Rachel here, starting off our first blog post of 2021 💫
We are just about ready to launch our Floral Wedding Course this March! Lindsey and I have been hard at work preparing this course for your guys and I can't believe we are about to make this a reality. When I first shared the idea of a floral wedding course to Lindsey, she honestly took idea and ran with it farther than I could have every imagined! Each class is packed full of information that we feel confident enough that you will have all the knowledge you will need to create and profit from wedding design. Yes profit!! We will be teaching everything from floral design, to colour theory, to purchasing your flowers, what to charge, how to budget and more.
Each class Lindsey will be walking you through and teaching you all the steps you will need to know in the wedding floral industry. I couldn't think of a better person for the job! I will be there to help you with your designs and answer any questions you may have for me.
I can't wait for you guys to meet Lindsey, I will have to get her to make an appearance on our instagram soon! Until then, this blog will have to do. Lindsey, take it away 🙂
Hi! My name is Lindsey and I have been working within the floral industry for many years. I started out at a local garden nursery in 2011, and there I discovered my passion for flowers, colour and design. I pursued floral training at UFV back in 2013, and am celebrating my 8th year of floral design here at Floral Support! 🎉
We have been working hard all winter, putting together something we are SO passionate and excited about: Floral Support's Floral Wedding Course! There is so much to learn in the floral world, and this course is about providing assistance and knowledge for people who are just beginning in this beautiful industry, and want to specialize in Wedding Florals. This course will span 10 weeks, and provide you with fundamental industry knowledge of wedding preparation, planning and the skills to design contemporary wedding arrangements.
