Q: How can I make the bridal bouquet stand out from the bridesmaids' bouquets? A: It's important that your bouquet stand out from the blooms your bridesmaids carry—it is, after all, your day! The best way to do this is to think of the bridal bouquet as the centerpiece and the bridesmaid bouquets as accents or the supporting cast of flowers. “We recommend having the bridesmaids' bouquets frame and complement the bridal bouquet," says Ricardo Luna of Luna Gardens Events in Los Angeles. With that in mind, there are several ways you can go about creating the perfect bride and bridesmaid bouquet combination. Read More Here

Bridesman Duties: Everything Your Man of Honor Needs to Know Welcome to 2015, the year where it's finally so not weird to have your best guy friend, brother or business partner stand by your side on your big day. But how do you include a dude in your bridal party without making him feel like "one of the girls"? After all, he might be a little uncomfortable with all the traditional duties of a bridesmaid or maid of honor. As wedding planner Sandy Malone of Weddings in Vieques points out, a "bridesman" (often referred to as one of the bride's attendants), isn't in charge of helping with getting the bride beautiful. "In fact, he's usually not very welcome in a room full of half-dressed women the day-of and doesn't want to be there anyway," she notes. "It's much better to assign him reasonable tasks that still make your day run more smoothly without creating an awkward factor for anyone." Um, we concur! Read More Here
Love is in the Air: Valentine's Day Ideas With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, there are a gazillion ways to make the day extra special. Flowers, chocolate, dinner and champagne all enhance the romance of the day. But I was blown away to read in a recent New York Post article that some guys are feeling immense “pressure to show passion” and forking over huge sums of money on flowers — anywhere from $1,000 up to $25,000 — to prove their love. I’m sure you’ll agree that unless you’re a 1-percenter, spending that kind of money is way too over the top. I reached out to floral designer Ricardo Luna, owner and CEO of Los Angeles-based Luna Gardens Events for a few tips on choosing gorgeous flowers that don’t cost a bundle. Ricardo cautions that roses can be very expensive as some wholesalers mark them up two to three times. “The best way to avoid added costs is to show them you love them with tulips, hydrangeas, calla lilies and fresh spring flowers,” says Ricardo.
