I love the delicate flower called sweet pea. It has a really short season and you sort of have to grab it while you can when it comes to using it for an event. When it comes to weddings, I try not to promise a flower to a bride if it has a short season as it might go away just as fast as it came. It’s not so sexy but I think it’s so important to always have a Plan B (that goes for many aspects of a wedding). What I mean by a Plan B for flowers (this only applies to flowers that have a short season or are difficult to find) is that I like to put together an “ideal” bouquet with the brides’ dream flowers. Then come up with a bouquet that will hopefully make her just as happy with flowers that give her the “look” she is wanting.

This makes me think that I should do a post dedicated to those seasonal/difficult to find flowers. I will put it on my list of things to do.

Warm regards my lovelies,
