Floral wedding dresses add a soft and distinctive twist to traditional bridal style. They have long surpassed trendy; they are timeless and oh-so-beautiful! Floral gowns are worn by brides who prefer all kinds of aesthetics, whether it be refined, romantic, boho or modern! From delicate floral embroidery to bold 3D appliqués, there is a floral wedding dress for every bride at True Society.
What Is a Floral Wedding Dress?
Floral wedding gowns combine traditional bridal style with modern, eye-catching patterns that make you stand out. From bold prints in bright colors to elegant 3D roses, these often romantic designs are sure to turn heads and make a statement. Floral wedding dresses come in all different styles and designs and can be seen in all kinds of silhouettes, from classic A-lines to stylish fit-and-flares, so you’re sure to find one that fits your personal style and body shape.
For instance, a touch of floral appliques on the bodice of a dress with a clean A-line skirt is a go-to for classic brides seeking a bit of detail and texture. For boho brides? They will blossom in all-over fitted lace wedding dresses with tulle puff sleeves. For brides craving a soft and delicate look, flowy chiffon with glittering floral lace will look absolutely stunning.
The Best Floral Wedding Dress Fabrics
Floral wedding dress fabrics come in a variety of textures and colors, so brides are sure to find a fabric that suits their style. Choose from styles like lace, satin, tulle or chiffon, depending on what you’re looking for:
- Lace is often used as an overlay on other fabrics or as the entire dress itself. It’s lightweight and delicate, making it a beautiful option for summer weddings that take place outdoors.
- Satin is heavier than lace but just as soft and elegant. Satin floral dresses look stunning at a formal black-tie wedding.
- Tulle is lightweight yet strong enough to hold its shape throughout the day, it also makes a beautiful backdrop to help those floral design details pop.
What Season Are Best for Floral Dresses?
When thinking of floral wedding dresses, spring and summer weddings may come immediately to mind, but the truth is floral dresses are beautiful any time of year! Depending on the style of the floral pattern, they can certainly be suitable for fall or winter weddings.
For instance, a long sleeve dress accented with floral lace will look beautiful on the bride walking down a snow-covered aisle in the winter. For a spring wedding dress, on the other hand, a bride may choose to wear spaghetti straps with floral appliques on the bodice. It’s all about how it’s styled and worn!
Is Floral a Fabric or a Pattern?
A floral wedding dress can be either a fabric or a pattern. Floral fabrics tend to be made out of light, airy materials like chiffon and organza, while floral patterns are usually printed onto the fabric. Floral patterns often include delicate flowers in shades of pink, blue and green on top of beautiful lace, sleek fabric or intricate detailing. Floral fabrics provide a subtle yet romantic touch to any bridal gown, while patterned floral wedding dresses add an extra dose of personality to the look.
