Planning a wedding is a journey that most brides-to-be’s have been dreaming about and begin years and years in advance. Unfortunately, I was not one of those eager brides that had her colours, venue, or even dress picked out well in advance. Once I got engaged a year and a half ago I realized the clock was not my friend and remembered the sheer panic of pulling everything together for our big day.

Working with vendors in Canmore when I lived in Edmonton and managing our bridal party that was entirely in another province was no easy feat. I quickly learned I needed to partner with vendors that not only knew what they were doing but truly had my best interest at heart.

A really great example and one of my absolute favourite vendors was Creative Décor Events. I met Kim after a frustrating interaction with another vendor who kept changing the pricing every time we spoke for a Bollywood themed wedding backdrop. I decided to search for another option and stumbled upon Creative Décor Events online out of Calgary. I contacted Kim and she was not only incredibly reasonably priced but her personality instantly made me feel like I was going to be in great hands. Kim did more than provide me amazing décor for my wedding she became my personal planner and I felt comfortable asking her all my wedding needs. She hooked me up with a make-up artist and helped me find a videographer within my budget! She was very conscious of my budget and had amazing tips to help me stay within it.  She came up to Edmonton even to meet me and my fiancé at the time and even after the wedding offered to meet me in Edmonton and deliver items I accidentally forgot.  She even went above and beyond providing me with items I couldn’t afford for my wedding just because she was that awesome!

My husband and I are truly indebted to Kim for her efforts and had no problem letting the hotel and guests know who she was when they were amazed by our décor! Check out some of our photos and her amazing work below!fb_img_1476410776811fb_img_1476410932400fb_img_1476410942845anna_2anna_1anna_5anna_4anna_dance



Nestled in between Red Deer and Edmonton lies a little charming town called Bentley. Our special couple, Lola and Chad, decided to tie the knot in front of close friends and families in the Woody Nook Christian Reformed Church, with the evening reception in the Blindman Valley Agricultural Centre.

Creative Décor Events was chosen to provide the decoration, and transformed the hall to make this special moment more glamorous.

In touch with the overall theme, we decided to add a fresh spin to our décor by incorporating diamond crystals to our backdrops. They accentuated decorative details providing a gorgeous and elegant finish.

When the decoration was completed, the couple’s friends and families were amazed and pleasantly surprised by the hall transformation.


Every couple wants to plan an unforgettable wedding. That’s exactly what Alex and Mey got on their special day. Their wedding was pretty much one giant family contribution. From the invitations and decor to the food and entertainment, we personalized as much as we could. It was a 2 days wedding and family affair.

Friday was the day the bride and the groom donned traditional Cambodian and Chinese outfits during the tea ceremony. To incorporate their theme we created a beautiful backdrop using blush pink and champagne color valance wrapped in hand sewn flowers.

The next morning the intimate ceremony was held at the Carriage House Inn. Closed family and friends were invited to witness the couple “I Dos”. The ceremony venue was beautifully decorated with backdrop, silk flower balls, aisle runner, entrance flowers and most importantly their little wedding parties, three cute flower girls.

At Regency Palace, for the evening reception we customized our decor to accommodate live band, with the emphasis on the couple’s head table as the focal point. The bride and groom are lucky to have an amazing family and friends to help them decorate and create this unforgettable pictured perfect wedding.

A very lucky wife got the surprise of her life when she discovered that her husband had hired CDE to creatively put together birthday décor for her special day. To keep the decorations simple yet elegant, we incorporated lilac and black colors on white damask accented with roses and hydrangeas. The venue was done at his wife favorite Chinese restaurant, Cheung’s Kitchen.




This wedding was infused with modern touches and bold colours. The colourful palette of red and white accented with black details created magic in the venue room.  With a little bit of romanticism in mind we transformed the Calgary Zoo venue from daytime wilderness to evening glamour with string of waterfall lights accenting the main couple’s table. The décor maintained the elegant look with red roses grouped in square vases atop the centerpiece mirror surrounded by rose petals and tea lit candles. Each table was enhanced with white lace to maintain the theme’s elements. Chairs graced in black covers and wrapped with red sashes provided the needed contrast to give this wedding an edgy look. This wedding glamour was captured by Debbie Wong Photography.

One week after their inspired Morocco theme engagement, we created another unforgettable theme for Steve and Sonia’s wedding that highlights the bride’s glamorous personality. With strings of crystal hanging from the elegant LED backdrop and beaded votive glass show casing the couple’s rosette sweetheart table, this decor certainly were taking a page from old Hollywood “The Great Gatsby”. We combined pearls, crystals, grey, light pink and white to create a stunning and chic wedding.


Slightly behind blogging but better be late then never. Inspired by Morocco theme this engagement kicked off with authentic and custom detail, including lanterns that sitting in rose petals matched the colors of the celebration.

One of our creative design elements was the spectacular stage in the center of the Polish room that featured array of bold colors of Morocco on a massive LED backdrop and brought everyone’s attention to the happy couple.

Happy Valentine’s Day and hope everyone enjoyed the Family Day long weekend. This weekend of love was eventful for us. We were able to successfully decorate for two beautiful events. An engagement  party of 250  people for a young couple and a small intimate wedding.

We were fortunate enough to have Debbie Wong Photography take some beautiful pics for our portfolio!!
