Preston Bailey designs wedding gown of fresh flowers

A stunning white gown made of orchids, hydrangeas and roses graces the cover of the fall issue of Munaluchi Bride, a new wedding magazine directed at women of color.

The gown was designed by celebrity wedding designer Preston Bailey, who says the feat was a dream of his.

"I’ve always had this fantasy of creating the ultimate bridal gown of all blooms," he said.

The strapless gown was inspired by a Marchesa gown and was created using 250 stems of white phalaenopsis orchids, 400 white hydrangeas, 300 white tibet roses and 100 pink rosita vendela roses. It is form-fitting with a dramatic skirt and train that expands at mid-thigh. A wave of large orchid blooms sweeps across the chest and over the right shoulder.

The gown took the design team of three people 24 hours to make.

Although not practical for a real wedding, a floral arrangement with similar blossoms is. If it was the bright, blooming orchids that caught your eye, indulge in a potted white or pink orchid plant that can be ordered online. Arrangements of white flowers are also widely available online. Ivory roses and baby's breath make a romantic bouquet while a combination of white daisies with yellow roses can send a playful and cheery message.
