It is time that we issue a #trendalert, Fairies! Here at Wedded Wonderland, we are always on the look-out for new fashions and styles to show you – and we have found the one!
From the beginning of time, people have always loved flowers – they were cultivated, worn as wreathes, carried and presented as gifts. We can see this in murals by the Greeks, Romans and especially the Egyptians who revered the lotus, and arranged bouquets of roses, jasmine, poppies and lilies, long before flower prints leaped onto cloth. So, how has this been reflected in contemporary fashion?
Interestingly, embroidered silk cloths were used in Japan as an elegant way to present gifts at the highest levels of society. By the 12th century, silk was being embroidered with flowers – with the trend eventually making its way to the rulers of India and Persia, then to Italy and France.
We are in love with how this lavish trend has transitioned into different eras, constantly evolving to dynamically satisfying fashion! Here is some inspiration on how you can elegantly incorporate floral embroidery into your wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses…
If your style is a fusion of whimsical-chic, you may already be leaning towards stationary design that reflects this. And honestly, we don’t blame you! Floral embroidery can translate into almost every aspect of your special day – especially the details.
To your guests, your invitation is the sneak peek into your big day’s theme. We highly recommend incorporating light floral embroidery for a romantic tone!
Floral embroidery cake art is the way to go if you’re after a unique, yet minimalistic cake. Soft and beautiful, touches of floral embroidery use the cake as an empty canvas, allowing for endless colour schemes to suit any theme. From simple cherry blossom branches, to abstract floral arrangements to match your reception florals – the options are endless!
What do you think, Fairies? Will you be incorporating this trend into your wedding day?
