My Big Fat…Korean Wedding? NEW WEDDING MOVIE! Wedding Palace

Nothing like a new wedding movie to get me all jazzed! I’m going to have to find this one in a local theater so I can do a proper review on the blog.  But the preview looks awesome. Check it out!

Find A Palm Springs Wedding Florist You Love!

With some wedding florists, the planning experience feels like “leave a wedding at the beep.” They ask about wedding colors, time, date, and if you’re lucky, flowers you like. My Little Flower Shop veers away from a more traditional, by the numbers wedding planning consultation.  We (gasp) listen. Another florist might ask, “what flowers do you like?” and take down b75“lily, rose.”  We notice whether or not a couple knows flowers, and talk about new ones they might love. A bouquet shouldn’t be limited to flowers a person can name – this isn’t a botany quiz. If you aren’t a Palm Springs florist, how would you know that succulents are gorgeous in a desert wedding bouquet? We’re here to see your ideas, help get them out of your head and into a beautiful wedding. We want to know you, not just your colors. So do leave a voice mail if you call, but know that you’ll be in for a nice long chat.  Don’t leave your wedding at the beep!

Live well, and love well.

What Wedding Problems Drive Planners Crazy?

Biz Bash, an event industry trade paper, recently ran a piece on what drives PR and corporate planners crazy at parties they attend.  Amy Sacco, founding partner and creative director, LDV Hospitality Nightlife, listed four points, three of which translated so well into wedding world, I had to share. Today, we cover Amy Sacco’s irritant number one* in the next few days, on to the next two.

When events are pitched as intimate or exclusive and then you find guests’ assistants there

 It doesn’t take a lot of creativity to translate this one into the wedding experience.

A couple explains their tiny, intimate wedding and matching brutally small head count. The venue only holds so many people, or there are budget issues, and that’s why the guest list is so lean, and you can’t bring your fiancé. Apologies are made, and tears are shed.

Who's coming?

Who’s coming?

Your tears dry pretty quickly, though, on wedding day when you’re seated with the bride’s sister’s boyfriend’s mother.  You think I’m kidding don’t you?  This happened to me.  The bride’s sister-in-law’s brother and her parents were there too.  My boyfriend of three years sat at home.  The upshot? I had a crappy time at that wedding, and remember it as an unpleasant experience to this day.

The Fix:

Guest List Diplomacy. Think a little before you cross someone off or decide on your “plus ones.”  You could be changing a dear friend or relative’s experience of your wedding completely for the benefit of your father’s chiropractor.  This is your day, but do you want people to remember it as a miserable one?  Probably not.

Stay tuned for Amy’s next pet peeve, how it pertains to wedding planning, and how to avoid it!

Live well, and love well.

*Note. Amy’s Biz Bash quote started with this:

“I loathe the following, in no particular order…”  ergo this party fail is no more or less loathed than the others we will cover in the days to come.
