Sandra & Chad

This past summer, Wedding Design Studio designed another fabulous wedding at Rowena's Inn on the River. This wedding was photographed by Stec Photography. The weather was perfect and the couple looked amazing. The staff were very friendly. We look forward to the upcoming weddings that we have booked at Rowena's this summer. 

A lovely thank-you note from the bride:

"I was very happy with the design and final set-up - everyone has commented on how beautiful the wedding decor was. I LOVED my flowers as well - my bouquet definitely completed my dress! As well, I was very happy with how organized things were throughout the entire process. 

Take care and thank you again!

Terminal City Winter Wonderland

We created a soft winter themed wedding at Terminal City Club. Candlelight, crystals and a silver canopy set the tone! It was intimate and cozy for our wonderful bride & groom, Leane & Anson and of course, all their guests. A big thank you to Andrea and all the staff at  Terminal City Club and Tala Florist for providing beautiful 'snowballs' of white carnations.  It was also nice to see you Scott of Gary Robertson Music again. He sure knows how to get the party rocking!

Margarita & Johnny

Wedding Design Studio had the pleasure of decorating Margarita and Johnny's wedding at the end of August at Swaneset in Pitt Meadows. This wedding was photographed by Anna & Kasia of Gucio Photography. The wedding design involved a mixture of soft creams and whites, and the entire room was bathed in candlelight. Please enjoy the following photos:

Thank-you, Margarita, for this kind note. You were wonderful to work with!

Dear Karlee & Design Studio Staff,

Johnny and I would like to send a very special thank you for all of your hard work. You and your team made the Swan-E-Set venue look absolutely stunning. It took my breath away at how beautiful everything looked. We wanted something that was simple, elegant and calming and you and your team went above and beyond. All night we received compliments on how gorgeous it looked. Again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

I just want to THANK YOU so very very much for the spectacular decor for our Gala... we were literally blown away.... everyone was blown away. You took our event to the next level, creating this beautiful, warm, sensuous environment-- a perfect vision for our event.

Grouse Mountain Video Shoot

What a treat! Shaw Cable was doing a video shoot for the TV show The Wedding Belles up at Grouse Mountain today. Wedding Design Studio was invited to help out by setting up a table with a natural, winter theme to compliment the beautiful Grouse Mountain.

The sun was shining as we made our way up the tram in the morning. After set up we had time for a sleigh ride in the snow and sun. We also enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Grouse, "THANK YOU Jacqueline!!!"
After lunch, the energetic crew from Shaw Cable arrived and the shoot was done in record time. It was a great, great day!

Don't forget to consider Grouse Mountain for your wedding ceremony and reception in the winter time! Gorgeous!

Wedding Fair 2012

33rd Annual Wedding Fair
January 7th & 8th 2012

Westin Bayshore Hotel


Wedding Design Studio booth from 2011

Come see our new designs for 2012 at the show!


Tips and Tricks for Brides Visiting a Wedding Show
Wedding Design Studio will be at the Westin Bayshore this Saturday and Sunday, January 7th and 8th, for the 33rd Annual Wedding Fair.  We are located on the top floor, right before the fashion show, as soon as you get off the escalator.  Please stop by to say hello, we look forward to meeting you!
Some tips to make your day successful:
1.     Wear comfortable shoes! And leave your winter coat in the car (or use the coat check) you will want your hands free to be able to focus on the show.
2.     Print labels with your name, phone number, email address, and wedding date (size recommend by Wedding Fair 2012 - Avery 5160 - 30 per page or something compatible). Bring a least 5 sheets (150 labels). This will save you a ton of time at the show that can be used talking to knowledgeable vendors! These can be printed at the show, but there is always a long line.
3.     Bring a day planner (or your phone) to book appointments with vendors you meet at the show.
4.     Bring a note pad so you can make notes of your favorite vendors.  You will meet hundreds of vendors, and receive cards/brochures from most of them. Make notes so you can remember which you would like to contact again or check out their website.
5.     You will receive reusable bags at the show, but we recommend bringing two with you (different colors if possible). Give one to whoever you have brought to the show (fiancé, mother, friend or bridesmaids) for the vendor’s cards you are semi interested in, and another that you hold onto for the ones that really peaked your interest.  When you get home it might be hard to remember which photographer you were interested in when you have 10 cards, but if you separate them when you meet them it will make it much easier. for an easier
6.     Check the exhibitor list to plan your day, who would you really like to meet? This is a great opportunity to compare vendors in one location.  Don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions – these are wedding professionals.
7.     Bring a camera.  This is especially important if your fiancé is unable to attend.  But please ask the vendor if you are allowed to take a photo of their booth first.
8.     Have Fun!
Following the wedding show we recommend that you sort through your vendor material as soon as possible. If you take your time many of your preferred vendors might be booked. Remember that dates go very quickly, and many wedding professionals become completely booked within a few weeks following the show for prime dates.

Hope to see you there!
