Sometimes a simple clutch of white Calla Lilies is all it taks to add a touch of elegance to your wedding.
Choosing the right flowers and style for a fall wedding may seem somewhat daunting since the fall doesn’t offer the varieties and colors available in the spring and summer. However, there are many gorgeous and stylish blooms to choose from. Use a variety of textured flowers like Coxcomb with brilliant hues instead of just a few coordinating blooms for a lush, multi-dimensional arrangement. You can also opt to use non floral accents like fruit, vegetables, Birch Bark, Hypericum berries and cones. Pair the more exotic flowers with classic wedding flowers like Roses, Calla Lilies and Orchids in richer hues than you would use in the summer. For bouquets, gone are the loosely tied, garden like arrangements of the past season. Instead, go for the polished, rounded bouquets that are completely wrapped with satin or velvet and accented with rich colored jewels in crystals in pearls. Lastly, get creative with your vase choices. There are many options in traditional glass vases but instead incorporate urns, ceramic vases, colored glass, silver and gold leaf candelabras or even groupings of different shapes and sizes on each table. For your tables, consider adding loose colored leaves, mini pumpkins and anything else that celebrates the change of season.
As Labor Day is quickly approaching and summer is coming to an end, weddings are on the brain of all fall brides to be. September is the most popular month for weddings especially on the east coast where the weather is a bit crisper and foliage gives us a gorgeous array of color. While some flowers are now out of seaso……n there are tons of stunning options for fall floral arrangements. Consider dahlias, Chrysanthemums, and Asters. Many brides opt for non floral accents to commemorate the season like fall fruit, vegetables and leaves.
After last year’s cold and rainy summer we deserved all the sun we’ve enjoyed so far this year. With less than a month before Labor Day, fall brides should start pampering their sun kissed skin. For that wedding day glow schedule a monthly deep cleansing facial or for those on a budget you can do it yourself or have a spa party at home. About a week before the big day go in for your pre-wedding facial but make sure to give your skin enough time to heal if you’re prone to redness or breakouts. For that radiance that screams bride get an oxygen mask or spray the day before. You’ll be sure to get many compliments on your skin.
The BFE team had an amazing weekend! We did our first wedding at the NY Palace Hotel. The bride was an absolute sweetheart and the arrangements were made to wow. We choose a palatte of whites and lime green with a pop of fuchsia. Check out the gorgeous photography by Timecut Photography.
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!
