Everyone has a bride crush. Perhaps it's Kate Middleton and her trendsetting lace long-sleeve gown or Jessica Biel because of her bold blush look. For us, it's too hard to choose just one influential bride but luckily Floravere did the dirty work for us. The direct-to-consumer bridal brand, known for designing affordable gowns inspired by famous female figures, just launched it's Bride Crush collection, which pays homage to six legendary brides of decades past.
For Floravere, Elizabeth Taylor, Bianca Jagger, Carolyn Bessette, Princess Diana, Grace Kelly and Princess Margaret are the ultimate bridal crushes—and we definitely don't disagree! And according to founders Molly Kang and Denise Jin, the reason is simple. "At the heart of each of these women is the spirit of independence. A love for love that is equal to their love for their life, career, and/or philanthropic effort," they exclusively tell Brides. "To us, these brides represent women who make their own rules."
While all of these real-life women walked the aisle years ago (Princess Margaret said 'I do' in 1960!), Floravere's latest gowns match the trends of 2020. Take the C. Bessette, a minimal slip dress with a sultry naked back—a style we saw all over the most recent bridal runways. Or the E. Taylor with its sexy plunging neckline that can still match any ceremony venue. Dreamy brides should look no further than the G. Kelly, a gown made with soft layers of champagne and ivory chiffon for a timeless look.
Floravere designs for women who define their own set of standards and rules.
"Floravere designs for women who define their own set of standards and rules," shares the founders. "Who want to wear a garment that's representative of them on their wedding day. We are crushing on these icons, but ultimately our biggest crush is on all of our Floravere brides."
