Run for the Rosettes

 

Gown by Claire Pettibone

 

Spring is finally here and soon gardens everywhere will be filled with colorful blooms.  But, you don’t have to be a gardener to enjoy the beauty of spring flowers.  For their Spring 2011 collections, bridal designers have embraced the season’s natural glory and created a number of stunning styles embellished with floral elements.

If you love the feeling of spring’s natural beauty, a dress infused with flower power could be the right one for you.  From fun rosettes to elegant floral appliqués, this season’s gowns fit every wedding style.  Whether you’re having a casual outdoor garden ceremony or a more formal affair, there is a look that will suit your desires.

If your bridal style is contemporary and minimalist, take inspiration from Casablanca Bridal Couture’s sleek-chic strapless gown that incorporates figure-flattering ruching with a cluster of fabric rosettes at the hip.  For an ethereal bohemian feel, Claire Pettibone’s floaty empire waist confection features three-dimensional blooms that climb up the gown on elegant vines.

Fun floral styles aren’t just for brides.  There are a number of looks out there for bridesmaids as well.  To subtly complement a blooming bridal gown, one shouldered bridesmaid dresses with rosette details on the strap fit the bill.  Designer Bari Jay offers such a look in a menagerie of delightful spring colors.

To see the gowns mentioned above or have a glance at some other great flowery options, check out the slideshow below.  Designers shown include Jim Hjelm, Kenneth Pool, Casablanca Bridal Couture, Claire Pettibone, Mori Lee, Amsale, Kittychen Couture, Paloma Blanca, Tara Keely, and a bridesmaid look by Bari Jay.
