We have been seriously MIA in this blogging game, and please forgive us! So many changes have happened here at Dill’s. We’ve changed some staffing, we’ve changed some titles, and even better, we’ve changed ourselves! We are a newly improved group of flower-hungry designers.
Since the last time I stopped by here, we’ve had Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, New Years, Valentine’s Day (oh, Lordy..), Easter, Mother’s Day, and so on. (I know, I’m forgetting the extra fun holidays like St. Patrick’s Day, Grandparents’ Day, Boxing Day…the list goes on!) AND since the last time I filled you all in, we’ve had about 15-20 weddings happen, and that includes a BIG one!
Trending now are still the days of DIY, mason jars, and baby’s breath, but what’s even cooler is the trend seems to be “DOING YOU!” The trend is having a couple create THEIR day in the sun. They’re incorporating their favorite things. The most fun wedding I’ve had so far was a friend of mine from high school, Chelsea and her fiance, Mike. They’re fun. They’re down-to-earth. They’re happy. He loves comics and superheroes. She loves baby’s breath. Together they created the coolest day. Mike and his groomsmen wore superhero t-shirts under their tux button-ups so they could relax at the reception. It’s such a cool idea, I may have to just steal it. Another bride of mine’s fiance loves the St. Louis Blues hockey team, so as a surprise, Louie, the Blues’ mascot, showed up at the reception WITH the Blues’ official national anthem singer AND Towel Guy, another much-loved STL icon.
THIS is what it’s about, guys. BE the trend. YOU determine the trend. Just because garden roses and peonies are it on a stick doesn’t mean you can’t have daisies and carnations. Channel what makes you YOU and channel what makes you a couple.
Signing off for now, but I promise! We’ll be back!
