Jamali Garden has great decor for centerpieces. I have been looking for wooden boxes to hold flowers–so I could ideally solder my wedding monogram on to them–for a while and finally found exactly what I was looking for here.
In addition they have those antique patina votive and vases that I have been coveting at Anthropology. Martha Stewart featured them in the Winter 2010 edition of Weddings in which tables were style by Monique Lhuillier.
I just want to reach out and touch these glorious gowns. Then quickly put one on. I can only hope to be covered in white lace, jewels, and beautifully draped fabric on my wedding day. If you — like me — love romance, tiered dresses, out of the ordinary sheath, check out Temperly‘s website. Then go to Once Wed and see if they have any used bohemian wedding dresses or stop by their discreet shop on Broome Street in Soho, NYC.
One of the things I love to do on weekend mornings is grab a cup of coffee and head over to the local bookstore to read magazines. This morning my eyes landed on one that practically screamed from the shelf, “Read Me!” It is called Boho Magazine – A New American Spirit. Printed on recycled, textured paper it immediately appealed to my senses. The magazine highlights style, beauty, and green living. A gorgeous model wearing an emerald green shirt, cascading necklace, and wind tossed hair beautifully conveys the feeling of fall. One of the first pages that I turned to was “Are You a Boho?” which made me smile thinking of my earlier blog post. And in the “Boho Girl” section the categories include “world changers”, “earth angels”, “daydream believers”. These categories capture the femininity, courage, and independent free-spirit of my Boho Bride. As a quarterly magazine I will be eagerly awaiting Boho Mag’s next issue. Check it out for your self, Boho Girls!
What exactly makes a bohemian bride? I’d like to call us the new romantics.
People often describe a bohemian as:
We find inspiration from the natural world around us. We prefer soft, flowing fabrics to stiff taffeta. We appreciate the time it takes to craft homemade designs. We prefer the organic to the overworked. We thrive off of artistic expression and use our wedding day to honor our own unique personality.
Welcome to The Bohemian Bride, an online resource for the free-spirited bride.
This blog is about sharing wedding-related discoveries as I plan my own big day. I plan to document my own decision making process and post highlights from sites I find along the way. Please journey with me as my wedding evolves and my diy projects take shape!
