Floral bridesmaid dresses are the new wedding trend inspired by catwalk shows. Discrete or oversized, monochromatic or colour-blocking, beautiful blooms that appear in ready-to-wear collections made their way into the bridesmaid fashion and we love the idea! As wedding colour palettes are becoming more and more complex and including various shades and even patterns, bridesmaid outfit designs start to evolve too. From embellished gowns and lace frocks to a simple LBD, anything can be a bridesmaid dress, as long as the design corresponds with the theme. And there is nothing more romantic and wedding-like than flowers, so floral prints can easily be incorporated.
Pretty floral bridesmaid dresses are ideal for spring and summer weddings; for country and garden receptions, beach ceremonies, wedding cruises and rooftop parties! Purchasing printed dresses are also a very practical choice because they are reusable and we are sure your girls will wear them after your wedding day. And since you can select patterns in so many different shades, floral prints can work for literally any wedding colour scheme.
If you need some fresh ideas for your big day, browse through spring and summer couture and ready-to-wear collections. Many Australian and international designers play with floral patterns and you can find hundreds of beautiful creations worth pinning to your inspiration board.
Romantic floral motifs appeared in many spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collections and we especially loved Naeem Khan’s vivid blooms enhanced by sparkly sequins and threads, Jenny Packham’s colourful embroideries and the ethereal three-dimensional blooms featured on Marchesa dresses. Lela Rose, Alice Temperley, Jasper Conran, Monique Lhuillier, Dennis Basso, Erdem and Reem Acra also showcased elaborate floral dresses and gowns.
But floral bridesmaid dresses are not reserved only for spring and summer weddings! Moody, darkly blooms printed on heavier fabrics are ideal for autumn and winter. And you can opt for various styles from short and girly to long and glamorous, on-the-shoulder or off-the-shoulder, and with flamboyant bows, elegant sashes or fluttery tulle overlays.
