This is the time of year when I have the opportunity to meet with couples who are planning their Weddings. It is an exciting time and there is so much to do. I decided to do a few posts about consultations that you may find interesting and helpful. I think one of the first questions I am asked is, "How soon do I make an appointment to come and talk to you?" I like to answer that one with a few questions of my own.
When you begin your planning there are some very important things to have done before you talk to your floral designer.
Here is my list of what items should be done before we meet:
Your Wedding Date Selected
Your Ceremony & Reception Site Reserved
Your Dress and the colors you plan to use
These are the building blocks that a floral designer needs to begin to create your wedding flowers. When you have the above items confirmed and purchased, then it is time to come and talk to me. There is also a lot of benefits to retaining the vendors you want to use especially when you plan to get married in the popular months of May & June.
The next question I am asked is 'Do you offer Flower Packages?'
Weddings are such an important event and I believe that each one should be treated on a personal level so that the floral designs created will be a mirror image of the couple who plan to celebrate one of the most important events in their lives with family and friends. When you begin one of life's grandest journeys allow the flowers to tell 'your love story'.
Well stay tuned for the next episode of Bridal Consultations and if you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you.

- I have always been a 'dreamer' and I think that is the most important quality a person can have in order to be creative. It allows me to view things from all sorts of angles. Whenever I would design for a wedding/special event I made myself 'think like a photographer' and in my mind's eye I wanted to be able to showcase various colors, elements & textures. At the end of 2012 I closed the doors to my Floral Studio and began pursuing new horizons. Flowers and plants have been a part of my life since I was a child and helped my Dad in the garden. Seeds have always fascinated me and one day I will share my 'Lesson Of the Bean' story with you! My other passion is creating beautiful food to share with family and friends -- I have always said that food and flowers go together. For now, I would like this Blog to be a collection of Pretty things that this Dreamer would like to share with all of you!
