Tips for your flower wedding day theme

There’s something undeniably romantic about flowers, and so their inclusion in your wedding day is a perfect choice. In recent years, couples have become much more adventurous when it comes to incorporating a flower wedding day theme, with the role of flowers no longer simply confined to just bouquets and buttonholes. As well as physical flowers, their symbolism can be carried throughout every element of the day and so here we take a look at ways to include flowers in your wedding day.

Definitely not one for the faint hearted, but if your notions of your wedding fall less on the traditional side, show the power of petals with a statement floral wedding gown.

If you’re looking for a showstopper, and a traditional white dress won’t do, nothing screams alternative more than a printed dress. Designers have long been playing around with floral fabrics but by sticking to traditional wedding dress silhouettes, the gowns still manage to have a distinctly bridal feel about them.

Designers who get the trend just right include Caroline Herrera, Austin Scarlette and Naeem Khan, with collections including everything from soft and subtle watercolour prints to bolder creations, ensuring you can find a style which perfectly matches your personality.
