@Genesee:

I live 45 minutes away, March is pretty good month especially since you are getting married in the desert?

Glad to hear I live in Inland empire, and I love it since I am close by to LA and can go to the Floral and GArment district to buy my wedding supplies.

PM if you like

Hello….I live in palm springs area.  You picked a nice time in the desert to get married. Its not super hot  In March yet.  Right now its 103 degrees.  So definately you dont want to do it from late may-june onward.  That would horrible for you and your guests.

I am getting married in Palm Springs on October 10 of this year so the weather should be sweet.

Have you chosen a location/venue?  What’s the name and how many people in your party?

I also live about 45 mins from P.S. You picked a gorgeous time of year! Loulee is correct, it won’t be hot in the least; but it may still be chilly in the evening.

Hello genesse.  I pretty sure you cant go wrong with any of the hotels downtown.  They are all pretty cool.  150 sounds like you have probably been very busy:)

I, doing it in a Bed and BReakfast near to the mountain behind the Starbucks downtown.  It a cute intimate garden setting.  My count is presently at 60.

 

Hello Ms caramia.  Hope your planning is going well…. We are date twins.  How large is your wedding going to be?

@Loulee: Everything is going well so far. I’m very anxious to get the invites out, but it probably won’t be for another 2 weeks or so :-/ We are inviting 172 people…not small, but not too huge either. What about you?? Care to share details: cake, colors, centerpieces, etc?

CaraMia10:  Our is small about 70 people.  Our colors are white/champagne and the bridal party is purple.  Centerpieces will be just floaral arrangments.

Have not sent invites out either.  Will get to it soon.  Presently looking for wedding bands in LA Gold district and looking for MOG dress.   Also looking for a white party dress for me.

Do you think it would be a bad idea to get a purple party dress, but have it look completely different than my girls.  Lots of people are telling me that its a bad idea and that I really should do white or ivory.  But golly gheeze, its been really hard trying to find a white party salsa dress that doesnt look like for a 12 year old.

Anyway, will keep looking.  hope your planning is going ok.  Based on your last entry, your invites should be all out…..

@Loulee: About the dress, do it! I’ve seen wedding shows (Lord knows I watch my share) where the bride is in bright, beautiful, comfy after-ceremony attire. I don’t think it’s in bad taste at all, and of course you’ll be way more comfortable. I also was thinking of getting a different dress for the reception, but budget wise I just don’t see that happening.

On a different note, we will finally be sending our invites out tomorrow! I am SO excited, I can hardly stand it.

Genesee: if I remember correctly you are coming from loma linda….I think you are going to find better prices out where you live.  Palm Springs vendor costs are ridiculous unless you go to INDIO…where there’s not as many “five star” type places. PS is a price town along with Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, La Quinta etc….The mentality here is that everyone has lots of money. 

So far the best floral prices are in the flower district in LA….hands down.  

Even food, Originally I thought to do just appetizers and I was quoted from PS caterers 2000 dollars for just a few appetizers.  I ultimately decided for that price to go with a full meal buffet style.  I found a caterer in La Habra who is giving me a price of 3200 for a buffet style meal.   Ultimately the closest match I found for exactly the same items was a PS caterer charging me 3900 and I checked with quite a few PS Caterers.  

Photographer….a couple of PS Photog averaged 3800 starting for the most basic packages. I ultimately  found an experience reputable photog out of 29 Palms/Yucca Valley for 2000 whose albums looked way better than anything the 3800 dollar photogs had and ultimately provided more hours of coverage and a second photographer.

My advice is to stay clear of PS Vendors…..unless money is not an obstacle for you and you can splurge a little….otherwise, you will feel it.
