She loves it; she loves it not

Yup, seen it hundreds of times. That wide-eyed wonder of the newly engaged bride, planning her wedding, Pinterest boards clutched tightly in her hands! The excitement. The thrill. The planning (often, years of planning!). The money. Wait……. What? The money? Do I have to think about money?

I sort of have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. I love it because it is an AMAZING resource of images – images that can inspire and motivate! And really solidify what you’ve been trying to verbalize to your friends and family.

But I hate it, because unless you do some digging, you don’t realize that the centerpiece you’ve admired in your dreams is from a Colin Cowie wedding that had a $300,000 floral budget!!
And trust me, I don’t want to be the one to dash those dreams of yours! And it doesn’t have to be that way either.

My advice is this: when you meet with your floral designer, take those wonderful and awe-inspiring pics to your meeting. But also take your floral and décor budget. Any designer worth his or her salt will be able to work with both – the inspiration and the reality! And, if you’re not feeling comfortable with what you’re hearing, come talk to me!!
Tune in next time for some more tips on planning those all-too-important flowers for your wedding.
