Let’s be honest, one of the most exciting aspects of getting married (apart from saying ‘I do’ to the love of their life!) is finally having the chance to wear the wedding dress of your dreams. The journey to finding the right gown is a truly special one, the experience made even better by sharing these once-in-a-lifetime moments with the people you love most in the world.
As the bride, it’s a given you’ll want to feel like the belle of the ball on your big day and no doubt, you’ll want your bridesmaids to feel extra special too. These women have been by your side through life’s ups and downs, so it’s only right they have their moment to shine. Luckily, bridesmaids fashion has come a long way in recent years, which means there’s endless options to choose from, no matter what the mood and vibe for your big day.
From chic white dresses to LBDs and head-turning glittering gowns, modern brides have become much bolder with their choices with many ditching traditional bridesmaids dresses for statement designs. If you’re a spring/summer bride looking for something a little different for your bridal party, we’re here to champion wedding florals all the way up the altar and onto the dance floor!
While chic pastels and block colours are timeless, photographing beautifully, there’s something really special about romantic, whimsical florals that give a nod to the time of year, adding drama to the proceedings and creating a talking point. We’ve teamed up with AW Bridal to bring you truly breathtaking designs inspired by the beauty of nature… prepare to fall in love!
The Cirrus Dress
The Cirrus dress is the floral dress of dreams and we’re totally weak for this breathtaking design which takes its inspiration from a summer garden in full bloom. This airy, romantic, full-length gown is like something from a modern day fairytale and your bridesmaids will feel like real life princesses wearing such a special piece. The scattered dahlias, the fitted bodice, the sheer straps with delicate detailing, the A-line cut... there’s so many elements in this beautifully crafted dress to appreciate.
The Alison Dress
For a head-turning dress guaranteed to make a statement, look no further than the AW Alison gown. A truly spectacular dress, the Alison is like something straight from the pages of a high fashion editorial – and we couldn’t love it more! While it’s not for the faint-hearted, it’s a beautiful, fun and flirty option for an outdoor wedding. We’re thinking a glamorous garden party or a magnificent manor house setting. The exquisite detail in this gown is a masterpiece in its own right, the appliqué florals in a palette of peachy, pinky and purple tones making it suitable for pretty much any season.
The Patty Dress
If you thought florals were just for S/S, think again! AW Bridal predict florals will be popular for A/W 2023 and the Patty is the perfect transitional dress bringing bucketloads of drama to the party. Cut from high-quality tulle, this A-line, floor-length prairie dress seamlessly blends retro and modern design. It’s classy and sophisticated with an edgy twist and will suit any bride who isn’t afraid to turn up the heat by operating to the beat of her own drum with her bold choices!
The Dallas Dress
The Dallas dress is like a breath of fresh air with its chic, boho cut and pretty print. A feminine, flirty gown, the midi length is perfect for a warm summer’s day, bringing just the right amount of glamour to the occasion. The off-the-shoulder puff sleeves with 3D floral detailing is also special, incorporating an element of drama into what is a whimsical design. This is one of those dresses that can be worn time and time again which makes it a great investment (or a thoughtful gift for the main women in your life!).
The Muggy Dress
For a more classic, timeless, take on florals, the Muggy dress is a flirty, feminine and elegant option that will truly stand the test of time. The jewel neckline, the A-line cut and the light and airy tulle material make this one a gorgeous choice for your bridal party and is guaranteed to please all tastes, something that can be difficult to achieve! The Muggy is special enough to stand out from the crowd without overshadowing the bride – an important balance that can’t be overlooked!
