"We can't wait until this Wedding is over....! " The Camellia, Thunder Bay Wedding Florist

Sometimes in our shop, we've overheard some customers talking to one another...and the conversation goes like this: " We can't wait until this Wedding is over!"  You may have felt this way when called upon to help with someone's Wedding. Weddings have become a huge production.....Engagement parties, Shags,  Stags, Bridal Showers, Rehearsal dinners, after-Wedding Breakfasts, and the list goes on. I'm sure you can add more events to this list. It does become overwhelming for those involved. So how can you prevent things from getting to this point?

Social media doesn't of over-the-top-very-expensive-things keep popping up in your feed. You have to keep one important thing in mind..what do both of you want?

Conflicts arise when others offer you are fine with 2 floral arrangements at the Reception, your bridesmaid thinks you should have 1 on every table.

This wedding is about you and your partner-to-be. Your dreams. It's not a good sign when you hear..."We can't wait until this Wedding is over...!" It would all be easy if we all lived in the same town, or we all had holidays for a month leading up to the big event. But that's not real life. We still have to work, take care of children and grandchildren, run errands and do our day-to-day. So if you are hearing this phrase, it's time to step back, take a deep breath, and see what is essential, and what can be changed.
