There’s no denying the romantic charm dancing candlelight brings to the wedding tablescape. While white and ivory are a classic choice, more couples are opting for color when it comes to lighting up their reception. What is so attractive about colorful taper candles other than beauty is their versatility – they work with just about any wedding style and type of venue. From a floral designer’s perspective, we love how colored taper candles can be used to accentuate the decorative aesthetic while creating a sense of cohesion through out a space. And one thing is for certain, colorful taper candles will elevate the room whether you make them a focal point or just scattered them across the tabletop.

There are certain elements of wedding decor that are made to not only look pretty, but serve a functional purpose as well. One such element is the presentation of escort cards and seating charts. Traditionally, escort cards are placed neatly on a table topped with an eye-catching arrangement. After cocktail hour, guests pick up the cards and are directed to their tables. This conventional setup and process is tried and true. However, what we have noticed most recently is that couples are requesting unique and ‘out-of-the box’ designs for their escort cards and seating charts. It’s the first decorative piece people see as they head to the reception after all, and sets the vibe for the rest of the night. And even if you are planning a timelessly classic wedding, this is one area that allows room for putting a personal and creative spin on decor. Feeling inspired? Read on for unique escort card and seating chart displays guaranteed to impress your guests.

Flowers are used to punctuate the most important elements of a wedding’s decor and atmosphere. Florals are also used to differentiate those closest and dearest to you, namely members of your wedding party who have been more involved in both the planning and celebration.

From finding a venue to choosing your dress, she’s been with you every step of the way and deserves to be recognized for her love, guidance, and support.

When asked about her desired floral style for her wedding at the New York Botanical Garden’s Stone Mill, Real BB Bride Alexandra replied, “When I met with Bride & Blossom, I explained that I wanted to complement the already beautiful space, with an elevated, wildflower theme.” She continues, “Flowers that felt romantic, whimsical, and chic, but not overly edited. And the colors to capture the impression of a golden sunlight with pops of yellow, orange and pink highlights.” Ever since talking with Alexandra, we’ve been obsessed with the idea of using blossoms we see growing freely in meadows, fields, and forests and tailoring them for an upscale special event.

If you are in the midst of planning a wedding, chances are you have put together a To-Do list laying out in detail all that needs to get done before the big event. To-Do lists help organize, prioritize, and track progress. However, when faced with a huge project, we often leave the hardest tasks to the last minute.
