Mason jars have had their moment, but 2016 brides who want to keep their wedding from turning into a burlap-wrapped cliche are using unexpected elements to make their big day both earthy and elegant. Brides are now opting for a nature-inspired, woodsy wedding palate instead of the overdone faux-rustic theme.
If you want a 2016 boho wedding that will "wow" your guests, incorporate the following ideas:
- Frocks -
Brides who want to be beautiful and bohemian in 2016 are opting for sheer lace details. Many designers are catering to brides who want an easy, breezy look by designing dresses with champagne-colored linings, sheer details, or unexpected pops of lace.
Willowby by Watters is one of these brands.
- Adornment -
In the past, boho brides have shied away from veils, seeing them as too traditional for their laid-back affair. We're happy to announce that in 2016, veils are making a comeback in a big way. Lace-trimmed veils paired with flower crowns are an unexpected pairing that provides any bride with laid-back elegance that stays right on trend.
- Flora -
A 2016 bohemian wedding gets back to nature - taking the elegant colors and textures of the wilderness and bringing them (untouched) to center stage. Succulents have been replaced by bouquets and centerpieces that take greenery to the next level. For brides who still want flowers to take center stage, wild flowers are the way to go.
- Confection -
Say good bye to bite-sized goodies. Cupcakes were an adorable alternative to a traditional wedding cake, but any 2016 boho bride who wants to stay on trend will re-embrace the cake...but with a new twist of course. If you want your confection to be absolute perfection, you're going to have to strip down. "Naked Cakes" are the newest trend in wedding pastry,
and they fit into any bohemian theme effortlessly.
- Garnish -
2016's take on boho style decidedly does not include burlap. Replace this element with a rustic barn-board table runner or rustic flower garland. Instead of mason jars, brides who want to stand out are opting for brown glass bottles or vintage milk-glass. The best part is that all of these items are as inexpensive as they are unexpected.
