Now THAT’S what I call a package!

This post is about how awesome it is to check out packages in Palm Springs.  Get your mind out of the gutter – we’re talking WEDDING packages in Palm Springs. Goodness gracious people, did you think we were pandering to grab attention for the blog or something?
Wedding Packages: does the very idea strike fear in your heart? The old image of picking wedding elements off a Chinese restaurant style menu is behind the times. Face it – who wants the phrase “columns A, B and C” anywhere near the most special day of your life? But the concept is a good one, as it simplifies the planning process, and eases your mind. Imagine: having a built-in group of top notch wedding professionals who enjoy working together collaborate to make your day beautiful and seamless at a discount – sign me up, right?
For destination weddings, and we do have a lot of destination weddings in Palm Springs and the surrounding areas, the package can be a lifesaver for a bride who is across the country or across the world.  Even with the internet, doing the legwork required to find Coachella Valley wedding vendors is daunting and an all-inclusive wedding package will save a lot of time, not to mention money.
Show me the Money!
People ask, do packages really save money?  The answer is YES! In our case, we team up with our favorite salon, photographers, venues, etc. and agree that everyone offers a deal in order to be a part of the team. You’re guaranteed overall savings – not just on one element of your celebration, and you’re spared the haggling. Also consider what the peace of mind is worth to you – and the free time you’ll have to focus on the more fun parts of being engaged.
Book a Class Act
When looking for a wedding package, look for groups of top local vendors that you can screen on review sites like Yelp. Your contact should give you information on the professional they’ll be working with, and set up at least one conference call (for destination brides)or a one-on-one meeting. If they won’t, walk away. If there’s one vendor you’re not comfortable with but you like everyone else, ask your contact if they have other options for that category.  Likely, they’ll be able to accommodate you.

Proms, Moms and Automobiles. No, that’s no good. Hmmmm.

The title will continue to evolve.  In any case, we’re celebrating Moms and Proms this weekend at My Little Flower Shop. (A wedding too – note to self- order more white roses). Moms across the Valley (and the country!) will fill with pride, watching their kids stepping out on the town in their prom dresses and tuxedos.  Wait, they’ll be stepping into…Automobiles!  Hey! How about that! OK, a stretch. Back to the drawing board on the title.
What did your Mom whisper to you on your way out the door?  Here’s a distillation of some advice and wisdom My Little Flower Shop staff gleaned from our wise Moms once upon a time.  Feel free to pass any and all along to your little darlings for Prom Night 2011, in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, or all across these United States.
Behave like a young lady/gentleman at dinner.  The other patrons of the restaurant aren’t paying to have dinner with a bunch of rowdy teenagers.
-Be polite to your date. You asked them/accepted the invitation for a reason. Don’t abandon them at a table and run off to be with your friends.
-Please don’t roll your eyes at Mom when she take lots of pictures. You’re going to love having them someday, so smile and have fun for the camera.
-Don’t do anything you’re not comfortable with, or let anyone push you too far. Carry enough cash for cab fare home, and you’ll always have an “out.”
Last but not least…
– Make memories. As Lee Ann Womack (also a Mom) put it so well:
“And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Celebrate your prom!
