How could one not get inspired when they first lay eyes on the latest couture creations making their way down the runways during Fashion Week? With the endless yards of luxe fabrics, epic embellishments, and unexpected silhouettes, the designer duds couturiers send down the runways give us enough wedding dress inspiration to last the whole year. But we aren't the only ones feeling inspired. These New York florists used the new couture collections as their own personal muses to create six seriously stunning wedding centerpieces.

Inspired by this piece from the Armani Privé Spring 2016 collection, Brooklyn floral designer Denise Fasanello used a laundry list of blooms — ranunculus, delphiniums, anemones, hyacinths, garden roses, muscari, and more — to create an arrangement that's "elegant and chic but still has lots of movement," she says. "I especially love how the frilly sweet-pea blossoms perfectly mirror the flowing silk pleats on the dress." (Price upon request, Denise Fasanello)

To channel this earthy-but-glam gown from Valentino's Spring 2016 line, designer Todd Rigby of VSF used serious foliage (eucalyptus, jasmine vines, dusty millers) as the backdrop for a garden-fresh array of spray roses, phlox, lilacs, and lisianthuses. (Price upon request, VSF)
Manhattan floral designer Olivier Giugni of L'Olivier Floral Atelier used phalaenopsis orchids as the spotlight for this chic white-on-white arrangement inspired by a Giambattista Valli Spring 2016 minidress. Dianthuses, lisianthuses, and white lilacs fill out the look. "We used diverse textures to capture the layers and ruffles of the fabric," he says. (Price upon request, L'Olivier Floral Atelier)
Fringed tulips and novelty roses create a dense field of color in this over-the-top centerpiece by Lisa George at Michael George Flowers. "The concept was tight and sculptural on top and looser and lush at the base," she says of the arrangement, inspired by a show-stopping Ralph & Russo gown. "The dress is unquestionably bold, and so is the centerpiece." (Price upon request, Michael George Flowers)
Brittany Asch of BRRCH paired the silver and nude tones of Earl Grey roses, carnations, and lilacs with feathery agonis and chocolate cosmos to create this centerpiece inspired by Chanel's Spring 2016 edgy-fem look. "I added dark accents for contrast and edge," says Asch. "I wanted it elegant but also a bit glam." (Price upon request; BRRCH)
