4 Ways to Incorporate Florals into Your Wedding Day Look
Inspired by legendary female artist, Frida Kahlo, and her use of florals in art and fashion, photographer Julie Livingston wanted to showcase unique uses of flowers in today’s modern bridal wardrobe. Leave your bouquets at the door and think outside the box for something far more contemporary! Floral peplums, lush all-white orchid collars and headpieces were the result and we're in love with this fashion forward bridal style. With the expertise of stylist Lindsey Nowak, and the talented floral designer, Petaloso, this team created something extra special. Would you consider wearing florals on your big day?!
1. ORCHID COLLAR
This stunning arrangement of orchids drapes across the brides shoulders meaning you can also remove it later in the day and save it as something show stopping for the ceremony OR the reception part of your day. This all white piece is a statement but you could also incorporate color into yours and differing small blooms for added texture.
2. CARNATION PEPLUM
Want to add a little drama to your sleek silhouette? We don't blame you! This removable peplum made of carnations is a brave choice for a fashion conscious bride but we can't help but feel it could add a little fun for anyone looking for a bit of temporary or removable fashion to their wedding dress.
3. 50's STYLE FASCINATOR
For brides looking for a more vintage edge to their wedding day style, consider adding a floral fascinator to your look! This colorful one is the perfect addition to compliment most gowns whilst keeping the overall aesthetic sleek and relatively minimal.
4. STATEMENT HEADPIECE
Want to stand out from the crowd and take centre-stage a la Solange Knowles? Go full artistic display with this statement headpiece of florals (you could use Baby's Breath/Gypsophelia or similar)!
