Life is a special occasion

TOTW : It's Flower Time

Taking on the task of coordinating your own wedding will be, well quite frankly, it will be at times overwhelming. Thorough planning is a great way to alleviate this feeling. Seriously, plan everything. That's my motto.

When you get to the part where you are coordinating the event day details with all of the selected vendors, make sure that you have your personal flowers arrive at least an hour before the photographer and videographer. Especially if your packages have a time limit on them.

You don't want to have your photog and videog arrive, and not be able to snap pictures of the flowers. First, you will miss out on capturing the beautiful arrangements you've purchased. And lets be honest here. How many times in your life will you be toting around a custom made bouquet AND be dressed to the nine AND have bangin' hair AND have fresh make up AND be surrounded by all of the people who are closest to you in your life AND have a professional photographer and videographer on hand to document it all? Yeah, not that often right!

But beyond this, without bouquets...what will all of you be doing with your hands? Can you say awkward. Most wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses don't come with pockets. I sure don't want to be responsible for creatively posing, oh let's say nine bridesmaids plus a jittery bride when the don't have their bouquets to hold on to.

Lastly, time is of the essence on your wedding day. Most venues and vendors are flexible but only to a certain point. If you go over the contracted hours, you might end up paying overtime. So plan wisely!
