Allow me to introduce myself 👑

My name is Melissa; mother, wife, certified wedding planner and owner of Melissa Dewgards Designs. I’m a born and bred Brooklyn girl, but I spent a few years living in FL (where i fell in love with the #SaltLife) while my husband was in the Air Force. I have 2 children who are the reason for me building this brand. I’m a crafter at heart, and a lover of LOVE ❤️. My specialty is alternative wedding bouquets and accessories. Pearls are my “thing” but I can do it all; brooches, silk flowers, you name it. I’m here for YOU. To bring your DREAM vision to life. DM me, click the link in my bio and follow my Etsy shop. Let’s chat about what I can do for you 👰🏽 #HelloWorld #MeetTheArtist

Why I do what I do? Apart from being a creative, so being excited by design and helping clients, my main drive is these two ... working for myself allows me to be flexible, which in turn ensures I never miss an assembly or an opportunity to support them. I know how lucky I am to be in that position. #wrbinstachallenge #behindthebrand #womenrockingbusiness #plotdesign

There are so many reasons why I do this, why I run #thecarryingworks & moments like this are just one of them. The relief on a parents face, the baby struggling with a new world who settles before the carrier is even fastened, the realisation their hands are free & they can still hold their baby close, the toddler adjusting to a new sibling, a tired preschooler needing to reconnect. Carrying my boys, along with everything it has brought to my life, has had & continues to have, such an unimaginable impact on our family life & my mental health. The opportunity to share such knowledge with families & carers, to support them to travel their journey & to discover new things is a real privilege.

We’re at Blueline Rental’s killer kickoff event down in Houston at Minute Maid Park! ⚾️ #bluelinerental #promolife #kickoffevent #2018
Today for the #WRBIntstaChallenge we are talking about why I do this!  There are so many reasons.  One of the biggest is the happy look on a mamas face when she feels that closeness, another is sleeping babies!  Here are two of the library regulars, the first a 6 week old in a Sleepy Nico, the second was taken at the birthday party yesterday.  The birthday boy found it all a bit much, the sling meant he could reconnect with his mama and fall asleep.  #WomenRockingBusiness #BehindTheBrand #Photography #CarryThemClose #HappyBirthday #SleepyDust #SlingSnuggles

FAVOURITE RECENT TESTIMONIAL 🌿 The most powerful of our senses is our sense of smell. A smell can bring on a flood of memories, influence our mood and even affect work performance. This is why we spend so long working to perfect our essential oil blends to get the scent just perfect. So when we get feedback like the one above it makes me do a little happy dance to know that we’ve got it just right 🤗

It’s always wonderful to get feedback on our sessions, whether that be a library session, a workshop or a 1-2-1 consultation. It helps us to shape sessions, know what people like as part of the session & what they don’t. Feedback is hugely important, it helps us to learn ❤️ And sometimes, reviews like this are exactly what we need to hear after a tough day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #WRBInstaChallenge #WomenRockingBusiness #BehindTheBrand #TheCarryingWorks #CarryThemClose #CarryingMatters

Although I dropped fuchsia as the official color of Manic Trout a few years ago, I'll still always consider it the unofficial color of the brand. Which means that I also always perk up when I spy fuchsia gems. Like this amazing red beryl specimen. Isn't it lovely?

Who knows the story behind the name Annalise?! No? Story time it is! 🤗
•
The name Annalise is actually the name of a little girl I used to babysit! She made such a significant impact on my life & I loved the name so much, I knew it was a name I was going to hold onto for my future child! Well before I had my baby girl... this shop was my first baby! 🎀
•
I just wanted to share this little story for two reasons. The first, I get asked A LOT! And secondly, I want brides to know the pieces of me that I have poured into this business! Yes, there are the obvious details such as my wedding photos in the back office and my favorite candles that are always lit around the shop, but this one is a bit hidden! 💕

A whole lotta love has been (and continues to be) put into this shop & we hope you feel it the second you walk in! ✨ | 📸 @nickimetcalfphotography

This feedback always makes me smile. Up until this point, most responses from Tom had been 'mm-hmm', which according to his fiancée Marilena did actually mean he was very happy with things. For Tom to say it was MORE than 'mm-hmm' ..... well, that's an uber-compliment! I put my heart and soul into your day, from planning to the very last edit. You taking the time to tell me you are happy with my work is always super special.

Essential tools of the trade. Soother to keep the baby quite while I try to work toys for the same reason! IPad is a must for website and Instagram work and I'm an avid note and list maker so that's never far from where I am.

A bit of history... L'Artisan Parfumeur is het resultaat van een uitdaging, een plaisanterie. Vanwege zijn opleiding als chemicus vroeg een vriend aan Jean Laporte of hij een bananengeur kon maken die bij zijn kostuum van hetzelfde fruit te dragen was, tijdens een gala-avond in de Folies Bergères. Soortgelijke aanvragen kwamen binnen met als resultaat diverse grapefruit- en vanillegeuren. 
Jean Laporte experimenteerde en creëerde originele parfums van natuurlijke essences. Met het succes van zijn eerste geurencollectie werd hij door parfumenthousiasten “L'Artisan Parfumeur” - de vakman van geur - genoemd. Lees meer over dit Franse merk op www.artisanparfumeur.com/en-gb/inside-the-brand/history.html of shop de producten direct op skins.nl.

BE BRAVE! .... weigh things up and if it is best for you, go for it!

I came to a cross road in my life where I could continue along my legal career, which I loved and apparently I was rather good at (so I hear!) Or I could take the plunge and follow my heart. 
Around 2 years prior I had just returned from Edmonton County Court and was sitting at my desk having my lunch. I opened The Times newspaper to find a feature of a top london lawyer who had taken the plunge and opened her own florists shop. In her own words 'I have never been happier'. I turned to my collegue and said if I wasn't doing this I would be working with flowers.  I didn't actually think it would happen.... but it did.

After our 1st child was born I had a decision to make. Go back to corporate life or take the plunge. I decided on the latter and am very happy I did. It's given me the opportunity to be able to spend the time with my children, watch them grow albeit it meant working through til 3am to get everything done in building a business and fulfilling orders, but it was worth it.

I feel very lucky to have been able to do this as I am well aware many do not have the choice available to them. Do I miss Law? Oh yes! There are days I would love to be back in the court room or researching legal issues. Am I content and happy?  Very much so. 💕

Thank you to all my couples and loyal clients over the years that made it possible.

Dee 💖💖 .

Today for the #WRBIntstaChallenge we are talking about our creative friends.  This is a really hard thing, because I have so many!  I have decided that as this is photograph based challenge I would focus on all of my photography friends.  I have loads of friends who are great photographers, both professional and as a hobby, like @thecarryingworks @starlet_rob @thedukes_babywearingphotography @sarahwovenwings and others.  But there are two who I want to mention especially, one is the lovely Jenny of @indigoandviolet who helped me to be able to use my camera, I still have a long way to go, but I am much further along in my journey than I would have been without her.

The other is my neighbour.  Julie runs @artpackforphotographers She takes many of the photographs I use on my blog. The service she runs for photographers offer great bespoke products, I throughly recommend having a look.  #WomenRockingBusiness #BehindTheBrand #Photography #CreativeFriends

What is it I love about my job? People. People and everything that makes them who they are. That tiny moment when you really see them - whether they are alone or in company, looking at you or away. There is a gift in the seconds you truly get to see someone and it's even more special when you catch that so they can keep it forever.

My favourite part of this job is making artwork that really means something to people. This map of Canada was created for a lady I met at a craft fair last year. She wanted something to remind her of her homeland- the map that I created has the names of all the major cities and tourist destinations and is filled with quotes about this amazing country; even featuring extracts of the national anthem in English and French. #mapofcanada #canada #ilovecanada #canadian #calligraphymap #travel #wrbinstachallenge #womenrockingbusiness #behindthebrand #calligraphy #moderncalligraphy

Today we got asked a question that I haven't even thought about for over 5 years!! Our business name and the reason behind it. It's simple we want your experience with us to be all about you! The service we give, the flowers we create, everything we do is always about you. Every thought of ours from the very first enquiry to the wedding day is always about you! So Thoughts of You!

Growing up if people asked me how I would describe myself as a person I'd say "I'm a planner, I like to plan how things should and will be. If somethings not right, it needs to be fixed. I'm also a dreamer and have a big imagination" that description is very much still true and thankfully for me those traits work hand in hand to create something amazing 👰🌹👌😊 #plannedtoperfection #personalitytraits #weddingplanner #weddingplanneruk #planningweddings #weddingsupplier #weddingbusiness #weddingideas #thisgirlcan #meetthemaker #behindthebrand  #2018bride #2018wedding #2019wedding #eastmidlands #womeninbiz #womeninbusiness #girlboss

“Ideen til Pechuga opstod en rødvinsaften hvor Hanne og jeg sad og diskuterede bæredygtig mode (som er vores store passion), og feminisme i forbindelse med kvinders liv, forventninger, kriser, karriere og kærlighed.

He’s never funny (despite what he says), he has terrible taste in coffee and he is one of the brains behind #IntegritiBathrooms. Meet Andrew, Andrew saw that the residential construction market still lacked the basics: honesty, reliability and integrity, so along came Integriti Bathrooms. #MeetIntegriti #behindthebrand #IntegritiBathrooms #BathroomsWithIntegriti
Our little Olivia turned T W O today! She was such a huge inspiration in starting up this company! I was only a few months postpartum when I took a huge leap of faith and turned one simple vision into an international company! At two she has this amazing light she sheds on the world, is fearless, spunky and so loving! I know when she turns 16 I’m in deep trouble, but for now I’ll enjoy the snuggles! #personalpost #happybirthday #inspiration #mompreneur #familylife #behindthebrand

Getting ready for my Friday live video earlier today (you can catch it on the manic trout Facebook page!) about Galentine's Day. Sleeveless was not a good choice for how chilly it was in my studio and was changed into a sweater seconds after the video! For those of you who don't know the face behind the brand, my name is Sierra Bailey and I am the designer, maker and everything-er here at Manic Trout. Lovely to meet you! .

One of my favourite parts of running #TheCarryingWorks is connecting with families, seeing them grow & develop. The little boy I am interacting with in this photograph is now almost 10mths old, the first time I met him was when he was a tiny squish & just a few weeks old ❤️ Thankyou to every one of you that connects with us & allows us to be a part of your journey 🌈

So, you all know Chuck, she is our original Baby Bird. But, this guy here is the other little chick in our nest. He doesn't get nearly as much love in our feed on account of the fact that he isn't known to wear bows in his hair very often. But, he's here and he's pretty dang awesome. And how about that sister of mine - she makes adorable bows AND adorable babies. #skillz

Found my favorite!!! Y’all the designer of this collection (Brighton has multiple designers, that is how each of their collections are so unique) was dreamy herself! With a heart for travel, an impeccable eye for detail and the way she talked about the leather with such a rich accent, I couldn’t help but feel like I was no longer in a Los Angelos show room, but somewhere on a Spanish Vineyard.  This style comes in 3 sizes and another lux color, yet every bag will be unique in coloring details due to the leather pallet, which I LOVE! Basically all one-of-a-kind!!

I had the pleasure of sitting in with their design team and hear the heart behind the designs for  the Spring collection. I am always in awe at how the fashion industry weaves through concepts to create a trend and how it flows from brand to brand, each putting their own spin on it for their customer.

After the factory tour I took a spin through the showroom to peep all the Spring product 👀 can not wait to get my hands on these pieces for my clients. @brightoncollectibles does hammered pieces oh so well and I love the aztec spin.

I love fashion.... like I LOVE EVERY  personal memory and experience that has shaped my passion into a career. When I was 16 I saved up babysitting money to purchase a @brightoncollectibles belt that I saw and had to have! I am kicking myself that I do not still have that belt, but getting to make a belt in their factories was such a special experience! I wonder who the lucky customer is to receive this one of a kind Brighton X Art of Style collab 😋

Watching the belts of many brands be hand made at the @brightoncollectibles campus was amazing! I only have Asian factories to compare it to and man was this different! The sense of community amongst the craftsman was of a family. I met artisans that had been working in the factory for over 30 years!

Happy friiiidayyyyy!!!! How is your new year going so far? Have you stuck to your resolutions ok? I didn’t really make any new year resolutions but just told myself I needed to be better and stop worrying so much. This year it’s about putting in the hours at the studio, making the calls and writing the emails I’ve been too scared to do and manifesting the shit out of all that positivity out there. Helped enormously by listening to super enthusiastic girl boss podcasts with my babe @laurenradleydesign at the studio. Come at me 2018, I’m ready for ya. (Lovely pic taken by lovely lady @gracehurrypilates) and the tankards are available for pre-order on the website, so head there to get Yours before they sell out again ♡

This is my current favourite playlist on Spotify when I want to relax. My music taste is pretty eclectic and I love the way that music can literally transport you into another place or even mood. I enjoy listening with my 🎧 so that I can turn my music up loud and shut out any distractions (just for a little while 🙂).

As much as a lot of us say that we like to read to relax, I've not yet seen a bride pull out a trusty book when the nerves hit on her wedding morning! Usually it's down to a much-loved tune being played or fully indulging in the pre-ceremony pampering that does the trick.  For me, the things I take time out for are live and social events like music or comedy. I also love movies and discovering new places. And it just so happens that all the things I love remind me of weddings... I see a new band and think, "That would be an awesome first dance/wedding video song' or watch a movie and admire the composition and lighting. What do you all make time for in your lives?

Cloudy days make the studio so gloomy. As do the past their time twinkle lights that are still up on the bushes our side my window. At least I have a few plants in here for the winter until it's warm enough to be back in their patio jungle. My Favorite part of this moment? Faye peeking at me from behind the desk. She's been at my side since day 1, 15 years ago. Best studio dog ever. #behindthebrand #studiodog

What was your favorite book when you were a kid? Do the lessons still ring true?

How do you like to relax? I like to take a long hot bath filled with a brightly coloured bath bomb from Lush, my favourite book, and a drink. I even have one of those over the bath caddy/shelf things! It's amazing!!

What makes everything better for you? Are any of you out there planning weddings or events and needing to take a little break? Sometimes, it's a great idea to get out of the house, breathe in some fresh air and enjoy a fresh pot of tea and cake(s). Happy Planning everyone :-D x

Over the years I have had several hobbies which help me relax.  But my current favourites things to do are reading a good book, then going to my great book club and talking about it with wine and cake.⠀
⠀
But the thing I love to do most is spend time with my lovely husband dancing.  We do Ballroom and Latin and have for the last 3 years with @drapersdance (B also goes there). But every Friday night we meet up with this glam bunch and dance.  Completely different and we love it!⠀

One of the first photos of ‘la maille aux tableaux ‘, one of those moments when things suddenly became clear.  We need this kind of instant from time to time in many aspects of our lives, don’t we?

This is how I like to relax- walking in the countryside and woodland with my little mischief maker!

Dear to my heart, as it's my birthstone, I've always been a sucker for a good aquamarine specimen. Aquamarine crystals with accenting Muscovite blades on Albite from Chumar Bakhoor, Northern Pakistan.
