A Few of My Favorite Things-Special Items for Your Special Day

I love the fact that this region has so many talented designers, decorators, artists and unique locations. These are all elements that couples can tap into when they want to put their signature on their Essex County wedding. Adding something special to your wedding day can be simply accomplished by adding a few of my favorite things!!

One of this area’s talented jewellery designers Mimi of Mimi’s Creations can customize distinctive accessory pieces commissioned just for you and your wedding party. Her approach is to be inspired by the very uniqueness of nature as nature does not repeat herself. The diversity of each selected component within her jewellery designs specifically made for your wedding day will celebrate the very distinct essence of each special woman, each bride, each bride’s maid and each mother of the bride/groom that wears her designs. A simple dress can be turned into a work of art with Mimi’s fabulous pieces and her jewellery will be relished by those you give it to for years after your wedding day.

L’atelier Du Chocolat a truly divine chocolate boutique located in downtown Windsor can custom make your chocolate edible centerpiece. This creative approach to edible artwork means that a stunning chocolate design can not only serve as your extraordinary center piece but can also be nibbled away by your guests when their late night munchie cravings begin.

Choosing unexpected wedding florals is a beautiful way to customize your wedding decor. Using unpredictable floral choices like artichokes, amethyst coloured cala lillies and wild grasses can create a combination of florals not seen before. Don’t be afraid to choose striking colour combinations of non traditional wedding florals to put your own personal stamp on your bouquets and make them a creation that is unique to your wedding.

Couples are searching for venues that are non traditional and diverse as weddings have become more intimate over the last few years. Outdoor weddings have become standard fair during the pleasant months of the year in Southern Ontario and finding a vineyard, park, backyard or tourist attraction to host your wedding is certainly a trend that only seems to be gaining strength.

A very special new addition to this region’s winery locations is Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards which opened this past summer in the Harrow area. This destination winery has a picturesque setting with its wide open vista of vines on a gentle slope. The addition of ponds to the property enhance wildlife habit and is just part of the “green” approach being taken by Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards. The indoor building can host a small wedding of up to 70 guests and is also the perfect location for wedding showers, engagement parties and rehearsal dinners.

Outdoor venues often mean that couples will need specialty rentals and that is where a long established company like Festival Tent & Party Rentals can be invaluable. Their full smorgasbord of china, utensil, glassware, linen rentals and specialty items make for one stop shopping when you are taking your wedding out of a non traditional setting.
