It's amazing how one subtle style detail can inspire an entire wedding. Case in point: the silk petal details I first noticed on these Badgley Mischka heels (style name: Randee). I loved the ruffled petals on the T-strap sandals and clearly many brides did, too—the style quickly became one of the most popular wedding shoes I've seen in a long while (inspiring many knock-off versions, too). Then, I came across this stunning cake by Sweet Sensations, a bakery located near Atlanta. Inspired by this Lazaro wedding gown with a laser-cut chiffon skirt, the cake features sugarpaste "wafers" individually cut and affixed to each tier. Dress your bridesmaids in a flirty dress like this pink number by Moschino Cheap and Chic, featuring a hemline of tiered organza petals. And, finally, wrap yourself in this fantastic silvery bolero by Va Et Vien for BHLDN, featuring layers upon layers of hand-cut silk organza petals—the finishing touch to your petal-inspired wedding style. —Heather Lee
