I feel it is so important to connect, really connect, with your vendor. When you connect, you will allow us to do our job because you have faith in what we do, you believe in us and you trust us. All my brides know that I might have to change or adjust something last minute if it doesn't come in up to par or I can't get something I have ordered. Trusting in me allows me to make the decision to do so, knowing they stand behind the decisions I make.

They can take the succulents out and plant them and enjoy them in the years to come. You don't have to have a green thumb to grow succulents!
