No need to wait for May for spring flowers – today’s round up of floral lace wedding trends should tide you over for another month! My favorite time of year has to be when the flowering fruit trees start coming into blossom and gossamer petals start to bud against the rainy spring sky. Their delicate, ephemeral beauty lasts for just a week or two but there are so many gorgeous ways to celebrate that beauty even after they’re gone!

At the Ceremony
Set the scene for your spring wedding from the I Do’s on – drifts of snowy petals leading to the altar, silk blossoms cascading down a handmade background, or dramatic sprays of flowering branches lining the aisle can make for an amazing statement, but when it comes to spring decor, sometimes simple is the best way to go! I love this rustic wooden altar wound with blooming vines as the perfect way to keep the focus on the couple as they exchange their vows.

Your Wedding Dress
What could be more perfect for a romantic spring wedding than a gown with a floral lace motif? The delicate, feminine style is stock in trade for designers like Claire Pettibone and Anne Barge but even they have outdone themselves with some of these truly incredible flowering gowns! Claire’s Sky Between the Branches or the utterly romantic gown by Kelsey Genna make for a gorgeously dramatic floral wedding dress.

A Floral Veil
Veils are back in a big way! Pick a flowering pattern that complements but doesn’t clash with your dress as a beautiful way to bring a floral motif to your wedding day style.

It’s All in the Details
Bloggers and designers love it when a theme is carried in the small, unexpected ways! Rather than incorporating floral lace into your textile elements – where they’re more common – it can be a lot of fun to play with other mediums to express your design. The incredibly delicate die-cut floral pattern on the invitation by Soolip and cake by Charm City Cakes manage to make paper and sugar echo the beautiful texture of intricate embroidery. A bouquet of tiny, star-shaped flowers or lush, ruffled Juliet roses captures the same romantic aesthetic in their natural beauty.
