Bohemian Weddings

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS

Being identified as “bohemian” has gone from being an outcast to uniquely different. From the colorful flowers to the distinctive ambiance, bohemian weddings are up and coming. The term bohemian in the past has been characterized by someone who is socially unconventional and especially interested in the arts. Over the years the term has turned into a funky and individualistic trait that is to be desired. The word bohemian, used in this sense, comes from the French “gypsy”.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – THE GROOM

A bohemian groom is known for being slightly hipster; unconventional, if you will. Although his appearance may not be as unique as the bride, his charm brings a whole new element to the term bohemian.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – CENTERPIECES

Bohemian’s love color. Color in everything from flowers to tablecloths to cakes. It brings happiness and uniqueness into anything and everything you want. Take the table setting below, for example. We see a green tablecloth with beautiful colorful flowers in the middle in a rustic setting. This will make for a wedding that will not easily be forgotten.

Colorful flowers, such as ranunculus, draw attention to the bride while offsetting her white dress, making her stand out and be memorable.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – FLOWER GIRLS

Little girls can be bohemian too! This lovely flower girl is rocking the messy hair and fashionable forehead headband, making her stand out and adding an extra charm to an already unique wedding.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – CAKES

Bohemian’s are known for being one with nature. Being unconventional and rustic makes the term bohemian what it is today. That being said, earthy cake themes are the perfect addition to your bohemian wedding. The cake above takes nature and turns it into something elegant and, again, memorable.

Gatsby Wedding

GATSBY WEDDINGS

Are you Gatsby’d out yet??? We certainly aren’t! This trend took off very quickly in the wedding industry! Brides just cannot get enough of that Gatsby! Who could? Gatsby weddings are classy, high-end & so visually appealing! The black & gold accent colors add instant glamour to these weddings.

Did you know that the word gatsby refers to a type of South African style sandwich? However, the word gatsby is also a synonym for cool, swanky, & impressive – exactly how it is perceived in the movie, The Great Gatsby…the book about the “unattainable dream” is completely attainable with the expertise of First Class Weddings. We encourage you to “Live your Dream”…

Black & gold themed cakes are a major hit in the Gatsby world! These beautiful cakes are elegant and are just too pretty to cut into!

Crystal chandeliers hanging high above the ceiling add a stunning vintage look and make the lighting in the room romantic & intimate! Crystals, gems & pearls make for a lovely old fashioned feel and make you, as a bride, look glamourous!

GATSBY BRIDE

Are you a roaring 20s bride? Bold black eyeliner & light eyeshadows make bride’s eyes pop! Don’t forget some pearls & gold earrings to hang below that gorgeous roller-style hair!

We LOVE these gorgeous earrings! These cascading tear drop earrings are a bold statement and would look lovely underneath wavy hair!

GATSBY GROOM

As depicted in the book & movies, Mr. Gatsby is a rich man who happened to come into a lot of money during his life. He lives a glamourous lifestyle & knows how to throw a party. This Gatsby groom is rockin’ his white tuxedo while looking sharp & is ready to be the life of the party.

All that glitters can be gold! Sparkling confetti falling from the high ceilings screams “Gatsby!”. These luxurious wedding details are extravagant & make for a stunning wedding. Black & gold were considered to be popular colors in the 20s when throwing parties. These colors once signified your status & class.

Gold silverware & gold rimmed plates are simple yet high-end. The fold of the napkin resembles that of a bow tie which all of the gentlemen wore to the parties that Mr. Gatsby threw in his mansion…

If you really want to make a grand exit, think about your transportation! In the 20′s the car was a newer invention that was coming in cool shapes & sizes. Back then cars were for the wealthy who were amongst the few who could afford to own them… & if you were seen driving off in one of these babys you would be making a memorable exit!

Ombré Wedding

Red to white ombre wedding cake

 Ombré Wedding

Ombré is a French term, it means the shading and transition of color from light to dark, from one shade to another.  Traditionally this term referred to fabric and ombré has definitely made it’s mark in the fashion world, however recently this style has blown up! We are seeing ombré designs on everything from hair to nails and of course, all things weddings!  Wedding cakes, invitations, backdrops and flowers, ombré weddings are one wedding trend that is sure to stick around!

Ombre flower centerpiece

 Ombré Wedding Centerpiece

Ombré floral centerpieces can make your reception oh-so-glamorous!  An Ombré Wedding adds a decorative element that works with every color palette, and flowers are a great way to incorporate ombré decor into your wedding ceremony and reception. When creating an ombré flower centerpiece, we recommend choosing different flowers for each color (as seen above).  The different textures mixed with busts of color will create one gorgeous centerpiece!

Ombré Wedding Isle Runner

Ombré was originally associated with fabric, so why not continue your ombré wedding theme into your isleway.  We love a look that is hand crafted and matches your chairs, backdrops, reception table cloths, napkins, centerpieces and more…

 Ombre Wedding Backdrop

Hanging paper art makes for a fabulous backdrop and this ombré wedding backdrop makes this desert table so much sweeter! Hang garlands color by color, moving from one shade to the next to create fun and unique ceremony backdrop, desert table or photo booth areas. You can also  hang above reception tables to create amazing hanging decor!

Ombré Wedding Dress

It’s a bride’s day, so why not express you personal style with a fun and fabulous ombré gown…or have your bridesmaids rock the style. Brides may choose a white dress with colored tool that just peeks out the bottom or make a bold statement with a gown that transitions into a burst of color!

Halloween Wedding

Halloween, the time of year where children and adults alike dress in costumes, visit haunted houses and carve Jack O’Lanterns.  While Halloween is most often associated with ghosts and goblins, cobwebs and candy, not everyone is saying Trick or Treat on October 31…for many happy couples, this is a day to say I DO!

Elegant Halloween ceremony

With a black, white and orange color palette, this outdoor ceremony is Halloween chic.  A variety of beautiful orange and white blooms pop against sophisticated black flower pots and bold, fabric accented acrylic stands.

Halloween Wedding – Pumpkin Centerpieces

Nothing says Halloween like pumpkins.  Carved, painted, big or small pumpkins are a great addition to an October wedding!  Use as centerpieces,  line the ceremony aisle way or pile high for a decorative photo booth backdrop.  Small pumpkins are perfect for favors and place cards alike.  Attach tags with your guests names or display at each place setting for fun festive Halloween wedding decor.

Place a fruit tree (cumquat trees are the perfect size) on a table with paper tags and pens.  Guests can write their wishes for the bride and groom and hang them on the tree branches.

Wooden Box Centerpiece

When it comes to your receptions thinking outside of the box may actually mean choosing a box centerpiece for your reception tables. For big square tables you really do need to have an over-sized centerpiece to make a statement – without it being so tall that you can’t see the person sitting across the table from you. The above box centerpiece was truly amazing in real life, it was whether resistant and simply worked fabulously for a tropical outdoor event. A custom box centerpiece can be designed to suit your wedding colors/theme. First Class Weddings preferred vendor on this one is Mandy Grace from Bella Grace Flowers. Great job Mandy!
