Post-it Notes – Top Tips for your Wedding Planning & Business – 25th March 2011

Photography Credit: via .la douleur exquise.

Thanks for all your lovely comments on last week’s post. It would appear you all like this new feature. Hurrah!

Take inspiration photos when you go to visit suppliers and make sure they ‘get you’ and your wedding vision before you book them. If you’re asking for vintage roses and they offer you bright lilac blooms then they ain’t the vendor for you (believe me I speak from personal experience. I hated our wedding flowers!)

You’re the one spending the money, don’t feel like you need to impress them with your ideas…they need to impress you!

Style your business/blog around what pleases you. If your business (and the way you portray yourself online) is a true reflection of you and what you love then the readers and clients you attract will be the like-minded awesome kind.

Do not start a business or ‘talk-the-talk’ to impress anybody else. Don’t afraid to be real – warts and all. People will love you for it, I promise.

  1. I love this new feature, thank you. I’m meeting with my hairdresser tomorrow so I’ll be sure to take some pictures with me rather than rely on my ability to articulate the image I have in my head!

  2. Both are great tips.

    I also believe that your blog, Twitter posts and FB pages should be a reflection of who you are and what you and your business stands for. If peeps don’t like it then they can do biz somewhere else.

    Great idea to take photos or your scrapbook ideas along to any wedding planning meeting – don’t get sidetracked by someone else’s idea of what they have to offer you, rather than what you want them to offer you.

  3. thank you!!! Was just having this conversation (business note) with my ever wise mum last night-serendipity!!! it’s an awesome thing!!!-thank you!!!

    The wedding tip is a fab one this week, Kat.
    I have taken photos to all my meetings so far & am really excited that I have managed to find like-mind vendors.
    And I am meeting with a lovely crockery lady next week – Hope she is as fab as her emails are 🙂

  5. I hated my wedding flowers too! I communicated with the florist very thoroughly that I wanted GARDEN roses in pale pink and white, what I got was regular old roses…in magenta! 7 months later I am still very angry over it. You get what you pay for, lesson learned.

    Thanks for your little bit of advice Kat- currently trying to start my own vintage /vintage inspired blog and its nice to know that theirs other out there rooting for people to get on and do well. Your blogs been very inspirational to me, and love your ‘this is what i love this is what im going to post attitude’.

    I also put my trust in florist and had a bit of a floral calamity – as I walked down the aisle I was greeted with two bay trees ( with blue lcd lights and big tacky ribbons) resembling something that wouldnt look out of place in a Shameless wedding. So not what i had asked for to tie in with my vintage themed wedding. So I share your annoyance.

    Anyway thought I would write to say well done keep up the hard work – your blogs one of the best Ive seen and a big inspiration to my own future ambitions. Hope to join you soon in blogland.

  7. Brilliant advice on both business and wedding notes, so true about being yourself, thank you, I sometimes forget. AND I sympathise with you, Birds of a feather and Lauren over flower issues, I wanted simple WHITE gerbras, they were PALE YELLOW and the WHITE roses were pale GREEN….still a talking point with me and my man 5 years later!!
