104: Defining Luxury on Your Own Terms, with The Flower Guy Bron

Have you ever felt the pressure of keeping up with what looks "elegant" or "luxurious" on Instagram? Why? Why do we care about matching what we see on the cover of The Knot or Martha Stewart Weddings? Isn’t it more important that our clients are happy and we’re and we’re running a profitable business? Isn’t that why we all got into this?  The Flower Guy Bron  had this exact realization a few years ago and is on a mission to let wedding vendors know that winning Instagram shouldn’t be your goal. And as we move into a post-COVID-19 world where we’ll probably be experiencing more intimate weddings, that message will become more important. 


Weddings for Real is brought to you by The Planner's Vault, a membership site for wedding planners who are hungry to grow, ready to hustle, and actively seeking community and education. In the vault, there will be guest experts on many topics relevant to growing and cultivating a successful event planning business with new content added consistently, plus all of my templates that I have built out over the years like How to Get on Preferred Vendor Lists, The Client Experience, and more. The mission with the vault is to elevate the industry (along with some amazing experts and fellow entrepreneurs) and I want it to be affordable so it's possible to stay invested in the community and yourself for the long haul.

About The Flower Guy Bron (from The Flower Guy Bron):

"I'm Bron, the chief creative here at The Flower Guy Bron.  I'm a wanderer of the world and a modern day Renaissance man.  I love art, good wine and great company, oh and of course flowers.

My work with flowers is organic and my most natural expression.  I let the blooms whisper and I listen.  Therefore, it’s not always rocket science, but sometimes it is and I rise to the occasion.

I live by the simple principle, 'Be your best self' and encourage others to join me."
