From the dress and shoes to hairstyle and manicure, every detail of the bride’s ensemble is an expression of her unique style. Personal expression is the one thing that we regular folk have in common with princesses, A-list actresses, and influencers when it comes to saying ‘I Do.’ Personal expression cannot be bought for a high price tag – it is part of you and comes from within.

While we love talking about gowns and accessories, nothing gets us more excited than the topic of wedding bouquets. We could go on for hours about the fresh, sophisticated romance of Priyanka Chopra’s ribbon accented arrangement. Since many of our clients have celebrity wedding photos pinned to their vision boards, we thought it would be fun to highlight the famous brides whose bouquets captured our eyes, hearts, and imaginations over the last near seventy years.

Couples planning a wedding as a health crisis sweeps the globe are experiencing pressures and anxiety like never before. Our hearts go out to each and every one of you. Weddings are as social as events come and making sure people are safe while approaching the ever-evolving situation is challenging to say the least.

While many aspects of life feel out of control right now, you do have control over your health and wellness. “Pandemic or not, wedding planning is a journey you take on together,” Empowerment/Health Coach Colette Lettieri says. “While incredibly overwhelming, try to focus on the fact that nothing is really changing, except possibly the date. You are still marrying the person with whom you are in love. If anything, you are going through that first major crossroads before saying ‘I Do.’ This fact is so important to acknowledge because it solidifies your relationship even more. Start by asking, ‘How can we help each other get through this period together?’”

How you choose to wear your hair down the aisle is going to stay with you for the rest of your life – in wedding photos. For Marissa Molnar, however, a bride’s hairstyle goes much deeper than achieving that picture-perfect look. From the second they sit in her chair until whisking off in the getaway car, she wants her clients to feel completely present in the moment, connected, and comfortable with how they look. When these elements are all in check, achieving that radiant glow every bride dreams about is inevitable.

Your reception is going to be the longest part of your wedding. From the decor details to the furniture, how you choose to display your tablescape will have a huge impact on the tone of the evening.

And that dreaded task of putting together the seating chart? Compared to smaller round tables, they are easier to arrange guests in a way so that everyone feels equally welcome. Basically, you wont be faced with the question, “Who are we going to put at the far corner table?”

Imagine painting a monogram on a pair of Christian Louboutin heels as their owner stands overhead, nervously watching your every brushstroke. An undeniably stressful situation for even the most seasoned painter, this is all in a day’s work for Danielle Stern, Founder and Owner of Leftys Right Mind, a Luxury Creative Studio based in New York.

We’ve known Danielle for some time now, first interviewing her in 2016 when she was just starting out, mainly doing hand-calligraphy signage for local restaurants and boutique shops. Bride & Blossom worked with Danielle to create the floral décor for her unforgettable wedding at Cold Spring Country Club in 2017. One of the best things about doing weddings is fostering relationships with our brides that last long after the vows have been exchanged. Keeping in touch with Danielle, we have watched her flourish on both a personal and professional level.
