Floral Wedding Dresses
If you want to make a statement with your bridal look, why not opt for a floral wedding dress? You can find stunning gowns with floral embroidery, appliques, prints or lace. A floral wedding dress can be whimsical, bohemian, vintage, or modern, depending on the style and colour of the flowers. See a bit of floral bridal inspiration from some of our Dickie Bow customers.

Another way to incorporate floral patterns into your bridal outfit is to wear floral accessories. You can wear a floral crown, a floral hair clip, a floral necklace or bracelet. Or how about adding some floral detailing into your wedding day shoes for a subtle nod to the season.
Dress your bridesmaids in floral patterns. Your bridesmaids can also join in the floral fun by wearing dresses with floral patterns. You can choose dresses that match your wedding colours or mix and match different patterns for a more eclectic look. Floral bridesmaid dresses can be long or short, fitted or flowy, depending on your preference.

Your wedding stationery can also reflect your floral theme by using floral patterns and motifs. You can use floral invitations, save-the-dates, menus, programs, place cards, and thank-you cards.
Decorate your cake with flowers
Your wedding cake can also be a showcase of your floral theme by using fresh or sugar flowers as decorations. You can choose flowers that match your bouquet or centrepieces or go for a more contrasted look.
