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.

Pretty Sweet: Wedding Cakes Inspired by Flowers

Flowers are our specialty. But we admit to having a sweet tooth and always look forward to seeing the wedding cakes that our brides have chosen to commemorate the day! Most often, these delicious creations make a statement, and add to the décor and atmosphere. And it’s a special treat when the design incorporates our floral motifs. The classic bride may opt for traditional white. Fresh blooms with heart accents are perfect for the ever-dreaming romantic. A towering confection embellished with cascading flowers is fit for a queen.

For the bride-to-be planning for her upcoming nuptials, we rounded up gorgeous, floral inspired cakes from our Real BB Weddings for inspiration.

Wedding Inspiration for the Modern Bride

The modern bride is not one for tradition. Her personal style is described as fashion-forward, chic, with a bit of an edge. She will choose clean and simple over lace and sparkle any day. From décor to the gown, hair, and jewelry, she keeps to a minimalist aesthetic with a surprising detail, like sculptural floral arrangements, a statement silver bridal cuff, or peek-a-boo slit.

We love when a bride walks into our showroom and says that she wants her wedding to have a modern look and feel. Subtle, yet bold, the style makes a memorable impression. Here are some favorite looks from our real BB weddings to inspire the modern bride.

Creative Ideas for Wedding Floral Décor

 We love taking wedding floral design to new and beautiful heights. While traditional wedding bouquets and centerpieces receive the most attention, there are numerous creative ways to display flowers. Highlighting blooms that are unique and totally unexpected is not only stunning, but it also brings personality and style to the ceremony and reception. For the bride who wants to make a statement, here are five creative ideas for wedding floral décor.

Suspended Blooms

To create a total atmospheric setting, hang flowers from the ceiling. The impression is similar to an art installation and will completely transform the look and feel of your venue space. A neat, rectangular arrangement of upside blooms looks chic and modern. An artful hanging display gives the appearance of a magnificent floral chandelier, while staggering blooms overhead casts an air of romantic enchantment.

Flowers and Frosting

A wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without a show stopping cake; the first piece cut as a newlywed couple, shared with joy, love and laughter. The cake is displayed for all to admire throughout the night until the treasured cake cutting ceremony where its details, design and individuality are greatly notice and appreciated. The evolution of the traditional wedding cake has progressed from a simple sheet cake to now offering multiple layers, tiers and decadent accents. One of the newest trends in the wedding industry is not only making flowers out of edible pieces such as frosting and sugar, but also featuring real flowers on the cake. This trend is hitting the scene in a great way, and is one that we can’t believe took so long to get here! The idea of incorporating your bridal flowers onto your cake ties the theme together beautifully and is a great way to ensure a one-of-a-kind picturesque confection.
