Floral appliques - a wedding dress trend for 2009

Floral appliques are big in 2009
Wedding dresses with floral appliques are big in 2009

InStyle Weddings is constantly updating its top 5 wedding trend list and one of Zk’s current favourites is the new trend for floral appliques on your dress.

Whether as massive shoulder corsages or as beaded, jewelled or fabric decorations on your waist, hem or bust, flowers are all over the latest wedding dresses.

Small and delicate flowers, dotted all over your dress, can give a sweet feel to your look and make for a pretty but unfussy wedding dress. This Jenny Lee dress is a perfect example of this, as is the JCrew gown, featured in our recent post on strapless dresses.

Meanwhile, big blooms are a big shout out to Carrie Bradshaw’s entry piece on Sex and The City: The Movie, as you can see on the Britta Kjerkegaard dress above. The large flower adds a grandeur to the dress that means the simplest of cuts becomes a glamourous gown in a split second.

Meanwhile, you could always go for the all-over look from Elizabeth Fillmore’s Secret Garden Collection. Or check out small flower details around your neckline, which will add detail to your gown and help you out with accessories, colour schemes and even decoration.

It also looks like floral appliques are hanging around in 2010, as new collections are featuring them heavily. Check out the Rosa Clará 2010 wedding dress collection and Pronovias 2010 collection for examples.
