It's a new year and with that comes many new engagement rings and wedding planning. Fun and happy times and I'm excited to help all of you that are planning your dream wedding!
One of the first orders for the year included a new color combination and I'm loving it! Blush pink, sage green, grey, and cream colored burlap roses, an assortment of lace in white, blush and ivory, along with silk heather, and dangling foliage. Sara contacted me through Instagram and we were able to discuss her wedding through direct messages. Her color request is soft, pastel, and so pretty together! Due to her Scottish family ties, she ask if some Heather could be included in the bridal bouquet and I was able to find some for her!
I was curious and had to google to find out the Heather / Scotland ties. I found this story, along with some other info about the flower at this website.
'although it is the symbol of my sorrow, may the white heather bring good fortune to all who find it.'
Even today, white Heather is considered to be lucky, especially for brides, and adding a spray of it to your bouquet, on table decorations and so on is popular.
I was able to send her short videos showing her completed bouquets. This was a new way for me to show more details and connect with the bride-to-be.
I sent progress pictures, before adding the Heather and dangling foliage to the bridal bouquet, to make sure all the colors were like she wanted.
Once she approved of the design on the bridesmaid bouquets and boutonnieres, I completed the remaining items and sent another short video of everything completed, for approval, before shipping.
With the fabric bouquets that are made to order, you have final approval, before shipping. This way, you know exactly what you are getting. If any changes need to be made, they can be made for you without having return postage, etc. Happy brides make me happy and honestly there have been only a few times that someone has requested a change.
I'm looking forward to helping all of you who are wedding planning this year! Please let me know how I can help you!
