Working in the wedding industry means that my life is pretty much turned upside down from January-March. A whole new wave of brides get engaged around the holidays creating a rush on all things wedding related starting New Years Day. It's one of the most exhilarating (and exhausting) periods of my work life yet. Every day there's new products to pin and post, new trunk shows to advertise, travel plans to make, and store openings to share. All of it culminating in a lot of wonderfully romantic weddings in the next 4-12 months that hopefully BHLDN will be a part of.
It can be overwhelming to think that my work might directly influence the biggest day in someone's life. I try to think about my own wedding planning and the frustrations I faced, the DIYs I attempted, and the dream weddings I was inspired by every time I tweet, pin, and post to Facebook. Boiling it all down into different bridal types, all the while staying true to our brand's voice. Are you as tired as I am just thinking about it?
I'm not complaining though- I love every single minute of my job, even the ones I grumble about sometimes, because in the end I'm doing something I'm really passionate about, and r-e-a-l-l-y love. I mean how many people can say that about their job? I feel so incredibly lucky to be where I'm at so you'll have to excuse me if my posts seem a little erratic for the next month or so, or if my voice seems a little more serious and less playful than it does during normal times. There's just so much work to be done and only one me. - b.
