We know what you’re thinking: florals for spring… groundbreaking! But at New York Bridal Fashion Week this season, the coolest floral wedding dresses for spring 2019 were all about abstract patterns, colorful embellishments and realistic-looking appliqués that reminded us of untamed wildflower fields. These dresses stood out from collections past by breaking away from tradition and incorporating flowers in ways that went beyond the everyday lace or beading. Whether you’re a flower child at heart or are simply looking to add a breath of fresh air to your bridal style, we’re confident that you’ll love these blooming beauties.
Behold, our favorite wildflower-inspired floral wedding dresses for spring 2019.
Dress: Rivini by Rita Vinieris
Rivini gave us garden goddess vibes with the use of floral embellishments and muted blush hues throughout the spring 2019 collection. This embroidered slip wedding gown is fierce but feminine, with flowers growing up the skirt and just the right amount of sparkle.
Dress: Kelly Faetanini
This embroidered tulle ball gown by Kelly Faetanini is a gorgeous option for the bride who wants a princess vibe without going over the top. The soft blue skirt, accented with multicolored 3D floral details, is floaty and ethereal — perfect for a spring garden wedding.
Dress: Willowby by Watters
When we think of folksy bridal style, this wedding dress embodies everything we want. We’re obsessed with the playful, colorful embroidery trailing down the bodice and skirt, and the burgundy velvet sash adding definition to the waist. Dare to walk barefoot down the aisle for the ultimate hippie-chic effect (the only thing missing is a wildflower meadow).
Dress: Elizabeth Fillmore
For the bride who wants to embrace a bit of whimsy while also keeping things classic, Elizabeth Fillmore’s spring 2019 wedding gowns are must-sees. The new collection is full of feminine floral wedding dresses, chic bridal suits and elegant laces, all inspired by wildflowers. This v-neck wedding dress is covered with hand-placed appliqués in an abstract “wild lily” pattern.
Dress: Alexandra Grecco
Alexandra Grecco showcased wildflower details in a more subtle way, with barely-there floral embellishments on a sleek, fitted wedding dress to embody a total cool girl style. This effortless gown is scattered with delicate wildflower and vine appliqués that gather at the hem.
Dress: Hermione de Paula
This gorgeous wedding dress takes wildflower inspiration to the next level — your walk down the aisle will feel more like a walk through fields of flowers, and really, what more can you ask for? The embroidered anemones and poppies are a super-realistic interpretation of the floral wedding dress trend, and we can totally picture this dress being worn at a woodland or forest venue.
Dress: Naeem Khan
We can always count on designer Naeem Khan to make a statement, and this wildflower-inspired wedding dress doesn’t disappoint. The oversized print is a daring and bold way to wear flowers at your wedding.
Dress: Galia Lahav
If you’re going for an edgy boho look, floral wedding dresses pair perfectly with another one of this season’s coolest trends: jackets. Rock a feathered or faux fur style for ‘70s vibes, or wear a tailored jacket to embrace the bridal power suit trend.
If you don’t want to go all out with the wildflower trend, you can still get on board by choosing a wedding dress with a floral bodice. We’re loving this romantic tulle and illusion lace style by Rebecca Ingram — butterflies optional (but encouraged).
Dress: Reem Acra
Models at Reem Acra floated down the runway in floral wedding dresses, each paired with an intricate dogwood flower headpiece. Cascading wildflowers complemented the understated ombré hues on this breezy gown.
From the tiny appliqués on the illusion bodice to the oversized blooms trailing down the skirt, this dress by Olvi’s is ALL about the flowers. We love how the flowers are mismatched and placed to provide coverage in just the right spots, while letting some skin show through for a hint of sexy.
Dress: Kate McDonald
This airy wedding dress from Kate McDonald's Spring 2019 collection reminds us of a watercolor painting, thanks to the pastel floral appliqués trailing down the bodice and skirt.
