Floral wedding gowns with voluminous, rosette-embellished skirts and exquisite, hand-beaded blossom-adorned corsets have long been a popular choice among brides, but this season the time-honoured bridal fashion accent has truly been re-imagined with ultra-feminine blooms popping up in a variety of chic new ways. Designers such as Sareh Nouri, Oscar de la Renta, Amsale, Theia and Terry Fox (to name a few!) are using colour, embroidery, lace and even ruffled embellishments within their Fall/Winter 2012 and Spring 2013 collections to reinvent floral wedding gowns for the modern bride. This is one reinvigorated trend designed to stand the test of time.
