Hi all! It’s been a minute since I’ve had time to check into the blog and let you all know what’s going on. This summer has been AMAZING and full of some of the most enjoyable weddings I’ve been a part of (speaking of which, you can always find sneak peeks of what I’m working on over on Instagram!). I’ve got a lot of awesome posts planned for the coming months on the blog - I just need a little time to actually spend here :)
I wanted to let you all in a little something I’ve been working on - a new consultation method! I have had no problems at all with my previous method BUT I was listening to a podcast the other day and the guest mentioned that she liked to have a little more creative control over her designs. That got me to chatting to with my flower friend/associate designer, Deanna, and that brought about this idea for a new method.
One of the aspects of my job that can be challenging is balancing the inspiration photos I receive from clients with my own creative thoughts and ideas. Sometimes, it’s just really hard to know what the line is between simply copying the inspiration picture and knowing when I can interject with my ideas! I often feel like I can do my very BEST work — coming up with my favourite flower combinations, planning interesting installations, and generally creating something more unique than the inspiration pics that float around on 1 million pinterest boards — when I know that I have creative freedom from the client. So, my new method is designed to incorporate the client’s inspiration while also giving me the opportunity to offer up my creativity better.
For the most part, if you sit down in a consultation with me in the future, you’ll already have shared with me your inspiration and thoughts about colour and style. I’m going to ask for this in advance so that I have time to digest your ideas, and then see where my mind takes me. Then, when we sit down in person, I’ll be able to present you with my ideas for how I would do your wedding. You’ll get a fuller picture of what I’d like to do for you, and rather than simply going down the checklist of the items you need, we’ll be able to talk more about the overall design, and how you want the wedding to FEEL.
I’m really excited about this new method, and I hope that it works as well for you as it does for me!
