I was listening to the radio coming in to work today and heard a great comment that inspired this blog. "There are multiple right answers". It didn't really apply to the flower business specifically but after seeing this bridal bouquet being created today, it made me think how often folks think that there is a right or wrong answer when choosing flowers. Whether it's a wedding or other event, there are many choices and multiple right choices.
Take this bouquet for example. The bride is truly a free spirit and allowed her friend (our designer Alanna) to create her bouquet. Kate loves everything natural (she's a Vegan who runs a rescue farm for animals) and is wearing a Chakra Crown to her wedding. Imagine her delight when she sees that Alanna has added healing stone and crystals to her bouquet? Is this right for everyone? Would Kate love this bouquet if it did not have the stones? I think we know the answer but how awesome is that she trusts her friend to create the perfect bouquet, knowing that Alanna would dare to create a bouquet as unique as the bride.
This leads me to the "Dare to Be Different". Are you dictating every element of your wedding? Are you allowing the professionals you hire to help you create a unique wedding or just a copy of something you saw on Pinterest. Ah, food for thought perhaps but why not think let the creativity out of the bag. Why not set the trend instead of following it. Why not work elements into you wedding that are not only timeless but also personal to you? It doesn't apply to everything in life, but flowers are certainly one decision that does not have "One Right Answer". Happy Wedding Planning!
