Well friends, I’m wary of sharing too much information here, or too many photos, but I just have to say–Chris and I both LOVED Palm Springs. It was absolutely everything I had hoped it would be, and I am beyond excited to get married there!
It’s beautiful. The people are so nice. There is so much to do.
It’s exactly the type of place we were looking for. Here’s a little bit of what we saw this past weekend:
Well folks–what do you think? It’s pretty … pretty, right?!
By the way, I’d be remiss if I didn’t at least mention the havoc that was our trip on Thursday. After barely making it back to the apartment by 1 to meet Chris at our appointed time (this, my friends, is because it took me AN HOUR to arrive by bus to my apartment, all of 80 blocks from my point of origin), we made it to LaGuardia. After loading our plane to Dallas for our connecting flight (and being placed in AWESOME seats in the first row behind first class), we were quickly de-planed after it was announced to us that the air conditioning wasn’t working on the plane, and they needed to fix it with us off the plane.
Once back in the terminal, we realized that, with the delay, we would never catch our connecting flight in Dallas to Palm Springs, and that flight turned out to be the last out of Dallas to Palm Springs for the night.
Also, the earliest flight on Friday morning would not allow us to get in with enough time to make our first two appointments–meeting the wedding planner, seeing the destination venue and meeting the DJ.
All very important things.
To make a long story short (sort of), we ended up getting a car service (thank you American Airlines) from LaGuardia to JFK, where a flight was leaving at 7 directly to Los Angeles. Then, in LA, we had to rent a car and drive the 2 1/2 hours to Palm Springs.
Needless to say, we arrived–tired and starving and not a little cranky–at our hotel in Palm Springs at around 3 a.m. on Friday morning.
At least our stewardess has been amazing. She loved the fact that Chris and I were engaged, and gave us champagne before the flight took off, then a full bottle before we got off the plane.
That nearly made it all worth it 😉
Bis bald, friends!

If you ever have that happen you can fly into Ontario Airport, rent the car and about an hour drive to PS,easier airport accessibility, miss downtown LA traffic. It is usually cheaper to fly into Ontario also. Good luck with the wedding. You may also want to check out Desert Hot Springs. It is usually a smaller crowd and you can’t go wrong with hot mineral pools, spas, massages, etc.
Thanks so much for the advice! We’ll definitely think about that for next time (should there be a next time!)
