This: Beauty is simple, and you captured this within the centerpiece. Your Color scheme is neutral which makes the candlelight act as the pop. I love you included personalization with the place cards. I love you were creative with the water pot as the vase. The centerpiece itself has so much texture due to the different flowers and greenery you chose. Great choice. Now... to enhance the guest experience here are just a few things I would suggest. To keep the intimacy of the setting in tact, place the wine glasses on the right top corner of the plate within 2" of the plate. Place the menu card inside the silverware pouch. Guest love feeling they are opening something and will love to pull it out to read it. This also keeps the setting close and tight creating an intimate space for each individual guest at the table. To enhance the candlelight mood setting.. use 3 candle votives and place them in a triangle formation around the centerpiece base, this allows every guest around the table to see them and feel their warmth. Great job Kat. I'm so excited to see more!
We all know weddings can be very expensive and while I would love to work with a big budget bride many potential clients are trying to work with much smaller budgets (more often than not with no budget in mind at all... just as cheap as they can make it but with all the bling) and I would like to find a middle road with these brides. I am a planner/coordinator and while researching the market found no other advertised planners within a hour drive from me and many much further. I have yet to research silk floral designers. That is another branch in my business. I also make custom wedding gowns and so alterations. My example of what I'm dealing with is a bride who wanted silk bouquets for her, her bridesmaid, and boutonnieres for the groom and best man. I worked out the cost and gave her the estimate and she responded... I can do it myself cheaper at Walmart … I get this often. She then wanted a custom gown for less than $150 and preferably under $100... no I can't do that. Her next correspondence is "can you fix this?" and sent me this photo... and "oh can you do it for around $25?". I make it a point to try my best to work within the bride's budget if at all possible. Any assistance finding the middle ground and a more suitable target client would be greatly appreciated.
