The Wedding Dress Made of Flowers

Floral wedding dress

Two of the biggest – and most exciting – problems which any bride-to-be faces are: what is my dress going to be? And what kind of wedding flowers do I want?

Norwich florist Ali Calver has taken an innovative approach to these two questions – combine them into one!

Her gorgeous creation is made up of traditional bridal flowers, such as white hydrangeas, tumbling avalanche roses, lisianthus, orchids, crysanthemums and baby’s breath.

“I wanted to make something really special to mark the EDP Wedding Show,” said Ali, 27.

“In the past I’ve decorated a vintage fire engine with flowers and I’ve made unusual bouquets for brides that include things like kumquats but I’ve never made anything quite like this.

“I’m very proud of it and as soon as it was made I wanted to try it on!”

We don’t know quite how comfy this stunning creation would be on your wedding night, though – those pretty, fragrant flowers are held together by being woven into a base made of chicken wire! This creation is just for show, although Ali says she'd "love to make one that a bride could actually wear."
