Your parents, grandparents, and immediate family make up the VIP guests who deserve front row seats at your wedding. For this reason, designating the first and second rows (and third if needed) at your ceremony is important to avoid any confusion – no one wants to play an awkward game of musical chairs because they unknowingly sat where they shouldn’t have. Often groomsmen double as ushers and are on hand at large weddings, directing guests where to go as they arrive. But for weddings of any size, ‘reserved’ seating signs can be used to ensure your big day starts out flawlessly with everyone comfortably sitting down to the celebrations that are about to begin. From welcoming floral arrangements to personalized name tags, we rounded up beautiful ideas for assigning special seating at your wedding ceremony.

If binge watching Bridgerton during the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that in order to throw a fabulous social event that will have the town talking for weeks to come, you must go BIG on flowers. As wedding florists, we couldn’t help but be inspired by the lavish soirée scenes styled with decadent blossoms that looked whimsical and curated at the same time. This got us thinking… since weddings are widely considered the most important social occasion one will ever have, arrangements and decorative elements that dazzle the eye, flirt with the heart, and push the imagination must be in order.

There’s no denying the romantic charm dancing candlelight brings to the wedding tablescape. While white and ivory are a classic choice, more couples are opting for color when it comes to lighting up their reception. What is so attractive about colorful taper candles other than beauty is their versatility – they work with just about any wedding style and type of venue. From a floral designer’s perspective, we love how colored taper candles can be used to accentuate the decorative aesthetic while creating a sense of cohesion through out a space. And one thing is for certain, colorful taper candles will elevate the room whether you make them a focal point or just scattered them across the tabletop.

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.

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.

It has been forecasted that more couples will be saying “I Do” in 2022 than in any other year over the last four decades. While the past two years have been quiet regarding trends, we can expect a re-emergence in the upcoming months of fresh ideas and bold styles like never before. Simply put, couples are holding nothing back when it comes to making a statement on their big day. What’s especially exciting is how decor, fashion, and entertainment is more focused on ‘being in the moment’ and creating lifetime memories rather than following tradition and decorum.
