Mother of the Bride Laura called us with a fabulous question: Would we assist with the fresh floral design for her daughter Paige’s wedding? Yep, you read that correctly – she asked us to ASSIST and we said heck yes! But her idea was much bigger than that. She asked if we would lead a DIY bridal party workshop a couple days before the wedding. So we set up shop at our design studio for the ladies (plus Paige’s dad, Dave) to create 25 centerpieces and several bridesmaid bouquets in one fun evening, with two of our floral pros – Julie and Erin – at the helm. Here’s what Laura said when a friend on social media asked how Dave did with the workshop:

“Not only was Dave outstanding… the Merry Me staff was… no surprise,” she said. “We had a centerpiece station set up and a separate table where each bridesmaid was able to create their own bouquet… with just the right amount of guidance. We all had a great time and I would highly recommend this to any bride to be!!”

And Dave’s take?

“Real men can make flower centerpieces,” he commented.

Thank you, Laura, Dave and Paige for allowing us to be part of your wedding memories. We had so much fun with this!
