Brooklyn: the new Manhattan. Whether you’re a resident of this storied borough, a visitor, or someone who loves Brooklyn style but lives far from the shores of New York, there are endless ways to incorporate a Brooklyn-vibe into your wedding. Here are five of our favorite details:
1. The Floral Bike
One of the trademarks of the Brooklyn lifestyle is the fixed-gear bicycle, which is the perfect blend of stylish, healthy, and environmentally-friendly. This floral-embellished bicycle from a Bride & Blossom wedding held at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a great way to set the mood for your guests upon arrival.
Cornell Business Review featured an interview with our founder and CEO, Rachel Trimarco, this month. Rachel speaks about the importance of web-based marketing and how the floral design and wedding industries have changed in the past few years.
Social media has really revolutionized the wedding planning industry and the floral industry as well because my brides share images. We get tagged, photographers tag us, we tag photographers. We have everything in our Instagram and Pinterest feed… The whole industry changed about three years into me starting my business which was right at the time when I was ready to start taking it to the next level.
One wedding photo that always makes us smile is the bridesmaids’ bouquet shot. Being surrounded by best friends and sisters is a beautiful moment for brides and good wedding photographers make sure to capture it. Formal wedding party portraits are classic, and playful or candid pictures are perfect for capturing personalities. But we have a soft spot for pictures of brides and bridesmaids posing close together, holding out bouquets to form a giant cluster of flowers.
We suggest asking your wedding photographer to take three types of bridesmaids photos: classic wedding-party portraits suitable for framing, shots that show off your wedding flowers, such as the clustered poses pictured here, and some wildcard photos of you and your girls being silly. Group leaps and jumps are popular for capturing that exhilarating wedding joy. Faux sexy-serious poses are also entertaining. What you want is wedding photos that reflect the spirit of your particular friendships. But if your group is having trouble letting loose, ask your wedding photographer for suggestions. Being directed to twirl, form a kick-line or throw all bouquets into the air will probably result in lots of laughter. And those may turn out to be your favorites. Read More
