As a wedding planner not all your brides are going to be super excited brides.....some of my brides have been planning their wedding for so long they've confused themeselves and have no direction at all......then you have a bride like Carol......so daunted by the day this was going to be a chore to her not the most important day of her life......or was it?????
Well yesterday I married Carol and Pambos in our wedding gazebo and it went beautifully (pictures coming soon). When I first met Carol at my office some weeks ago (this was a last minute wedding for me) she was so unexcited about her wedding which is unusual for a bride normally they can hardly contain themselves......I needed to get to the bottom of this!
Carol was incredibly stressed and very daunted about the day ahead and she had absolutely no idea how she wanted her wedding to look.....she had chosen the dress and her colour scheme but that was it.....no vision regarding anything else. My mission was to try and find the kind of a look that Carol would like......we needed to start somewhere so we sat at the computer and I showed Carol lots of pictures (no time for inspiration/mood boards...not on this occasion anyway)!
When I have a situation like this I always start with the bouquet. If I can establish her likes and dislikes in this department....believe it or not I'm almost home and dry. Very quickly it became crystal clear what my bride liked and what she didn't like.... we had colours, we had flowers and we had a style......amazing you see it was in there somewhere!
