PRESERVE YOUR LOVE WITH ETERNAL ROSE BOUQUETS THAT LAST A FEW YEARS
Yahoo! News - January 19, 2021
Caryn Lim, owner of Timeless Flower Design and a pioneer of the preserved flower business in Montreal has been helping couples capture eternal memories of their love to be cherished for years. With 16 years experience in the wedding industry and 9 years working specifically as a floral designer, Caryn understands the meaning and symbolism behind flowers, and how to elevate the experience through the use of preserved and dried flowers. “I constantly had to throw away fresh flowers after every wedding, flowers that were just sitting pretty for a few hours. It made me sad every time”, lamented Caryn. “I thought to myself ‘What if flowers don’t die? That would be amazing!’”. With a strong drive to reduce the environmental impact of the industry, and hold onto the beauty of these flower arrangements that she would spend hours working on, Caryn pushed to develop the first signature Eternal Rose Bouquet service in Montreal, and has been riding a wave of the growing popularity in preserved flower arrangements.
A CLASSIC AND ELEGANT WEDDING IN OLD MONTREAL
Weddingbells - December 10, 2020
With its historical charm, Auberge Saint-Gabriel sets the tone for this classic and elegant wedding. The couple requested their wedding planner render the stone-clad reception hall more romantic and modern by adding softer elements to the decor. The bride explains her choice: “The room as a whole is old, dark and rustic. To contrast the dark stone walls, we opted for a lighter color palette, with shades of white and pink.”

Mariage Quebec - 24 novembre, 2020
Alors que Julia se décrit comme étant créative et émotive, Philipp est plutôt du type logique et direct. « C’est pourquoi nous avons choisi la combinaison de fleurs ludiques et de motifs géométriques épurés, bien représentés par l’arche choisie pour la cérémonie et les bougeoirs de formes géométriques disposés sur les tables de réception. »

ORGANIC WEDDING INSPIRATION BY THE RIVER
Elegant Wedding Magazine Blog - March 11, 2019
For this natural and organic wedding creative, A Timeless Celebration headed outdoors. White and green florals were paired with gold decor throughout, and to think outside the box for the ceremony, a circular arch was selected alongside slate planters to line the aisle. From the free-flowing ivy along the mantelpiece to the boxed stationery placed atop a bed of moss, we don’t know which decor element is our fav!

ONCE A BRIDESMAID, ALWAYS THE BRIDESMAID… RULES AND ETIQUETTE OF BEING A BRIDESMAID
Bride & Groom Canada Magazine Interview, 2015
It’s an honour to be asked to be a bridesmaid, but what does being a bridesmaid really mean? To be at the bride’s beck and call is only part of the bridesmaid’s prenuptial protocol. Most brides also have certain expectations when it comes to how their bridesmaids will look, including their dress, shoes, hair, makeup, and even accessories. There’s the matter of throwing the bride her customary pre-wedding celebrations, like a bridal shower and stagette, as well as the monetary obligations that come with these events […]

Many find that having their initials embroidered on their runner will add personality to the event, whereas others add their personal style through embroidered embellishments or through colour. Although white or ivory are traditionally used, more and more couples are choosing to have aisle runners in a colour of their choice. For example, couples of Chinese descent often use red.

The five Ds of printing the schedule for your big day. By Lydia Parafianowicz
While ceremony programs might not be necessary for a small beach wedding or quick ceremony at City Hall, it’s nice to keep guests in-the-know and provide them with a glimpse into the day’s events. When creating your program, remember the five Ds to ensure perfection!
From scrolls to panels to single sheets, there are many options available for program designs. “I’ve been getting a lot of orders for program fans with a small ribbon on them,” says Caryn Lim, owner of Montreal-based CLP Invitations (clpinvitations.cceasy.com). Whichever you choose, opt for acid-free paper because it won’t deteriorate in a scrapbook over time.
When it comes to information, not every detail of your big day will be of interest to guests. Sasha Brijmohan of Woodbridge, Ontario’s Pretty Paper recommends printing the names of speakers or someone saying a verse, the parents’ names, or details about parts of the ceremony. Include names of the bride, groom and wedding party, date, place, time, the order of the ceremony (including songs and musical performers) and most importantly, a thank-you to guests and family who have made the day special.
“Keep it nice and short—people don’t need a whole novel. Then they can concentrate on the ceremony,” Lim advises. Novels of information are unnecessary for your program, although don’t let this stop you from preparing an organized schedule of the day’s events.
4. Devise a Plan
Don’t leave printing your programs until the week before the big day. Most companies request your template one or two months in advance, leaving time for any mishaps or complications. Be sure to proofread!
Don’t be afraid to get creative and wow your guests with a cute and clever program. “Some couples have a timeline of the whole wedding day, not just the ceremony. Others have the day in history for fun. And some include short poems, Bible verses, love verses—things to personalize your wedding and make it unique,” Lim explains. As a rule, remember that simple is best (keep embellishments and fancy fonts to a minimum) when creating a memorable keepsake for guests.
