This fishtail style dress from Pepe Botella’s Dawn 2012 Collection is floral-tastic. A stunning design, the floral theme carries through from the asymmetric, double floral embellishment on the shoulder to the highly detailed rosette skirt and train. A simple white rose posy, hand tied at the stem, would finish this look perfectly for a summer wedding in a church or grand hotel.

Adding a statement bolero to a fishtail-style wedding dress will always give a bride some serious fashion edge — as well as balancing her silhouette. Designed by D’Zage, this glorious dress, with a low flower and ribbon corsage, flares out from the knee and is given exactly the right shape with a flattering floral jacket, embellished heavily (and stylishly) on the shoulders.

- Ian Stuart
From the Killer Queen Collection, Constantine is a killer dress; signature Ian Stuart, it is luxurious, light and dreamy with a romantic effect as you glide up the aisle. The sweetheart neckline is complemented beautifully by asymmetric draping and a perfectly-placed trio of handmade, contrasting coloured roses, at the hip. Another three roses nestle gracefully in the floaty skirt.

Kate Middleton set the trend with her wedding dress, but if you want to capture the lace look without going OTT, this removable floral lace jacket is the perfect compromise. Fastened with a tie at the back, this chic accessory is made with Italian guipure lace and the long sleeves and bateau neckline are incredibly flattering and feminine. Wear over a simple, column gown for a fantastic floral effect.

High-low dresses are a huge fashion trend at the moment and you can take catwalk style to the altar with this lovely floral design by Tobi Hannah. The all over satin rose appliqué looks perfect on the arched hem skirt and the simple bodice would lend itself well to a colourful, crescent-shaped bouquet. From the spring 2013 collection, this is a great choice if you want to show off your legs.

Rosette details in a full, bustle skirt look sensational. This Blue by Enzoani Edinburgh design also proves that floral fashion can make more than one statement — the contrast, pleated ribbon sash adds a fabulous finishing touch, framing the look perfectly. When wearing such a dramatic style, keep your shoes, hair and accessories minimal and let your dress do all the talking.
