Whether you are getting married at a countryside vineyard, art museum, contemporary loft space, or historic estate, there is a good chance that your wedding venue has a stairway somewhere in its layout plan. While trimming a staircase may not be the first item on your ‘To Do List’ for floral decor, it’s still an area that should be given thought and attention. As wedding florists, we can say that in our experience, it’s these extra details of embellishment that not only enhance a weddingscape, but are also what stands out most to guests.

Read on to see more beautiful ideas for decorating the stairway at your wedding.

As much as a wedding dress should make a bride look beautiful, it should make her feel beautiful and confident. Scrolling through the looks on Loulette Bride’s website, you get a sense that this sentiment is threaded throughout the collection – these dresses are made to be worn by every type of woman. Behind the Brooklyn-based label is founder Marteal Mayer whose distinct vision and philosophy are evident at first glance. After years of working in fast fashion, Marteal knew everything she didn’t want her independent bridal line to be – exclusive, cookie-cutter, and wasteful. Marteal set out to make bridal wear that she could be proud of – custom pieces that connected deeply with customers on a myriad of levels. Inclusivity, sustainability, and craftsmanship have been the driving forces guiding the label from the very beginning. For Loulette Bride, designing with passion + purpose means not only making beautiful wedding attire, but also using recycled fabrics, donating a portion of sales to a new charity each season, planting a tree for every dress sold, supporting the LGBTQ+ community, and running a fashion mentorship program for students of color.
