After the Proposal Comes the Planning

Today, March 20th, is National Proposal Day, a day that recognizes all those proposals of marriage out there that involved love, thinking, and a few nerves. Now that the engagement is underway, you are starting to think about what to do for your wedding. While you may need to think about the dress, venue, menu and other details, another huge part of any wedding are the wedding flowers – something that adds to the ambiance and feel plus is deeply symbolic. You will want to tie your own preferences and overall design idea for your wedding together with the flowers you select plus you’ll most likely need to stay on budget. That’s why we have a special team in our San Diego flower shops dedicated to handling weddings, working on a one-on-one basis with brides and their families to put together the best flower choices available for a wedding. Our desire to make this special day as memorable as possible is also the reason why we decided to offer a special wedding flower website separately from our regular flower website. It allows us to deliver regularly updated content, including new wedding flower pictures for our gallery plus more tips and

Wedding Traditions Past and Present

Weddings are looked at by men and women alike as their biggest day -- the day they quit going at the world alone and start a family and take on the world together. And, the biggest day of your life doesn’t just happen. There is the preparation, the wedding itself, the reception and hopefully an open bar. The bride tosses the bouquet and the groom bites the garter and throws it and, of course, they smash cake into each other's faces, which is far more amusing if there is an open bar. These are examples of today's wedding traditions, but from where do they hail? Why do we do what we do and were they done differently before? In a word, yes.
