Trend Watch: Botanical Bride


October 10, 2016

Blooms have always been and still are a big part of every bride’s big day and it’s no surprise. With the huge selection of flowers out there you really can make your mark and style your wedding any way you like. From your bouquet to your table decorations it’s impossible not to incorporate flowers into your theme and they add that sense of occasion and romance to the day like nothing else can.

We have to say we reckon a wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without a generous helping of botanicals. It’s not just real flowers though, there are some of the most stunning floral inspired wedding dresses and accessories out there to inspire you.

The block heel is on trend but also practical too so no more getting your stilettos stuck in the grass hey?! These beauties by Florence combine Valentino worthy gold hardware with delicate leather flower applique. Not only do they make a quirky pair of wedding shoes but they look super cool worn with dresses and jeans over the summer months too. Definitely an investment worth making.

Klaire Van Elton is the queen of the botanical bride look and her collection exudes femininity and florals. The Brooke hairvine is one of our favourites because it's so delicate and the enamel flowers look like real daisies trailing through your tresses. It's set onto a flexible metal wire so it can be manipulated to work with your hairstyle. It looks amazing intertwined with a plait as shown below or we've seen it wound round a low bun and it looks amazing too. Work it whichever way suits you best.

Victoria Millesime has been inspired by the delicate 'Baby's Breath' flower or Gypsophila as it's also known. This pretty little white flower has taken off in the bridal world and makes the perfect beautiful and inexpensive floral accompaniment to any wedding. Model wears two pins in her hair but it looks just as gorgeous with just one.
