There is some exciting news and I finally get to spill the beans and tell you all about it! This is something that has been on my mind and heart for quite sometime and it's finally here! I'm so happy to announce that One Sweet Day in May will be offering event design and planning packages to its services and I thought I'd write this blog post to break it all down!
WHAT IS CHANGING?
To be quite honest? Not a lot is changing. One Sweet Day in May is still first and foremost a floral design boutique. Planning is an addition to our services and will not take the place of floral design! I'm thrilled to officially offer two planning packages. The first is Event Design and Full Planning and the second is Coordination. Floral Design will be a separate service. This addition of One Sweet Day in May is a small one, but it feels like the natural progression of this business. Check out all the info here!
WHY IS IT CHANGING?
When I first made One Sweet Day in May into a business I wanted to be a dual floral design/event planner. At that time however, I thought if I took on both, I would be mediocre at both and I would be biting off more than I could chew. The decision to finally add planning took a lot of thought and advice from fellow industry colleagues. I still have a lot more to knowledge to gain about floral design and I'll never stop learning better and new techniques and mechanics, but I'm ready for this next chapter. In the past year and a half working with brides on their florals, I've found that I've been longing to be involved in everything regarding their weddings and at times have had to remind myself to stay in my floral world with them. Nothing is better than the feeling of a well planned celebration and I'm over the moon excited to be adding to my services. Though just floral weddings will still remain the largest part of OSDIM, I'm excited to give this part of my creative brain a chance. You'll still see all the floral goodness over on Instagram. Nothing has changed there. Just now you'll see more event design like beautiful linens, custom invitation designs, and fun installations! Hooray!
WHEN IS IT CHANGING?
It all starts now friends! I'm so excited to have my first event design and full planning bride with a wedding date of next April! This is going to be one gorgeous event! Think enchanted garden with classic touches. A BHLDN gown will be involved and the bride is longing for an oblong shaped bouquet (filled with peonies!) that gives the effect of flowers cascading down her arm when she holds it EEEK! My hope is to add 2-3 more planning weddings for 2016 to allow myself to still be intentional with all my brides. I'm so excited to finally let the cat out of the bag. Excuse me while I go do a happy dance for the rest of the day!
Here's to new adventures, friends!
