Start Wedding Planning on National Proposal Day!

Today, March 20th is National Proposal Day, a day that celebrates the idea of love and marriage by recognizing the proposal part of the equation.

Whether you got a proposal today, Valentine’s Day, or any other special day in recent weeks, you may be basking in the excitement but your brain is thinking about all the things that you need to start planning.

Most wedding planning starts months in advance, and that includes designing and ordering your wedding flowers.

That’s where we can come in and take a lot of the work off your hands so you can focus on all the other aspects without having to worry if your flowers will look as you planned and if everything will be perfect on the big day.

Our floral design and wedding consultation team at our Long Beach flower shop created a dedicated wedding flower and event website that is full of content and pictures that can help you decide what you want as well as see what we have done for others in terms of quality, creativity, and value.

To help you with budgeting, the wedding flower website also lists wedding flower packages that illustrate just how much you can get for your money and provides an estimate of what it will cost.

Of course, we can do all custom wedding flower orders as well for bouquets, the wedding party, wedding ceremony and reception, and the cake.

You can also benefit from the numerous wedding tips and wedding traditions we have listed on the website to help you with all aspects of the wedding planning process.

With all the planning you will do, you can then sit back, relax, and enjoy the day.

For more information, be sure to schedule your free wedding consultation today for your upcoming wedding.
