and you wish you could be just like jennifer lopez

So Caitlin's fabulous wedding was tonight and it turned out beautifully! It was a busy, busy day and I am wiped out, but I was happy with the result!

Anyway. So what's with the title of this post you may ask? Let me explain. Usually when I have weddings and the creative bug in me gets going, I get new design ideas and I make a choice- use the extra time I have to make myself look pretty, or use the extra time to implement my ideas and make the flowers even more stunning. I choose the latter without fail! Today was no exception, and it reminded me of a conversation I had ages ago with my good friend Leslie Nelson, who is both a colleague in the business as well as my own personal mentor. The conversation went something like this:

Me: "Les, I have a problem. I always look so terrible when I deliver and set up weddings because I never have time to get ready! Is that normal?"

Les: "Oh I know Melissa, that's totally how it is. I'm the same way. And it's like you wish you could be like Jennifer Lopez in The Wedding Planner in your cute little business suit with your hair looking perfect... but no... it's more like jeans and a baseball cap because you didn't have time to do your hair."

Ha. I always think of that conversation on days like today when I'm looking a little rough setting up. But, I'm glad I can say that at the end of the day, even when I'm not looking top notch, you best believe those flowers are going to wow the crowd!

Well, like I said, I'm wiped out. So, I'm going to turn in for the night, but be sure to watch for the next post with my photos of tonight's wedding! I should be posting this weekend.

In closing, I'd like to leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the movie that always makes me laugh (or cry depending on the day... let's be honest...) :)

"Y'know, 'those who can't do, teach'? Well those who can't wed, plan."

Just putting that out there. Ha. Good night!

Hi Melissa,

I'm a wedding florist from Logan and you couldn't have said that better. We totally relate and often joke about our wedding day look... glad to know we're not alone. Beautiful work by the way:)
