Change of Plans...

Don't you hate it when you have this image, this idea, this plan, and you start to execute this plan, this idea, this image and everything just falls apart.
Okay, well maybe I am being over dramatic. Just a little bit.

As an Event Planner, nothing ever just falls apart, it just shifts a little bit. So that is what needed to happen. A minor shift in thinking.

For our grand opening celebration on the 27th, I had this fantastic idea for the centerpieces.... but it would take 2 weeks to execute and since the Grand Opening is two weeks away that timing should have been perfect. But, well, it just wasn't meant to be exactly.

You'll have to wait to see the final product - heck I have wait to see the final product. But to give you a hint, Jennifer will be SO proud of me!

What I wanted to have as the centerpieces:

I think this post is leading me to talk about being open to ideas and understanding that although you might have an idea for something and you want that exact pink for that exact rose and that exact photograph or that exact pose.

Just because something worked out for "that bride" doesn't mean that, whatever "that" is- is going to be perfect for you. The time of year may not work out correctly for you to have that exact rose, it may come into your florist and look like crud - so they need to make some minor adjustments to the flower - for the best obviously.

Or that exact pose may have looked great for that size 0 model, but for us normal people who wear clothes that actually have numbers (numbers being plural) as the sizes just don't work for us.

Just keep in mind while going through the process of planning that everyone wants what's best for you, and sometimes you need to take a deep breath and know that this is your day, and your dream, and it will be amazing, no matter what!

I can't wait to see what you've got in store for us! And ditto on the great advice! A lot of heartache can be saved if you're more open to ideas...and changes of plans.
