Considering our penchant for all things floral and garden-themed at Shirley & Audrey, it should come as no surprise that we love the idea of a garden wedding. The lush greenery and fresh blossoms make for a dreamy and romantic atmosphere that can be tailored to your personal style, whether your style icon is Daisy Buchanan and you love all things Art Deco or Elizabeth Bennet and you want a natural yet feminine bridal look or even Kate Moss and you are planning a luxe bohemian fête. A garden setting blends perfectly with any bridal aesthetic, color scheme, time of day, and formality.
So in this edition of Bridal Style, we’ve rounded up a four different bridal outfits that we think would be perfect the bride who has her heart set on an outdoor garden wedding.
For the classic bride who wants to incorporate floral motifs into as many aspects of the wedding as possible, this romantic Jenny Yoo would be a flattering choice. Accentuate the delicate and textured beading by pairing the gown with a Shirley & Audrey organza Camellia flower fastened to a wavy side part for an understated elegance, Add a sophisticated white pump, like the Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps in white satin for a bridal look that will stand the test of time.
If you want to incorporate a fairytale spin on your garden wedding, we suggest pairing this Mira Zwillinger A-line floral gown and a matching off-the shoulder cape. After the ceremony, swap a sheer veil for a S&A silk flower clipped into beachy hair (we kind of love this bridal gown paired with our organza Garden Rose). Then add these elegant Mikimoto pearl earrings for some shine and to accentuate the trendy neckline of your wedding gown. Finally, finish the look with these Tabitha Simmons metallic block heels - perfect for walking across the garden landscape.
- If your wedding inspiration is a glamorous Art Deco affair (think Carey Mulligan’s fabulous outfits styled by Catherine Martin), then this Carolina Herrara column dress is absolute perfection. We love the floral embellished bodice with a back cut-out for a fresh and modern take. The lilac ribbon straps add an unexpected feminine flair that will be sure to pop in photos. A messy chignon would look divine with our new Pearl Nouveau hair clip tucked along the side or clipped in the back to fasten your veil. And for a final touch of glam, because excess is the key to getting your Daisy Buchanan vibes, pair with these glittery hued Christian Louboutin heels!
For the bride that doesn’t want to adhere to the traditional floral patterns we usually see at a garden wedding, we think a night time soirée with hints of cosmic vibes would fit the bill. Don a hip constellation themed wedding gown by Cucculelli Shaheen to really wow your guests. And since this particular gown is very intricate, we suggest styling the hair clean chignon with a center part. Accessorize with a S&A Stargazer hair clip neatly fastened next to the chignon. Include a show-stopping pair of Casadei heels to complete the starlet look!
