When it comes to the usage of flowers in weddings, there is a rich history. They are used in virtually every aspect of the wedding, from the flower girl's petal-sprinkling on the aisle to the bridal bouquet to the decor. Wedding dresses frequently feature flowers as a major motif in the form of floral patterns and designs.


Who says you may only transport floral arrangements on your wedding day? Why not also wear flowers? We adore wedding gowns with floral motifs, whether they feature 3-D floral appliqués, flowery lace embroidery, or vibrant hand-painted flowers. The pattern instantly adds a beautiful, ethereal, and feminine touch to any theme or setting, but it looks especially stunning during Orlando garden weddings and other outdoor ceremonies and receptions in and around Winter Park. The fact that bridal dresses often have flowers is absolutely lovely as well.


This floral custom has its roots in the days of ancient Rome. Roman weddings frequently featured flowers as decorations because they were seen as representations of new beginnings, faithfulness, and fertility.


In Middle Age bouquets, herbs predominated over flowers, particularly dill and garlic, which were thought to ward off evil spirits and bad luck. At the wedding feast, the dill made a second appearance to prepare the newlyweds for their night of matrimony. Indeed, even our distant ancestors were aware of the benefits of aphrodisiac foods.


By the Victorian era, giving and receiving flowers was a common practice for expressing affection. Following the romantic motif, they eventually came to be associated with weddings.


Top bridal designers like Monique Lhuillier, Lazaro, and Martina Liana incorporate floral inspiration into their bridal gown collections. They make sure to keep things romantic and distinctive, such as by lining the bottoms of skirts with floral elements, inserting flowers in key locations throughout the length of dresses, and even using flowery motifs to outline the necklines so that they stand out. A wedding dress with floral motifs is wonderful since it may fit any bride's aesthetic, whether it be boho-chic, contemporary vintage, or more traditional. There are so many distinctive blooming gowns to pick from since there are so many diverse methods that designers may incorporate florals into their wedding dresses.


If you’re considering a floral bridal gown, our Monique Lhuillier Bridal Trunk Show is a can’t miss! We will be featuring the 2023 Collection September 29-October 1, 2022.



Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2023 Bridal Collection“ embraces La Dolce Vita. Inspired by the romance of Sicily, this season is an exuberance of volume, texture and color. A joyous take on heritage silhouettes, pushing prints even further, color palettes are saturated and bold! Exaggerated embroideries in multiple colorways add dimension, romance, and whimsy while sculpted corsetry and tailored jackets offer timeless elegance. A wool suit, topped with a colorfully embroidered elbow length veil, evokes a modern Apollonia. Exposed shoulders and shorter hemlines inspire the fashion-forward bride. High-low hems showcase the statement shoe of the season - a delicate strappy sandal with playful ostrich feathers. Dramatic capes and Watteau trains complete each look, while long opera length gloves are the quintessential finishing touch.”
