The Minimalist Bride: Subtle Accents on Your Big Day

By:

Every bride has her own unique style and vision for her big day. However, some have a hard time finding the perfect balance between lavish décor and simple highlights without making the style feel too trendy or flashy. Our minimalist brides have a simpler taste; they prefer subtle and neutrals, accenting organically to create a theme. If you find yourself looking to create a beautiful scene that lights up a room without taking away from the main attraction of the bride and groom, we may just have what you are looking for. Here are a few ways to delicately add your signature touch to your special occasion while keeping it modest, sophisticated and tasteful.

Framed Photographs: There are countless weddings that showcase the memory lane slideshow or engagement photo shoot pictures to give guests a glimpse of the newlyweds’ love story. While these are popular, not everyone enjoys the full show — some like to capture a similar sentiment on a smaller scale. Having unique framed photographs precisely placed throughout the reception can provide guests with candid moments without overshadowing the festivities. It’s a great way to show pictures from the beginning of the bride and groom’s relationship to now. Another great addition is to celebrate the people who have loved you along the way. This can include pictures of parents, grandparents and siblings. Not only do these unique picture frames add design quality to your reception space, but they’re also sweet, sentimental and nostalgic.

 

 

Calligraphy/Stationary: Custom monograms and special fonts for your wedding day prints include menus, programs and table numbers. An impressive way to add flare and individuality to your wedding day is your choice in calligraphy and designs. Fonts can vary depending on the wedding’s theme, from formal to casual, or rustic to modern; the designs can play a big role in complimenting your theme.

 

 

Linens: Linen choice provides the room with many textures, designs, colors and dynamics. Fabric can be one of the most underrated elements of a wedding, as many stick to creams and whites so it doesn’t take away from table designs. As this often is a good idea and looks nice, it’s important to remember that tablecloths, napkins, chair covers and even floral embellishments like ribbons are great ways to showcase some personal preference while adding a variety of texture. Incorporating lace, brocade, ruffles, crochet, burlap, satin and silk can bring different and interesting aspects to your overall room décor.

 

 

Lighting Up a Room: Lighting is not usually something couples recognize as an essential feature while designing the look of their reception room, yet it is a simple factor that greatly adds to the ambiance. The atmosphere you have always desired can be achieved by choosing the correct light to accent your decor.

This can be accomplished with up-lighting, high-hats, low-lights, candlelight, chandeliers and often natural light. A modern look is created by incorporating your color scheme into the room’s lighting. This adds vibrancy to your décor and keeps the room upbeat. For a classic look, clear-white lights are key to keeping the room crisp and clean. Of course, the best light is often natural light, as sunlight can be the most charming.

 

 

Many brides think that having a simple wedding is too ordinary, but if you follow these easy tips and include subtle accents like lighting, stationary and textures, you can really bring your dream room to life.

Spring Wedding Venues in New York City

By:

All winter we wait and wait for the day to hear the longing sounds of birds chirping, to see flowers budding through the soil, and to feel the sun through our windows. Spring is finally here! The grass is green, the trees are blooming and it’s time to put our snow boots away for good. There are so many qualities of spring that we fall in love with. March, April and May are heartwarming months to take advantage of the colorful foliage and natural beauty around us. As a soon-to-be-bride, choosing to get married in the spring is an exciting time that offers you many great options when it comes to your bridal gown, bridesmaids dresses, wedding flowers and your venue. Being from the greatest city in the world, we know that the concrete jungle may not always offer venues that have organic nature roots, but from Bride and Blossom to all of our brides, we have a few hidden gems that are perfect springtime wedding venues in NYC.

When imagining a spring wedding, we picture colorful flowers, garden themes and most importantly, an outdoor-inspired space. Now, as New York’s weather can be temperamental, it is easy to say many may be nervous to plan a fully outdoors event in the spring — as the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” Well, we have the perfect compromise for you! An outdoor wedding that has indoor features to create a secure space that is weather resistant, but also allows you to bring the outdoors and sunshine inside with you. Three of our favorite spring wedding venues include Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Battery Gardens and the famous Tribeca Rooftop. We are confident that you will love what these venues have to offer and can’t wait to share them with you.

 

BROOKLYN BOTANIC GARDEN

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a popular attraction for those in the tri-state area and visitors alike. Brooklyn Botanic Garden is filled with an array of varying gardens and exhibits, including cherry blossom trees, cape buttercup blooms and a rose garden, while changing throughout the seasons to support a variety of species. The garden grounds are full of intertwining landscapes and flowers galore. What many don’t know while visiting this colorful treat is you can get married at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. With a capacity of 300 guests, it is a beautiful reception space that can accommodate many layouts, having multiple areas to hold different parts of your wedding. It is popular to hold your ceremony directly in the garden space for picturesque backdrops as you say “I Do.” There is a grand fountain near the main garden, which works brilliantly for cocktail hour as sun gets lower in the sky. Next, and one of the best features of this space, is The Palm House. The Palm House is an indoor space made of glass walls that create an atrium feel overlooking the gardens. It’s a beautiful space during a sunset ceremony or a reception underneath the Brooklyn stars. It also offers a terrace with a peaceful lily pad fountain for an extra touch of serenity. This beautiful oasis is a great option for a springtime wedding as it represents spring in all of its glory. Flowers blooming, bees buzzing and birds chirping along with beautiful scenery for a night you will remember forever.

Next on our list is Battery Gardens. Most New Yorkers know Battery Park as a public park at the very tip of downtown Manhattan. It’s a great place for kids’ sports games, running, picnics, and surprisingly, weddings. Battery Gardens is an exclusive on-site restaurant, offering stunning harbor views and an outdoor terrace on the water. This space has the sophistication and elegance of New York’s Battery Park wrapped up into one. The venue, with a maximum capacity of 220 guests, is known for producing both intimate and large-scale weddings, catering to all of the standards of New York.

The first space that often holds wedding ceremonies is the outdoor patio. This is a large backyard if you will, with panoramic views of the Hudson River. Getting married on the Hudson with New York as your backdrop makes for an incredible scene. This outdoor space offers beautiful landscaping and greenery to enhance a springtime wedding. After the ceremony, we move to cocktail hour, which is often held downstairs in an airy, open space. Dinner and dancing then follow in the main upstairs dining room. A dance floor, dinner space and lounge area provide plenty of entertainment options for guests, and the room adds a romantic touch with a working fireplace for a chilly spring night. The entire space has panoramic windows with stunning views of the harbor, and the Statue of Liberty. Battery Gardens is a gorgeous venue for a couple craving more of a classic feel with a touch of the outdoors and ocean tranquility. It offers both indoor and outdoor options that can be easily transformed to host the wedding of your dreams, while being a great location to celebrate a springtime wedding in a more low-key setting.

The last springtime venue that embraces more of an industrial design for our more modern brides is Tribeca Rooftop. Located in the heart of Tribeca, the rooftop is an integral part of Downtown Manhattan life. Tribeca Rooftop is a contemporary and industrial-style penthouse that hosts private parties, events and weddings, accommodating a large capacity of 300-380 guests. Operating on a larger scale, Tribeca Rooftop is known for its famous in-house chef, yet can also provide catering of your choice. Though it is called a rooftop by name, it offers both indoor and outdoor space. Inside the penthouse, which is the main reception hall, there is a 65-foot skylight and a magnitude of glass windows creating an open concept loft space. Once you step outside, Tribeca Rooftop is known for its fabulous roof deck that has spectacular 360-degree views of Manhattan. As this venue was originally a 1920s printing press building, it houses exposed brick walls offering a modern yet historical vibe for your wedding style.

Getting married on the roof deck as the sun goes down behind the Manhattan skyline is just one of the many perks of this location. It can be dressed up with greenery, florals and accents to highlight the season’s best qualities. With dinner and dancing to follow inside the penthouse, the guests will never miss the starry night over Manhattan. The roof deck can stay open throughout the night, letting your guests take in the gorgeous feeling of a true Manhattan wedding.

 

 

Choosing a wedding venue can be a difficult task, yet emphasizing the season can provide you with many pleasing options to fulfill all of your hopes and wishes. Make sure to have fun during the process of venue shopping and remember, the spring is a time for dreamers.

The Ritual, Meaning, and Joy of the Jewish Wedding Ceremony

By:

Working weddings in New York City means you’re lucky enough to be surrounded by multiple cultures and a variety of fabulous wedding traditions. Bride & Blossom has been lucky enough to work with brides whose weddings celebrate the many cultures and religions that make this city one of the greatest in the world! With each ceremony comes the opportunity to translate unique traditions into a wonderful expression of a couple’s love. A beautiful example of this is the Jewish wedding ceremony, which is full of meaningful rituals symbolizing the union between a husband and wife and their bond to the Jewish community.

Highlighting the history, meaning, and joy of Jewish marriage rituals that join the chatan (Hebrew for groom) and kallah (bride) for life. From the chuppah and breaking of the glass to the yihud, here’s your guide to a traditional Jewish ceremony.

 

Kabbalat Panim
On their wedding day, the bride and groom are considered royalty. The Jewish wedding begins with the kabbalat panim, which translates to ‘the receiving of faces.’ Just like a queen and king, the couple receives their guests in two separate events – the Hachnasat Kallah for the bride and Chosen’s Tish for the groom. The bride is seated on a throne-like chair where she is usually greeted by the female guests who are there to provide her needs. During the Chosen’s Tish, which means ‘groom’s table,’ the male guests gather around the groom and drink toasts. The groom tries to read a passage from Torah while guests interrupt him by shouting song. It is intended to keep the mood light and good-spirited.

Badeken
The couple sees each other for the first time during the Badeken, or veiling of the bride. A symbol of modesty, the veil expresses the idea that above physical appearance, the groom is drawn to his bride’s inner beauty. The male guests lead the groom to the bride’s room where she is surrounded by her female guests. He looks at his bride before lowering the veil over her face. The custom comes from the biblical story of Jacob’s love for Rachel – Jacob did not see his bride’s face before the ceremony and was tricked into marrying the wrong sister.

 

Chuppah
The wedding takes place under the chuppah, a canopy that is open on all sides and symbolizes the home of the soon-to-be-married couple. Dating back to when the Jewish people roamed the dessert, the structure recalls the tent of Abraham and Sarah, which was open and welcoming to others. There are no formal requirements regarding the chuppah’s appearance. We’ve had the privilege of working with brides on the design and floral decoration, and love watching how the chuppah becomes a beautiful expression of a woman’s personality and style.

 

 

Circling
The bride and groom are escorted into the chuppah by their respective set of parents. Next, the bride circles the groom seven times symbolizing the seven days of creation and the building of the walls of their new world together. The number seven is also significant because it symbolizes wholeness and completion.

 

Kiddushin
Kiddushin means Blessings of Betrothal and takes place under the chuppah. After the Rabbi recites the betrothal blessings, the bride and groom take a sip from a ceremonial cup of wine.

Giving of the Ring
The groom places a ring on the bride’s right index finger in clear view of two witnesses while reciting an ancient Aramaic phrase. Jewish law requires the ring to be made of precious metal and without decoration or stones, which symbolizes a marriage of simple beauty. Not permitted in some Orthodox weddings, the double-ring ceremony continues with the bride sliding a ring on the groom’s index finger.

 

Ketubah (Marriage Contract)
The Ketubah, marriage contract, is read aloud in Aramaic and English. It is signed by two witnesses and stands as a legally binding agreement. This is the point in the ceremony when the first part Kiddushan (betrothal) ends, and the latter part called Nissuin (marriage) begins.

Sheva Brachot (The Seven Blessings)
The theme of the sheva brachot, or The Seven Blessings, links the couple to our faith in God as Creator of the world, Bestower of joy and love, and the ultimate Redeemer of our people. The blessings are recited by the Rabbi, chosen friends and family members, or all guests in attendance.

 

Breaking of the Glass
The best-known Jewish wedding tradition is the breaking of the glass. Traditionally, the groom shatters a wineglass under his foot. But it is perfectly acceptable for the bride to get in on the fun these days. Reasoning behind the ritual varies: a symbol of the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem; a reminder to the couple that life is full of sorrow and joy; a symbol of the fragility of relationships. For wedding guests, the sound of breaking glass means it time to shout “Mazel Tov!” and get the party started. Smashing the Glass.com is dedicated to featuring this tradition of many brides and grooms.

 

 

The Yihud
It’s been a whirlwind day for the couple. The Yihud, which means seclusion, is a ritual during which the couple retreats to a private room where they can have a moment together to reflect on their new partnership as husband and wife.

As you can see, there are many symbolic rituals make up the Jewish ceremony, creating a day filled with meaning, love, and joy that celebrates the union of husband and wife.

Garden Tea Party Bridal Shower

By:

There are many reasons to be excited about planning a bridal shower in the spring. Warmer temps and sunshine means the season’s loveliest flowers are in full bloom. Make the most of spring’s splendor by taking the fête outdoors and hosting a garden tea party bridal shower. Delicate teacups, bountiful bouquets, vintage silverware, delicious sandwiches and desserts start a list of party-prepping details. From the décor to the food, the aim is to create a light atmosphere that is romantic and feminine. Now that you have the shower theme picked out, it’s time to get started. Here are ideas to guarantee that your bride has the loveliest afternoon bonding with her dearest friends over tea and shortbread cookies.

Décor and Set Up: When it comes to choosing décor, focus on soft pastels, vintage, florals, lace, and silver and gold accents. The tablescape is a great place to start. Impress the party with centerpiece floral arrangements placed in teapots or a bouquet nestled inside an antique birdcage. Take advantage of being outdoors by hanging lace umbrellas, glass vases filled with flowers, or white lights from a nearby tree. Gilded and whitewashed frames are a stylish way to display special notes to the bride, photos, and food and drink menus.

In addition to the main dining table, set up food and drink bars using shabby chic furniture like a vanity or dresser. Not just a great organizational strategy, these stations can be adorned with lace tablecloths and small flower-filled vases. We suggest reserving separate areas for refreshments, English tea inspired fare, and desserts.

 

 

Tableware and Serveware: To create a delightful atmosphere, set the table with vintage-style plates, bowls, teacups, and silverware. If you don’t have these dishes on hand, ask friends and family, or search your local thrift store and Etsy. See about renting options as a last resort. And don’t worry if the plates and cups are not the same – a mismatched table is unique and full of charm. Accent napkins with delicate lace or ribbon.

Spread savory food on silver and floral adorned platters and large plates. For a truly sweet presentation at the dessert buffet, arrange cookies and other delights on elegant tiered stands. A cake with pastel frosting looks just lovely on a milk glass cake stand. At the refreshments bar, have a teapot of hot water, tea, milk, and sugar so guests can fix their own cup of tea. Serve cold beverages in glass pitchers.

 

 

Food and Drinks: Plan the food menu around delicate, light fare that would have greeted the guests of Downtown Abbey. Offer afternoon tea sandwiches such as the traditional cucumber butter and smoked salmon with dill and crème fraiche. Pair with deviled eggs, tomato basil soup, and a spinach and strawberry salad with balsamic dressing.

Where to even begin with dessert?! Make it a shower your bride will never forget and present her with a cake decorated with romantic flowers. Round out the sweets with classic shortbread, sugar cookies with edible flowers, scones with jam and clotted crème, lemon bars, and an assortment of chocolate covered fruit. Stick with traditional teas and offer black, herbal, and an iced flavor such as lavender-mint. Water with fruit slices and lemonade are perfect springtime beverages. For a cocktail, we can’t think of anything more beautiful and appropriately named than the Blushing Bride Champagne Cocktail made with champagne, grenadine, passion fruit nectar, and seasonal berries.

 

 

Shower Favors: Say goodbye to your guests with a parting gift that they are sure to love. If the teacups are not of sentimental value, let each guest take their cup home along with a small tin of blended tea, or small delicious treats. Even inspire them to plant their own blossoms with a miniature pot of flowers or small planter and bag of seeds.

 

 

While hosting a bridal shower is a lot of work, it is also your chance to be creative, bringing together friends and family to celebrate a special woman as she prepares for her wedding day. Make it a most memorable affair by taking the party out to the garden to enjoy a spot of tea amidst the spring’s fresh blooms.

Flowers and Frosting

By:

A wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without a show stopping cake; the first piece cut as a newlywed couple, shared with joy, love and laughter. The cake is displayed for all to admire throughout the night until the treasured cake cutting ceremony where its details, design and individuality are greatly notice and appreciated. The evolution of the traditional wedding cake has progressed from a simple sheet cake to now offering multiple layers, tiers and decadent accents. One of the newest trends in the wedding industry is not only making flowers out of edible pieces such as frosting and sugar, but also featuring real flowers on the cake. This trend is hitting the scene in a great way, and is one that we can’t believe took so long to get here! The idea of incorporating your bridal flowers onto your cake ties the theme together beautifully and is a great way to ensure a one-of-a-kind picturesque confection.

While picking a design or theme for your floral wedding cake there are a few things to keep in mind: the shape of the cake, color and foundation and lastly, the selection of flowers. The most popular and trendy cake shape is a tri-level cake, graduating in size from top to bottom. Yet in today’s industry, cakes are ranging anywhere from three layers to twelve layers of delicious designs. There is an assortment of shapes and silhouettes, varying from the classic round to a modern geometric masterpiece. This design leaves plenty of room on the top tier of the cake to house the flowers of your choice along with other spaces on the lower levels. You can design a cake that is perfectly symmetrical, or a more modern look is to create a proportional design, yet, one that is offset or staggered in its layers.

 

 

The next step before deciding on flowers is the medium your cake is made out of and what coloring matches your flower scheme. Options include traditional buttercream frosting, marzipan, fondant and the new and trendy naked cake. Buttercream and fondant cakes are often found in creams and ivories, but can be incorporated into your theme by dressing the cake up with metallic, rubies and more. These are traditional cakes that are featured in ballroom and classic wedding receptions. The naked cake design features slight frosting with natural cake appearances. This is used in many rustic or country settings, and is a beautiful non-traditional accent.

While these cakes are beautiful on their own in silhouette, frosting and taste, it’s time to dress them up and add a special touch to your reception. Adding big statement flowers to the top tier is a great way to make a bold statement, and keep a clean and classic look. Many also add florals strictly to the bottom of the cake, almost dressing up the pedestal and bottom layer to keep the rest of the cake simple and elegant. Another way to incorporate flowers is by placing them on every layer of cake. This is a more wild and organic approach. Covering each layer in flowers can work really well in a bohemian or garden theme wedding. A modern or contemporary cake is popular in a structured flower design from top to bottom, for example a cascading waterfall of flowers. Many options in design technique include fashioning clusters, creating patterns or displaying single blooms.

 

 

A great aspect of cake design is that it can be specific to your theme, your florals and your style. There are many types of blooms that fit beautifully on the cake of your choice, and a few of our favorites work really well to complement different styles. For a tailored or structured impression, having rhyme and reason in bloom choice can help achieve this feel. Yet, a mismatched group and contrasting varieties together can make for a beautiful, one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

Picking your statement flower or showstopper can be the first step. Garden roses, peonies, and hydrangea are great starter pieces. They are the flowers to place first and work around, next adding in smaller species that complement. Ranunculus, daisies, spray roses and anemones are a great filler if you will. They are whimsical, colorful and can tie the entire cake design together. Lastly, many may think that adding in greenery can take away from the beauty, yet it’s exactly the opposite. Greenery and simple branches add lusciousness, color, and texture and build the cake from quiet and simple to loud and full. Some great greenery options are Italian ruscus, seeded eucalyptus and rosemary. The aforementioned work really well for classic, whimsical and vintage themes, while some other unique cake designs can include orchids, succulents and lilies; this is a more one-of-a-kind look that is specific to a theme or style.

 

 

As you can see, integrating flowers into wedding cake décor brings a sense of enchantment, design and beauty that only Mother Nature can offer. The delightful beauty will be almost too good to eat.

Wedding Garland

By:

After the main event has happened and everyone is ready to celebrate, an unforgettable tablescape sets the stage for your wedding guests to relax, indulge and get to know each other better. Garlands are an impactful and gorgeous way to reinforce the overall theme of the wedding and give your guests something beautiful to take in while sipping champagne. They also are wonderful visually, as they offer one continuous focal point for the eye to follow. This keeps the table from looking overrun with adornments and translates well in photos. Garlands are also very adaptable and can be used with any color, floral or other inspiration for your wedding.

A few things to keep in mind if choosing a garland for your tablescape:

  • Make sure your garland doesn’t overflow into the space needed for your table settings. Check with your florist or event designer to make sure the table dimensions are adequate.
  • This may not be the best choice if you are planning to have a “family-style” dinner. Instead, choose smaller arrangements that can be moved to make room for food.
  • Mixing textures, complementary colors or tonal shades help the garlands from becoming monotonous.

 

 

Trends for 2017

 

Greenery Garlands: The Pantone color of the year, Greenery, is the perfect inspiration to draw from for your wedding and is amazing when used for a garland! So many ways to incorporate this in a garland, from sprigs of fresh herbs to petals that bloom from light jades and lime tones to budding baby kale buds. It also can oscillate from light and ethereal feeling to robust and hearty, depending on the greenery that you choose. For a more earthy and organic feel, try using olive branches and fresh rosemary, or if your wedding is more romantic and garden-inspired, lay eucalyptus and ferns down the center of the table. You could even have a more masculine and wintery garland when incorporating evergreens.

 

 

Full Flower Garlands: Utterly romantic, these opulent centerpieces are the glamour girl of flower garlands. Lavish, lush and sure to make your guests swoon. Plush roses and peonies are the ideal flowers for these but hydrangea and carnations are stunning en masse and come in an array of colors, especially wonderful for an ombre garland effect.

 

 

Candle Light Garland: For the ultimate sensual mood, drench your guests in candlelight. When florals are the expected centerpiece, candles as the visual focal point offer a memorable décor element. Keep sight lines in mind if using tall candelabras and don’t skimp. The more flicker, the better!

 

 

Saturated Color in Garland: Don’t be afraid to go full spectrum color! Be really evocative and bold with your color combinations and create an everlasting impression on your guests. Flowers come in many saturated and dense color options. Choose one flower in variant colors or a few colors in different blooms. Make sure to have focus and repeat throughout the garland so the eye doesn’t become overwhelmed. Go for unexpected combinations and have fun!
