At Bridal Beginnings we have a passion for hearing people’s stories, dreams and ideas, then turning them into reality. Through colour, texture, design and scent we can transform an event. Each occasion is uniquely designed to express the client’s personality and vision. This is what we love – helping someone realize their dream so they can cherish the memories forever.

Bridal Beginnings strives to be a socially responsible company. We source local flowers and support growers close to home. We take pride in recycling and being sustainable in our business practices. Being environmentally friendly can also help your wallet! We rent vases and other décor so you don’t have to buy it.

Bridal Beginnings owner, Larissa, has been in the industry for over 16 years. She has worked hard to maintain a reputation of quality and professionalism.?Larissa’s favourite part of the job is having someone come to her after the event and say, “this is more than I could have ever hoped for!” Larissa loves what she does and that shows in her work.

FAQ & Investment

· What events do you do? ?Bridal Beginnings does the flowers and design for weddings and other special events, large and small. We also do tasteful bereavement designs.

· What elements of design do you use? ?We like to incorporate elements like table accessories, specialty linens, fabric treatments, lighting, candles and vintage/rustic props. We want to give your event a personal style, make it you! We work hard to understand your vision and have the event be truly memorable for you and your guests.

· How much do your services cost?? We offer one-of-a-kind events so pricing varies depending on the flower and design choices you make.

· So how do we start? ?Call or email us 6-12 months before your wedding day so we can set up a consultation. If your wedding day is sooner, don’t worry, we can still meet to chat about your ideas. The consultation will take around an hour.

· What should I bring to the consultation? ?Come armed with your wedding ideas! Bring pictures that inspire you. You can find pictures in magazines, books and on the Internet. If you have them, bring fabric swatches or pictures of the Bride and Bridesmaid dresses. Pinterest is an amazing resource for brides-to-be. We suggest you make a ‘wedding’ board and send us the link.

· Who should I bring to the consultation? ?Come with your fiancé, friend or family member. You want someone there who will be helpful and supportive.

· What happens during the consultation?? This is when we get to learn about you and your ideas. Whether you have an exact plan or are feeling a little lost, we’ll help guide you. Often we will bring out our various portfolios to see if anything grabs your attention. Once we have a clear vision of what you want for the day, we get to start picking flowers and designs.

· When do I get a quote? ?Once we have gone through everything you are looking for, we will step aside for a few minutes while we put your quote together. Then if needed, we can make any alterations right then. I’ll hold your wedding day open for 2 weeks, that way you have plenty of time to think it over.

· Can you work with a specific budget? ?Yes! Let us know what your budget is and we’ll make choices accordingly. If you can’t afford a specific option we will help find something that gives you the same feel but for a more affordable price.

· What next? ?After paying your retainer we will email you a copy of the receipt and a detailed outline of all the flower and design choices you made. Check it over carefully because how it’s written is exactly what you’ll get.

· I’ve changed my mind! Can you help? ?Of course, that’s what we’re here for. We can make adjustments as your wedding plans progress. Also, we’ll get in contact one month before your wedding to see if there are any final adjustments to your order. Then we’ll confirm the delivery timeline as well.

· When do I pay?? The balance for our services is due 2 weeks prior to your wedding date.

· Can I see my flowers beforehand?? You most definitely can. We will email/text you pictures as everything’s being put together. We will also invite you to our design studio a few days before the wedding for the opportunity to "try on" your wedding bouquet .You can pick it up, hold it, feel it and make sure it’s perfect for you!

Any other advice?? Get excited! When you choose Bridal Beginnings you can relax and know that your dream will become reality. We like to take the stress away so you can enjoy the process Read less

Larissa was so amazing to work with, she was so kind in all the emails we had and totally saw my vision. I only met with her once months before our big day and kept in touch through email. I completely trusted her and when I saw a preview of my bouquet the day before, I knew the flowers would be wonderful throughout the venue! Everything was perfect, the bouquets were amazing, the table arrangements were gorgeous, I couldn't have asked for more!

Communication was very poor with this vendor. After the initial consultation I had a very difficult time getting a hold of her. I ended up having to return decor items en route to my honeymoon because she failed to answer calls/messages by my family member who was trying to return the items for me. She also changed the delivery time for my flowers days before the wedding, delivering them almost 3 hours early during the hottest day of the summer... not good

Larissa did an outstanding job on our wedding flowers! I had a very specific vision in mind and she worked with me every step of the way to make sure they fit our budget an theme. She was very accommodating to changes and not only did she send me pictures of flowers she was thinking of using for me to ok, she even lets brides come take a peak at the work in progress or will text you a pic for feedback. Would definitely use her for events in the future and highly recommend :)

Incredible! We had trouble finding someone who did both flowers AND decor. Larissa does it all, and with such passion.
It is so easy to work with someone who loves what they do as much as Larissa does!
She always answered our questions within 24 hours, and even when we decided to slightly tweak our wedding colors last minute, this was no challenge! She made the changes immediately!
My husband and I will never forgot that feeling when we walked into the venue for the first time. Our jaws dropped in awe! It looked absolutely beautiful and we are so overjoyed with how everything turned out. We still get comments from guests at how spectacular the venue looked.
THANK YOU Larissa and Bridal Beginnings =)

We opted for the simple and less is more idea.
We had a white base color for decor and red and black accents. I was able to incorporate my own touches and Larissa hung/put it out. I also like that they put it up and teared it down. Wedding days are hectic you are pulled in every direction.
Our head table was beautiful.
The bouquets were put together better than I ever imagined in my mind!
Larissa is to the point and totally gets what budget means and she navigates quickly with and around those things!

If you want someone who's laid back and has done this before with the expertise and professionalism. Choose Larissa!

My husband and I are still so thrilled over how well is looked on such a small budget we had set out.

Thank you Larissa!!!!!
