Teri & Frank - Hilton Waikoloa Village
This morning I finished Teri & Frank's favors for their upcoming wedding at the Hilton Waikoloa Village & Resort. Teri came to DK Designs by way of the wonderful wedding atelier staff at the Hilton. Teri wanted save-the-dates, invitations and favors. This is a style sheet of all the components (or most of them anyway) to give you an idea of what we did for her wedding. Her colors were a turquoise and hot pink. So we went with a hibiscus design since she is getting married after all in Hawaii. We did some scroll work as well whcih worked out nicely.

For Teri's favors, she was so torn on what flower to do. I told her you can do different flowers for the male and female guests as I've had several clients ask for one particular flower for the female guests and maybe a pineapple or a turtle for the male guests. I think these days, anything goes, as long as it's done well! :) So since her wedding was quite small, we went for flowers in whites and pinks (gardenia, cymbidium orchid, hibiscus, plumeria) and for the guys a mixture of pineapples and wooden turtle with mini plumerias and leaves). The ribbons are a light teal organza and rasberry pink silk ribbon and we tied her wedding invitation motif back in with her favor tags to finish them off. So you can see that carrying the theme through from your save-the-dates all the way to your favors truly makes the event unique and all your own. I've had so many clients tell me how much their guests were excited when they received the invitation and to see all the other pieces with the same motif really helped make the event that much more special.

Well, back to my other orders... I hope you like what you see..
