There’s nothing quite like a bow to represent the finishing touch on something, making it the perfect way to accessorize the day where you proclaim you have found the love of your life. Bows are feminine without being flowery – although they pair great with florals as well. Some brides may feel the look is too juvenile, but depending on the material used, they can be seen as romantic, chic, and fashion-forward. A structured bow on a bridal gown is a vastly different style than a simple ribbon or tulle bow tying on a beaded belt.

Since bow ties seem a touch too obvious, we’ve gathered 10 additional ways to feature bows in your wedding details. However, that’s certainly not the limit to incorporating this trend into your aesthetic. If you can dream it, you can put a bow on it!
