Floral Fanatics: The Fall-fitted Bride

Normally you’d expect the floral trend season to bloom in the springtime, when the bees are buzz-buzzing and the birds chip-chirping. But we wanted to try something different! Instead of subconsciously sinking into cooler, more desaturated values right alongside the dropping temperatures – as heaters, one by one, roar into action and simply being outdoors grows less appealing day by day – we’ve decided that this is the perfect season to don the floral aesthetic! We find the rich autumnal palette around us utterly irresistible – all the more reason to collaborate with these colors for an equally irresistible floral-patterned gown for the special day! P.S. – Dear grooms, we guarantee you’ll find it impossible to tear your gaze away once your bride steps out in full flower power!

Although going sleeveless (in the outdoors) might not be the wisest decision at this time of the year, we love the loosely embellished floral bodice and the rich teal of this bride skirt! The vibrant blue-green tone would give just the right amount of pop against the warm tones of your surroundings.

We simply can’t get over these sheer but brilliantly floral-covered elbow-length bubble sleeves! The velvet ribbon at her waist is a must-have too, because who doesn’t like velvet?

It might look conservative from the front, but subtle surprises like these not only show off your beautiful figure but are also just plain fun!

The delicate lace detailing of roses and tiny bursts of red blooms on this dress complement each other so well!
