It's in the title, since leaving Clawson Lodge as the Events Manager at the end of September,time has moved more slowly for me (and it needs to at my age), it's given me the opportunity to validate how much I enjoy my own business working with brides and grooms, how much enjoyment I get out of it. Meeting a couple for the first time, listening to what they have to say about their venue, colours, wedding scheme and style. I have heard it so many times from the grooms " I'm happy if she's happy", with the bride saying " I wish he would have more of a input", it's meant to be OUR wedding . Dressing our table in the colour sashes which the bride and groom has chosen, knowing that they feel reassured of what their wedding reception tables will look like. I know a lot of couples find it hard to visualize everything they have chosen for their special day and I can understand why, they have samples of fabric colour coming out of their ears, the bridesmaids dresses will be this colour the men's suits will be this colour, the colour of the flowers will be this colour, it goes on and on, but with the help of myself, I show them how we put all the details and wishes together.
I have spent the last few weeks updating my website and learning how to do instagram with guidance from my daughter Emily. It's been a busy time with all the dressings we have had, with Baby blue, Baby Pink, Red, Burnt Orange, Mocha, Peach, Silver and we still have more to come.
I have also missed doing the wedding fairs this year, hopefully next year I will have the time and opportunity to exhibit at some lovely venues to meet new brides & grooms, I also hope to do regular open days at the showroom with Emily from Em'z Flower Boutique, once we have had a bit of a clear up and a redesign of the layout. I keep saying to her, we just have to much stuff, it's hard fitting a pint in to a half pint pot, but we do eventually manage it.
Autumn is here and our busy wedding season is coming to a end, I have a few more dressings to do for October and November, giving me December a month to relax and get ready for Christmas, I always say to brides and grooms have December off, no discussing weddings, to start again in January go and enjoy Christmas and spend it with family and friends.
