In Praise of the Floral Print Wedding Dress

0

Last week, your social feeds were likely flooded with happy photos from actress/producer Sophia Bush and real estate investor Grant Hughes’ wedding in Oklahoma. The whole shebang had decidedly dreamy vibes, but the star attraction was Bush’s otherworldly floral-print wedding dress. Custom-made by designer Monique Lhuillier, a friend of the bride, the dress stood out for its vintage-inspired patterns and slender silhouette.

A little insight into the birth of Bush’s bespoke floral print wedding dress. Bush and Hughes got engaged in 2021 at Lake Como. In an interview with vogue, Bush revealed that she and Hughes spent most of the pandemic in Tulsa, Hughes’ hometown. The spirit of Tulsa inspired the flowers in Bush’s wedding dress. The puffy, blouson-sleeved ballgown was made from custom-created fabric by Lhuillier and featured a mixed pattern of flowers native to Oklahoma, as well as California and Italy, which honored the legacy of the couple’s families. The dress was an earthy color mix of peach Oklahoma tea roses, dark orange California poppies, warm green olives and buttercup buttercups. Lhuillier also created a custom veil to match the dress embroidered with poppies, roses and olive leaves.

We’ve already reported that the floral wedding dress is a major trend this season, but Bush’s dress has taken the look to another level. Now we call it: the floral print wedding dress is the mega micro-trend of 2022, as brides seek ever more unique dresses.
