One day, a bride arrived at My Little Flower Shop in complete panic mode. People were asking about her wedding centerpieces, and everyone was horrified to learn that (gasp!) she had no earthly idea.
Her mother had obviously watched too many Katherine Heigel movies about girls longing for the big day, and having detailed plans worked out in their heads. The rest of the craziness making this poor girl feel underprepared must have been a combination of pressure from the bridal magazines, wedding shows, and probably well-meaning friends and family just wanting to feel like they are a part of things.
But here’s the point: if you don’t know what you want…that’s ok. You’ll still have a beautiful wedding. As you settle in to the role of “bride-to-be” you’ll find inspiration all over the place. Hotel lobbies, elegant department stores, anywhere you like the “feel” of, get that phone out and snap a few photos. Soon enough you’ll have an idea of what you love, and what you hate.
So resist the idea that you must know, right away exactly what everything will look like. Let it go, and embrace some Wedding centerpiece Peace of Mind
