utah valley bride magazine: 2010 edition

Our 2010 advertisement in Utah Valley Bride Magazine has now been out for a little over a month, but I haven't yet posted it to the blog. Well, the time has come, my little friends! You can view the entire magazine online here. Check it out!

Our 2010 full-page ad:

In addition to our ad, Blossom Sweet also had three bouquets featured in the flowers section of the magazine entitled, "He Loves Me: 17 fanciful flower arrangements that will satisfy even the pickiest of petal-pickers." You've already seen these photos a few times, but I haven't posted their corresponding descriptions. So, here they are:

1. "The ultimate in elegance, this bouquet is ideal for the bride who expects nothing less than show-stopping floral artistry. In a flawless display, buttercream spray roses stand out on a backdrop of creme roses and dahlias. And let's not forget the final touch- a timeless vintage brooch."

{FYI: this particular bouquet was actually featured as a full page- the only one in the flower section! love it.}

2. "This lush bouquet is made for the bride who is shamelessly unafraid of color. An immaculate combination of flame callas, orange-france roses, burgundy dahlias, chocolate cosmos, and plum lisianthus creates a look that is stunning, striking, and bold."

3. "Fresh and vibrant, this trendy bright bouquet promises to provide the perfect pop of color. Add a beaded handle treatment, and you've created a signature style sure to wow the crowd."

And finally, Blossom Sweet had four pieces of floral advice featured in the "you do" and "you don't" sections:

DO: "Be selective in your designated choice of wedding florist. Choose a floral vendor with a great website and a regularly updated blog where you can see up-to-date posts with photos of their latest designs. Do your research!"

DON’T: "Be too trendy. I strongly advocate unique, current, and custom designs that are timelessly trendy. When you maintain the balance between “timeless” and “trendy”, you will never have occasion to look back and ask yourself, “What was I thinking?”

DO: "Be open to suggestion from your florist. She knows what she’s doing, and can tell you what will work and what will not work. If you’ve done your due diligence in choosing a florist who possesses a style you love, trust your choice! "

DON’T: "Save the best for last. Flowers are going to make or break the atmosphere of your wedding, so book your florist in advance. And keep in mind that the general rule of thumb is to allocate a minimum of 10% of your total wedding budget for flowers."

And that, my blog-reading friends, is the exposure that Blossom Sweet has in the four 2010 issues of UV Bride. It's shaping up to be a great year!

You are amazing, Melissa!! I only wish I had more kids to marry off so I could use your brilliant creative talent. I am definitely recommending you to grandchildren when they get married. Love, love, love your work!
