Sophisticated, bold, with a touch of whimsy, dahlias are one of those unique flowers that works well with just about any wedding style. Admired for their large blooms, intricate petals, and beautiful colors, they are a wonderful feature flower to incorporate in bouquets, centerpieces, and arrangements. There are many types of dahlias – 42 species in all and each different from the next. Our brides especially love using café au lait, cactus, and pompon dahlias to celebrate their big day.

If there’s one time in your life to wear something that reflects the truest you, it’s when you get married. And not everyone dreams of wearing a long, flowing wedding dress down the aisle. Just ask our featured bride Ashley. Here, she talks about her stunning Jean-Ralph Thurin ensemble and the personal touches that she incorporated into the big day.

When it comes to using orchids in wedding floral decor, brides-to-be have much to be excited about. While the Phalaenopsis is the most popular for weddings, there are other types of orchids available such as dendrobrium, cymbidium, and cattleya. Each is uniquely beautiful from the next and can be used in just about every floral decor element. From bouquets to ceremonial structures to centerpieces, here are inspiring ideas for using orchid wedding flowers.

Phalaenopsis Orchid

The most recognized of all the orchids is the Phalaenopsis. Our brides love this bloom not only for its exquisite beauty, but also for its versatility. Phalaenopsis orchids can be used in various wedding styles ranging from exotic and opulent to classic to modern. Tall centerpieces featuring lush cream and lavender roses and hydrangea complemented by descending white Phalaensopsis orchids evoke an ambiance of timeless elegance. A bridal bouquet featuring the flower in bold violet with burgundy and red roses captures the eye with dramatic flair. Give the traditional white wedding cake a makeover with a flourish of cascading natural blooms.

Founder Rachel Trimarco On 10 Years With Bride & Blossom

It’s hard to believe that our very own Rachel Trimarco, a self-professed born planner, never intended to start a career in the wedding industry. Fast forward ten years later and she’s running a successful floral design and décor company in the heart of Manhattan.

Rachel’s passion for flowers and sharp business aptitude led her to establish Bride & Blossom in 2008. Social media was just getting started. A new business couldn’t rely on posting eye-catching photos with snappy captions to attract attention and gain visibility. Rather, quality work, commitment, and maintaining excellent client relations were required. This was especially true in the wedding industry where goods and services are valued for their visual appeal and ability to meet clients’ aesthetic tastes.
