Which Social Media Platform is your favorite and why?
My favorite social media platform is Instagram. Like all social media, it has it’s positives and negatives. Positives: I have made some amazing connections with photographers and wedding planners – which has translated into a good bit of business for me. I’ve also found some terrific local flower growers and can easily stay current with what they have coming out of their fields.
Negative: If you let it, it can stifle your creativity and make you question your abilities. Be mindful to only follow people who lift you up and inspire you.

I love Instagram – its visual nature lends well to the kind of work we do. I’ve been able to run successful shop promos and contests through instagram without spending a dime. And it links to Facebook & Twitter easily.

I love using Instagram and Facebook – I can easily post current photos of weddings for prospective brides to peruse. They love seeing new ideas in the location where they are getting married. It often leads to add-ons because they fall in love with a look.

Instagram is our favorite social media platform, because our work is so heavily based on visual aesthetics. Instagram is the best way to give a quick and varied pitch to potential clients and brides because it shows a collection of our work in a simple and fun way. I love setting up weddings all weekend, and then getting inquiries on Monday with pictures that I posted, saying that they want to book me based on what they had seen.
