I only recently, via instagram of course, discovered Israeli bridal gown designer, Inbal Dror, and I love love everything!  The images from the most recent look book, shot in the heart of New York City is the stuff my dreams are made of.  From the textured petals to the intricate beading, to the perfect blush color, these gowns are to die for.  What's more is they are stunningly styled with an everyday ponytail!  I just love it all so much that I had to share!

Five Ways to Wear Florals that are not a Crown.

I love a flower crown, but if you want to stand out in the wearable florals department, a regular old flower crown just won't do any more.  You need to get more creative.  

You can still wear flowers in your hair, but why not try them braided into your style? 

Maybe it's your bouquet you want to mix up?  How about trying a bridal corsage?  Or, keep the bouquet and don the corsage for the party. 

A floral anklet is the perfect accessory against sun-kissed legs at a beach wedding. 

Wouldn't a floral armband be a fabulous addition to an alternative bridal look? 

I am over the moon with the idea of stepping up your veil game and adding flowers throughout.
