Flowers and florals tend to dominate weddings, but you needn’t stick to the traditional when wearing them on your big day. Instead, be inspired by the stars at the 2017 SAG Awards this week, and wear yours in unexpected styles.

Want to know the new way to wear floral for your wedding day look? Here’s 6 good ideas.

1. Buy Embroidered Buds

Brides hoping to do something ‘different’ dress-wise might opt to avoid silks or satin and instead go for a romantic texture. And, if lace or ruffles just aren’t your thing, feminine, loved-up feels can certainly be achieved with a floral print.

Right now, better than just a print is an embroidered one, with needle craft having a bit of a moment – as noted when Emily Blunt hit the red carpet in this bud-embroidered gown.

We’d love to get our hands on this hand-embroidered gown by Sumarokova Atelier – it’s pretty, elegant, yet not your a-typical bridal look.


Or how aobut this vintage 20’s dress by Marvellous Vintage? It’s very close to Emily’s, vibe-wise.


2. Punk Petals

Proving that florals can totally be edgy if you want them to – even while popping a preppy collar – is this punk-inspired gown worn by actress Claire Foy.

The sheer black layer, ladled with leaning snowdrops, is super beautiful look for any bride that doesn’t fancy herself in a traditional, ‘grown up’ wedding gown. And this pretty, layered number by Fede Fashion is an option to channel those same youthful vibes.


Emma Stone also had the idea, rocking her floral print on a deconstructed dress that revealed a rock’n’roll helping of black lace. Love it.

4. Blinged Out Bud-Work

Flowers typically exude elegance, but why not shoot for opulence? Actress Taraji P Henson wore it well with climbing bead-work, and looked just delicious!

This sequinned, pink, bud-enhanced gown by Dioma Fashion is just beautiful and bares similar elements to Taraji’s.

5. 3-D Flowers

Because the only thing better than a real flower, is one made out of fabric, so it’ll never, ever wilt. And showing off a few ways that three-dimensional daisies can look good, are actresses Natalia Dyer, Janelle Monae and Kaley Cuoco.

The easiest way to wear florals on your terms? With a uniquely-placed corsage, as demonstrated by the cool cats on the SAGs red carpet.

Wear yours on your dress strap like Naomi Harris or on your hip a la Kate Hudson. We like these corsages and buttonholes by Flower Design Events, as well as this gown that comes complete with corsage detail from our BoShow Festival vendor, Shehurina.
