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.
