You are not alone if choosing a wedding color palette is proving to be a difficult task. From personal style and the mood you want to set for the celebration to season and venue, there are so many factors that go into pinning down the perfect scheme to decorate your big day. Your color palette influences every detail, especially flowers. Wedding blooms are available in every color of the rainbow. We love talking with clients about the myriad of different shades that can be incorporated into floral decor – white or beige, plum or wine, peach or tangerine, pink or watermelon? Since floral decor plays an important role in color expression, we picked out four eye-catching wedding color palettes based on flowers to help inspire and shape your vision. Read More
Jamie and Jasper Wedding – Bride and Groom Kissing – Gurneys Montauk – Pat Furey Photography
The beach is where it all began for Bride & Blossom. It was Founder Rachel Trimarco’s waterside nuptials that planted the seed, which would eventually grow into a luxury floral design & styling boutique. Rachel visualized the floral landscape for her own wedding. On the morning of, a-bride-to-be walked through the venue and liked the flowers so much that she requested contact information for the florist. That bride became Rachel’s first client.
In the past twelve years since then, the sense of joy and excitement felt as summer begins and weddings head to venues lined with sandy beaches and picturesque seascape views is just as strong. After a year and a half of pandemic lockdown that greatly impacted how we gather and celebrate lifetime events, we are especially looking forward to this upcoming season. In addition to the breathtaking setting, what makes beach venues in the New York City area so alluring is that they offer the look and feel of a destination wedding without all the added planning, stress, and expenses.

Kelly and Jon Wedding – Chuppah Detail – Maritime Parc – Yumi Matsuo Studios
You have researched and pinned ‘all things’ flowers, but have you given any deep thought to the greenery that you will use in your wedding ceremony backdrop? This is a question we ask all of our clients and in most cases, the answer is ‘no.’ Understandably, as leaves and stems usually play a supporting role to the real stars of the show – roses, peonies, orchids, and dahlias. But like any great movie or play, unforgettable wedding decor is dependent on the chemistry between the entire cast. Read More
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
