Alternative Bridal Jackets and Cover-Ups Fri, 22 Jul 2011 05:00:00 +0000

I really feel the cold and with skin so pale I’m already quite blue, it’s pretty clear a bridal jacket, coat, cardie is needed to keep me warm at our wedding reception. Over the last year I’ve oogled many a Bride wearing a funky coat or stole and with a lack of luck on Ebay (yes, there’s been a fair few bidding wars this week) I have turned my attention toward what the high street has to offer. Here’s what I found…

Top L-R: Oyster Crepe Unstructured Jacket from Topshop; Cream Beaded Jacket from Miss Selfridge; Leather Sequin Jacket from Warehouse; Embellished Jacket, Warehouse.

Happy weekend! With Love, Boho Bride xx

Regal Wedding Gowns, Fit for a Princess Bride! Wed, 04 May 2011 05:00:57 +0000

Following the royal wedding, I’m sure we’ll now be seeing a sudden surge in the style of wedding gown our now Duchess of Cambridge wore. Designed by Sarah Burton, Creative Director of House of McQueen, Princess Catherine’s dress was a beautiful homage to the fairytale wedding gowns of the 50′s, most notebly Grace Kelly’s (Princess Grace of Monaco) and the Queen’s.

With that in mind, I’ve put together a board featuring some of my favourite designers all of whom create beautiful 50′s style wedding gowns with lace, sleeves, nipped in waists and flattering structure – think modest, understated and ladylike…

Enjoy! With Love, Boho Bride xx

Folk Inspired Treats – Wedding Decor Fri, 22 Oct 2010 10:45:42 +0000

I’ve more folky fun for you today, so I’m officially naming this ’folk week’…shame it took me till Friday to think of the concept!

Beetroot is where I found this latest supply of loveliness. It’s a Polish store, run by two Scottish expats, Louise and Helen who’s aim is to celebrate “contemporary Polish design outside of Poland”…and I’m really pleased they have!

The items I’ve featured (above) are really gorgeous homewares, that would translate beautifully into quirky wedding decor…just imagine the impactful Love Sticker placed on a wall behind the top table at your wedding reception, or hang the Wreath Project Lamp from wooden beams for a fete feel. The Folk cushions would look oh-so kitch in the ‘chill-out’ area of a Tipi!

Balloons and bunting make pretty and classic wedding displays, but thinking outside the box can reward you with a wedding scheme that’s really unique and eye-catching. It’s a similar concept to decorating your home – if you fill it with items you love – it will look lovely!
