When Community Doesn't Come Easily

One of the most common questions my Bloomers ask me is, “how can I create community in my local wedding industry?”

Kind of like a favorite black t-shirt, community can be something we don’t think about until we miss it. You might have heard the proverb: “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” So often, in the midst of growing our businesses, or surviving the busy season, or navigating new competition, we’re so focused on going quickly that by the time we notice that we miss a sense of camaraderie amongst our local vendors, we’re already burnt out and frustrated.

In an industry where we all know to tout the phrase “community over competition,” why is it still so dang hard to create real community with the people who live and work closest to us?

I’m going to keep it real here. The problem is probably you.

Yikes.

Welcome to the blog

Hi! I'm Jessica Zimmerman, top wedding planner and floral designer.

Born and raised in Arkansas, I’m a proud wife and mama to a 5-year-old daughter and 3-year-old twin boys. A true believer in freedom, flexibility (and of course, incredible flowers), I’m wholly devoted to creating a life I love to live every single day–not just on the weekends. From travel to business to weddings, this blog is full of features designed to inspire other busy mamas (and businesswomen) to make a living from their passion without giving up their lives.
