We can hardly believe it has almost been a month since we have blogged. Bad. Bad. Bad! Neither of us know where the time has gone. Luckily for me (since it’s my turn to blog, and I guess I’m the one holding up the show!)- we received a request from a new inquiry asking for some letters of reference, since she has a large order and was a bit worried about the whole ‘on-line’ ordering process.

Carrie sent out some emails to our past brides – and we are sooo happy to report that we got some fabulous letters back! This really is why we LOVE Emplume so much! Of course we love the bouquets but I think we may love our brides, their mother-in-laws and moms even more! THANK YOU.THANK YOU. THANK YOU! to all of you who so thoughtfully replied to our request – we could not be happier!

I am of course going to post them for all of you to see.. but so as not to overwhelm and to give every gorgeous one of you your day to shine with our complete gratitude and thanks… here’s the first!

Dear Carrie and Shannon:

It was so good to hear from you.   As you know, when my daughter-in-law Stephanie saw your advertisement in Bride’s Magazine and contacted you by telephone.   I was skeptical about handling such an important part of the wedding over the internet without being able to see and/or touch the product.  You will recall we had a bad experience with another company who apparently was trying to do a knock-off of your creations of art.

I can honestly say we were like 5 year old children on Christmas morning opening the packages when they arrived for the wedding.  The packaging was fantastic.  I have my husband’s boutonniere and my corsage packed away neatly in the beautiful boxes they arrived in and have stored them in our wedding memory box.

The bride’s bouquet was stunning.    Stephanie chose a beautiful arrangement to carry and equally beautiful combinations for the maid of honor and bridesmaids.   Your creations were unique to our area and needless to say were a topic of conversation among our guests.  I purchased glass vases for the bouquets and they were displayed at the reception around the cake and Stephanie’s was standing on the sweetheart table.

I have never seen anything like these arrangements. The Swarovski crystals and pearls were a magnificent touch and added just the right amount of sparkle.  The magnetic clasps on them were a fantastic idea so as to not damage the fabric of the dresses/tuxedos.

I would absolutely, positively recommend your creations to anyone who is considering them as an alternative to traditional fresh flowers.  They are unique works of art and certainly deserve the consideration by any bride who wants something unusual and one of a kind for her special day. Hope your business is flourishing and you can rest assured that anyone who has asked where they came from I have quickly provided your information.

Talk care and we wish you much success!
