What is a Floral Wedding Dress? 

A floral wedding dress may feature floral motifs in various styles and fabrics. They vary from floral lace to floral details like dimensional flowers, beading or embroideries.  

These floral designs may embellish the entire gown, like floral patterns on lace. They also could add a pop of floral flair, like 3D florals on straps or a scattering of flowers on the skirt. 

What are the Different Fabrics for Floral Wedding Dresses?  

There are so many wedding dress fabrics to choose from, and lace is one of many options to incorporate this trend into your bridal look. Organza flowers scattered on tulle or floral beaded embroideries on a satin ballgown are also beautiful alternatives for floral wedding dresses. 

Why are Floral Designs a Good Option?  

Floral wedding dresses are not only beautiful, but they also offer a whimsical vibe to your bridal look. Here are a few reasons why you may want to say “I do” to a floral wedding dress: 

  • A floral dress works for all bridal styles, from boho to glam. It all comes down to the silhouette and fabric of your wedding dress and the type of floral detail. Graphic floral laces are a modern choice for the boho bride, dimensional flowers add a touch of whimsy to an A-line and a mermaid dress with a textured floral skirt is super glam!  
  • Florals are versatile! The sky is truly the limit when incorporating floral details into a bridal gown. From modern painted florals with a pop of color to traditional floral laces, you can get your flower fix in a variety of stunning ways. 
  • Floral wedding dresses are easy to accessorize! More about this at the end of the post. 
  • These styles are stunning in any season but are an especially beautiful option for spring wedding dresses when flowers are in full bloom. Art imitates life, as they say! 

Is Floral a Fabric or a Pattern? What Styles Typically Incorporate Floral Elements? 

When talking about floral wedding dresses, we typically refer to a pattern of lace, embroidery or a printed pattern. Floral elements can be found on all wedding dress silhouettes but are especially romantic when combined with an A-line silhouette. Across aesthetics, romantic, whimsical, traditional and boho styles commonly include floral designs.

Accessories for Floral Wedding Dresses 

You’ve found your dream floral wedding dress, and now it’s time to accessorize. Accessories are a fabulous way to add your personal touch and take your floral dress to the next level. Here are a few accessory suggestions to complement your floral wedding dress. 

Veils: You can go super simple to let the florals on the dress shine or enhance them with a veil trimmed in a matching lace. Another option is veils embellished with dimensional flowers for a high-fashion look. 

Headpieces: A simple headband or comb with floral motifs is beautiful. You can also incorporate fresh flowers into your look for a whimsical vibe. 

Jewelry: A simple pair of studs or a small drop earring works well with elaborate gowns. You can play with floral statement earrings if you say “I do” to a simple dress. We recommend keeping jewelry minimal if you have a more ornate gown.
