Bohemian Wedding Musts

Bohemian style weddings are the newest bridal trend, and they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. A bohemian styled event is a perfect theme for the fashion-forward and trendy couple.

A boho wedding is going to incorporate a whimsical style with elements of rustic vibes and bold details. If you are wanting to go modern, some edgy detailing is great too! There’s also a distinction between West Coast Bohemian with a desert-inspired appeal and East Coast which can be more tropical inspired and modern.

Macrame, rattan, velvet, and greenery are just some of the bohemian trends. Farm tables with unique seating options and non-traditional tablescapes are essential for receptions. A lounge with bohemian style furniture and elements can create a laid back and stylish atmosphere. Calligraphy and well-placed signage can also bring in an artistic touch. If you are marrying outdoors, a unique tent such as a Sperry tent or TeePee tent can create a dramatic atmosphere, perfectly complemented with alternative décor and floral details.

Whatever your boho-style leans toward, there are some must-haves across the board, and we have all the items you could need for your Bohemian big day at our warehouse!

Trendy Tuesday | Foliage

Foliage is the new black… in the floral world, that is! Offering an interesting palette without distraction, the combination of lush blooms with leaves, vines, wispy grass, and seed pods creates an eye catching display…

Natural layers – I love this style for it’s organic and rustic look. It’s light on the flowers, but the lush greenery doesn’t disappoint! If you love this look, stay tuned later this week to see more from Nicholas + Olivia’s wedding {pictured below}.

Colorful leaves – One of my most favorite flowers {Magnolias} have leaves that are just a stunning as the flower itself, and they feature a rich emerald green on one side and a lovely amber on the other. These are great for adding a little extra pop of color to bouquets or centerpieces.

Flowy blooms – another style with an organic feel, incorporating flowy blooms + greenery creates a relaxed elegance perfect for a garden party event. This look works best when using two or three types of greenery.

5 Trends from Bridal Fashion Week

Bridal Fashion Week may have wrapped up earlier this month, but we’re still drooling over the gorgeous gowns that made their way down the runway. Check out our fashion forward coordinator’s {Miss Shadow} five favorite trends from this years shows!

Capes – No veil necessary here. Capes were all the rage on the runway for Spring. Whether you opt for a long bridal cape or a short caplet, you will add a modern element that is sure to make a statement. Best part, just like a veil you can remove it to reveal hidden details of your gown.{Left to right: Romona Kevenza, Naeem Khan and Monique Lhuillier}

V-Necklines – Although a deep v-neckline can seem a bit risqué, it actually can flatter the upper body and elongate a petite or short torso. Designers have mixed them up with everything from delicate lace to illusion-covered cuts to embellished fabrics to offer a soft feminine style. Pro tip: Keep that Hollywood Fashion tape handy. {Left to right: Anne Barge, Rivini and Lela Rose}

Floral – Floral has never been so prominent as they were in almost every collection for next Spring. Designers incorporated florals in several ways from floral lace to 3-D to embellished appliqués and we could be more excited to see not only floral but color as well. {Left to right: Marchesa, Jenny Packham and Ines Di Santo}

Sheer Illusion – Think sultry and sweet and this season, designers played with sheer elements ranging from embellished, modesty cutout panels to full-on see-through embroidered tops and dresses. If you want something more daring than sheer is a fabulous choice as it is revealing but still elegant. {Left to right: Ines Di Santo, J Mendel and Berta}

Off the Shoulder – Move over Strapless, shoulder details are back! Modest-meets-sexy. Designers did some incredible updates to the classic trend, including embroidered illusion necklines, floral detailing, and sleeves with peekaboo slits. {Left to right: Reem Acra, Francesca Miranda and Christos}

Desserts | Donut Den

This won top spot for my favorite desserts because um, hello? It’s a donut cake. Ever since I was little, I never was too much of a cake fan. Throughout the years, my birthday candles were stuck into donuts, ice cream, and even a Wendy’s burger once. Because of this, I love seeing other people get creative and think outside of the box for their wedding cake! Also, donuts are just delicious. -Katie
