Gone are the days that the only thing you carry down the aisle on your wedding day is a bridal bouquet!


Fabulous flower crowns have been taking the wedding world by storm for the last few years and adorning yourself with florals on your big day doesn’t stop there! There’s a growing trend for a whole host of fresh flower wedding accessories and this week’s Friday Five brings you five fabulous alternative ways to wear fresh flowers on your special day.


Maybe you just won’t be able to resist a glorious flower crown or halo, or if they are too much of a statement piece for you, how about intertwining pretty petals into your plaits or bridal updo?


Why not try something really unique by accentuating your waist with a band of blooms, or have your maids carry a colourful corsage down the aisle instead of a bouquet, or if you’re to be a barefoot bride go for this season’s must-have the floral anklet?

Getting ready on your wedding morning is of course, a really special time. The excitement and the nerves are all calmed with a glass of fizz and having your best girls around you. It’s a really nice touch to have something special to sit around in while you’re getting ready and a lightweight robe is perfect if you’re getting married abroad, as the warm and heavy dressing gowns supplied by hotels will leave you melting in the sunshine.


There’s been a blossoming trend recently not only for floral bridesmaid dresses but also for floral print bridesmaid robes for the maids and the bride to wear on the wedding morning. So, if you’re looking for a single robe just for yourself to wear on your big day, or maybe you’re looking for floral print robes for all of your bridesmaids,  or possibly you are a bridesmaid and you think that a pretty petal robe could make a lovely gift for the bride-to-be, then here’s a roundup of the best floral print bridesmaid robes for the bride and her besties.
