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. For many couples, mom is at the top of this list. 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. While the matriarch behind a wedding typically wears a corsage on her wrist, there are a number of ways for her to accessorize with beautiful blooms. From simple to bold, here are fresh wedding flower ideas to make every mother feel special.

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 have been following along, you know that we have already covered round and rectangular tables. The final installment in this blog series will explore floral decor options for long reception tables. Occasionally referred to as banquet style, this layout is created by pushing together rectangular tables to create a long table that seats ten or more guests. Wedding planners and floral designers alike love this setup because of how its clean lines and perfect proportions give the impression that all elements, from the flowers and place settings to the chairs, are lined up flawlessly.

Rectangular, also referred to as ‘communal’ or ‘farmhouse,’ is a popular type of table shape used in Real BB Weddings. Similar to their round counterpart, rectangular tables seat 8 to 10 guests and typically measure eight-feet by 42-inches. We often see rectangular tables used in a mix-and-match reception layout, either with circular or banquet seating. We do want to point out that while rectangular encourages a relaxed and ‘familial’ atmosphere, socializing can be limited where guests may end up talking to the person sitting next to them. From a floral designer’s standpoint, what is so appealing about this type of table is how it offers ample surface for a variety of centerpiece styles and decor. It also wins major points for versatility and can be set up in the dining room of a private estate or in a chic industrial space. From lush, romantic garlands to posh and modern arrangements, here are beautiful centerpiece ideas for rectangular tables culled from the Real BB Wedding archives.

Congratulations! After months of meetings, phones calls, and emails, you and your wedding planner (if you have one) have mapped out the dining space in painstaking detail to determine the seating layout of your reception. Now it’s time to make an appointment with your florist to design the floral decor that will underscore the tone of your wedding and pull together the room. When we first talk with clients, we go over their desired wedding style, color scheme, favorite flowers along with any images they have pinned and saved for inspiration. At this point, they have a good sense of the shape, size, and layout of their tables with the most popular being round, rectangular and banquet. This information is important because certain types of centerpieces pair best with each kind of table.

Its verdant tendrils catch the eye while bringing a sense of natural elegance to a room.
