After seeing a Broadway show with her mom and grandma, Stefanie planned to meet up with friends for a night out in the city. Stefanie reassured them not to worry about how she would get home – her friend Mike had offered to drive in from East Meadow, just a town over from where her parents lived in Long Island and pick her up. She just had to ask. Grandmas know best and Stefanie’s grandma saw the situation clear as day. “If he is going to drive all the way into Manhattan at 1 am to pick you up and then just turn around and bring you home, he must be in love with you.”

The Spring 2020 Couture shows just wrapped up in Paris. Peppered throughout many of the collections were some of the most daring bridal looks that we have ever seen. Keep in mind that when creating couture, most designers strive to translate their most lavish and avant-garde ideas into fashion. Thus, the couture bride ignores all sense of tradition and does not play by anyone’s rules but her own. Simply put, the aisle way is her runway.

We thought it would be fun to put expectations aside of what a lady should wear when she says “I Do.” Here, we’ve rounded up the must-see Spring 2020 Couture bridal looks from designers such as Chanel, Givenchy, and Elie Saab. So relax, and take a moment to forget about all the photos your mom keeps emailing of dresses she thinks will “look beautiful on you!”

There are many reasons for wanting lofty table décor – it commands the eye while creating an alluring reception atmosphere. From a practical standpoint, a high centerpiece allows for more space below to accommodate the ever-flowing drinks and cuisine. One major trend we saw in our 2019 Real BB Weddings was the harlow stand. Taking the place of a tall vase, the harlow stand is 4-post metal structure used to display flowers. It is available in various heights and colors such as gold, silver, bronze, and black.

When Pantone named “Classic Blue” as its 2020 Color of the Year, we, admittedly, had mixed emotions. From a floral designer’s standpoint, the announcement presented quite a challenge as there are very few flowers that are naturally blue. At the same time, blue is a timeless, versatile, and emotionally charged color – qualities that make it a perfect fit for weddings. This notion is furthered when we consider what Pantone said in support of its choice.

Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold to a new era.
