Eden Florist Provides Flowers for Preview of THE PROPOSAL


A week ago Ellen Burton, Publisher of Duo Magazine (and a dear friend of mine) called and asked if I wanted to participate in the media event for the new movie, THE PROPOSAL. I said, “Absolutely!” The event took place last evening at Muvico in Pembroke Pines. It included a Fashion Show, an after party and a pre-screening of the movie. Several hundred people arrived for the event, including women in wedding gowns, men in tuxedos (the fashionistas), the media (Deco Drive was on the scene) and the event planners from Disney.  I was so excited and honored to be a play a very small part in making it happen. Here are some pictures of the event complete with quickly assembled hand-held wedding bouquets. We put together very light, summer flowers that would not require the bride to worry about the bouquet as she greets her guests and admirers.

According to a review by the Sun-Sentinel “The Proposal won’t catch any bouquets for originality, but in terms of a bended-knee pitch for the affections of women — including Ryan Reynolds’ boyish charms, a hip granny and even a beyond-adorable puppy — this romantic comedy pretty much pulls out all the stops.” You can read about it and see a trailer of the movie here: http://www.sun-sentinel.com/features/lifestyle/sfl-the-proposal-review-g061909pbjun19,0,630213.story.

Marriage proposal on the Brooklyn Bridge


 
You may have heard about the marriage proposal that took place Saturday (Feb 28) on the Brooklyn Bridge ~ 
According to Jill “My brother proposed to his girlfriend on the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday. The plan was to have people hand balloons to her as they walked across the bridge, each with a note from my brother attached. It was so cute. We had a few friends help but mostly recruited strangers as they walked in their direction. She said yes!”

WEDDINGS STILL GOING STRONG IN A DOWN ECONOMY


According to the Perfect Wedding Guide a downturn in the economy won’t stop the bride to be! 

Even though the economy has influenced spending habits slightly, the wedding industry is strong!  Wedding experts predict a 9.5% increase in the number of weddings over the next 12 years. 

Even though the economy has influenced spending habits slightly, the wedding industry is strong!  Wedding experts predict a 9.5% increase in the number of weddings over the next 12 years. 

 

However, Brides are much more price concious than ever.  The wedding gown is a perfect example of what I mean. My last 3 Brides-to-be shared with me that they looked for “bargains” when it came to major purchases such as their wedding gowns.

Although they may have wanted designer gowns, they opted for “off the rack,” or discounted gowns. One bride found the gown she wanted at a local salon and then searched online until she found it for less money and quicker delivery.  Another bride waited until a local bridal store was having a big sale, lined up outside the store until it opened and then found the “almost perfect dress.” Although she said it wasn’t her first choice, she was happy with her selection because it cost a fraction of what she would have paid 2 years ago.

And the third bride told me she looked online at eBay. She found the perfect gown customized to her size and she got it in 5 weeks time (from China). I told her my eBay story about how I too found the perfect gown from China. The shipping cost more than the dress! That was in 2007. I got the perfect gown to go with the perfect husband! 

I asked my brides why they chose Eden Florist for their wedding flowers and they each said because they had been recommended, saw my work and knew we wouldn’t overcharge them because it was a wedding.  In fact, one bride came from Palm Beach to order her flowers because she told me her florist wanted about 25% more than I did for basically the same things.

 So if you are planning to get married soon, be sure to give Eden Florist a call
