Christian Siriano

Three-dimensional flower designs, called rosettes, are sprouting up everywhere in the latest few seasons of wedding dresses. Typically attached (often by hand) to the fabric of a bodice or skirt, rosettes can be singular or repeating in a pattern, creating a visual and textural detail that sets a dress apart.

We’ve selected a few of our favorite rosette-detailed dresses from our Wedding Suites to showcase here. Don’t miss the dainty petals on Roses by Reem Acra’s ‘Coral Bells,’ the dramatic textured skirt on Christian Siriano’s gown above or Vera Wang’s ‘Gabriella’ with a swirling skirt in the shape of big blooms. Fabulous florals, indeed!

From demure to dramatic, ruffled details are a charming way to give texture to a wedding dress. Ruffles are often made of silk organza, a sheer fabric that varies in thickness and has a crisp trim to help it hold its shape. Depending on the cut and amount of fabric, ruffles can appear in voluminous layers or as light, feathery accents.

We’ve handpicked our favorite crinkly confections here. Find your favorite from the selections below, or browse our in-store wedding gowns for more ideas!

In case the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit inspires your date to pop the question, we thought it an ideal time to announce the arrival of our Christian Siriano wedding dresses.

After his fourth-season win on Project Runway, we’ve been keeping an eye on this young designer and adore the simple elegance of his bridal gown designs—exclusively at Nordstrom online or in our Wedding Suites.

We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Siriano—along with a new lineup of designers available now for special order in the Wedding Suites, including Vera Wang, Jenny Yoo, Heidi Elnora (another Project Runway alumna), an exclusive NOUVELLE Amsale line, Matthew Christopher and more.
