We decided to summarize a few of the top trends, and match them with some BunchesDirect bridal bouquet suggestions to help you create a beautiful and coordinated final look, and save on your budget. Enjoy!
1. Floral appliqués were everywhere, from large scale three-dimensional cutouts, to tiny beaded embellishments, adding a feminine yet modern element to many of the gowns. This dress: Rivini by Rita Vinieris. BunchesDirect bouquet suggestion: Spring Lady will perfectly complement the delicacy of the lacy and beading of these designs.
2. Feathers are often the embellishment of choice for spring, adding a unique and modern element to gowns. Shown here: Strapless sheath with feather skirt, Kelly Faetanini. BunchesDirect bouquet suggestion: Oriental Lily Magic, as the unique flare of the lilies provides a modern edge that balances the flare of the feathers.
3.Illusion Bodices were seen on many of the gowns on the runway, lending a bit of a daring and a sexy edge to some of the looks. Gown shown: Silk gazar dress by Reem Acra. BunchesDirect bouquet suggestion: Pink and Peach Bouquet. The soft colors will coordinate well with the organza without competing with the intricate details of the bodice.
4. Keyhole or Slit Necklines were also a popular design trend for spring. These gowns provide the elegance of a high neckline, with a bit of modern “sex appeal.” This gown: a sleeveless nude organza by Angel Sanchez. BunchesDirect bouquet suggestion: Pretty In White. The soft elegance of the roses will offset the modern edge of the slit neckline and the softly flowing lines of gowns like this one.
5.Overskirts were seen on many of the gowns, in different fabrics and sizes, which provides added elegance and drama to the dress silhouette. Shown here: Sweetheart silk-printed sheath with tulle overskirt, by Carolina Herrera. BunchesDirect bouquet selection: Graceful Blooms. This gorgeous bouquet will provide the balance and color that will work perfectly with the full skirt of these gowns.
