouquet.

If you look closely at this handle you can see a lace flower.  This was part of the Bride’s mother’s wedding dress.  Yes, we cut the wedding dress!  The Bride brought me her mother’s dress because she was too afraid to make the first cut.  So, I did the deed!  I used different parts of the lace and trim on the handles of all her wedding bouquets.  It added a very sweet and nostalgic touch.
