The top wedding experts seem to be on the same page when it comes to forecasting wedding trends for 2023 – it’s going to be an incredible year to say ‘I do.’ Extravagant welcome and after-parties, mismatched bridesmaids dresses, regal bridal attire, Art-Deco style engagement rings, and cash registries were repeatedly mentioned in conversations about ‘what’s in’ for 2023. Reading through the various lists, we placed our focus on flowers and decor. What struck us about these ‘trends,’ a term we use very loosely, is that they are not trends at all. By this, we mean an ‘of the moment thing’ that looks cool on Instagram, but has no hope of aging well. Rather, these ‘trends’ point toward a collective shift in couples’ perspectives regarding how they want their wedding to look and feel in a ‘post-pandemic’ moment. Our lives have been forever changed. Naturally, the way we approach major life events will be different too. Pomp and circumstance give way to authenticity and sentiment revealing the current mood for 2023 – weddings are to be joyful celebrations bursting with unfiltered love and emotion.

We couldn’t have dreamed of a better way to kick off the new year than with the news we are about to share with you. Real BB Weddings couple Asya and Anders’ luxe tropical-inspired wedding is featured in Bridal Guide Magazine’s March/April 2023 issue. We partnered with ES Blooms to transform the couple’s waterfront home into a blossoming island paradise. From the lush tropical flowers that included coral, purple, and pink Phalaenopsis orchids, birds of paradise, anthuriums, and rich greenery to the unique decorative details to the rattan and bamboo furniture and celestial canopy lighting, no monstera leaf was left unturned in creating a vibrant atmosphere of a destination celebration. “This was an incredibly unique wedding and an amazing collaboration with such a talented group of vendors,” Bride & Blossom Founder Rachel Trimarco looks back and says. “So much more goes into the design and decor when you are bringing everything in. The bride was delightful from start to finish and gave our team true creative license. Bringing the tropics to a Long Island waterfront setting was magical. Seeing it all come together the day of was one of the highlights of 2021!”

To say that 2022 has been an unprecedented year for weddings would be an understatement. It was predicted that more couples would say “I Do” in 2022 than in any other year since 1984. While exact numbers aren’t in yet, our sense is that we’re close to hitting the mark. As wedding florists, we saw firsthand how getting married in a post-pandemic moment influenced our clients’ decisions. Perhaps it had to do with the slowing down and reflection that happened during 2020-2021, but couples were more willing than ever before to take risks and be creative when it came to flowers and decor, attire, food, and entertainment. Expectations about everything being ‘perfect’ gave way to being fully present during this once-in-a-lifetime event. While many of the weddings we are about to highlight look spectacular on an aesthetic level, upon further inspection, you will see that they are speckled with unique and meaningful details that are a sincere expression of the couple’s love and personality. Please join us as we look back at the Real BB Weddings of 2022.

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. Imagine being welcomed to a church ceremony with entrance stairs lined with greenery and candles, or turning the corner in a centuries-old mansion to discover a twisting staircase adorned with a mélange of fresh flowers.
