Ask Me: A New Column

March 4, 2013

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this blog lately and how I can better use it as a place to share my thoughts and ideas. And so, I’ve made a pact with myself to make this space a much bigger part of my business – and, well, my life in general. Blogs have become such a “thing” over the past several years, and I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes the amount of content swimming around out there on the internet is a bit overwhelming. It’s somewhat (okay, totally) intimidating as a never-before-blogger to become a part of that world, especially when there are so many people with so much more experience writing about such awesome things. But, I really love connecting with people and sharing the things that fire me up inside, and I think a blog is a great platform to do just that.

All of that to say, you’re going to be hearing from me a lot more often. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what I want to share here and how I want to share it, but I have some ideas up my sleeve and I’m excited to see where they go.

As you can see from the title of this post, I’m introducing a new column that will address questions I hear from brides and every day people in my life about – what do you know? – designing and styling your wedding. It’s a topic, and a part of the wedding industry, that is fairly new and often unfamiliar to a lot of people. This column will give me a chance to answer questions about styling in general (what the heck is it?! why do I think it’s so important?), but I’ll also be talking about different issues that you may come across when planning your wedding and thinking about how it’s going to look (how do you POSSIBLY come up with a design concept when there are billions of ideas out there? where can you look to find interesting props to incorporate into your wedding day?). If you’ve got a question or topic you’d like to see covered, let me know – I want this to be helpful for all of you brides out there!

The first topic I’ll be addressing is breaking tradition. We all know there are a ton of traditions that exist when it comes to weddings, from getting married in a church to the bride and groom smashing a (very expensive) piece of cake into each other’s faces. I realize there are a lot of people that want to keep a lot of these traditions in place for their own weddings, whether it be due to religious reasons or personal preference – and that’s totally okay! But for those of you who are interested in breaking some of these traditions, it can sometimes be overwhelming knowing where to start and what to put in the place of those common traditions. I’ll be diving into that next Monday, so make sure to stick around!
