Whether you’re getting married in the country or the city, romantic runway trends are so pretty and feminine this spring, every girl can’t help but wish it was them walking down the isle this spring. Designers, such as Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang incorporated Monet-inspired motifs and coiled rosettes in bridal gowns for spring. From blossoming prints and details, to decorative flower girl dresses and bridal party gifts, ceremonies are becoming more and more personalized and modern. Brides and planners have been dishing about small details and ideas you can add to you big day, so here are some of my fav’ fashionable ideas for your bridal party!
Bridesmaid Dresses: Floral motifs for dresses this season are perfect for eluding the traditional single color dress. If you’re dressing your party in a traditional solid hue like one from David’s Bridal, you could add some unexpected details. For a ‘gardenesque’ feel, try flower pins to the waist or neckline, as seen on the Rochas Spring 2010 runway looks. Boleros in rose motifs or fabrics are a chic alternate to the usual pashmina shawl or wrap.
Bridal Accessories: Many brides and bridal party styles have opted for simpler designs to leave way for gorgeous accessories. Birdcage veils are retro-chic this year and piling on rose appliqués and feathers entwining your updo’ or throughout loose tendrils. You can personalize your flower girls’ looks by decorating wreathes and the flower girl basket with the chosen flowers and fabrics.
Décor: Keeping it personalized and DIY looking is very much a “do” this season. I have seen some really cool ‘outdoor’ ideas from Mason jar/coke bottle flower pots filled with field daisies and pin wheels to personalized apple pies and vintage lace handkerchiefs for wedding favors.
