BOA STYLE - MOSS ELEMENTS

21 April 2016

Be inspired by the outdoors and all that nature has to offer – moss is a wonderfully versatile décor element to utilise throughout your wedding for a lush, woodland feel. Faux or the real deal, your guests will feel as though they are walking amidst a beautiful rainforest. Moss looks beautiful suspended on a lampshade or even birdcages for a visual display that that fuses natural and industrial elements together. Peruse over all the beautiful ways you can incorporate this natural element into your arrangements…

An artful set of initials or even a sentimental message of love make for a personal focal point in your décor – simply cover wooden letters with moss and add clusters of anemones, helleboruses, and jasmine leaves for a sweet flourish. If you want something a little more subtle, moss covered table numbers are the way to go. They look beautiful sanding on their own or covered in a bell jar or terrarium for added oomph.

BOA STYLE - METAL

31 March 2016

One of our choice looks this season is a modern industrial style. Modern industrial is all about combining rich textures to evoke a welcoming urban vibe, which brings us to one of our favourite elements – metal. Add a few metal accents to achieve the richly layered textures that define a modern style. Consider a bar cart with wrought iron pipe legs, or brushed brass candlesticks in your table décor. These accents of metallic texture will add a rich quality to the overall look. Take a look at all the fabulous ways you can include metal into your special day….

BOA EDIT - THE LONG + ROUND OF IT

20 October 2015

It’s the day young girls spend their childhood planning. But like all young girls, we didn’t realise the hard – but fun + totally worth it– work that actually went into planning every detail of a wedding. Which brings me to my point – take a seat + let's talk wedding reception set-up, or more specifically - how do you choose between using long or round tables?! The answer? Well you’re a bride, decisions don’t come easy, but hopefully we can make it a little easier for you.

The vibe of your wedding reception greatly depends on how the evening is organised + one of the easiest ways to make your party feel welcoming + warm is with your wedding tables. Don’t doubt its ability to transform your venue of choice ladies – whether you’re having an intimate setting or a lavish affair, your set-up + styling plays a major role.

The three magic words when it comes to influencing your table design decision; say it with me ladies - venue size, centrepiece + interaction! Consider the sizing of the venue + which table style would allow you to efficiently utilise the space, along with what centrepiece design you are crushing over.

ROUND

This one is the classic choice, if you are trying to achieve that timeless feel then this is definitely the way to go. As long as your centrepieces are cooperating, your guests can easily mingle with one another across the table, along with those seated to their left + right. Each round table takes a single centrepiece + round table cloths are easily accessible, coming in many sizes + colours – hello money saver!!

For a less traditional look, try mixing small + large sized tables for an eclectic feel + this way you can accommodate for the different sized groups on your guest list - it’s a win-win for everyone. One downside however, in a smaller space it is much harder to fit a large number of round tables as they don’t neatly fit against straight-edged walls + corners. So if you are short on space, this may not be the option for you + beau.

LONG

The long rectangle table is your more modern choice + a formal dining dream which has gained popularity amongst brides + grooms. Mingling opportunities for your guests are about the same as those on a round table – although those at either end of the table might have to shout to engage with one another. Creating a regally intimate atmosphere, the straightedges modernize these tables + work really well in both larger + smaller spaces.

We recommend choosing a few smaller, but striking centrepieces [taper candles, foliage runners] placed in a row down the centre of the table or why not try a hanging centrepiece filled with luscious foliage + florals. This style however may be a little annoying for those guests who are seated towards the middle of the table. Why? Could you imagine walking around the whole table just to use the bathroom or boogie it down on the dance floor. If a guest cancels last minute or is a no show, then the seating chart gets little thrown off and can be noticed as an empty seat.

BOA TIP: If you honestly cannot decide over both of these gorgeous options, why not combine both? We are all for bending the rules of tradition, who says you need just one table type – not us! There’s room for all of them at your table [pun intended].

Transport your friends and family on a magical adventure down the rabbit hole, to a world of unworldly creations, eccentric characters and unusual fairytale dreams. We love this quirky engagement party idea full of colour and wonder, a perfect enchanted theme to kick-start your journey towards your wedding day. After all, marriage is a little like a ride down a rabbit hole; a new exciting adventure into the unknown that promises fun, spontaneity and transformation.

Incorporate alarm clocks, pocket watches, vintage keys and frames, playing cards, bunnies, top hats, mis-matched crockery and a little of the unexpected into your décor plans. Cute little “drink me” or “eat me” tags for the edibles on display and garden games such as croquet are a fun little touch to your engagement party bonanza.

BEACH ENGAGEMENT PARTY

2 December 2014

Whether you're a surfer, water baby or just a beach babe at heart, a beach located engagement party is such a beautiful idea. There is nothing like the beach at dusk, as the sun is setting while the fairy lights are glistening. The smell of a balmy night, with champagne and oysters... A beach wedding can be a modern and glamorous affair or a bohemian and whimsical one.

Lanterns and candles create the perfect ambiance and cushions and throws offer a stylish and chic decor. We think these beach engagement parties are absolutely stunning. Guests relax in romantic surroundings, with the sound of waves lapping the shore. If the weather turns a little cooler, provide a bonfire for guests to warm their toes... but don't forget marshmallows! And of course, there has got to be seafood. We love the idea of having a chef on hand to cater for guests... such a trendy eating style. The beach offers a creative location in which to celebrate amongst friends, kick off those shoes and grab a Corona, it's time to enjoy your new romantic commitment. 



We are in love with these beautiful dresses... Opt for an airy, beachy and romantic number, perhaps in white, but by no means compulsory! These two feminine but sexy numbers elude to a Grecian Goddess... just flawless!

DISPOSABLE CAMERAS - WEDDING 101

1 December 2014

Provide your guests with hours of entertainment by supplying disposable cameras! Not only will guests interact with one other, you will also be left with some incredible and priceless snaps! Your photographer is there to capture the day in a professional light but imagine your nephew with cake on his face or your grandma's accidental selfie as she tries to figure out how it works and your bridesmaid caught in the bathroom mirror as she touches up that ruby red lippy... We can just picture it, now that would make for a fun photo album to flick through.




To really get your guests involved provide an 'I SPY' list... guests need to take pics of certain things. It's a good time to think of snaps you'd love to have as keepsakes and include these on the list.




Either have a basket full of disposable cameras as your guests enter the wedding ceremony, place them on their chair or place setting or alternatively have them arranged on high-bars and tables around the venue.

FLORAL FRIDAY - CAMELLIA

28 November 2014

The Camellia is one of the most pristine of all blooms. Its symmetry and immaculate detail screams wedding flower. The detailed flower looks best on its own or amidst an arrangement of the same variety. Camellia is like the popular girl in school, she's wants all the attention and she knows how to get it. Generally flawless, she's hard to contend with and overpowers most other blooms. Predominantly available in pinks, the Camellia is perfect for your summer wedding.

BUFFET STYLE WEDDING CEREMONY

26 November 2014

Food, fashion and family... the most important things, no? The food element of a wedding is often one of the biggest... it takes up a large part of the day and often the budget. Sit down style meals are the traditional ceremony procedure but we are all about innovation here at BOA! We love the idea of a buffet style meal. It's communal, fun and in fashion! Cuisine can vary and range - take your guests on a trip across the globe, Indian on one side of the room and Italian on the other. Yum!


This outdoor wedding buffet is so cool! Imagine having chefs prepare meals in front of your eyes... wedding wishlist 101.



Get creative with your presentation. Use household items like dressing tables, crates, palettes and/or outdoor furniture. Keep your wedding scheme in mind when planning, and ensure your buffet fits in with your wedding decor.

The tulip – pretty as a petal. These flowers blossom in spring time and come on an array of colours from the most vibrant yellow and pink to pale blues and corals.

Dusty miller adds a unique textural aspect to bouquets and centerpieces, while still sitting cohesively within the palette. Optionally you can deviate, using light blues and dark greys to still remain on trend.

Have some fun with bright vibrant colours or use pastel tones for a more elegant affair.

LAVENDER LOVE

12 March 2013

Lavender is so pretty and feminine with a lovely effortless quality about it, a few stems tied together with ribbon or string amongst very relaxed styling looks so naturally beautiful. The colour is sweet and soft, perfect for a bright and fresh wedding of classic and rustic elements. Reflect the darling simplicity of the flower in other aspects; fresh whites and recycled bits and bobs highlight the purple hue in all its unfussy glory.

lavender wedding - lavender placecard - brides of adelaide magazinelavender menu - lavender wedding - brides of adelaide magazinelavender wedding cake - brides of adelaide magazine lavender wedding - brides of adelaide magazine

Lavender is known not only for being ornamentally beautiful, but also for its soothing effects. A blanket of calming aroma with sweet overtones will relax everyone involved on your wedding day and keep spirits high. Fill empty mason jars with freshly picked bunches of lavender and use mis-matched ribbons to tie a sprinkling of lavender across your white styling.

Lavender toss is an environmentally friendly alternative to confetti and the soft purples have a fairy-tale quality in photographs. Wheat colours and lace work seamlessly with the organic style of the lavender plant and keep the men’s suits light and fresh, finishing with a simple lavender boutonniere.

HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT

21 February 2013

Daisies are pretty and sweet blooms with a wonderfully effortless quality about them. One can’t help but imagine a barefoot bride running carefree through a field, chasing her groom with a chain of daisies delicately weaved in her hair. In terms of wedding décor, daises are bright, happy and one of the most versatile flowers due to their simple nature.

We love daisies combined with rustic elements; placed in jars and teacups and various other mismatched vintage items. The idea of this styling is not to be perfect, but to create a cheerful and homely feel with pre-loved fabrics, heirlooms and a natural colour palette.

PINK ROMANCE

14 February 2013

Join us on a love affair with soft pinks and crisp whites, a romantic and fresh colour palette reminiscent of a garden party hosted by the graceful Marie Antoinette. Pretty and soft, this styling is perfect for an afternoon occasion where women in floaty frocks sip on chilled champagne, arm in arm with their loved ones beneath blue skies and hanging pink lanterns.

Use white as your foundation colour and add subtle pink accents for feminine styling hues that work harmoniously to complement each other. Colour blocking in shades of white will make an elegant statement, white walls, furniture, linen and crockery make a beautiful canvas. A wonderful way to add colour is with the use of fresh flora; peonies, David Austin roses, blossoms and hydrangeas all bloom in exquisite varieties of pinks. Food is a delicious way to incorporate a splash of colour with yummy pink sweets and meringues followed by refreshing pink lemonade and champagne.

Incorporating the gentle beauty of the day into your bridal wear is a simple way to unite consistency across your styling. We think every woman looks charming in pink, whether you are dancing in a pair of pastel heels with ruffles or sporting dewy cheeks from a soft pink blush.

GET HITCHED IN THE HILLS

11 February 2013

A wedding ceremony nestled in the rolling Adelaide Hills offers stunning scenery as natural backdrop to any wedding celebration. Escape to the hills where you and your guests can relax, breathe in the fresh air and marvel at the undulating hills, beautiful landscaped gardens and vineyards where memories of a lifetime are made. Only 15 minutes from the CBD, the choice of country scenery is limitless. Green is the new black, it’s trendy, there’s no doubt about that - and for the eco fashionista, you can’t go past this stylish look for your wedding nuptials...

A winery is a charming, romantic setting for an elegant country wedding and what better location to host your wedding reception than in the superb surrounds of a South Australian vineyard? The sky is the limit and the options amazing! Celebrate the sweet fruit of the vine with a vineyard themed wedding celebration.

When hosting a wedding at a vineyard, you won’t have to look very far for inspiration for your wedding theme and with industrial decor styling undergoing quite a renaissance, for a twist on your vineyard wedding, decorate your reception in ‘industrial eco chic’ style. Think sleek stainless steel tables and benches on an airy deck dressed with pretty ‘country-styled’ flower arrangements infused with grapes and accented with all the beautiful little things that nature has to offer such as bird’s nests, birds and lush mosses. Private, romantic, perfect...

BOHEMIAN NIGHTS

6 February 2013

Bohemian weddings encompass a mis-matched array of boho beauty in rich colours and interesting textures. We adore the carefree and laidback style of this vibrant wedding theme and how couples manage to creatively infuse their love into every little aspect of the styling. There are no rules when it comes to a bohemian wedding; pre-loved and new pieces come together to create a homely and natural space.

Earthy colours set the base for boho styling, allowing a natural canvas to build and build upon with a combination of bright colours and patterns. Vintage fabrics are charming and can be used as table runners, place mats, flags or any other kind of unique decoration. Coloured bottles and glass will brighten your table settings and gold goes perfectly with the indian-esque bohemian theme.

The relaxed nature of a bohemian wedding means you can have fun with your bouquet and wedding choices; a variety of colours and types can be mixed together, from bridal poppies to succulents. For creative couples who enjoy the unconventional, the boho wedding is the perfect way to express your eccentricities with family and friends on a day to remember.

SIMPLY WHITE

1 February 2013

Plato once said that beauty of style, harmony, grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity. Ultimately, less is more. Sometimes, however, it takes a lot of effort to look like you haven’t put in any effort at all. Which is why we have put together our favourite ‘less is more’ styling concepts – ideas in neutrals that are elegant, not boring.

White is crisp, timeless and looks fabulous when teamed with earthy woods, taupes and…more white! Understated sophistication is a peony bouquet, a freshly picked flower placed in a rustic glass and a loosely folded napkin on white tablecloth.

Simple details will keep your styling interesting and without a frenzy of colour the beautiful details are what guests will notice. A place card handwritten with love will not be overlooked and a succulent plant is a bomboniere gift that complements the natural, effortless styling. In a fast-moving world colour palettes come and go but style lasts forever.
