The Plaza Hotel Wedding Flowers & Decoration by NYC's Big Apple Florist

Posted on August 20, 2013

Sometimes weddings have to get back to the basics: white flowers, white decorations and white candles—adding that touch of simple elegance and style. We at Big Apple Florist had the extreme pleasure of providing The Plaza Hotel wedding flowers and decor in New York for the wonderful couple, Jarrod and Ina.the-plaza-hotel-wedding-flowers Although they wanted to keep the color scheme simple, booking The Plaza Hotel as their wedding venue meant the couple had grand expectations.  We were eager to rise up to the challenge and provide the wedding decor as well as take on the task of floral wedding planning for this NYC couple’s monumental moment.

White Wedding Flowers for The Plaza Hotel Centerpieces

The couple had a simple wish of having all white for their Plaza Hotel wedding flowers. So, as Manhattan’s favorite flower shop, we had to come up with a way to make this neutral color pop out to the eyes of the guests without it looking too drab and plain. Our plan was to use 40-inch tall sleek Annabelle glass vases filled with an abundance of gorgeous, fresh wedding flowers to compliment this Plaza Hotel wedding. We incorporated:
  • White Phalaenopsis orchids
  • White hydrangeas
  • White delphinium
  • Polar Star roses
  • White dendrobium orchids
  • White pear branches
We wanted to go with height for the wedding centerpieces as they come up to a towering 7-foot as this went well with the low votive candles on every table.

Wedding Planning to Present the Perfect Plaza Hotel Chuppah

In addition to the Plaza Hotel wedding flowers, the wonderful couple also requested a Chuppah for the event to symbolize the strong home that the couple would build together after taking their vows. This was the most important part of their wedding planning at the NYC Plaza Hotel, and our florists wanted to capture the couples dream wedding perfectly.


We here at Big Apple Florist are happy to say that the wedding couple had tears of happiness when seeing their grand Chuppah. We decorated the 15-foot wide and 12-foot tall structure with white delphinium, white dendrobium orchids and white Phalaenopsis orchids. To give the flowers more depth and the structure a rustic look, we added the white pear branches for a nice touch.

Final Wedding Décor Touches of Elegance

The final item for this couples' wedding planning at the NYC Plaza Hotel was to have an elegant wishing tree for guests to hang their warm regards and well wishes for the couple on this special day. We decided on six-foot tall Mountain Laurel branches with white flowers on the bottom, hanging white ribbons and hanging mercury candles. All the items added that elegant style making it the perfect decor piece to give that final touch of elegance to the room.
