The Rosette Moment: Bridal and Beyond
In tandem with the launch of its Wedding Registry experience, Etsy released its 2023 wedding trends.
Of those highlighted trends are rosettes – a delicate and whimsical 3D floral detail that adds a romantic touch to any wedding dress. Etsy has reported a surge in searches for floral wedding dresses, which have increased by 78%. Additionally, searches for 3D flower veils and 3D flower dresses have risen by 35% and 32%, respectively.
The flower choker trend of this year has also seen a significant increase in searches, with a rise of 159%. Notably, the flower choker can be worn by brides well beyond their wedding day.

The popularity of dreamy rosettes can be attributed to their versatility. They can be incorporated into various dress styles and accessories, from the most modern to the most traditional. They can add a touch of modesty and bohemian flair to a sheer lace or crochet dress or a romantic touch to a structured satin or taffeta gown or even a sheer but edgy minidress.
Following that sentiment, the rosette trend has gone beyond bridal fashion and has recently made their mark in prominent events like the Met Gala, widely regarded as fashion’s grandest night. Wedding day and beyond From the big day and various wedding events, to date night, pool parties and summer vacation, dreamy rosettes are a great way to weave in a romantic, ethereal aesthetic.

Sofia was noted to wear a white single-shoulder top embellished with rosette details from Magda Butrym and wide-leg pants from Christopher Esber and paired the outfit with a Loro Piana pouch and hot pink Oscar de la Renta floral earrings to complete the look. The inclusion of rosettes in one of her first honeymoon looks follows the 300% CHANEL search spike Sofia created during her wedding week when she served up various quiet luxury looks mainly featuring CHANEL.
