Gowns & Suits
The New York Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2019 runways provided a fresh crop of wedding ideas. When it comes to wedding fashion and especially for Spring, there's no shying away from all things floral. Here, the latest ways to wear the look.
We're making a beeline for this A-line. Eye-catching embroidered appliques take this classic silhouette for a glamorous spin. Image: Reem Acra Proof that covering up is far from matronly. This regal Reem Acra A-line gown features exquisitely detailed lace with a barely-there bodice, as well as a sheer skirt to show off hints of your gams.

This ensemble pairs sleek tailored anke-grazers with the dreamiest floral-floral appliqued overlay - stunning for a glamorous ROM ceremony or a sophisticated restaurant soiree. Salvadoran designer Francesca Miranda introduces another contemporary element with graphic lines across the skirt. Image: Francesa Miranda Not into wedding white but not quite up for bold hues?

And if that wasn't statement enough, she fastens oversized blooms and brightly coloured ribbons for extra impact. Image: @verawanggang/Instagram Cover image backdrop: Panya Khamtuy/123rf.com
