This month’s featured vendor is a florist! Her name is Melissa and she owns Bank of Memories & Flowers in Menomonee Falls and Pewaukee.
Melissa caters to what brides envision. Bank of Memories doesn’t simply provide cookie cutter service. Instead brides meet with the florists and give them colors, themes, personality, and their venue and the staff at Bank of Memories & Flowers will take that and create a beautiful atmosphere for any wedding!
One of my favorite things that Bank of Memories & Flowers provides is event coordinating services which ensures that you have the floral coverage that you need. This means delivering the flowers to the ceremony site, pinning on boutonnieres, taking down the ceremony arrangements and taking them to the reception site and also tear down at the end of the night! How awesome would that be to not have to worry about little details like cleaning up your centerpieces at the end of your reception?
I had the great pleasure of sitting down with Melissa this week to talk about her favorite things, including wedding flowers!
I immediately started with the hard questions:
What is your favorite color?
Green! It’s a very calming yet fun color.
What is your favorite food?
My mom’s enchiladas!
Okay, now that we know some fun facts about you, let’s talk weddings. How early in the wedding process should brides contact you?
As soon as they have their bridesmaids’ dress colors and a sense of what they will like to decorate
What are some of the fun and trendy colors for 2010?
Citrus colors like orange lime green and yellow, red and pink are always popular too
What’s the number one floral arrangement that brides tend to overlook?
Church doors, it really sets the mood and theme of the wedding. They also can be re-used at the reception too. When entering the church, everyone will be inches away from it and start to ohh and ahh!
Do you offer something for every bride, from small weddings to gala events?
Oh yes, every wedding is special, no matter the size!
I visited the Menomonee Falls location, however both locations are unique. The Menomonee Falls location was actually the old bank! In fact, the cooler is where the vault used to be. How fun is that? And the Pewaukee location is going green, and not just because they sell plants! From rain barrels to coffee grinds for fertilizer, the Pewaukee Bank of Memories & Flowers location is doing their part in making the world a greener place.
If you are looking for a florist, I would highly recommend Bank of Memories and Flowers. They can be contacted at 262-253-9111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
