Wedding Tech Trends That Will Have You Re-Thinking Robotics

The thought of introducing too many screens to your wedding day might make your head spin, but as the times change so do the ways we plan, celebrate, and preserve the most memorable days of our lives.

Here are five tech trends that will have you re-thinking #WeddingTech – from the surreal to the downright practical.

1) Hire a drone photographer.

A Bachelorette Bash at Bride & Blossom

Bride-to-be Sarah and her best girlfriends celebrated her upcoming wedding by learning about floral design at the Bride and Blossom studio. The girls created vibrant arrangements with stunning shades of pink roses, peonies, tulips, and accents of lush greenery.

 

The class was guided by our Wedding Coordinator, Lauren Fernandez.  “Teaching and floral design are my two passions, so it was an absolute pleasure teaching the girls how to create an arrangement,” she says, “They did an amazing job! I loved how each arrangement was unique even though all the girls had the same flowers and vase. That’s my favorite part of floral design!

Floral Inspiration from 60’s Starlets

While you may not be swooning over the full-length gloves, white stockings, and pill box hats, there’s no denying the sixties brought about a newfound freedom of expression in bridal style – florals included. 

Today, we take a glimpse at these sixties sweethearts’ wedding flowers – with tips on how to click fast forward for a vintage-inspired, millennium-approved take:

Audrey Hepburn’s Ring of Roses

Audrey Hepburn married Mel Ferrer in a tea-length flared Balmain* dress with satin puffed sleeves and elbow length gloves, accompanied by a stunningly simple crown of roses. (*Yes, that’s the same Balmain responsible for Kim and Kanye’s cyborgian armor at this year’s Met Gala!)

Bridal Beauty at The Ritz-Carlton Battery Park

One of the best parts of working with Bride & Blossom is having the opportunity to hear the amazing love stories of our brides. Liza and Jesse’s story is no exception!

“Jesse’s sister Carly introduced me to Jesse at her Hanukkah party several years ago. My close friend from college grew up in the same town as Jesse and is close friends with Carly. It took Jesse almost a year to ask me out, but after our first date, the rest was history. Being married to Jesse makes me feel like the luckiest girl!”

We think she’s pretty lucky too, especially helping to create a classic ambiance for her traditional wedding at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park. Liza went with a clean, simple color palette in shades of white and ivory with blush accents that popped against the dominant neutrals she chose. With a show-stopping venue like The Ritz-Carlton, she knew better than to overdo it on décor, and let the setting add to the classy, romantic mood.

Perfectly Peachy at the Refinery Hotel

Peach Juliet Garden Roses in the Bride & Blossom studio

Peach, the sophisticated cousin of that ubiquitous wedding color — pink. This often-overlooked color can add a delicate touch of femininity to your wedding decor without going over-the-top. It works brilliantly as the subtle pop in a neutral color palette, and is brought to life with the addition of vibrant greenery. At a recent Bride & Blossom wedding held at Manhattan’s Refinery Hotel, we saw this color take center stage as the star of a particularly sophisticated soiree. The cosmopolitan venue provided the perfect backdrop for hues of peach, ivory, and cream with lush green accents.
