I wanted to share with you some insights from the Heart Wedding Show, that we attended on the 25th & 26th February. It is the largest show of its kind in Essex which attracted 3009 visitors over the weekend. It was lovely to meet so many couples and their families and here all about their upcoming weddings.
Before the show doors opened I began by setting up my stand, decorating it with some beautiful wallpaper with a shimmer of sparkle together with lots of handmade paper flowers and lights. I wanted my area to stand out have a feel of being a portable viewing gallery with lots of interesting things to see. Here is a little look of before and after…
I had a selection of flowers on display so the couples could really get a close up look of the quality of the flowers I choose to work with. We had a wonderful time showing the flowers and discussing ideas on how the flowers could be tailor made to really suit every couple and their flower aspirations.
I have now emailed all couples who left their details with us on the day and have already booked lot’s of upcoming wedding for 2017 & 2018. I look forward to creating your flowers for your special day! Just a little reminder that dates are limited so should you wish to book, please contact me to discuss this further.
We met lots of lovely exhibitors at the show, offering a variety of services and I shall list them below. I also had 2 fresh flower florists who recommended my work to brides and grooms who are having their wedding abroad, as artificial flowers travel so well, and also to those who had members of their wedding party who suffer with hay fever or couples who wanted a particular flower that’s not in season at the time of their wedding. This was a huge compliment in itself together with the surprise from an exhibitor, with a stand opposite, who only realised that my flowers were artificial at the point when we were dismantling the stand. She was convinced that the flowers were real until I showed her otherwise!
I am looking forward to the upcoming consultations where I shall meet with some of the couples again for a more detailed chat about what they are looking for. Consultations can be conducted via email, by phone and face to face consultations. If you would like to arrange a consultation please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange a mutually convenient time.
Today I have some new flowers being delivered!! Always and exciting time and I look forward to sharing them with you soon.
