In Two Little Buds We Trust
Now that the holidays are coming to an end, a lot of brides and grooms start to have more time to focus on wedding planning. And a lot of new happy couples enter the mix that just got engaged, yay! So, welcome to our brides and grooms, old and new! As you either start the process of finding your wedding florist or continue to work with yours to finalize floral plans for your big day, we wanted to share a few of our thoughts on the process.
The best piece of advice we can offer is to remember that after you do your very diligent research to hire the best of the best (which, duh, means you've hired Two Little Buds!), you need to let go a little and let us take care of the rest. Letting go and trusting your wedding vendors will ease stress for everyone involved, and especially where flowers are concerned, will ensure you have gorgeous, lush bouquets and centerpieces. Trust us to do what we do best, which is providing beautiful, seasonal florals for your wedding day that fit your style, venue, and budget. We know it's hard to relinquish some of the control since it is your wedding day, but that is what you're investing in us for-- to be sure the flowers for your wedding day are everything you could have wished, and to ensure you enjoy yourself without worrying about every detail. We've been doing this a long time and, gosh darn it, we're really good at it!
We're not saying that we don't love Pinterest! We absolutely want you to come in with a few inspiration pictures, as that helps us get an idea of the style, color, and types of flowers you like. But the most beautiful things we make come when we then have creative freedom to take the ideas you give us and search for the best and most beautiful blooms that are in season and fit your aesthetic. Flowers that come directly from our awesome little Morning Sun Flower Farm the day we need them are going to look so much better than ones that have been shipped from places like South America over the course of a week! All we're saying is that when we're asked to commit to specific flower types, it can take away some of the design aspect of our job-- and that's what you've hired us for! Instead of expecting a specific bouquet or exact centerpiece, the process will be so much more enjoyable if you're willing to compromise to achieve the look you love. Being unique is a good thing! We simply ask that you're open to new and innovative ideas from us; after all, we want your wedding flowers to be beautiful just as much as you do!
So congrats to all the newly engaged! We'd love to hear from you so we can help you have the wedding flowers of your dreams. And most importantly, we wish our customers, couples, and friends a very happy new year!
