What if?

What if you get sick? What if you have an emergency? These are 2 of the most frequently asked questions I hear from prospective clients. 

It is  no secret that at times I am a one women show,  but when it comes to designing and setting up for weddings I would be insane to attempt it alone. I am lucky enough to  have wonderful crew to help me with flower processing, prep work, as well as delivery and set up. If I need design help for an event I have a wonderful set of trained designers who can copy samples and follow my direction.  Nothing leaves the studio without my approval. I am a control freak when it comes to my work and I am the only one who makes bouquets (those are mine). I have hand picked and trained an amazing crew to help with set up and deliver. They can deliver  bouquets, set up centerpieces and decorate cakes just as well as I can, after all they learned from the very best. 

One of  the best part about my job (besides the best clients) is most of the planning and designing is done behind the scenes giving me a very flexible schedule. Photographers, Planners, MUA, and DJ's work the day of a wedding and some work the whole day giving them a strict schedule to follow.  I do have a delivery schedule and set up schedule to follow, however,  its what leads up to that delivery that makes it different for me. The flowers and designs are planned out Months in advance and  the flowers and supplies needed for each wedding are ordered weeks in advance. I can design any time of day or night and because I work from home I can take my time . If it takes me 10 hours longer to design a wedding because I am sick, the bride will never know and it will not effect the final product or cost them any more.  If in the rare instance I have an emergency or end up in the hospital  I have complete faith in my crew that they will step up to the plate and be able to follow my directions and design the flowers needed for each event as well as execute the set up and delivery with the same care as I would.  I am amazed at how much Stylish Blooms as grown over the past year. I can't wait to see what is in store in our future!
