Bold Impact | New Florals

Mar 5, 2020

When it comes to dressing for a spring or summer wedding, there are few prints better than floral ones. Perfect for the mother of the bride or groom who likes to have fun with fashion; they’re forever pretty, relevant, and they add colour and intrigue to even the simplest of silhouettes. See our favourite floral mother-of-the-bride and-groom dresses that you’ll love to wear:


Floral prints are a wonderful way to incorporate the colour palette of the wedding day and co-ordinate with the rest of the bridal party effortlessly. At John Charles we have pushed the floral print out of just dainty into the bold, maximalist and confident! Our exclusive floral prints sourced on luxurious fabrics from Europe’s premier mills mean you can even find one that works for an autumn or winter wedding.




Darker florals in heavy fabrics can be worn during the cold weather months with a chic jacket, while lighter florals in chiffon and similar breezy fabrics are perfect for the spring summer months. If you’re the mother of the bride or groom, you should certainly considering wearing a floral dress to the big day.




If you’re typically not someone who wears prints, look for a floral pattern that’s subtle and small like our Style 26802 or Style 26869. You won’t feel like you’re wearing a statement dress, but rather just adding an interesting texture detail to your mother-of-the-bride or -groom dress.




Another plus: When you’re wearing florals, you don’t to worry as much about jewellery or accessories as the the gorgeous fabric and print can generally speak for itself. Our line of hats and fascinators come in co-ordinated floral print to offer head to toe style. We also love a statement heel to bring out a colour in the floral print!
