Beautiful blooms make these bridal gowns fresh for the picking!

From the bride's bouquet and the groom's boutonnière to centerpieces, flowers are an essential part of a wedding. One unexpected way to incorporate blooms on your big day? On your wedding dress. If you're looking for a feminine and romantic gown, a wedding dress with floral details is your best bet.

After all, if you're throwing a spring or summer wedding, there's no better way to celebrate the season than with festive florals that add a touch of whimsy too. That doesn't mean, though, that only warmer weather brides are allowed to flaunt flowers. Fall and winter brides would look stunning in a dress with more dramatic floral details, be it the modern laser-cut design, or a metallic beading, but leave the tulle wrapped pastel appliqués for the March through May nuptials.

Bridal gowns can feature beautiful blooms in a number of ways. Designers like Elizabeth Fillmore, for example, chose pastel watercolor prints of lengthy stems and petals to create a painting-like effect on her designs, while Honor for Stone Fox Bride went the three-dimensional route, adorning eye-popping laser-floral embellishments that are simultaneously modern and retro. Classic brides, on the other hand, will fall hard for the intricate amount of floral appliqués and embroideries — be it Naeem Khan's handy beadwork or Reem Acra's tried and true lace and fabric embellishments.

No matter what the season or style, a bride can never go wrong with a little bit of flower power on their big day. Click through to see all of our favorite wedding dresses with floral details!
