As the wedding dress is simple and effortless, you can adorn yourself with rustic jewelry to spice it up. A chunky beaded necklace, to an Arabian goddess themed anklet and head-chains. Choose gold, rose-gold coated jewelry as it keeps the look natural and earthly. Pearls, white gems and beads reflects the beauty of a glowing bride as well.

When choosing a bouquet, ensure the size and weight is effortless for you to carry. Go for warm toned feathers, light-weighted flowers such as Baby’s breath, Heather, Leptospermum, Limonium, Queen Anne’s Lace, Waxflower and etc. Easy to carry as well as an appealing beauty.
Give squad goals with your beauties! You can choose a carefree and casual style where your girls dress in their own style with a similar color palette and bohemian vibe with lace and hats. Or you can go for a sophisticated style with your girls wearing long shimmery warm-toned dresses. If not hit the runway and dress your girls in a similar dress and flower wreaths for an ultimate squad shot.
The Wedding Photoshoot
All you need is a huge bohemian carpet with ferry lights. Dance around with your love and let the photographer craft his magic. Create a woven white backdrop with dried flowers and leaves. Throw in some leather pillows and cushions. Tada, the backdrop is ready for your photoshoot. Snap around the beautiful decor you created for your wedding and capture them in pictures together with your beloved.
The Wedding Doorgift
Let your guests DIY their own gifts or maybe even grow them. Have a jar of sweet aromatic powder and a quirky quote to instruct. Scents have a great way of capturing memories so let your wedding be etched in their memory through the fragrance. A cactus plant sustains without water which could be a nice edition in their homes with your wedding memory. Create customized glass mugs with wooden covers with their names carved on it which will never fade for a long long time.
