I'm in Orange County and NEED Manzanita

My daughter has her precious heart set on Manzanita branches with looped crystals, hanging votives and dendrobium orchids running up the branches.  Her colors are Black and Ivory with just a splash of red...like in the shoes.


Manzanita is really expensive.  Her wedding is September 12, 2009.  Anyone going to want to sell at least 48" branches?  She's having 20 tables.  Shipping them isn't cheap so I'm seriously looking for some in the OC.  I'll be spending upwards of $800-$1,000 on just the branches...not exactly what I want to be doing! 


If not, I know that Sept. 13th they'll be for sale...LOL!

Marina doesn't seem to be answering these days.  I've written to her, PM'd her and finally "dirty" said that she was overwhelmed.  Then, last night i read that she had a miscarriage.  I don't want to bother her anymore...but thanks.  Any others????

Yes, go to the crafts store in LA. The huge Michael's like store...Moskatels.  They have 3-4 different sizes. I got one that is about 3 feet tall for $28!  I thought that was a darn good deal.

If you are still looking for manzanita you can message me. I am going to be doing a bunch for my own wedding. I live in the mountains in central california and have literally hundreds of manzanita trees on my property. I'm getting married on May 23rd and would be willing to part with them afterward.


The crazy thing is, just last year we pruned and shaped quite a few of the trees that are in the front of our property and burned a couple truck loads worth of manzanita. Not until I started planning my wedding did I even know that there was a demand for it.

I am a local OC Wedding planner and happened to recently work with a company near H.B. who makes/sells them, their gorgeous! Lifetime Weddings & Events in Westminster is a great company to work with (www.lifetimewedding.com). The ones they create are beautiful and they even go a step further since they also do florals (they can include flowers and hanging crystals from them). They recently sent me a very reasonable price quote from them my June wedding that included the design, setup, and deliverey (yours to keep - including the extra decor). If you would like to know more specifics, feel free to contact me. Best of luck! Also, check out this blog for more fun ideas: www.InspireTheBride.com
