hi all,

I know we tend to meet bridezillas and crazy MOH or who knows what else in our business, but I would like to just send a big icon_biggrin.gif smile out there to all the awesome clients we also have had.

I just did a wedding 2 Saturdays ago and the bride was so nice - she was such a pleasure to work with. You know those wonderful people we rarely get? She was that. She made my life so easy. At first I was a bit skeptical, because she was so open to my ideas on flavour combinations and suggestions - but she was just happy to get professional input. Someone who actually trusted my judgement! Her cheque balance, due 2 weeks prior to the event, seems to have gotten lost in the mail, and so she drove up to meet me, gave me the cash and apologized profusely for the inconvenience. I know she needed to give the cash anyway, but you rarely get someone who was just so easy to work with, and took responsibilty for the lost cheque that I'm sure Canada Post just forgot about (by the way - I DID finally get the damn cheque 2 days before the wedding!)

After the event, she sent me an email thanking me for the wonderful cake, how everyone loved the look and taste - it's always nice to hear compliments after all the hard work.

So, this is a kudos to those wonderful clients. When I am tired, or questoin myself and my craft, it makes me love doing this a bit more....and a big YAY to the cake designers and business owners who take all the time and effort to make someone's day extra perfect! thumbs_up.gif

That's so great to hear.

I had a bride this past weekend who was also super nice. She had her soon-to-be father in law give us a tip! (I always tell them that it isn't necessary, they usually insist, but this FIL kept it!--not a bother to me, just sort of funny)

The couples that make the effort afterwards to let you know how much they loved their cake...makes all the effort worthwhile. I absolutely love getting those notes and calls. Congrats to you that you made their day so special! It should feel good!
