A few weeks back I emailed my lovely vendors with a few basic questions, and the responses have been awesome. I LOVE how honest everyone is, and how the advice for newly engaged brides is so useful. So today it’s all about my lovely friend Ana from Nice Ribbon Ateiler. (She is a master baker and creative queen and we love her.)
What’s been the highlight of the year so far?
This has been a pretty good year, and I love every project I did, I always have the opportunity to work with some incredible clients, and also learn so much from the vendors I work with, in some of the events. If I had to choose a favorite project of this year, I don’t think I could, I think every single thing I did, was special in its own way, from the small cake for a kids party to a beautiful wedding cake.
Do you have any big plans for the next wedding season?
It is always challenging to start a new season, and I am sure this one will be full with new ideas, and a fresh start after a small summer break.
What will you be doing this summer?
This will be a pretty special Summer, since I will be out of work taking a Maternity Leave. We are having our first baby, so I think this is a really nice opportunity for me, to have a breath of fresh air, and come back full of good baby vibes and new ideas for the next season. I would like to focus not just in the baby, but also have the advantage of this time and organize my ideas, to come back to work and do what I love to do the most, designing some new things and be creative.
Do you have any advice for a newly engaged bride-to-be?
I think the key to a successful wedding is to ORGANIZE your ideas. I always recommend to compile a binder or have a plan (on writing), in your email, a to do list, a notebook, or whatever works for you, but always write down every idea you have on the way. I think is always nice to share your thoughts , and maybe some times a couple of inspiration pics with your vendors, maybe some notes that you write during your meetings, to explain the details and have a well put together idea of what would be your dream wedding. Your wedding vendors should be your guide during the process, but it is important for the bride-to-be, to keep a clear concept on what she wants to have, in order to get a successful and magical Wedding.
