We’d like to talk about time. Especially for those who are thinking there’s plenty of it.

Think about it … as of right now, how much ‘spare’ time do you have in any given week?


Between work & household demands, possibly children and/or pets, and all the day to day things that get in front of you when you least expect it, how much time do you really have to devote to planning a big event like a wedding or party? 2 hours a week? 3 if you’re lucky? Now put that together with the fact that you have at least 5 major vendors (venue, caterer, dj, flowers & cake) to contact, meet with, narrow down choices and contract with. Then include finding either a wedding gown and/or fancy dress, suits, shoes, for yourself and possibly additional family members or friends. And what about all the smaller items, but no less important ones such as invitations, specialty linens if you’re choosing to have them, favors, hair appointments and a million other little things that you may need to acquire and/or do?

Now… think again. How much time do you really have?


It’s less than you think.

And what’s more, in many cases during all that time you thought you had before really getting down to business with your planning & search, those vendors you want, will have booked up before you ever started your interview process. So now you’re left scrambling! Or it’s so close to your date that the items you wanted/needed to get have to be substituted for a second choice because the things you REALLY wanted are  no longer available.

We two girls can tell you…the worst feeling when trying to plan a big event, is that of feeling pressured. The best feeling is knowing that you’ve got a plan of action, a time frame in which to do everything and the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve gotten everything done with time to spare.

So, how much time do you think you have in which to put everything in place for your big day?  Not as much as you think.  How early should you start planning for your event? Start now!

Now plan some time for a wholesale flower filled day!

Show Me Da Flowers!

Yes.. It’s wedding season! And that means LOTS of wedding shows and opportunities to meet some of your local floral designers, see their flower creations, as well as, meet many other wedding vendors. All of them in one place!

Our recent ‘Party It Forward’ show was held at the lovely Quail Hollow in Wesley Chapel! We had lots of guests and brides-to-be come and check out their beautiful venue and visit our exclusive Party It Forward area to buy items from past hosts!

Brides N Blooms Designs smWe will  be getting another one off the ground this summer and will keep you abreast of the details. So stay tuned….

Coming up in a week we’ll be at the beautiful Beso Del Sol, Wedding on the Water Show! Sunday March 29th  from 1-5:00 pm. If you are looking for a venue with a spectacular view of the water, this is a great choice! We’ll be showcasing the popular fall color palette and an array of beautiful centerpieces, bouquets!

beso showBeso Del Sol is located just north of the downtown Dunedin area along Bayshore Blvd.

And last but certainly not least!! We will be at the Carrollwood Country Club Wedding show! Monday, April 27th from 6-9:00 PM! We will be showcasing some unique and popular wedding floral designs for you to come and see!

Carrollwood showThis venue is a hidden treasure in the North Tampa Area and well worth the visit! They are located at: 13903 Clubhouse Dr, Tampa, FL 33618

These are both smaller, more intimate shows…which we really like because we get to connect better with YOU! There’s more time to really talk with attendees and get a feel for what their needs, likes, and wants are!

We hope you’ll come and visit us at one of these two shows… or both! Say hi and let us know how we can become your personal connection to all things floral!

Now go out and have yourself a flower-filled, show stopping day!
