If you're getting married in the Georgian Bay region but you don't live here full time, the reality is that you are planning a destination (lite) wedding. It can feel a little intimidating to search for talented wedding professionals to help you put together your celebration, and work with them from afar.
I wanted to put together a series of tips and tricks for working with your florist from a distance, since it can be a little different designing when living in the same town. Here's a quick summary of some of my advice:
- Figure out the means of communication that work best for you -- is it email? Phone? Meeting in person?
- Practice empathy, always.
- Plan to plan, because being prepared goes a long way.
For the full rundown on how to work with your florist (and other wedding vendors) when you don't live in the same city, check out my guest blog post over at Georgian Bay Bride! You'll also find a great directory of vendors with the skills and local know-how to put together your special day.
