Stephanie & Rob Wedding – Bridesmaids Bouquets – Carousel Lighthouse Point – Sarma & Co.
When we first meet with our brides to discuss the design of their dream bouquet, they usually have one or two ‘go-to’ flowers in mind such as the garden rose, peony, or ranunculus. This is a great starting point, but rarely does a bouquet contain just one or two flowers. Rather, the colors, texture, and dimension that define a bouquet’s unique beauty are the result of major and secondary blooms in combination with fillers and greenery.
To help our readers better understand all the pretty details that go into assembling the perfect hand-held arrangement, we are sharing the floral recipes from our most ‘liked’ Real BB Wedding bouquets. Read More
Emma and Izzet Wedding – Greenery and Purple Bloom Low Centerpiece – Blue Hill at Stone Barns NY -Rebecca Yale Photography
We love cultivated floral decor. But heading into summer, we can’t help but fall under the spell of wildflowers. Charming, colorful, and natural, they add a fresh, carefree feel to the weddingscape. Your first assumption may be that wildflowers can only be used in ‘boho,’ ‘rustic,’ ‘country,’ or ‘organic’ decorative themes. But as you will see, wildflowers can be worked into just about every wedding style from clean and minimalist to classic and elegant. The big question here is, “How ‘wild’ do you want to go?” Keep in mind, you don’t have to make a full commitment to the theme. Adding just few wildflowers to more ‘traditional’ wedding blossoms is all that is needed to bring a sense of lighthearted joy to your big day. Read More
Brad and Manjil Wedding – Mandap – Studio 450 – Weddings By Two
Engagements and weddings are about celebrating the unique bond between two people. For LGBTQ+ couples, the idea of embracing existing wedding traditions may not feel right, like a true demonstration of their love and relationship. We believe your wedding should represent who you are, and you should in no way feel obligated to follow a certain set of rules. In fact, what makes these weddings so special is seeing couples put tradition aside to create a day full of genuine moments that are heartfelt expressions of their love and personality. Read More

Whether it was looking at a Rothko hanging on the wall at the Museum of Modern Art or receiving a hand-painted card from a friend, we all have felt the emotional power of art. For many couples, meaningful artistic experiences form an important foundation in their relationship, which evolves and deepens over time. Taking the next step in life together, they want art to be a part of their wedding celebration in some way. From the invitations to decor to the dress, there are many opportunities to put a creative punctuation mark on your big day. Culled from the Internet as well as our Real BB Wedding archives, here are art inspired wedding ideas we love, and know you will too!
Kate & Mark Wedding – Bridesmaids Bouquet pink blush ivory and greenery – Round Hill Club – Michael Justin Studios
You’ve finally decided on the dress and shoes, now it’s time to start thinking about the flowers that you’ll be carrying down the aisle. As the bride’s ultimate floral accessory, the wedding bouquet is the finishing touch on your big day look and should be chosen carefully. While we love a voluminous clutch of cascading blossoms and greenery, smaller bouquets have been catching our eye most recently. What these petite arrangements lack in stature, they more than make up with beauty and meaning. Unique, creative, and personal details become all the more important here. This is especially true as brides have had to reconsider their original vision because of COVID-19, and plan for a smaller, more intimate affair. Read More
When Jay Muse graduated from culinary school, he did what every aspiring pastry chef dreams about – he opened up a specialty bakery in New York City. “I just wanted to make muffins,” he says looking back. Cake wasn’t going to be a mainstay on the menu. Then one afternoon, a customer walked in and asked him to make a cake for her wedding. The rest is history.
Today, Jay is chef and partner of Lulu Cake Boutique in Scarsdale, NY. Headed by a dynamic team of bakers and designers with resumes that list Per Se, JoJo, and Auquavit, the award-winning bakery is sought after by couples who want their big day dessert to make a statement in style and taste. We’ve been fortunate to see Lulu Cake Boutique’s masterpieces in person, serving as the sweet punctuation mark on a handful of Real BB weddings. For these reasons and more, we couldn’t wait to interview Jay for our Industry Influencer series. Read More
