And with so much coming at us constantly – from social media to the news – it’s no wonder that it’s easy to get caught up in what’s trendy as opposed to being innovative. In this week’s episode of the This Week In Weddings podcast, we’re chatting with an industry veteran about being your own inspiration and keeping the creativity alive.
