Good Wednesday to all!!!
Hope everyone is having a great middle of the week day, I am! I have so much to look forward to, but mainly the greatest is that I am excited to share that I will be doing the decor for the Victoria Bridal Show here in Victoria, B.C on October 21st.
I have started to come up with a basic theme or concept with the show, and am so excited to get started. I have recently discovered that I love ingenuity, which is bizarre…I think I have always created things from basically nothing ever since I was a child. I have always loved working as a wedding decorator but last night was a great epiphany. I discovered that there are other great artists out there with great blogs that inspired me to do what I do best, and that is to just let the creative juices flow and just be me. Not to follow the per-say trends of wedding decor. Give the Bride, (and I say Bride because this is whom usually I am first in contact with when consulting and creating the decor for a wedding) what she really wants…not just a choice from a perhaps full range of pre-manufactured linen and overly used decor, but to make custom wedding come alive by simple trying and using simple object and great finds. I am not saying that decorators don’t need a good inventory, but I think I am going to be slightly altering what I add to my inventory from now on.
Back to my theme…sorry I like to drift. I was really trying to think what would be really different, top of the wedding decor trend, would grab attention and help steer clients my way, and I stopped to think that really what better way to know what a bride would want than to pretend to be that bride myself. Yes I am “The Bride” picking out the decor for the wedding show, and as “The Bride” I have decided that really what I would love to see is something creative yet pretty, something I could really see used at my own wedding or the basic concept. And that is why I have chosen texture as the theme. I have started collecting a file of all the “pretty things” that catch my eye, and with this file of inspiration be it a flower, a ruffle on a curtain, a vintage wedding gown, I am keeping my eyes open and hopefully it will all translate into a great theme that will really appeal to Brides attending the Victoria Bridal Fair October 21, 2012.
I look forward to taking pictures and sharing them shortly so you can see the progress…of course I will keep some details secret and will have a great reveal on the big day…”my big day” October 21, 2012.
Have a great day everyone!!! XOX
