Faces Behind the Laces #5 Edna
I hope you are all still enjoying getting to know the wonderful ladies from Blanca Veils! These ladies have such important roles and we want you all to get a chance to get to them a little better. We are truly lucky to have such an amazing team of ladies that give each veil the care and attention it needs to make it to our brides for their wedding day.
Today, we would like to showcase the very hard working, Edna (lovingly referred to as Granna to all that know her). This lady is usually one of the first to the shop in the morning and the last to leave at night. While she describes her job as "all around flunky" we would describe her as the jack of all trades and extremely busy.
Granna has worked for Blanca Veils ever since the business was started and when asked what her favorite part of her job is, she says:
"That I dont have to punch the time clock and the pleasant employees."
Granna trims laces, sews, packages, helps other employees and does really anything that is asked of her so chances are she has had a hand in making your one of a kind veil... maybe at a few different stages in the process.
If Granna had to choose a veil for herself she would choose
"...a fingertip length veil with lace #9."
When asked about her dream wedding this is what she had to say:
"[I] was born and raised in New York, came to Texas at 17 years old and got married. I raised four children and have never regretted my decision."
Her advice to brides is
"DO NOT STRESS OVER THINGS YOU HAVE NO CONTROL OVER!"
While this is easier said then done, it is true that brides forget to have fun on their day. Your wedding day is a celebration of love and the joining of two families. While family can be stressful just do not forget to breathe and smile.
Thank you all for reading our 5th in the Faces Behind the Laces series of blogs. We only have a few more but trust me all these ladies are worth getting to know if only through a blog and they are all working so hard to make sure that the veil that you order is exactly what you are dreaming of for your wedding day.
