Quick Q+A with WeddingFavors.org

Happy Friday, Blossomers!  We’re slowly finishing up our Mod Party Kit features  so I was brainstorming another fun series of posts we could have.   The first thing I thought about were our resellers; we’ve got so many great retailers out there and Event Blossom would not get very far without them.  Then I thought about how much fun it would be if we could get to know this great big family of ours even better.  Cue the lightbulb over my head.  “We should do a series of posts about these fabulous retailers who make the Event Blossom world go round,” I thought to myself.  Before I knew it, a plan was set into motion for a new series.  This series will be titled “Quick Q+A”  and here’s how it’ll work: we ask the questions and one of our brilliant retailers will provide the answers!

So without any further ado, here is our very first Quick Q+A with one of the newest members of the Event Blossom Family:

Operations Manager, Greg Wierenga, gave us some great insight!


Describe a typical day for the staff at WeddingFavors.org.  Any fun office stories you can share?
I don’t know if we ever have a ‘typical day’ :).  Each day is filled with it’s own fun and crazy emails and calls. We just work with each customer online or over the phone to make sure they find the perfect favor for their big day. Of course, having a ping pong table and wii in the office helps make some memorable stories as well. 🙂

Which themes/trends have been in demand for weddings and special events in 2012 so far?
Brides are always looking for something unique. They are also loving the ability to personalize so many of our items now. They want to give out something that their guests have never encountered before.

Do you have any trend predictions for Fall/Winter? 
We are expecting Brides to continue trending towards personalized wedding favors. Anything that will send their guests home with that personal touch and a real ‘Thank You for Coming’ gift.

What are some lessons you’ve learned from being a part of the wedding and event industry?
We have learned to expect the unexpected (like “i need favors in 3 days, can you help me!?”). We have also learned that there’s no room for mistakes. Favors are one of the last things purchased for any event. We assure customers they will have their favors when they need them and just how they ordered them. We want to be sure we follow through with what we promise, so we take a lot of care to watch each order.

How has adding Event Blossom’s product line added value to your website offerings?
It has given us a more complete line of favors that we can now offer to our customers. With the addition of Event Blossom’s product line, we feel we offer favors that will fit what any Bride is looking for.

There you have it!  I’d like to give a big “Thank You,” to Greg and WeddingFavors.org for being a part of this new series.  I hope you enjoyed this first Q+A — I know I did!  All other Event Blossom resellers, keep an eye out for an email from yours truly asking to be in the next Q+A.  But don’t think you have to wait for an invite!   Any interested retailers are more than welcome to reach out to me for a feature via the e-mail address below.*

I can’t wait to get to know more of you!
