Friday is Advice for the Bride-Day! 3 Tips to ensure you enjoy your wedding this weekend.

We love Fridays at My Little Flower Shop! Gearing up for weekend weddings and parties gets us fired up.  Ad so we’re taking to the blog to FIRE UP this weekend’s brides and grooms with a little pep talk. Here are a few pointers as you head into the big weekend you’ve been waiting for!

  • Let it All Go. You’ve planned and plotted – and it’s finally here.  This is the moment to take a deep breath and trust yourself, your family and the people you’ve hired to bring your dream day to life.  The work is done, and what will happen will happen.  At a certain point any event takes on a life of its own, and trying to control it from the position of Bride or Groom is only going to make you crazy.

    If you trust your family and your vendors, everything will turn out beautifully.
  • Laugh When Things Go “Wrong.” There’s gonna be a hitch.  It may be small, it may be huge, but it’s going to be the story you’ll tell through the years, howling with laughter at the absurdity. Why not start laughing now and save yourself a lot of heartache? Holding on to the bitterness of a wrongly ruffled cake all evening hurts no one but you and your new husband/wife.
  • Breathe Deeply, Stand Up Straight, and Enjoy Your Moment. ‘Nough said.

See you on the flip side as Mr. and Mrs!

Live well, and love well.


Thank You for Creating Our Dream Wedding! A Walk-In-Florists’-Shoes Inspired Moment of Gratitude.

It is high wedding season here in Palm Springs! And inside My Little Flower Shop, the bouquets, boutonnières and centerpieces are flying. As a team member at MLFS, my participation is usually electronic. But this weekend found me riding shotgun in the My Little Flower Shop truck, spray bottle loaded and ribbon scissors at the ready.

At the end of the day, having dropped off and set up flowers for three different weddings, I was zonked as we celebrated Cinco De Mayo at the lobby bar (El Jefe) of the ever-so-colorful Saguaro Hotel.  I wasn’t just celebrating the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France, I was celebrating the victory of sitting down.  (BTW, Saguaro folks, that weird banquette thing in the front of the bar could use a little more cush for the tush).

So where am I going with this? I want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You see, I am a My Little Flower Shop bride.  Not only did they do the flowers, but were our event planners ensuring our beautiful day was flawless (see the album below). Yesterday I saw only a snapshot of how hard the team works.  We thanked Greg and Al on our wedding day, but this experience taught me to thank My Little Flower Shop over and over, whenever I can. There is no such thing as “too grateful.”

Live well, and love well.



PS – Thanks to all the Wedding Warriors who made Friday’s Dream Wedding possible! You guys are AWESOME!
