Great Finds: DK Designs

One day I was reading on the Wedding Bee Miss Pineapple's post on non-floral wedding bouquet alternatives. Suddenly my mind flashes as it rewind to the day after my wedding. I said to my hubby "Wouldn't it be nice if I can preserve the way it looks right now?" and "I wish I would pay a little extra for more cymbidiums." Fast forward to several months after and back to reading the post a light bulb went off in my head. I wanted contact Diane of DK Designs to inquire the possibility of replicating my bouquet with the added cymbidiums.

I checked out their website prior to contacting them(www.dkdesignshawaii.com). There was something vaguely familiar. Then I browsed the work on the gallery and instantly remember. This site was shown to me over a year ago when one of my own bridesmaids Mel used her for her Big Island of Hawaii wedding. She had DK Designs made the flower girl lei and wedding favor detail. The results were really beautiful and I was in awed. I wished she did the bridesmaids bouquet in clay so we can take those bad babies home (a bouquet of cymbdiums yummy!).

So I contacted Diane of DK Designs because Mel had nothing but positive praises. Mel's feedbacks on vendors are as good as gold (she's a big yelper). Mel was right! Diane was a great pleasure to work with. She was very patient, detailed, and quick. After my quote and several emails back and forth I was sold. I didn't realize how quickly I would receive it. It was everything I had asked for and more. Thank you Diane!
