At the beginning of a year it is common to name the “top trends” for the next 12 months, here is my favorite list for 2012. However I think it is time for some “trends” to take the leap and become traditions. Below is my top five list of those trends:

Charity Favors: Crystal bottle stoppers and seed packets with your wedding date on them can be cute, however in my experience items like this are left behind more than 50% of the time. A charity favor, promotes a good…

Out of Town Guest Gift Bags

Traveling to a wedding is a big commitment for your guests, not only financially, but also because they have to spend a lot of time in an unfamiliar city. For example, if you are getting married in Chicago, there is so much to do and see that they probably won't have a clue where to start. One of the ways you can make them feel at ease is by giving out-of-town guests gift bags when they arrive. These bags should include several fun and practical items to make the wedding weekend more…

Questions you should ask your florist (that I've answered)

1. Why should I choose you over another florist?

Not many florists can offer what I can. As a silk florist, I can offer your flowers that will never wilt, that will never die, and that can remain a keepsake for a lifetime. In addition to that, in many but not all cases, I can offer you a much more affordable price than a florist working with live flowers. Also, reference silk vs. live flowers in my blog.

2. Does the florist have photographs or a portfolio?
