People say I should pick a wedding "theme", is that true?

Picking a style, or "theme" for your wedding will come easier to some then to others.

With so many different styles and variations out there, it's hard to focus down on one specific style sometimes. The question that you need to ask is; What do you want to see on your wedding day?

Do you want glitz & glam

Soft & subtle

Or Rustic & charming

Those are just a few of the many styles that are out there. When choosing one, if you do choose to go with one, trust your gut. Don't be afraid that your wedding colors won't work with your theme, your colors will bend to any theme. Imagine the wedding that you've had in your mind since a little girl and run with it. Make sure it comes naturally to you, don't force something that isn't you.

So to answer your question, no you don't have to pick one, but once you start planning, picking colors, and coordinating, a style usually will pop into your head.

So what's this all about?

Basically since before I was born my mother has been a florist. Not just any florist, but a truly gifted one. She has the knack for bringing things together & creating something beautiful with them. So after all these years, I have gained an "eye" for what looks great, learned the tricks of the trade, and know how to turn something you might see into a D.I.Y. project that will save you a bundle.

So over the course of getting this blog up & into running condition, I'll be writing D.I.Y. articles, featuring new up & coming styles, and of course be answer your questions!

Feel free to contact me with your ideas or questions!

Whelp, here I go! Wish me luck!
