One way to escape the cold front the East Coast has been experiencing? By dreaming of warm-weather weddings filled with pretty floral details! And thanks to these romantic, flower-printed bridesmaids dresses from our sponsor Allure Bridals, we can't stop thinking of a whimsical garden wedding. Here are a few ways to incorporate the floral trend into your spring or summer nuptials:

An easy way to try the trend is to select a floral wedding invitation in colors that fit your aesthetic. We love this soft pink-and-green option from Julie Song Ink, but cool blues work well for a beachy affair, while black-and-white styles are fit for a classic wedding.

And though there's no shortage of creative ways to include fresh flowers in your big day, we love the look of this punchy bouquet. Filled with coral charm peonies, lush greenery, and soft ranunculus, the arrangement is equal parts bright and romantic. For an unexpected touch of floral fun, consider adorning your bride and groom chairs with hand-calligraphed signs and fresh flowers.

Whether you're hosting a relaxed or formal wedding, we love Allure Bridal's floral bridesmaid dresses. Available in two lengths and a variety of pretty prints, they're a great way to add a stylish pop to your wedding day. Plus, these are dresses your girls will actually wear again. Be sure to gift your 'maids with a few tokens of your appreciation like matching earrings or a floral-printed cosmetic case-and-eye mask set.

You can also use flowers in more abstract ways like these adorable seed packet escort cards or an illustrated cocktail menu to help drive your theme home.
