Floral headpieces and crowns have adorned the head of many a bride, but just like the bride's that wear them, floral headpieces come in all shapes, sizes and colours. As beautiful blooms change from season to season so do the accessories they create, and although the winter chills are very real down under, we're looking to spring wedding flower trends and how to embrace them!
White Lily Couture Style Director and seasoned wedding expert, Alera Kingham shares her advice to help you embrace this season’s fresh flower trends. If you are planning a wedding and are in-search of the perfect accessory for your gown, she's got a few accessory ideas to add a touch of blooming beauty, illustrated so perfectly in these inspiring shoot images!
Floral headpieces are still perfect for boho brides and often worn as a contemporary alternative to a veil. More traditional brides can embrace this trend by choosing a headpiece to complement their veil. I recommend choosing a bright bloom that makes your eyes pop!
Head over heels
Dress up your wedding shoes with an anklet of orchids! A floral anklet will really stand out against the backdrop of a beach or garden wedding. The accessory will also complement a mid-length gown or a detachable skirt. There couldn’t be a more perfect way for an outgoing bride to show off her dancing shoes at a reception.
There is something quite nostalgic about adorning a loved one’s wrist with a delicate corsage – it can provide a special bonding moment between bride and bridesmaid, or parent and bride. If you disregarded a corsage because they remind you of your senior formal, I recommend giving this accessory a second chance. A simple corsage filled with lush greenery and petite blooms is a great alternative to a traditional bouquet.
Add a kiss of Spring to your hips by accessorising a strapless dress or sweetheart neckline with a floral belt. This trend is best worn with a structured bodice and will add a touch of whimsy to your wedding day. It is also a really gorgeous accessory for a budding flower girl!
