Bride Chic: Going Floral With Your Wedding Dress

About Bride Chic
Romantic, whimsical wedding dresses and bridal hairpieces (in bright white and dusty rose)

Florals aren't exactly a new and radical concept in bridal wear but oh la la! They sure are romantic. And what options and diversity a designer has creating when it comes to planting them in collections.

Florals can decorate an entire bodice and skirt, adorn a hemline or be a small and suble accent on a belt or shoulder.

I'm always intrigued by embossed floral fibers like the Alexis Mabille dress in the last photo.

One of my favorite looks is the classic Gatsbyesque white picture hat (in last photo as well). This 1998 Frank Olive ad for Nordstrom is a study in pure design sporting a bit of Audrey Hepburn.

Another find from Martha Stewart Weddings 1998 is the Dioresque look of a floral festooned 5-inch ribbon sash (last photo). It came complete with DIY instructions.
