Have you ever wondered about the people behind your events? There are so many moving pieces and so much dedication required to put together any one event. The Ottawa event industry is so diverse, we wanted to highlight some of the many talented vendors in the region.
The people behind your events…..
Name: Mandy Drew – Wedding consultant
Company: Trillium Floral Designs
Sum up what you do in 5 words: Flowers that exceed your expectations
The one thing you couldn’t live without on event day: organisation & GPS!
One piece of advice for your clients: When it comes to weddings, make it a reflection of yourself and your partner – not the latest on Pinterest. When your wedding is a reflection of you, you will a) feel more comfortable on the day, b) get way more compliments on being unique and c) be more memorable for your guests!
Favorite trend: Lots of greenery! There are so many varieties to choose from that create different textures and shades of green – I just love it!
Favorite event moment (big or small): I was dropping off bouquets to the bride’s hotel suite and the mother of the bride followed me in with a tray of mimosas for the girls. The bride made a joke and her mom laughed so hard that she dropped the tray of mimosas, yet didn’t break a single glass! Everyone was still in good spirits, more mimosas were made and the photographer quickly ran to the bathroom, grabbed a large towel and cleaned it up.
Interesting little known fact about yourself: I had a gothed out wedding with skull wedding favours, studs on my bouquet and black in my dress! (…but don’t worry, I don’t push that style on my clients!)
