No matter what time of year you’re planning a wedding, a floral print dress is always a stylish choice for your bridal party. As groundbreaking as they are for spring, budding motifs and blooming bouquets befit “I do’s” any time of year, whether you choose a bold design or barely-there print for your crew. Florals are a stand-out alternative to solid colors but look equally fresh in a mixed bridal party palette to break up solid colors and add dimension. If you’re planning to wear a floral printed wedding dress, blossoming bridal party dresses are a gorgeous way to continue the theme, too!
From one-shoulder silhouettes to ruffled accents and waist-cinching styles, there are many flower-filled patterns to choose from. You can go for oversized flowers in sweet pastel colors like blush, lilac, or mint, choose stamped petals for a minimalist take, or go with an embroidered or floral lace pattern for a more intricate take on buds. For something statement-making, opt for an ‘80s-inspired floral print in saturated hues or an asymmetrical silhouette to stand out against more classic shapes.

What to Look for in a Floral Bridal Party Dress
Floral bridal party dresses are often reserved for spring and summer weddings, but they actually work surprisingly well for every season. While floral bridal party dresses in fresh pastels, punchy pinks, and bright yellows feel quintessentially spring and summer, dresses with moody floral prints in muted colors like burgundy, caramel, black, and emerald add richness and dimension to any fall or winter wedding palette. So, when it comes to shopping for floral print bridal party dresses, keep in mind what colors would best reflect your personal style and the season.
Just like how floral bridal party dresses come in many different colors, they also come in many different types of floral prints. For statement-making brides, dresses with larger-than-life floral motifs will read bold and unexpected. Looking for something more subdued? Subtle floral prints add interest and dimension to your bridal party lineup without being too overpowering.
Do floral bridal party dresses work for fall weddings?
Absolutely! Floral bridal party dresses in moody and muted tones like black, burgundy, navy, and green work especially well for fall weddings. What's more, dresses with metallic floral prints in gold and silver are a great option for festive or winter weddings.
Are floral dresses good for mixing and matching?
Yes! If you're going for the mismatched bridal party trend, add a few floral dresses into the mix for a sophisticated and eye-catching look.
How do you style a floral bridal party dress?
For bridal party dresses with big and bold floral prints, it's best to keep accessories simple and let the dress do all the talking. However, if you're going for something more subtle, you may choose to play up the floral print with nature-inspired jewelry or colorful accessories.
