Sideways is probably the best written, most brilliantly acted version of the classic “bachelor party gone awry” plot you‘ll ever see. Set in the beautiful wine country around Santa Barbara, CA, two men muddle through discovering themselves before one of them gets married.  Hugely popular when it came out, Sideways won an Academy Award for screenwriting, and was nominated for a handful of others. This is one wedding movie everyone will enjoy. Best served with a chardonnay.


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.

Why engaged women should get to know Anderson Cooper

If you turn on the nightly news, sometimes it can seem overwhelming. There’s so much going on, and a great deal of it is about pain, conflict and disappointment. So why on earth would you want to stay in the loop at a happy time when you’re planning a wedding? Here are three good reasons.

1) just because you’re planning a ceremony and a party doesn’t mean you’re no longer a member of your community, or a citizen of the world. Keep at least one ear out for what’s going on outside of the World Wide Wedisphere.

2) building on 1, not everybody wants to hear the latest developments in your wedding centerpiece development. It’s handy to be conversant in what the rest of the world’s been up to.

3) and building on 2, your friends and family will be so grateful that there are non wedding thoughts in your head. Try bringing up other topics of conversation- watch the relief spread across the dinner table.

Live well, and love well.
