When in doubt, order ahead


Posted By on Feb 25, 2011

With wedding season right around the corner, I know a lot of brides-to-be and wedding planners alike are doing some research for your upcoming weddings. If you decide to go the DIY flower route and choose Blooms By The Box to supply you with fresh flowers here’s a huge tip: Submit your order in advance! “Why?”, you may ask, well…

1.) You’re able to check something off of your long list of things to do while planning a wedding. Ultimately, giving you some temporary peace of mind until you move on to the next thing on your list.

2.) We charge your credit card when you submit your order, so if you’re on a budget, there’s no room for overspending.

3.) Ordering ahead guarentees that we will have what you need when you need it. So, you help us out too! (And we very much appreciate that!!)

So, make sure to keep these three things in mind when planning to order flowers :).

Even before Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their nuptials, everyone was infatuated with Princess Diana. But now as we all await the highly anticipated royal wedding, it is obviously fitting that this particular wedding garment is the most famous dress in not just England, but the entire world!

This morning Princess Diana’s gown from her 1981 wedding to Prince Charles visited New York City where it made an appearance on NBC’s “Today Show”.  The dress itself is made of six different fabrics — including 25 yards of silk taffeta, 100 yards of tulle crinoline, and 150 yards of netting for the veil — which made its London designers, David and Elizabeth Emanuel, famous. As expected, the fashion industry is anxious to see who Catherine Middleton will choose to create her wedding dress, which of course will be an instant icon from the moment it’s seen, just as it happened 30 years ago for Princess Diana.

Announced just last week,  Google launched a full fledged planning portal for brides-to-be not surprisingly entitled… Google Weddings! Gone are the days of “googling” to find the best site/vendor to create your wedding website and make your save-the-dates. With Google Weddings, it’s all in one place 🙂 so it definitely makes your wedding planning experience a lot less stressful (and might I add a lot more organized). Oh, and it gets even better! They offer wedding-specific and customizable templates in Google Sites, Google Docs, and Picnik for planning materials, invitations, and much, much more. In Google Docs, for instance, you have the ability to access and edit your planning documents from your venue, your bridal shop, the bakery, or pretty any vendor involved in your wedding! How convenient is that?!

Personally, my favorite aspect of Google Weddings is the photo editing and personal announcements from Picnik where you can create save-the-dates, engagement announcements, and so much more!

So, if you’re in the beginnings or even in the midst of planning your wedding I have a funny feeling that www.google.com/weddings will be at the top your bookmarks ;). Happy planning!

Wedding Flower Inspiration


Posted By on Feb 21, 2011

With spring hopefully around the corner, I thought I’d start out this week with what I hope to be a weekly post on the Blooms Blog – a wedding flower themed inspiration board.  So, here it is… introducing my first board entitled “Think Pink” and made via Style Me Pretty, obviously inspired by pink florals.  Not too shabby, right?

Always a Bridesmaid…


Posted By on Feb 18, 2011

Thanks to comedic genius Judd Apatow and director Paul Feig, a new comedy is going to hit theaters this spring called “Bridesmaids”. According to some internet buzz, the plot is based around two women vying to plan their friend’s wedding party. That plus two of SNL’s funniest ladies in the cast – sounds like a recipe for some laughs.
