I had such a fantastic time at Indie Wed! Initial estimates indicate that around 1,000 people attended the event, held on Saturday, January 30th at the Ravenswood Event Center. It was so wonderful to see past, present, and hopefully future clients. Seeing so many of my clients indicated that I was definitely in the right place! And, wow, such a fantastic group of vendors!
For Pollen’s display, I created three floral vignettes, each with a different theme: vintage, modern, and quirky/woodsy. I wanted to show the range of styles that Pollen can provide, and how flowers can truly enhance the theme of the wedding. The display also showed ideas for including eco-friendly options in wedding flowers.
Each vignette had a bridal bouquet, table centerpiece, and boutonniere, as well as a mini-inspiration board. My idea with the inspiration board was to mimic the initial part of the creative process of designing wedding flowers. Typically, a potential client comes to a consultation with a photo of some element of the bridal party’s attire, a color scheme, and sometimes an inspiration piece. It’s my job from there to interpret this look through the floral design of the bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and centerpieces.
In future blog posts, I’ll tell you about each vignette. For now, I’ll share photos of Pollen’s Indie Wed display and our new business cards, hot off the presses and just in time for Indie Wed.
