1. Felicity – Ronald Joyce
For a strikingly romantic bridal look, check out Ronald Joyce's Felicity gown. The clever use of 3D flowers and the illusion bodice elevate this floral lace wedding dress, bringing a fresh feel to a classic A-line design.
2. Genevieve Rose Gown in Moonscape – Needle & Thread
Remember, floral wedding dresses aren't only about lace. Needle & Thread's Genevieve features a bewitchingly pretty rose floral print, played out across a glorious cascade of ruffled tulle.
The overall effect is pure elegance, from the high neckline to those delicate flutter sleeves.
3. Patsy – Rime Arodaky
Florals aren't just for wedding dresses, of course - just check out Rime Arodaky's Patsy bridal jumpsuit.
Why do we love it? Where do we start?! The perfectly cut three-quarter-length trousers; that subtly sexy bodice; the floral tulle train - it all adds up to bridal style heaven.
4. Nikita – Reformation
Technically, the Nikita gown isn't part of Reformation's wedding dress collection (which is great, by the way), but we'd be remiss not to show you such a fabulous floral.
It really would work beautifully as a bridal look, from the curve-loving silhouette to the eye-catching but not over-the-top print.
5. Santa – Laure de Sagazan
You rarely see a wedding dress with a collar, but Laure de Sagazan's Santa has really sold us on the look.
This gown manages to be both regal and effortlessly cool, thanks to the refined silhouette crafted from light-as-air fabric. The subtle floral detailing on the bodice is beautifully judged.
6. Fleur – Rixo
We awaited Rixo's first bridal collection with impatience - and it certainly didn't disappoint. Their wedding gowns have the same aesthetic as their main line: easy-wearing, eye-catching and vintage-inspired.
That aesthetic is on full display in Fleur, a floral lace wedding dress that channels1970s boho. We love the central split and unlined lace sleeves, which keep the overall effect carefree.
7. Emory – Badgley Mischka
Of course, you don't have to go for all-over floral - flower-inspired design details can look wonderful against a sleek wedding dress, as with Badgley Mischka's Emory.
The 3D floral lace is particularly striking against the clean lines of the Mikado dress and organza-tulle train. Prefer the strapless look? Those off-the-shoulder straps are detachable.
8. Gardenia – House of Mooshki
If it's drama you're dreaming of, look no further than House of Mooshki's Gardenia, which combines a full-volume silhouette and colourful contrast lace.
The stunning pink floral lace flows along the bodice and trails onto the ballgown skirt, which has a two-metre train. You can amp it up further by pairing the dress with a matching four-metre cape.
9. Tiramisu & Flowers – Chotronette
Chotronette is a bridal brand to know for alternative wedding gowns, with gorgeous designs that are bursting with creativity.
The fabulous Tiramisu & Flowers is a case in point, bringing together folk-inflected floral embroidery with ethereal tulle.
10. Kamala – Savin London
Well, hello, beautiful!
The 3D floral embroidery on this Savin London wedding dress is simply exquisite, adding delicacy to the sumptuous Italian crepe.
11. Cheryl – Badgley Mischka
Looking for a romantic floral wedding dress? This Badgley Mischka design certainly fits the brief, with antique gold lace and sparkling glitter tulle.
What we love most are the delicate hand-embroidered flowers that cascade from the waist down the train of this fairytale gown.
12. Iris – Sassi Holford
Sassi Holdford's Iris is a floral fantasy brought to life.
The colourful floral embroidery is inspired by a wildflower meadow and flows across the whole dress, from the delicate bell sleeves to the fluid skirt.
13. Sol – Grace Loves Lace
If you love the idea of floral lace but want something that's different from the classic designs, check out Grace Loves Lace's Sol.
This very special wedding dress features an exclusive 'secret garden' embroidery, with optional leaf-trim armbands. It would look heavenly at a summer wedding in the countryside.
14. Gypsy Rose – Claire Pettibone
Claire Pettibone’s Gypsy Rose gown is an ethereal dream, featuring French lace over layers of floral tulle.
The extra-long train will certainly make a statement on the aisle.
15. Mini Azalea – Self-Portrait
Who says a floral wedding dress has to be long?
Self-Portrait have brought out a short version of their iconic Azalea - and the white design would be perfect as a sexy bridal gown for a stylish celebration.
16. Riley – KITRI Studio
You can still wear a floral wedding dress if your style is on the minimalist side.
This KITRI wedding dress is crafted from a shimmering jacquard fabric with a subtle rose print. It's one of those easy-to-accessorise designs that will work as well at a more casual wedding as a dressed-up affair.
17. Style 20-03 – Berta
Inspired by Japanese cherry blossom, this delicate Berta gown is an ornate masterpiece. We especially love the one-shoulder blossom vine.
Admittedly, the dress might be a little see-through for some, but you can’t deny its beauty.
18. Floral Embroidery Midi Dress – & Other Stories
Looking for a casual wedding dress for a laidback destination wedding?
This & Other Stories sundress is chic yet easy-wearing, and the floral embroidery on the skirt adds a note of prettiness.
19. Mia – Whistles
If you're looking for High Street wedding dresses, do make sure you check out Whistles - their bridal collections feature timeless designs with contemporary details.
Take the Mia wedding dress, for example. The floral lace fabric and fit-and-flare silhouette are bridal classics given an update by way of the square neckline and wide straps.
20. Cruz – Sottero & Midgley
Want some sparkle with your floral? Your wish is our command!
Sottero and Midgley's Cruz wedding dress features both sequins and floral appliqués for a magical finish. It's also available without the puff sleeves, if you're getting married in the summer sun.

21. Zinnia – Justin Alexander
Yes, floral wedding dresses can be dreamily pretty, but they can also be sophisticated - as this Justin Alexander ballgown shows.
The gorgeous floral design from the skirt reaches up to the bodice, and it's set off perfectly by the off-the-shoulder sleeves.
22. Laurie – Monsoon
Monsoon's Laurie wedding dress looks considerably more expensive than its £359 price point.
The floral lace combines beautifully with the layered tulle neckline and skirt, and the faux-pearl-trimmed waistline is a lovely finishing touch.
23. Maneesh – Rue de Seine
Maneesh is all about carefree boho glamour - and we love every inch of it.
From the cut-out waist to the paisley-floral pattern, it's ideal if you're looking for a wedding dress your guests won't have seen before.
24. Daisy – KATYA KATYA
Some like their florals big and bold; others prefer a delicately pretty approach. If you fall into the latter camp, check out KATYA KATYA's bewitching Daisy.
The dress features hand embroidered flowers on the bodice the spill over onto the light-as -air tulle skirt. It's a romantic option for a summer wedding.
25. Equivocal – Jessica Choay
This is how you take a classic bridal floral and make it cool.
Jessica Choay's Equivocal has a white cropped top that seems to float beneath the floral bodice, for a subtly sexy effect.
26. Delicious – Jessica Choay
The Delicious design - has a dress ever been more perfectly named? - is a great option if you want a hint of floral in your wedding gown, rather than going full-on country garden.
The overall effect is one of effortless elegance, with an easy-wearing column silhouette and a sheer floral lace panel.
27. Style 1342 – Martina Liana
Style 1342 by Martina Liana certainly brings the romance! 3D floral appliqués combine with an exuberantly frothy tulle skirt and a sweetheart neckline to undeniably bewitching effect. And as a finishing touch: beading that'll sparkle as it catches the light.
It's available in different colourways, and you can opt to go strapless.
28. Arya Top – Otaduy
Of course, you can always add a floral finish to a pared-back wedding dress with an embroidered bridal top - like Otaduy's oh-so delicate Arya.
This tulle top is embroidered with cotton flowers and will add interest to a minimalist gown, as well as allowing you to switch up your day-to-night look.
29. Pickford – Pronovias
Floral wedding dresses are often associated with a romantic or boho effect - but as this Pronovias gown shows, they can also serve full-throttle glamour!
This sparkling design is inspired by Old Hollywood, and from the sparkle flowers to the mermaid silhouette, it's certainly fit for a red carpet.
30. Annie – Phase Eight
A High Street wedding dress with real panache, Phase Eight's Annie features a beautiful mesh overlay embroidered with a glimmering floral design.
The details are exquisite: the high frilled neck that matches the cuffs; the sheer embroidered sleeves; the gentle kick of the fishtail hem. If you want a refined look at you don't want to spend over £350, this has to be a serious contender.
