So far I have been speaking with Laura of Alladin Flowers in Indio 760-347-3679.  She has not yet shown me a sample of anything.  We have not really finalized what we want and I am still looking for inspirational photos to show her. I cant give you figures, but shes been really sweet and patient with us.  I know she’ll beat PS florists hands down.  

As I get closer to narrowing my buds down, Ill let you know, shoot me Private email if you like around mid september…..and ill tell you what the numbers look like for what i am wanting.

Good luck.

We also had better luck using vendors outside of PS.  Our caterer and florist were from LA, photographers from OC, DJ from SD.  Since our wedding date was high season in PS, but low season in LA/OC/SD, we saved a TON of money using outside vendors.  The extra price we paid for travel expenses didn’t compare to the additional money we would have spent using the PS vendors we found.

I tried going with someone who was supposed to get me a quote and put a contract together after showing her my venue and spending a couple of hours with her.  She then did not get back to me after three weeks.  When I finally pinned her down, it almost sounded like she did not remember me and her only exucuse was that she was working on two other larger weddings.  I fired her.

I ultimately went with a friend who used to do event planning and will be doing my day of coordination for no charge.  I just met with her yesterday and went to the venue together to show her what i had in mind.  I have total confidence in her and am sure she will make sure everything runs smooth.  I will get her  a nice gift card to a steak house as my thank you.

Good luck with finding a day of coordinator.  

I am getting my invitations today.  Drop a line on your planning genesse.

Hope things are going well for all the Palm Springs Brides out there.   CHEER CHEER!

Can you say who your photog is?  I used to live in YV, I’m curious.  There are some good people up there, but as a rule, I went down the hill to the Palm Springs area for services, the hi dez people are often not very professional.  Hope you good some solid references.

Sorry I didn’t write back sooner, I was busy getting married (haha)…..

My photographer was Graphicon Studio Photographers….. Jean Paul.  He was great.  Really professional and easy to work with.  An friend of mine also used him for her wedding and i saw her album which was super awesome. His prices were reasonable for an album, and a second photographer and I have absolutely no complaints about him.  

For Makeup I used a totally awesome gal….her name is Tate, she is so bubbly, patient and has a full line of MAC products. She was super clean and organized. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone….. She also lived out of YV.

Send me a private message if you’d like their numbers…..as for Graphicon, you can look that up online……

I had absolutely no complaints and believe me, coming from me, that is a amazing….I am a very picky person.

I’ll download some photos as soon as I get my hands on them

Tate was awesome, came early, was bubbly, very organized, patient, and cleaned each brush in between each girl.  She had a great sense of humor, was down to earth and easy to talk to.  She was great. 

Cheetah: the flowers with Alladin, were great.  Here’s a couple ‘a photos….

@Loulee:

Thanks for this post! I was quoted an insane amount for catering from the Ace Hotel (which has GREAT food, but still, it was like 20K for the food and beverage). Seems like the best bet is to secure as many vendors as possible from outside PS.

However I am worried about hairstylists, did your same makeup person handle the hair for your day? 

Thanks again!

Hey girls!

 

I am getting married in the Joshua Tree park in October 2012, and we are staying in Palm Springs. I am also hoping to get referrals for hair and make up 🙂 I can’t help but worry that I will hire someone and they just won;t show up or something…….

@ whatsthatcat:

I had another person handle my hair. While the bridesmaids were getting makeup done I did my hair and then I did makeup after all the girls were done. It went pretty smoothly.
