The Elegant Trend of Bows in Weddings


In recent years, bows have gracefully made their way into the forefront of wedding aesthetics. This timeless and versatile accessory is being reimagined in innovative and enchanting ways, adding a touch of elegance and charm to various aspects of the wedding day. Here’s how bows (aka our fav!!) are making a statement in modern weddings today!

1. Bridal Fashion

First, is Bridal gowns!!! From large, dramatic bows that serve as the focal point on the back of a dress to delicate, subtle bows accentuating waistlines and shoulders, this trend brings a sophisticated and fun flair to bridal attire that will never go out of style! Designers are incorporating bows in various fabrics and styles, ensuring there’s a perfect piece for every bride.

2. Bridesmaid Dresses

Bridesmaid dresses adorned with bows provide a cohesive and stylish look. Coordinated bows on the dresses can create a unified theme, while individual styles allow each bridesmaid to showcase their personality! These bows can be placed at the back, front, or even on the sleeves of the dresses just like a wedding dress, adding a playful yet elegant touch.

3. Accessories

Bows as accessories are an understated yet bold way to enhance your bridal look! From delicate ribbon bows intertwined with braids to bold statement bows atop sleek buns or adding grace through the details of your bridal shoe, they offer a versatile option for both brides and bridesmaids alike. These accessories can be matched to the wedding colors, creating a harmonious look throughout the bridal party.

4. Bouquets and Boutonnieres

Incorporating bows into bouquets and boutonnieres adds a refined new twist on floral arrangements. Silk or satin ribbons tied into bows around the stems of bouquets bring a polished and romantic feel (and who doesn’t love romance!) Similarly, groomsmen can sport boutonnieres with small bows, coordinating with the bridesmaids’ dresses to carry on the theme.

5. Decor and Invitations

Bows are also making their mark in wedding décor and stationery as well. Chair sashes and table settings, invitations, and embellishments! Decorative bows no matter how big or small can fit seamlessly into any wedding style.

6. Cake Decorations

Wedding cakes adorned with fondant or ribbon bows are the favored trend. These edible decorations can be customized to match the wedding colors and theme, or just used to add style and a sweet touch to the celebration!


The trend of bows in weddings is a gorgeous fusion of traditional and contemporary design. Their refined and attractive look allow them to be incorporated into various aspects of the wedding without being overpowering! Making them a beloved choice for brides and grooms looking to add a special touch to their big day. Through fashion, décor, or accessories, bows are a trend that is here to stay…. definitely for us!
