Wedding Crashers, a Brooklyn wedding fair at the Wythe Hotel, introduced us to new vendors and inspired us with creative ideas. This event emphasized handcrafted and unique touches to bring a personalized, vintage-modern feeling to weddings. Sustainable design and responsibly sourced ingredients and materials were hot topics at the fair, but didn’t pull focus from what couples always look for: charming, elegant and sentimental ways to express their love and taste. Here are a few of our favorite things from the fair.
Handmade engagement rings crafted with Fairmined metals and ethically sourced diamonds and gems. Bario-Neal offers total customization of all ring designs and transparency about suppliers and sourcing. Some diamonds in their designs are “recycled” or antique. Couples aiming for a green lifestyle need not sacrifice elegance. We loved the classic shape and colored stone in their Aquamarine Halo ring. Read More
Bride & Blossom just attended the New York Weddings Bridal Show, held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC! Our booth was near the wonderful ladies of Bride’s Head Revisited (//bridesheadrevisited.net/). They are hosting an evening of cocktails and wedding ideas on April 16th, 2012 at De Berardinis Chelsea Salon (//bridesheadrevisited.net/events).
The catering company, Creative Concepts NYC (//www.creativeconceptsnyc.com/) was right next to our booth too! Ron Ben-Israel creates the most gorgeous and intricate wedding cakes ever! (//www.weddingcakes.com/#/home/). Our main attraction for the evening rested on two reversible vases and consisted of purple and white hydrangeas, lavender roses, lavender and purple stock, and fuchsia phalaenopsis orchids and feathers.Read More
I’m loving this gown. One of our recent brides wore it and the bouquet we created for her complements it perfectly. The flowers and crystals on the gown are so elegant. The bouquet is soft, romantic and traditional with a combination of Roses, Calla Lilies and Peonies. We even added in some Swarvoski crystals to match with the gown.
That magical walk down the aisle starts with the long awaited bling, quickly becoming your new “best friend”. And that’s just the beginning of your wedding sparkle. While bling was once limited to bridal accessories and dress embellishments, stunning wedding jewelry is Hollywood’s hottest trend, splashed across the pages of bridal publications and prominently featured in wedding shows. Wedding bling can be used to accent centerpieces, canopies and cakes but is most commonly found in bouquets, adding glamour and a touch of elegance to your most sentimental blooms. You can find crystals and pearls in a variety of designs, colors and sizes. They are usually fashioned from crystals and rhinestones and even real diamonds, gems and pearls depending on your budget. Instead of the traditional bridesmaid’s gifts, if you want to do something special for your ladies in waiting, consider adding a beautiful touch to their bouquets as well and they can keep it as a momento. With so many brides looking to be unique this is one simple way to make your bouquet stand out. When it comes to your wedding day it’s the details that count!
