We've had a lot of ladies pop into Boho Chic recently needing help accessorising or buying an outfit for a wedding.
Weddings are one of our favourite things at Boho. On an evening you can find us sat with a bottle of wine, tv remote in hand, acting as a panel of (friendly) judges in front of the TV screen agreeing with Randy Fenoli on Say Yes to the Dress. (If you haven't watched it, you definitely should - it's on TLC).
Watching SYTTD is great, but the real fun starts when we can be somebody's own bridal consultant! So, we're writing this post today to help you - a guest, a bridesmaid, the bride, mother of the bride - to find something that is a little bit different for the big day.
Our Mes Demoiselles Java Dress is perfect for an alternative bride who wants something that little bit different on their wedding day. Its made from 100% cotton, making it fantastic for hot destination weddings; the flowing silhouette creates a romantic feel, whilst the subtle pattern and cross back add bohemian edge.
Wear with delicate jewellery, and simple white sandals as pictured for the ultimate Boho Bride ensemble.
MOTHER OF THE BRIDE
We often have requests for a delicate, feminine coverup for the Mother of the Bride. These can be hard to find - often, you might be stuck between the choice of a basic pashmina or stiff tailored jacket, which isn't ideal if you are opting for a neutral, soft palette on your daughters special day. Our Mes Demoiselles Oz Lace Jacket is a perfect mix between a jacket and a light, easy to wear coverup. It comes in a soft buttermilk colour (as pictured), or striking black.
Wear over your outfit for added modesty during the ceremony and take it off when its time for a late night boogie on the dance floor with your new son in law! ;-)
Being a bridesmaid comes with some hefty responsibility - planning hen do's and making sure your bride is feeling her very best on the big day are all part of the title. So, when she needs a lipstick touchup, a bobby pin or a few tissues, you'll need to be right by her side. We have the perfect pouch for you to hold every essential for yourself and your bestie on the day. Take a look below, and click on the image to purchase:
Being a guest may seem easy, but choosing something appropriate and fitting for the venue or dress code can be difficult - covering up in a church, or keeping cool in the heat are all something you need to bear in mind. We've picked our top wedding wear picks; take a look below.
This Mes Demoiselles Silk Sunset Maxi Dress is a great option if you're going to a ceremony in the sunshine; the colours are in keeping with an exotic getaway and the lightweight fabric makes it great for travel and keeping cool. Pop a pashmina over your shoulders for extra coverage if needed. Click the image for more info.
If you already have a simple dress in mind, but you're attending a more glamorous do, adding statement jewellery is a great cost effective way to transform any outfit. Take a look at our Swarovski Crystal statement drop earrings - perfect when paired with a simple dress and a matching bag. Click on the image to buy.
Lastly, if you are wanting to add a pop of colour to an outfit you already own, try adding a silk scarf; the lightweight fabric is in keeping with the romantic event whilst adding modesty with the coverage it gives. This Amet & Ladoue Silk Scarf is a great choice for a summer wedding - pair it with a pair of bright shoes and you are all set!
