What could be prettier than a wedding inspired by petals? This ultra-romantic wedding theme can work well during any season, but it’s particularly perfect for a Spring or Summer celebration where blooms and petals are in abundance. From dresses to décor, find out how you can pull off this utterly gorgeous theme with our fabulous ideas…

What better way to kick-start our petal applique wedding inspiration than with the bridal outfit? Your aisle style is one way you can effortlessly incorporate applique details into your big day – whether they’re elaborate or dainty, they’re guaranteed to look gorgeous. Applique petals add a feminine and unique touch to your wedding dress. Gowns elaborately adorned with blush pink petals look show-stopping, as do delicate applique details around the neckline or hemline. The fabulous thing about applique is that there are so many divine designs to fall in love with, and you really will be spoilt for choice.

The pretty petal details don’t just have to stop at your wedding dress. You’ll look oh-so-elegant walking down the aisle wearing a veil with subtle floral applique, or why not opt for a pair of exquisite bridal heels that are covered in glitzy floral embellishment?

Don’t forget about accessorising your wedding hairstyle – Glitzy Secrets have a wonderful collection of floral-inspired hair accessories. I particularly love the Beautiful Romance Headpiece and the Timeless Petals Headpiece – both will give a fabulous finishing touch to your bridal look.

Your bridesmaids will adore wearing gorgeous gowns adorned with petal applique – team with flower crowns for a bohemian-inspired wedding look.

Consider opting for floral illustrations and designs when it comes to your wedding stationery. It’ll help set the scene for your guests, and will add a bloomin’ lovely touch to your pretty petal wedding theme.

Let’s move onto your wedding food and drink – and where to start?! Tempt your guests with a stunning wedding cake – you could ask your cake maker to give your icing a petal applique effect, or you could adorn the icing with beautiful sugar flowers. Macarons and cupcakes decorated with pretty rose petals could be a sweet alternative to traditional canapés – add an extra dash of floral inspiration by using flavours such as lavender and rose water in your tasty treats.

When it comes to your ceremony, I love the thought of lining the aisle with petals – it’ll help tie your applique theme in together and it would work perfectly for a blossoming Spring wedding. Ceremony backdrops are predicted to be big new in 2017 and a floral backdrop will create the perfect setting to say ‘I Do’.  When it comes to that beautiful confetti moment, provide your guests with buckets of dried petals – but always double-check with your venue that they’re happy for you to use petal confetti.  Clear vases and bowls filled with blush petals look striking as a bases for a tea light or pillar candle, while chair covers sewed with applique detailing will give your venue the ‘WOW’ factor.

Using petal applique as the main inspired for your big day means you’re bound to have a truly beautiful wedding.
