I styled a wedding this past month for family. I would NEVER go out on a limb and say I am a wedding planner even though, I have a Graphic Design Degree, been in 30 weddings, worked for a florist for 7 years, do calligraphy and well, pay attention to the crazy wedding trends.
Quite honestly, the whole planning of a wedding day is stressful as fuck! Just like Graphic Design, when you have a mind's eye and another person has a mind's eye? Never the two shall meet.
Even when your mind's meet. A battle of wills so to speak come into play. Though, this situation was way better than most when people are in charge of other people's weddings.
I did the bouquets. ALL OF THEM! I could pick them apart but I won't because I don't want to show all of my cards....Though, I think they say, "Bohemian Chic."
Candles hung from the tree tops. EVEN IN WEST TEXAS! Yea!!! We didn't burn that mother down!
Surprisingly enough, this bouquet didn't fall apart. I was REALLY CROSSING MY FINGERS AND PRAYING TO THE ALMIGHTY gods all would be okay here.
last minute signage an hour before the wedding.....
However, this signage, etc., was not last minute...
There are so many things I would have done differently only because I am so green in the complete vision of a wedding. Only because I have never had to completely plan or produce a complete product. I have to say, even in all of the cacophony, I think the result was beautiful and pleasing to the eye.
