Wedding Wednesday :: Rainbow Flowers

After three glorious, bronchi
and flower filled days with the Florabundance Inspirational Design Days & Chapel Designers Conference – a group of us gathered and visited Lotusland in Montecito, health
California.
A special thank you to Laura Cogan of Passionflower for organizing the outing. Lotusland is closed for tours until February 19th, diet
but Laura spoke with them and organized a special trip for us flower lovers!
I’ve visited a good amount of Botanic Gardens, and have to say that I was absolutely blown away by Lotusland – it is now my favorite garden! It’s huge and the story behind it is tantalizing and fascinating. Better yet, the lady behind it is fascinating – married 6 times by the age of 59. Last divorce was in 1946 and she lived at Lotusland until her passing in 1984 at the age of 96. Seems she traded in the husbands for plants! Well, she really did trade in jewels so she’d have the funds to expand one of the gardens. You can read more about Ganna here and here.
Lotusland sits on 37 acres in the heart of Montecito, California. 26 of those 37 acres are under cultivation, with 14 gardens featured. I kept thinking I’d pick a favorite garden until I rounded the next corner and had my breath taken away again.
I’d highly suggest visiting Lotusland next time you are in the area, a visit lasts about 2 hours and you will feel like you’ve been transported to a Utopia.

Today we discuss a Content Call Question asked by Nancy Cameron of Destiny Hill regarding Reality TV.

Question #5
Discussing the floral industry and reality TV. One of our Brides this summer was picked for the show 4 Brides & a Wedding. My husband, rehabilitation
our event coordinator and I as well as the caterer the couple picked all refused to permit the show. Since the farm is our home we did not want camera crews here, esophagitis
plus we don’t care for the negative aspect of the show and we believe a wedding day is a sacred day. I’m not sure why the caterer said no to filming but the caterer absolutely is one if not the best of our preferred food vendors in service, cure
presentation and taste. I think one of the categories in the judging may have been flowers? But, I’m not really sure. Florist may want to think about how they would handle their Bride in a reality show with their flower design judged.

…..

Ugh, just say no to reality TV.
Margaret Burnette, Texas

…..

I did a show this summer ” say yes to the dress” and it will air this new year. I think it’s a great thing to get the word out on my blog, FB, etc, I think it depends on the show.
Tracy of Park Place Design, Michigan

…..

This is such an interesting topic and I agree completely that the wedding day is sacred and if a show has negative aspects I probably would not want to be a part of it. Small, mundane moments can be edited to look like a huge ordeal and I wouldn’t want to put my professional image in the hands of someone who might edit me for a dramatic moment.
Alison of Floral Artistry, Vermont

…..

I love your reasons behind your decision and would think any bride would also want to use you for these reasons. I’d never thought of this before but it’s good to mull over and be prepared with a response if approached.
Dana of Della Blooms, Maryland

…..

I just wouldn’t be open to that, we go thru a lot of ugly (processing flowers, dealing with unreliable product, setting up an event, etc) to create pretty. In the end, I want to make sure my client is happy but I don’t need any negative publicity or mean spirited comments in regards to my work. My team and I work too hard for someone who is not our client to put us down. It’s just not worth it.
Alex of Exquisite Designs, Illinois

…..

My theory is that nothing good can come from a reality show. They rarely give any recognition other than in the credits and who looks at those? Don’t do it!
Susan of Three Sisters Custom Flowers & Events, California

…..

I think a reality tv show would be way more than I could handle,and would cheapen the event.
Kelsey of Crabapple Floral, North Dakota

…..

I can’t bring my self to believe that I would participate.
Kris of KRISanthemums, Oregon

…..

Thank you to everyone that participated!

Did you see that title and become concerned?! Concerned you are about to look at a whole post of rainbow dyed roses?! Don’t worry, plague
I found lots of cool Rainbow Weddings with color blocking. It takes a certain kind of bride (daring) to go down the Rainbow path, cialis 40mg
but done right the flowers really can look cool!
