And the WINNERS are……

This past Sunday we were part of The Bridal Showplace’s bridal fair at the Hyatt in Huntington Beach. We had a blast and met SO many great Brides and their families and friends! We ran a couple of contest and the winners are below!

How we picked the winners: after counting all the entries I mixed them all up and restacked them. Then Karen (my lovely assistant) picked a number 1 through the total number of entries and I counted from the bottom till I reached that number. WA LA, we have a winner! And thank that you to EVERYBODY who voted!!

First we offered Brides that signed up for a consultation a change to win a $500 gift certificate good for flowers for ANY occasion (and of course it can be used for the wedding if they desire) from us! The winner is Susan E. who is getting married on 5/19/12 with purple and champagne as her color theme. Sounds BEAUTIFUL with the vintage feel and using hydrangea…

Next we have the favorite bridal bouquet contest…… There were six bouquets to pick up and play with on the table. We encouraged brides, grooms, bridesmaids, mothers and everybody else in the area to vote for their favorite for a change to win a $250 gift certificate good for flowers for any occasion from us! We had almost a 100 people vote! There were mainly brides that voted but we had a few Grooms and Dads in the mix as well (which I LOVE that the guys had fun with it as well!!) and of course a decent amount of Moms and Bridesmaids! The winner was Karine B. who is the getting married on 7/7/12! Her favorite bridal bouquet was the earthy feeling green, gray and white bouquet pictured below.

The race for which bouquet was the favorite was a close one! There 1st and 2nd place bouquets were only 3 votes apart! BUT the winning bouquet was the all rose bouquet with magnolia leaf collar and a few accents of braided grass.  This bouquet even had a great fragrance!

I have to share the CLOSE 2nd place bouquet was the bright summer inspired clutch bouquet with two colors of lilies, hydrangea, roses and dahlias. The bride colors seemed to be a big draw and also seem to be a very popular choice for upcoming weddings.

We would also like to announce that we will be featuring weddings the entire month of October! This is a great way to get inspiration for real weddings, color themes and find accompanying pieces for MANY places! Be sure to check it out for inspiration…
