MyDadsGotAGuy is now on twitter!
I’m following a ton of professional bloggers in hopes of landing our DIY wedding on a few sites. I’ve been hastily trying to join the conversation – retweeting, posting links to articles, and of course as much of my own content is possible.
So far I’ve been happy with the results. A few distinctive wedding gurus have mentioned me and even commented on the blog.
This weekend I got a tweet from the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market (MPLSFarmMarket) suggesting that I patronize them for my wedding flowers. How did they know? That’s been part of the plan all along. In fact, it’s a fairly significant reason for choosing a DIY wedding.
Since I’m going for that ‘not professional’ look and using mason jars as vases, I’d hate to spend a bazillions dollars for a florist to make DIY-looking arrangements. That seems wasteful, don’t you think? The Farmer’s Market boasts huge boquets of seasonal flowers for $5! I bet I’ll be able to use 1 bunch per table. Oh the savings! Plus, Spencer’s mom’s got a guy at the market.
Back to my story. I replyed to the Farmer’s Market to confirm my plans and suggested that we put something together to advertise the collaboration. I knew it was a longshot but if I’ve learned anything from my husband-to-be, it’s that you can’t get what you don’t ask for.
To my surprise, they agreed! No details yet but I assume I’ll write a story and they’ll publish it on their website. How exciting. I’ll keep you posted.
