From the dress and shoes to hairstyle and manicure, every detail of the bride’s ensemble is an expression of her unique style. Personal expression is the one thing that we regular folk have in common with princesses, A-list actresses, and influencers when it comes to saying ‘I Do.’ Personal expression cannot be bought for a high price tag – it is part of you and comes from within.

While we love talking about gowns and accessories, nothing gets us more excited than the topic of wedding bouquets. We could go on for hours about the fresh, sophisticated romance of Priyanka Chopra’s ribbon accented arrangement. Since many of our clients have celebrity wedding photos pinned to their vision boards, we thought it would be fun to highlight the famous brides whose bouquets captured our eyes, hearts, and imaginations over the last near seventy years.

We are all spending A LOT MORE time at home right now. Many of us are using this period to declutter, organize, and redecorate in an effort to create a space that is warm, inviting, and well, feels good.

When it comes to wedding cakes these days, taste is just one of the factors that couples consider when deciding on what to serve their guests. Now more than ever, natural flowers and greenery are replacing the traditional cake topper to create fresh, one-of-kind designs. We always get excited when our couples ask us to set aside elements from their floral theme to decorate their wedding cake. A few pillowy peonies on top, a cascade of garden roses, and a ring of ivy can take the basic white dessert to the next level. From petite and sweet to blooming show-stoppers, here’s a look at some of our favorite petal trimmed confections from the Real BB Weddings archives.

Scientists have conducted numerous research studies to confirm that certain colors have special ‘powers’ that influence our emotions and behaviors. The official term is ‘color psychology.’ Red is associated with passion, blue is calming, yellow means happiness, pink is romantic, orange is playful, green is refreshing and purple relates to creativity. As wedding floral designers, one of the best perks of the job is getting to witness the power of color first hand.

Sure, all white with a touch of green here and there is a classic mainstay that looks great across seasons and venues. This post is for our readers who are thinking about exploring color’s emotional expression. Often in our experience, a few slight adjustments in intensity and brightness is what is needed to take an arrangement to the next level. An exuberant floral theme just sings to the joyous feelings of love that fill a couple’s big day. For inspiration, we went through the Real BB Weddings archives and rounded up our favorite vibrant wedding palette ideas.

Imagine being met by lush florals and greenery with every step you take down the aisle. Going big with ceremony pathway décor was a major emerging trend last year with our brides. Scattered rose petals and candles (which are absolutely beautiful!) were given over to flourishing, natural arrangements that looked like a garden in full bloom. Aptly described as a ‘living’ aisle, these show-stopping scenes captivate the eye to no end. Our client proposals for the upcoming wedding season indicate that this floral love affair is here to stay. From wildly romantic to prim and polished, here are décor ideas for making the big walk all you dreamed of and more.
