Planning a Stress Free Wedding

                       Congratulations you are newly engaged! So many things to do and not sure where to start ?
I personally have worked this through thousands of times. The first thing to do is breath, everything will work out with the right amount of planning and reliable vendors.
                       I first recommend a vision, make a list or story board depicting what you would like for your wedding. Pick colours, a possible theme and overall feel you would like for your day. Sit down and figure out a realistic budget. Do not get so excited that you start spending money on a whole bunch of little wedding items until you do this. You will waste time and money.
                      Pick a date and choose your wedding party order some dresses and check out some tuxes or suits. From here line up your vendors. Do some homework, check on references and reliability of each vendor you are considering for your day. Book your venue, ceremony location, caterer, officiant, photographer, wedding planner, DJ,  decorator, florist and transportation. Remember this is your wedding day do not be talked into anything that doesn't make you feel right.
                     Once your vendors are booked you can plan with each one of them over the course of the next year, months leading up to your wedding day. I realize there is much to do, but lets take steps to making this day flawless. Over the next few weeks I will do my very best to advice you through each stage of planning your perfect wedding. I am always available to answer any questions you may have Happy planning! Enjoy every moment- Lynne Krete

Lately we have been thinking long and hard about what has made Special Events and Flowers so successful?
God is obviously first along with the love and support of our family. We have noticed something else as we begin this 26th year in business, It's creativity.
This family has been abundantly blessed with talent. Over the next years you will see us branch out more as we bring our own designs to this industry. We want to stand out and this has been happening for us more and more.

Tim and Rob have been creating some amazing designs like gobo's, custom signs and accent pieces. Ellie and Lynne have been challenged with very elaborate floral designs. Amy has been fine tuning details through her detailed eye and Adam has been advancing in custom backdrops. All and all we are so excited to just throw caution to the wind and allow our God given creativity to shine.
We are bringing in new fabrics, new linen, rental chairs such as chivaris and ghost chairs, along with all new custom props designed here at Special Events and Flowers. This new year holds a lot of new challenges but we are up for them.
Special Events will continue to be original, honest and dependable. For years we have stated that we are creators of wedding and party atmosphere and we will continue to be so, the one and only original Special Events and Flowers.
