Black Tie/Glamorous Wedding

When having a formal event, the flowers are central to the décor at the ceremony and reception. For centerpieces, think big, beautiful flowers clustered together in large centerpieces like the one shown here, which includes white hydrangeas, succulents, and thistles. 


For a memorable cake that makes a statement at a formal wedding, try something unique, like a croquembouche. This one, made by Westchester Country Club pastry chef Cara LaRocca, serves 200 people and is filled with maple cream.


Nothing says “black tie” more than a floor-length dress and a classic color (like black), making this a perfect pick for the bridesmaids of a formal affair. Change up the silhouette to accommodate different shapes and sizes.

Every bride wants to dance the night away and feel comfortable and beautiful. We love these bejeweled shoes from Badgley Mischka, which are elegant enough for a black-tie wedding yet fun enough that you can wear them again after you’re back from the honeymoon.

Cuff links complete a groom’s look, especially when it comes to a traditional tuxedo. They also make a great gift from the bride and are something he will have and wear forever. Back to homepage
