My Second Wedding

Posted by Alanna on July 13, 2017 at 8:45 PM Comments comments (1)

Saturday the 8th was a big wedding. Jen, Julie, and I worked for about ten to twelve hours the Friday before the wedding. We were putting together the center pieces, bride and bridesmaid’s bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and the favors. It was a long twelve hours but it was completely worth it the next day.

After getting only about four hours of sleep, I was wide awake and ready to go the day of the wedding. I was extremely excited to get the cars packed and get on the road to the wedding. Once we got to the venue, Jen had to re-due some of the corsages because some of the flowers weren’t as white as they should have been. For situations like this, that’s why Jen always orders a few extra flowers. And if she doesn’t need to fix anything, she will just decorate with the extra flowers. So, either way, the client will get full use out of all the flowers Jen orders for them. I was honestly impressed with how quickly Jen fixed and re-did some of the corsages.

I was in charge of cutting the stems to the flowers that were going to be on the head table and then organizing the favors since they were also the guests place cards. I absolutely loved the favors, they were so adorable! It took me a while to put the favors in alphabetical order when we got to the venue, but it got done! Once they were all set out, they looked amazing on the table.

When the entire venue was finally set up, it was a sight to see. This was my favorite part of the entire day. To see all the hard work everyone put in and see the venue come together. The bride was extremely happy with how the flowers looked and how the entire venue looked!


First Stationary

Posted by Alanna on July 6, 2017 at 9:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Today was my first day fully working on stationary!

I had to cut out information cards and it was…. nerve wracking to say the least. When I first started I was extremely nervous that I was going to mess up and make the information card un-even. But, once I got into the swing of it, it wasn’t that bad!

I was using a big paper cutter. And I knew I was really in the zone because for a second I looked to my right (by the blade of the paper cutter) and noticed that I had cut off a chunk of my hair!

I was crouched over the paper cutter and just in the zone of cutting the stationary that I didn’t even realize that I had cut my own hair!

Jen and I had a good laugh about it. It was a good way to take a quick break before finishing up the stationary.

Even though I was stressed about cutting the information cards, I can now say that I feel more confident for the next time that I have to do this!
