Love floral print but aren't sure how to incorporate the feminine design into your wedding details? Whether you want a full-fledged floral-print wedding, or you desire some smaller elements that honor your favorite motif, we've pulled together some of our favorite images from wedding events that beautifully featured flower print.

1. Wedding Invitations
Wedding invitations offer the first taste of your wedding to guests. Add a floral motif to the invites themselves, or incorporate a floral print in vintage-inspired stamps for a unique detail that your attendees will love, regardless of your actual décor theme.

2. Wedding Dress

Your bridal gown doesn't have to be white. More and more brides are adopting a fashion-foward approach with colored wedding dresses (including pink, black, red, or black-and-white bridal gowns) and even ball gowns and sheaths in floral prints.

3. Veil
Whether you choose a chapel-length veil, cathedral, or mantilla, consider adding floral embroidery or beading for a sweet feminine touch. While lace-trimmed veils are popular among many of today's brides, this beautiful detail will stand the test of time.

4. Wedding Jewelry
If you want a small part of your wedding to honor your favorite florals, choose a pair of earrings (or a bracelet or necklace) designed to resemble flowers with colored gemstones! This is a wonderful option if your groom says "absolutely not" to a floral-print theme.

5. Flower Girl Dresses

Take the term "flower girl" to an entirely new level and outfit your flower girls in beautiful dresses with floral-print fabric. For a more laid-back look, choose two mismatched dresses in various flower prints that complement each other.

7. Bridesmaid Dresses
If you don't want to dress your bridesmaids in full-on floral print, consider adding floral details by choosing a dress (or adding custom details!) that features delicate crystals in a flower motif on dress straps, sashes, or belts.

8. Mother-of-the-Bride Dresses
Although the MOB and MOG aren't part of your décor, their attire can complement your wedding theme! Floral-print dresses for either the mother of the groom or mother of the bride will add a fresh, summery feel to a wedding!

10. Chair Covers
If you're using chair covers for your ceremony or reception, consider a design that incorporates floral appliqués. For a subtle and stylish look, alternate your chair designs by leaving some ceremony seating bare.

11. Parasols

12. Menu
Since most weddings incorporate beautiful floral centerpieces on reception tables, take the flower trend one step further by decorating paper menu cards with fun floral prints. You can even have an artist handpaint your design to match the fresh flowers!

13. Linens
In lieu of solid-hued linens, incorporate a tablecloth in a floral print at your rehearsal dinner or wedding reception. The unique design will set your event apart and give your celebration a vintage, feminine flair.
