Being a florist is amazing, we get to create what you see in your mind, and make it come to life.
Being a florist is also very hard work. Hours on end working on your feet, trying to run a business (admin – eek) and managing your personal life in between. Weekends – we don’t have those… but being creative and working with people makes all of this so much fun
During the pandemic, we have openend, closed, moved, worked remotely and then with clients, closed again, open again and and and.. it’s been a struggle, it’s been fun, and it’s been a huge learning curve.
Prices go up and down, sometimes with us knowing and most of the times, we get surprised as well. Availability of flowers are sometimes unknown, and when we think we figured it out, we get to learn something new again.
The questions of why should I hire a florist, or why are you expensive, or why can’t I just do it myself remains in the everyday meetings with potential clients.
The questions why a florist and not a I’m going to do it myself… Girl, don’t ruing your wedding nails, and don’t stress about it. We have been doing this for years and we love to make your day magical. Yes you can do it yourself, but it’s going to work out more expensive anyway. Yes sometimes we are expensive, but that’s because I need about 5 staff members to make your day absolutely amazing! Don’t put yourself in a position where you don’t have time to enjoy getting married.
Sweat the small stuff, like having a secret stash of lipice and Bobby pins, together with a sewing kit just in case. Take selfies and take time with the girls. It flies by so fast!
