Keen followers of the latest fashion trends will know that all things embroidered are currently hot right now, and by embracing the boho spirit and summer festival vibes, floral embroidery seems to be adorning all manner of women’s clothing, from denim jackets and jeans, to casual blouses to summer bags and sandals.


Perfect for the more natural look; this type of style suits the gal who prefers a more relaxed hair styling and look – tousled hair, natural looking makeup and a pared back wedding style.

With the continued popularity of outdoor and festival inspired weddings in beautiful marquees or fabulous tepee tents, and the prospect of summer days just around the corner, the addition of subtle aspects of embroidery to your wedding can make for a beautiful look.


As with lace, this look is ultra feminine. Choose dresses with defined embroidered overlays with loosely structured underskirts. Simple understated gowns with necklines such as scoop neck or strapless work best with this look. The detail is in the embroidery.


For the bride who is a little more daring, there is the option to bring a little colour to your dress through the application of embroidery. The dress in the above slideshow does this beautifully – choose to keep the embroidery detail to the bodice and keep the rest of the dress plain; so as not to distract from the beautifully colourful design.


Of course, another option is to introduce this idea into another aspect of your bridal attire, such as your choice of headdress. The embroidered hair cap above is simply stunning and would perfectly compliment a more classic strapless style satin gown.
