Nothing says springtime like flowers, and these collections beautifully animate this idea. The style of the stunning gowns in the Marchesa Bridal Spring/Summer 2018 collection is “rooted in the serene, yet vibrant beauty of the majestic garden” of Castle Howard, a famous brick-walled garden in England, describes the fashion house. The classic silhouettes are complemented with Chantilly lace and white tulle for a flowy, fit-and-flare effect. Some gowns are embellished with ruffles and feathers to resemble the florals and greenery found organically during this season of rebirth. 

Similarly, ethereal gowns are the star of the Marchesa Notte Spring/Summer 2018 collection, as they are reminiscent of an English rose garden. Their delicacy mimics the elegance and grandeur of a garden’s blooms, and they come in an array of ivory hues, some with soft metallic details, to perpetuate the airy ambience. Beading and embroidery are layered atop tulle to represent the budding blooms. Pleating, crinkled chiffon, and 3-D floral appliqués also help to create the perennial illusion. Even if you hadn't considered faux flowers your cup of bridal tea, these collections are perfect for the woman who seeks a charming, delicate gown with hints of natural beauty.
