The Blog - Tips and inspiration to help you plan your wedding with less stress
I made the unconscious decision to do what I'm doing now around November last year. It only became a conscious decision two weeks ago though because, like all the other times I've had to make hard decisions, I panicked, doubted myself, questioned everything and tried to justify every reason not to do what I knew I had to. It was time to let something go.
Wedding planning is hard enough. Throw in some well meaning family members who try to help by pushing their ideas on you and you're done for.
Now, not all family members and friends are like this, of course; I'm talking about the ones that complain about the date you've chosen or the venue being too far away. The ones who try to dictate which flowers you have or tell you that it'll be embarrassing when nobody eats the food as what you've chosen isn't traditional (we had that one!).
"What's you're biggest weakness?" the person interviewing me would ask. "I'm a perfectionist" came my reply. Let's face it, it's the text book answer to a question like that.
I never really thought about it; I was always dedicated to my work in teaching, put so much time and effort into planning and making resources that the kids would love and respond to and then continued that level of diligence with my work now.
But it's soul destroying. Exhausting too...I've watched my shiny perfectionist badge tarnish as I've realised that the level of perfectionism I've held in my work has massively crept in to (or perhaps has always been a part of) every day life.
I shared a tip on Facebook earlier this week about how a hair vine could be your ideal hair accessory if you haven't finalised your wedding hair. As one of my most popular posts is about the ways you can wear your hair vine, I thought I'd share a few alternatives for you that don't involve putting them in your hair. Intrigued? Read on, friend!
Creating your own brooch bouquet can be a lovely project for your wedding and these days, there are so many options for brides who have decided to design their own. You can find tutorials online, order kits or take a workshop but one thing is for sure; your bouquet will make you smile for years to come because you made it yourself.
I created brooch bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids and, while I loved my bouquet for its sentimental details, I had little experience then. I've designed a fair few over the years and have picked up new techniques as a result, so I thought I'd share with you a few things that I've learned to help you create your own.
If you've read my earlier post about my workshops, you'll know that I've recently introduced Brooch Bouquet workshops. What about if you don't need a full workshop though? What if you've got most of it covered, there's just one annoying bit that won't work, or you're struggling to make the handle look presentable?
Well, my friend, that's where my Brooch Bouquet Surgery comes in!
The concept of the Brooch Bouquet Surgery is this: Come along with your ailments and I'll give you a prescription to fix it ;) That is, of course, you bring your bouquet along in whatever state it's in and I'll help you to fix it.
