saf vs theknot.com

             If you are fans of the Today Show or friends with J M H Schwanke on facebook, chances are you may have heard about the latest case of misinformation concerning wedding flowers. 

             On April 29th, an editor from TheKnot.com was featured on the Today Show, talking about the cost of wedding flowers. The theme of the day was ‘Budgeting Tips for Beautiful Brides’. Two massive spherical arrangements were shown, one using ‘premium’ flowers (like peonies) and the other substituting with carnations and gerberas. And while TheKnot.com was correct in showcasing different tiers of flowers, when the prices were unveiled, individuals the floral industry gasped and then protested.

             So much so that SAF contacted TheKnot.com and the Today Show requesting that the information be corrected immediately (cool to know SAF is backing us up, right?). An apology was issued by the co-founder of TheKnot.com, stating that they had not realized they used wholesale cost (received from Hatch Creative) when pricing their arrangements. That’s one big oops! And one more reason to leave floral design to professionals.

             To read more about the mishap, check it out on J’s facebook page. Or watch the segment on Hatch Creative’s Blog.

fresh ideas….

modern vintage has arrived

             Finally, our favorite Fitz wristlet is back in stock! The Modern Vintage in Dazzle was a hit with prom goers, but we’re guessing it will be even bigger for hip brides looking to add a bit of bling to their big day. This chunky (but, o so elegant!) wristlet makes a fabulous keepsake and is nice enough to wear as a bracelet after the celebration. See more info at cuttsfloral.com.

            

rave of the week…………………..……………………………

black is back

             No, we haven't gone bonkers (and we’re not talking funerals!). Black has long been a traditional wedding color. Think black tuxedos or little black dresses for the bridesmaids (they’ll wear them again!). But it’s cropping up in new and unexpected ways.

             Wedding dresses are now featuring black accents (see Vera Wang). And we won’t even begin to tell you how many times we’ve seen black centered anemones featured in blogs and magazines (see Nancy Liu Chin). Black accents add a dose of glamour and sophistication, especially when paired with lighter colors . This trend is definitely worth watching!
