Printed wedding gowns are a beautiful mish-mash of contemporary fashion bravery and nostalgic floral prints. Even though the prints themselves could be described as almost vintage, there’s really nothing traditional about this daring style of wedding gown.

For starters, there are many different ways in which the prints can be applied. Embroidery is one of the more traditional options, but if you’re looking for something more modern, rather opt for simple monotone prints or something in water colour. To really give meaning to your bridal look, incorporate floral prints into other areas of your wedding day. This can include printed invitations, table runners, napkins and even bridal robes for when you’re getting ready.

When choosing prints, start off by deciding whether you want big bold flowers, or something more delicate and fine. This will set the tone for your entire bridal look. From there you can start accessorising, paying careful attention to either complement the prints with statement pieces in matching colours, or sticking to simple and dainty pieces in gold or silver.

If you consider yourself to be a more traditional bride but love the idea of printed gowns, why not chat to your bridesmaids about wearing floral gowns instead? In the same vein, you can spoil your bridesmaids with printed gowns to wear while getting ready.
