Ready, Set, Honeymoon!

Getting ready for a trip, I’m reminded of all the planning that went in to our honeymoon even in the midst of wedding prep.  I remember packing and unpacking, realizing our suitcases were too heavy, trying on shoes for comfort, and buying special electrical converters. Somehow through the fog of dress fittings and table arrangements, we managed to spend some quality time packing for our adventure. And it was fun!

If possible, reclaim a little time to plan together for those unforeseen honeymoon moments: when someone catches a cold, or your elegant clothes are soaked by a sudden downpour. Traveling together as newlyweds is in many ways a microcosm of life – and it’s priceless to know that you’ve got a steadfast partner by your side, to hold your hand as you explore and discover new places both around the world and within yourselves.

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts

We hope you don’t need this post because ideally you’ve called us, and we’ve taken care of beautiful flowers, candy and a gift for your Valentine. (You can still call, do it now. 760-778-7111) BUT …what if you <gasp> waited until it was too late to get flowers? (Yikes! don’t do that! Call us now!)  If all the stores are closed, what’s a lover to do? Have no fear, try these three standbys from your local 24 hour drugstore or grocery. They have many items that look great with the right paper and bows.

1) Chocolate: nothing beats a big Toblerone bar. Tie a big red ribbon around the gold triangular package, and it’s welcome anywhere

2) Wine or spirits: many grocery stores are stocking decent wine selections these days. Go for a producer you know in the $10+ price range. Insider tip- check the sale flyer in the front of the store- all their wine & liquor sales info is there, and you could score a great deal.

3) For the Valentine who doesn’t like chocolate or wine, check out the natural/organic skin care area, specifically hand lotion. Nine times out of ten there will be pretty, high-end looking scented lotion in the $8-10 range. Go for an herbal scent like lavender or lemon verbena over the berry stuff.

Whatever you choose, definitely hit up the gift wrap aisle, or if you’re super smart, buy some gift bags at the dollar store and put then on your car trunk for emergencies.  And of course, if you’re reading this in advance, as we’ve mentioned, your very best bet is to call us now and let us put together a beautiful arrangement and box of chocolates for you.  We can be reached at 760-778-7111.

Good luck romancing tomorrow!

Be well, and love well

Matchy Matchy – Stationery is the One Place Where It Works

We try to avoid the “matchy matchy” phenomenon in our fashion & design lives – and especially weddings. But invitations & the assorted stationery that comes along with it is somewhere you can feel comfortable going with a theme. Wedding Paper Divas has product lines that go from invitation to website and keep you looking unified all the way through. You order only what you need, no obligation to buy, say, menu cards if you don’t want them.

Take a look! And make your match.
