Lauren: As a newlywed (we will be celebrating two years in September… that is still considered newlywed… right?), I was searching for a new craft to turn my passions to. Bright colors and statement jewelry all came together in my creation of bohoblossoms! With just over four months of having my shop open on Etsy, I have fallen head over heels in love with these blooms! I’ve been blessed to create earrings for a bride and her bridesmaids,special earrings for a baby shower, and create custom packaging to make gifts of the heart that much more special!
Jenn: That is so awesome! So, what can my brides expect when they order their own pair of boho blossoms?
Lauren: Brides can expect a smooth process when ordering from bohoblossoms! Typically they simply ask to see all the blooms in a certain color - and I can then send the bride photos of all the blooms in all the shades. Once the flowers are chosen, they can be made into dangle, post, or flower flip earrings!
Lauren: Since I adore paper crafts, I've had a lot of fun personalizing the earring cards! If a basic card is being used, then just order the earrings as. If you have a special color scheme or a quote you'd like to include, just let me know! I've created a special personalized listing for made-to-order earring cards!
Lauren: Five years... wow I keep joking with my husband that we can quit our jobs any day now! But seeing as though we just bought our first house a few days ago and have hopes of filling those extra rooms with children - I don't know if that is completely possible! But a girl can dream! I love this crafting adventure so much - and I don't plan on stopping any time soon! I continue to grow my line as I learn new techniques or create new projects my supporters love! I'd love to continue to have my earrings ship across the country - and would love the chance to get into a boutique soon!
Jenn: It sounds like you and your husband are on a really exciting adventure together! Since you have been through wedding planning, what is your advice for brides?
Lauren: Advice for future brides? Quit stressing. Don't focus so much on the wedding - but take that energy and focus on the MARRIAGE! We've made the wedding day such a huge event - and that is wonderful and fun and such a memorable time! But there is also the marriage you are creating on that day. For every moment you spend worrying about the color and fold of napkins and the type of chair your guests will sit on, you should be spending 10 times that on your relationship with your husband-to-be. The napkins will be used, the cake will be devoured, but that next morning (and the thousands and thousands of mornings after that) you'll be waking up next to your husband. Don't you think that deserves a great amount of love and attention as those details on your big day?
Jenn: What is your favorite wedding tradition?
Lauren: My favorite wedding tradition is easy - the vows. Since I consider myself a woman of words (and English and Writing major in college) - those words we shared that day mean everything to me! We spent a lot of time before our wedding making sure each word we shared in our vows would hold us accountable, remind us, and build our marriage with strength and love. We also read love letters to each other during the ceremony - and those are the wedding traditions I hold so close to my heart.
