20 Floral Wedding Dresses That Will Take Your Breath Away
Good morning lovelies, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! With Spring just around the corner, I want to share with you this morning one of my very favourite bridal trends of the moment, which couldn’t be any prettier or more perfect for the season – floral wedding dresses! A floral wedding dress makes a blooming (sorry, couldn’t resist) beautiful choice for all of you fashion forward brides wishing to avoid the conventional or traditional and really wow on on your wedding day……
Gorgeous, feminine and utterly romantic floral bridal gowns are a pretty way for girly, chic brides to make a style statement on your wedding day – and the catwalks for 2015 were awash with them in various guises. So, whatever your style, colour scheme, theme or budget you’re sure to find the perfect floral frock for you amongst this breathtaking 20!
1. Beautiful In Blush
This is the gorgeous dress that started it all for me! Hand-painted in watercolours by the bride herself it is quite simply heavenly…..
2. Sweet Rose
Let your dress shine and keep your accessories to a minimum to avoid an overly fussy look…..
3. Alluring In Abstract
Abstract prints are slightly less girly, and creating an ombre affect with the pattern around the waist and bodice creates a stunning silhouette as well as a sense of height for the more diminutive bride…..
4. Delicate & Dewy
A simple, soft bridal updo finishes off a floral wedding dress perfectly…..
5. Bold Bodice
If all over floral isn’t for you, think about keeping the pattern to just one part of your dress…..
6. Vintage Rose
Big beautiful blooms in muted shades of dusky pink and lavender, like on this captivating gown, create a vintage feel….. and there’s a stunning blue one available too!
7. Delicate & Dreamy
I love this southern belle look, it is just so fabulously Scarlett O’Hara like! Full skirts and florals always look fabulous…..
8. Dusky Blue
Blue can look just as beautiful, whether dusky, china, duck-egg or midnight…..
9. Midnight Rose
For a more modern look, choose a striking silhouette…..
10. Fullskirt & Floral
…..or mix textures for a hint of the current 2 piece trend!
Whilst watercolour washes of pink and lavender are soft and romantic, vibrant and tropical kaleidoscope prints look just as lush…..
12. Garden Goddess
13. Heavenly Hemline
Keeping your blooms to the end of your skirt is a more subtle way to do the floral wedding dress, as well as a more flattering look for fuller figures…..
14. Bohemian Beauty
15. Ethereal Allure
Embrace your inner Titania with gossamer light layers and the hint of floral water colour…..
16. Graceful In Lace
17. Bright & Beautiful
Bold and bright hues would look fabulous for a Summer celebration…..
18. Fall Delight
Or add some opulence and keep them dark and decadent for an Autumn do…..
19. Almond Blossom
Whilst soft, romantic neutrals would work all year round…..
20. Exquisite Embroidery
And much as I love the painted or printed designs, embroidered floral wedding dresses make my heart skip a beat!
I can’t wait to see more brides waltzing down the aisle in floral wedding dresses this year! For more unconventional bridal gown ideas take a peek at this post on (the boldest of all colours for a bride) black wedding dresses, or here for other coloured bridal gowns or pop across to Chic Vintage Brides Coloured Wedding Dresses board on Pinterest – it is positively brimming with beautiful alternatives to the traditional white gown!
Oh and if you do decide to go floral (or unconventional) for your dress dress, don’t forget to keep a close eye on your groom if you’re not involved in his suit search – you don’t want him turning up in tartan or wearing a patterned shirt that might clash!
