If you are a bride who can't imagine wearing a traditional white bridal gown on your wedding day, you'll love the floral print trend that was all over the fall 2016 runway. Bold designs, as well as soft, barely there floral prints, characterized a number of gowns this season on a range of silhouettes including sheaths, two-piece styles, and dramatic ball gowns. While certainly ideal for spring and summer celebrations, these playful designs, which offer a hint of romance, also work well for garden ceremonies during any time of year. To ensure your attire doesn't clash with the wedding décor, be sure to select a print that complements your wedding color palette.
The Romona Keveža Luxe Bridal fall 2016 collection featured two floral prints in four styles: "Blue Tuscan Garden" was seen on a strapless silk mikado ball gown and a one-shoulder short cocktail dress, and the "Lavender Tuscan Garden" print graced a short dress with a bold red corset bodice and a glamorous halter-neck ball gown. The "Rosalia" high-low ball gown by Eugenia Couture featured a soft pink flower print, and other designers, including Lazaro, Carolina Herrera, and Jenny Yoo, created dresses in a variety of silhouettes with light floral prints. Also ideal for brides who can't part with wearing all-white on their wedding days, these floral print gowns make for great reception dresses or even chic rehearsal dinner looks.
