While choosing your wedding flowers is exciting, seeing the examples flooding your Instagram feed and Pinterest can make the decision process feel overwhelming. With all the items still needed to tick off on your to-do list, you may be tempted to put off choosing floral decor. We get it. Picking vanilla lemon buttercream does feel like you are doing something, and a sense of satisfaction comes with putting a check mark next to ‘order cake.’

From both a logistical and creative standpoint, meeting with a florist earlier rather than later makes the experience of wedding planning as whole less stressful and intimidating. Flowers belong in the ‘important’ category right alongside finding a venue and wedding dress. When you knock out the ‘biggies,’ details such as signage, escort cards, favors, and signature cocktails become smaller pieces of a puzzle that fall into place. Read on for our break down of six reasons why you should prioritize selecting your big day blooms.

Distinctive, dynamic, and versatile come to mind when thinking about the table decor ideas that we are going to highlight. Trading out the single centerpiece, grouped arrangements offer endless design and styling opportunities for your wedding reception. Typically composed of three or more small arrangements, they can feature a floral recipe evenly distributed through the composition or one type of flower in each vase, exuberant color or a monochrome palette, vessels of different sizes and shapes or a uniform collection. Whether your wedding style is classic and sophisticated, contemporary chic, or whimsical garden, the creative possibilities using grouped arrangements are limitless.

The goal is to find a boutonniere that is unique, but also aligns with your overall floral design whether the theme is classic, natural, or modern. To help you pin down the perfect look, we went through the Real BB Weddings archives and rounded up distinctive blooms worn by our grooms over the years. Stylish, bold, and unpredictable, here are fresh boutonniere ideas for spring and summer.

When Anna and Michael met at the end of 2020 during the pandemic, dating was anything but casual. “Life still wasn’t back to ‘normal,’” Anna remembers. “Because many places to socialize weren’t open, we immediately spent a lot of time together.” The situation was to Michael’s favor because he was on a waiting list to get a new puppy (It was Michael’s profile photo with his parents’ puppy that initially caught Anna’s attention). “I was really excited when it finally arrived,” she says. “Michael goes to work very early every day. I was working remotely so he asked me to stay over for a week to help.” Raising a puppy in New York City isn’t easy. “My patience was definitely tested. I threatened to go back home a couple of times,” she jokingly says. “That first week turned into me pretty much moving in and we have been inseparable ever since.”

When it comes to weddings, nothing elevates the ambiance, literally and figuratively, like dramatic ceiling decor. Hanging flowers and fixtures can completely transform a space, turning it into a dreamscape perfect for a once-in-a-lifetime event. Suspended designs can be used to create a focal point over the archway or dance floor, or to cast an immersive atmosphere all around.

Meeting with clients, we get a sense that hanging florals are thought to fall under the categories of ‘whimsical’ and ‘fairy-tale’ in terms of aesthetic. “I want my wedding to look sophisticated and timeless, and we are getting married at a classic venue. How can hanging decor possibly work in a setting like ours?” We’re here to tell you that hanging decor aligns with every type of wedding style from polished elegance to secret garden romance. We’ve dressed the ceilings of historic castle estates and luxury ballrooms as well as chic downtown lofts. Read on for high-impact ceiling decor ideas that will impress guests while creating a spectacular scene for your special day.
