Spring is finally here and soon gardens everywhere will be filled with colorful blooms. But, you don’t have to be a gardener to enjoy the beauty of spring flowers. For their Spring 2011 collections, bridal designers have embraced the season’s natural glory and created a number of stunning styles embellished with floral elements.

If you love the feeling of spring’s natural beauty, a dress infused with flower power could be the right one for you. From fun rosettes to elegant floral appliqués, this season’s gowns fit every wedding style. Whether you’re having a casual outdoor garden ceremony or a more formal affair, there is a look that will suit your desires.

If your bridal style is contemporary and minimalist, take inspiration from Casablanca Bridal Couture’s sleek-chic strapless gown that incorporates figure-flattering ruching with a cluster of fabric rosettes at the hip. For an ethereal bohemian feel, Claire Pettibone’s floaty empire waist confection features three-dimensional blooms that climb up the gown on elegant vines.

Fun floral styles aren’t just for brides. There are a number of looks out there for bridesmaids as well. To subtly complement a blooming bridal gown, one shouldered bridesmaid dresses with rosette details on the strap fit the bill. Designer Bari Jay offers such a look in a menagerie of delightful spring colors.
