Stress. Expensive. Decisions.
Are you planning a wedding? The thought of planning a wedding can make someone curl up in a ball in the corner. I wrote previously about the need for help. Experienced help.
And then I met with a couple that had a light in their eyes about planning their wedding. They live in Los Angeles; wedding in Charleston (I am heading to the corner). Together, they had a refreshing attitude about planning their wedding. They would make “planning trips.” Explore Charleston. Eat well. Visit with friends. Oh, and plan a wedding.
When they came in the shop, there was excitement. They wanted to enjoy the madness. They wanted it to have meaning. It wasn’t just what they did. It was how they did it. They compromised. Compromise isn’t even the right word. It’s too negative. You could see it in their eyes, their smiles. They wanted their partner in life to be happy. It was compassion. It was love.
Your wedding is YOUR day. You have been planning this your whole life. So has your mother.
My sister, but mostly my mother, is currently planning their wedding in Charleston. (Mom, this is said with love.) Don’t let your mother take over, but please, let her help.
This is also coming from someone that just met a lady that planned and executed every detail of her wedding. If the planning of, and day of, your wedding feels like work, you will wish you had enjoyed it more.
Let someone help. Planners, friends, mothers; let someone help. Just make sure you are getting what YOU want. Establish boundaries. Organize a plan. Delegate.
My sister has done an amazing job at this. There are some details she and her fiancé are passionate about. These things, they will decide. There are details they are indifferent about. That would be left to my mother. Then there are the flowers… I will decide that. Sorry Sis.
Get help. Have fun. You are planning YOUR wedding.
Creech’s did your mother’s wedding. Creech’s did your grandmother’s wedding. Creech’s might have done your great grandmother’s wedding.
A lot has changed in the 60 plus years that Creech’s Florist has been in business. How brides are reached has changed with the internet and social media. Brides don’t use their mother’s florist. Brides don’t use their church’s florist.
The creation of CreechsWeddings.com is a step, a large step into the “new” wedding industry.
The talent is here. The experience is here. The resources are here. But, did you know that?
