Finding Your Bridal Style

Congratulations… you said yes - And now the fun begins! For those of you who know your bridal style, this really is the fun part… bringing your lifelong vision to life. For others, wedding planning can be an overwhelming array of styles and options and not knowing where on earth to start.

So, we’re here with this post, to help you try and identify your bridal style and help focus your mind for the rest of your wedding planning journey.

1. Boho Bride

You may have heard the term a million times but what actually is a boho bride? Think natural, unstructured, inspired by nature.

​A vintage bride might choose an alternative, cool wedding venue such as an old cinema or theatre for a ceremony venue with a difference. The wedding reception could include vintage china or take the format of a cute afternoon tea as opposed to a formal three course wedding breakfast.

4. Modern Bride

For those of you who want to put a real modern stamp on your wedding, think late afternoon city centre ceremony followed by dinner and drinks in a private dining area of a chic city restaurant. When it comes to modern brides, there aren’t really any hard and fast rules when it comes to your wedding dress. You could go for a floral print dress or a coloured dress for something a little different, or perhaps you might choose a sexy, evening style wedding gown to go with your chic city theme.
