For all of you flower lovers out there, we’ve just found your DREAM gown! Meet the embroidered wedding dress. It’s a whimsical bridal fashion trend that’s popping up around the wedding scene and we’re hoping it’s here to stay! Embroidery isn’t exactly new to the fashion world. In fact, Chinese thread embroidery dates back to 3500 BC! Some say it’s been around even longer than that. Whatever the origins, designers are bringing back these gorgeous textile designs and turning the wedding dress industry into an all-out garden wonderland. If you saw our recent feature on our favorite wedding dress trends from New York Bridal Fashion Week, you’ll know there was a flurry of floral gowns floating down the runway!
These pretty dresses are for color-loving brides that want something different and unique. Whether you want head-to-toe florals or a small touch here and there, the embroidered dress will have you standing out and making a statement. We’ve gathered up our favorites and we’re sure that after you take a peak, you’ll be loving them too! Let’s start with this stunner of a gown above! Did you know that before Queen Victoria popularized the white gown we most often see today, that most brides wore blue?! This knock-out dress is by Marchesa and features a flowing blue tulle skirt and a bodice that’s encrusted with floral appliques and embroidered buds and vines. It’s captured by Love to the Core Photo and comes from this Blue and Floral Embroidered Gown shoot which was designed by Jess Albins Events. We’re in love!
If you’re digging this gown, just wait until you see the rest! Scroll along with us and enjoy all the pretty!
