42 Floral Bridesmaid Dresses For Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter Weddings

Shirley P. Olin

Floral bridesmaid dresses epitomize romance for a wedding, be it a formal, intimate, or black-tie celebration. From delicate ditzy motifs befitting spring to botanical blooms for a destination wedding, floral prints run the gamut. And trust, not all appear saccharine, but many indeed skew bold for tastes preferring vibrance over whimsy. A wedding’s color palette and venue are the two best ways to zero in on the best blooms for you. For a classic coloring of whites and greens, light and airy florals will elegantly blend within the scenery. At the same time, frothier pastel tones are idyllic for any spring celebration, whether a small-scale wedding set in a secret garden or a grand event in the lush grounds surrounding a historical monument. If you’re traveling to a tropical destination or following a more vivacious dress code, bright and punchy tones from tangerine and poppy to lemon to azure will dazzle.

Meanwhile, city scenes and glitzier themes make a case for ultra-sleek or adorned floral styles cut from shimmering brocade, jacquard, lustrous silk, and velvet. And for the most minimal of the floral-loving bunch, black and white blooms range from utterly fanciful to breezy enough for a pared-back beach wedding.
