Have you ever wondered why I didn’t write a review on my wedding decorators? I had a horrible experience with them. I decided not to publicly disclose their name because I do not want to bring any attention to them – whether its good or bad. Yes, my decor turned out gorgeous but I got what I paid for. Their incredibly poor people skills and their lack of professionalism stands out to me far more than the decor.
It was no brainer then that when my sister was getting married, we knew we had to find a new decorator. My sister and I both came across Lemon Truffle Designs Inc separately and we both fell in love. My sister met with Amna from Lemon Truffle Designs and starting from day one, she could not stop raving about her. Amna understood my sister’s vision immediately and together, they were able to bring my sister’s vision to life.
A few words from Amna herself:
- Tell us about yourself – what inspired you to start in the wedding industry?
I had always loved design, it might sound cliché but since I was a little girl it was my dream to go to design school and so I did and graduated with a degree in textile design. I had no interest
in business or science! All I wanted to do was create pretty things. I became an entrepreneur after my son was born. I gave it a shot by trying out gift baskets but slowly realized that it wasn’t satisfying my creative personality. I moved onto wedding favours which peeked my interest into weddings but I never got the guts to go in full force. My first event was a corporate one and then its history. You do one then you do another. I loved weddings the most as I got to do a bit of everything I loved. There were fabrics, accessories, flowers to work with! What else did I need
- What do you love the most about your line of work?
I am a very chatty and outgoing person. I love meeting new people and get excited every time I meet a newly engaged couple. Working with flowers, pretty accessories, fabrics and creating something unique each time is what I love most!
- What can a bride/groom expect from a meeting with you?
An initial meeting is normally for the couple to get to know me, my way of working, my style and also for me to get a sense of who they are and what their vision is for their wedding. We look at my past work, new ideas, magazines for me to get a sense of what we can put together for them and depending on what they decide we move forward.
- Your ideas are so unique, how do you stay creative in such a competitive industry?
I think you should stay true to who you are and your style. Once you realize what your style is you tend to attract couples who share the same taste. To stay creative, I usually try and think outside the box and different than what everyone else is doing. Fashion, nature and our surroundings are my best inspiration and of course a little bit of pinterest never hurts!
My sister and I both loved Amna’s professionalism along with her creativity. My sister was a happy bride and to this day, she always raves about Lemon Truffle Designs Inc!
