Wedding or Music Festival? by Jenny Chang

Is your style totally laid back and casual? Do you consider yourself boho-chic? Nomadic, free-spirited and non-conformist – hippie meets gypsy? You can use music festival trends as wedding inspiration! Imagine whimsical details, flowing dresses, and wild flowers.

 

Venue.

We love open fields, large estates, or even the beach. Think open air and plenty of space for this non-traditional ceremony and wedding style. Nature is an important part of your music festival inspired celebration. Your venue should help your guests feel as relaxed and laid back as you are!

 

Décor.

This is where vintage meets rustic. Your colors should be earthy to complement your venue, but at the same time bright and festive to evoke a Woodstock vibe. Wheat. Gold and jewel-toned lanterns. Dream catchers. Neutral lace. Remember that being boho is all about being relaxed and not putting too much effort into the details. Don’t doubt what you like and what you feel matches your style. Check out thrift and antique stores for vintage pieces.

 

Flowers.

Floral design, like the rest of your décor will be effortless. Try mixing vibrant colors with rich tones. Sunflowers with black magic roses. Throw in some feather into the centerpieces and the bouquet to change up the texture. Also mix and match flowers and centerpieces to fuel your non-conformity.

 

Reception.

The reception style, like your décor should harmonize with your venue. If you have a backyard setting, go for a picnic-style dinner. In an open field, try teepees as cocktail hour lounge areas. At a large state, have long community tables without seat assignments. And don’t forget about the music (I mean how could you? Your inspiration is a music festival)! Find someone to play acoustic guitar, hire a life bluegrass band, or have a bunch of your friends bring their instruments and play around a fire pit.

 

Fashion.

The headlining act: the Bride and Groom’s looks will be relaxed and effortless. Lace dresses. Chunky jewelry. Top hats. Feathers. The boho-chic Bride’s dress will be stunning regardless of what the dress style  -- off the shoulder, bell sleeve, layers on the bottom. Think Stevie Nicks meets Lana Del Rey. Don’t be afraid to put some flowers in your hair! The Groom will find inspiration from Johnny Depp, Jimi Hendrix, or Tom Petty. We think music festival groom is rock n’ roll meets bohemian. 

A Wedding At Tiffany's by Jenny Chang

There has never been a more iconic & synonymous company with Weddings & Proposals as "Tiffany & Co."

During that special evening, when you feel the anticipation rising & he slowly falls to one knee every woman wanted to see BLUE! (Tiffany Blue to be specific!) It may very well be every woman's dream to at some point in their life receive a Tiffany Blue box with a little something special for them inside. Whether that is an engagement ring or a personalized necklace, Tiffany's is Tiffany's! Although, when we hear Brides who say they've always envisioned a Tiffany & Co. wedding we quickly realize it may not be as simple as re-imagining an iconic movie!

When you think of Tiffany & Co., you can't help but imagine the great Audrey Hepburn! When Brides come to us with the inspiration of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" what they are really saying is, "I'm inspired by Audrey Hepburn". Who wouldn't be inspired by the fashionista of Hollywood's Golden Age? Recently, Dove Chocolate digitally re-created the late actress in a commercial that received major media coverage. If this does not show how current Hepburn's influence has remained in modern fashion, then I don't know what does. As a major Hollywood actress, Hepburn pushed a lot of Hollywood's fashion barriers, many which would seem minor in current trends, but her sass and beauty created the icon we know and love today!

Beyond her glamor & brilliant stage presence, Hepburn's wedding to Mel Ferrer showcases how seamlessly her inspiration translates into modern wedding design! We completely love and are as obsessed with the idea of a Hepburn inspired wedding as you are.

Is that a flower crown we see? Of course the fashionista was rocking the modern bridal floral crown circa 1954.

We found the P E R F E C T Audrey Hepburn inspired Bride & Groom couple & decided to create an inspired wedding board for those who can't stop seeing Tiffany Blue! (After this, we can't either!) Whether you decide to go with the Tiffany's theme (which our inspiration lends itself to) Or you decide to channel your inner Hepburn, we fully support you!

Our RNE PRO TIP: for channeling your inner Hepburn! Look thorough "Audrey Hepburn" on Pinterest. Not only in her younger years, but the woman slayed it throughout her entire career! Her sense of style & glamor is the best inspiration we can find!

Have fun being inspired & hope you start pinning these as much as we have!
