Who says the red carpet should only inspire your wedding dress? Premiere events—like the Oscars—are the perfect place to pick up some serious wedding inspiration too, especially for your flowers! Floral design is what makes the biggest statement on your big day (besides you, of course), and there are plenty of ways to incorporate celebrity style wins into your arrangements. After seeing this year's Academy Awards red carpet, event designer and planner Laura Remmert did just that: enlisting wedding flower pros and photographer Tory Williams to craft stunning arrangements that speak to her favorite celebrity looks from the biggest night in Hollywood. And the results, we must say, are award winning.

Viola Davis

Viola Davis was a vision in red on Oscar night, so Denise Fasanello Flowers took her bold, modern Armani style statement and channeled it into a uniform arrangement of bright red anemones. It's the perfect choice for a classic bride who gravitates towards daring colors.

Janelle Monáe

Janelle Monae's Elie Saab Oscar gown was every bit the jaw-dropping red carpet moment people dream of. From the texture to the metallic embellishments and eye-popping silhouettes, there's a whole lot of (good) drama going on here. Lilli from Mimosa Floral Design Studio incorporated these elements into a trendy, over-the-top arrangement that boasts roses, black ranunculus, orchids, gold-painted leaves, silver-painted scabiosa pods, a black velvet ribbon and so much more.

 

Naomie Harris

Naomie Harris' modern Calvin Klein number—with its peekaboo cutout and trailing cape—was all about clean, architectural lines. Blush Design's Jeeyun made sure her arrangement spoke the same style language, with white Phalaenopsis orchids and white and yellow calla lilies (to match Harris' pop of color on the shoe!). Super elegant, these architectural blooms exude the same modern vibes as Harris' look.

Hailee Steinfeld

Dreamy doesn't even begin to describe Hailee Steinfeld's Ralph and Russo gown with floral its motifs and billowing silhouette. To match the youthful and feminine spirit of Steinfeld's look, Denise Fasanello employed white sweet pea, pastel ranunculus, japanese ranunculus, hellebores, spirea, fire lily and pearlescent vases in pastel shades.

Emma Stone

Dripping in gold, Emma Stone opted for a gilded Givenchy gown to match her newly attained Oscar. But gold is having a big moment in the wedding-world too, and Lilli from Mimosa Floral Design Studio opted to include ranunculus, orchids, wild spray roses, gold roses, spirea in ivory and gold tones in her arrangement to speak to the trendy hue but also Stone's antique-meets-modern aesthetic.

Taraji P. Henson

Sometimes, simple is better and that can definitely be said for Taraji P. Henson's off-the-shoulder-meets-thigh-high-slit black velvet Alberta Ferretti gown. To emulate the trendy and sexy look, Blush Design's Jeeyun arranged an electric grouping of Japanese ranunculus and delphinium in a velvet-wrapped vase. Bold and edgy, this look suits a bride looking for something trendy and textured.
