Brides and grooms adore Fresh Look Design for their breathtaking décor, ‘above and beyond’ mantra and infectious personalities
Once we saw what wedding designer, Ainsley Poirier, and her team could do, we knew we had to share our love for the beautiful possibilities that come from choosing Fresh Look Design. With an edgy-sophistication, natural, and fresh approach to style and design, FLD’s team of perfectionists deliver events veiled in layers of breathtaking beauty.
From FLD’s philosophy that every couple’s wedding should be unique to their personal style, to a company-wide commitment to bringing fresh, innovative and creative ideas to every single couple they meet, FLD’s popularity is growing with each wedding they help design. Here’s more on this fabulous design guru…
Their fabulous design team
Ainsley, owner and Lead Designer, is the face of Fresh Look Design, “I bring the couples vision to life and make sure that it is followed through by the rest of the team on the day of the special event.” Ainsley is proud that her team has grown over the last decade from a one (wo)man shop to a team of 10. Ainsley’s original vision remains the ultimate goal of FLD today…to surprise their clients with creativity and passion for new and innovative styles- for any event, theme or design.
Her team really is just as passionate about fabulous weddings! “Many individuals put their hearts and souls into the events we create to make your dreams come true, and without the lovely, hardworking event artists at FLD we wouldn’t be where we are today. Although not a family-run business, we genuinely do feel like a family and we hustle hard! Wondering how we do it all? The answer is ALWAYS coffee! As a team of passionate, caffeine-loving, event artists we adore making dreams a reality for our clients and couples.”
For the FLD team, planning and designing weddings is a dream come true, “We love the satisfaction of a job well done. Being able to work with couples to bring their unique personality and vision to life is an experience we never tire of! We have the opportunity to work with many different styles and themes which makes our jobs truly exciting and keeps the creative juices flowing.”
Jeremy Ellis agrees, adding, “I honestly can’t state the calmness I felt moments after Ainsley arrived to set up the hall. I knew she was a professional, not only with her attitude but with the detail she puts into her decorating skills.”
“My favorite memory would be the personal service I felt I received, the quickness in answering any ideas or emails we would send her. The fact that she did a walk through of the hall before the guests arrived, shows the professionalism and dedication to her customers that might be lacking in other businesses.”
One of our favourite things about FLD is their commitment to always bringing in fresh, creative innovative ideas to all of their couples. “We use creativity and innovation to transform any space and we try to see opportunity where many don’t… with the vast amount of inventory and additions of unique pieces we are able to add the key pieces to any space for any theme!”
But it’s also their fun and flexible personalities that has couples raving about FLD. Ainsley told The Ring, “We pride ourselves on the memorable relationships we build with our clients and treat every event as if it were our own. We are a family business and want our clients to feel like they are a part of the family.”
Jill Ross-Melanson used Fresh Look Design for her wedding at The Tannery… “The options were endless, they were able to create everything I was looking for. One of the most talked about things at our wedding was the gorgeous décor, it was simple yet elegant, they knew exactly what I wanted and created it all for our day. They were creative, friendly and easy to work with.”
More Than Just Décor…
Fresh Look Design has become much more than just a décor company. In addition to event design and décor they also offer an ever-expanding line of exceptional rentals empowering their clients to confidently take on DIY wedding décor. They offer everything from tables, benches and chairs to linens, vases, dinnerware/chargers and accessories. You name it, and they will have it!
In addition to their full rental line, they have also branched off into event management including full service planning, month or day of manager and a day of details coordinator PLUS complete wedding floral services.

Pricing and Products
Fresh Look Design offers something for every budget. From simple accents and centerpieces to full décor, the FLD team will work with you to create your dream vision on your wedding day or special event. Items can be rented as individual pieces or as full wedding décor packages.
DIY couples will love that FLD offers several items that you can purchase or rent to complete your own vision. Some of the more popular items available are vases of all shapes and sizes, fabric, linen, and accent pieces. If your wedding is almost entirely DIY, however you do not have the time or desire to do the set up on the day, FLD can take care of the set up for you for a flat fee.
Ainsley adds that, since she uses their inventory sensibly and creatively, she is able to avoid paying large costs and in turn, passes the savings along to each couple. “This helps with the smaller budgets and for the larger budgets, I have great sources to allow for creativity to blend well.”
Groom Jeremy Ellis told The Ring, “We felt the prices were very fair and ended up being exactly what Ainsley quoted! There were even some extras she included that I know didn’t end up on the bill. It was a great day for my wife and I.”
Details, details, details,
- The average bride spends between $2,500-$5,000 with FLD
- HST applies
- To hold your wedding date, FLD asks that couples put down 50% of the overall price at signing of contract. However, they are flexible and willing to work with clients on an individual basis.
