Monochrome may be a favourite colour palette for weddings, but we bet you've never seen it looking so contemporary and funky! Black and white stripes will never get old as long as Kate Spade is around to inspire and are the coolest way to infuse a little quirky edge into your wedding day. The monochrome palette ensures the theme is still elegant and that your style really POPS! We don't know about you, but we're obsessed!
The myriad of ways you can incorporate black and white stripes into your wedding day is quite wonderfully astounding! The stripey bridesmaids dresses featured above are totally unexpected, but we love the unique way they completely stand out! Carry the theme across your styling with a little black and white ribbon tied around the groom and groomsmen's buttonholes. So chic!
Make this style really pop with the infusion of flowers in gorgeous bright and bold pink hues, very cosmopolitan!

What can be more romantic than a dusting of snow on your big day – just imagine all the dreamy shots your photographer can capture! A Winter Wonderland wedding in a palette of the prettiest soft neutrals, rather than bold reds and winter blues, looks so elegant with splashes of gold and silver metallic goodness. Combined with muted shades of green florals and you have the elegant winter wedding of your dreams…
A long sleeve lace wedding gown with a full ball-gown skirt is perfect to keep the winter chill away and keep within the romantic style of a winter wonderland celebration.

Calligraphy on all stationery is a must to complete the overall beauty of the theming. Think outside the box lovelies, just because you live in the city doesn’t mean you cant transform it into a gorgeous winter wonderland!

There is something so striking and appealing about a simple winter palette, which is why grey, white and green is up there as a fave. The muted tones of grey and green are warm and cosy and look lovely on a winter’s day. Imply quality, tranquility and comfort with these muses…
Bridesmaids look lovely dresses in grey on a winter’s day. For the venue, opt for grey tablecloths and/or napkins to keep the feel and have everything flow with one another. Flower selections should include textured foliage such as dusty miller and brunia balls mixed with green foliage and white roses and ranunculus.

Its easy to identify white orchids as a more ‘beachy’ type wedding floral, similar to the fragrant frangipani, with its blossoming yellow centre + crisp white petals, however we think thanks to their versatility, they are just as perfect in a modern affair. Fragrant + exotic, their impeccable look, soft petals, whimsy bloom, unique colouring options + shapes make them sensational choices for a bride. The flutter of "moth" orchids look exceptional when paired with roses in a brides bouquet. Whether arranged alone, in a group or cascading lavishly in a bouquet, they look super-fantastic + will add an air of elegance to your celebration.

THE COUPLE: Georgia + Harry
PALETTE: White. I chose all white decor because it is simple and elegant.
THE DRESS: Anne from Rapsimo made my dress and she did an amazing job! I didn’t want the night to be over because I wanted to keep wearing my dress. I was looking for something unique, which I had not seen before. My gown was a two-piece design, with a full skirt and train. It was gathered on the side with pockets. The top was sweet heart-shape with dainty spaghetti straps and covered with lace, pearls and beading.
THE RECEPTION: We loved the reception venue for its amazing food and ‘sunken’ dance floor. The coordinators were lovely to work with, very professional and organised. We also had a very large guests list so we needed to ensure our chosen venue could accommodate this.
THE DÉCOR: For the ceremony we displayed two large gypsophila arrangements on pedestals in tall clear vases filled with water. On each pew there was a bow tied up with satin ribbon and bunches of gypsophila. Harry and I handed out little bottles of bubbles and bags filled with white roses and rice for our ceremony exit. For our bridal table, we scattered gypsophila filled vases and crystal tea light candles across mirrored bases. On guest tables there were alternate centrepieces of gypsophila with crystal tea lights and crystal candelabras. Place cards were at each table setting with pearl stickers above and below guest names.
THE FLOWERS: My bouquet consisted of white roses whilst my bridesmaids carried gypsophila posies.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Harry and I wanted all natural photos with greenery backdrops. We chose Photos Xposed as our photographer. We loved Vinny and Lori and clicked with them so well from our first consultation. We knew they would make the day relaxing and enjoyable with their incredible sense of humour.

The very beautiful ‘milk glass’ has been the essence of incredible glassware since the 16th century. With it’s gorgeous colour and delicate delights it is the perfect inspiration for this wedding palette. It takes from the fragile character of milk glass and incorporates this throughout décor elements and fashion.

Captivating, on trend and fashion forward... make a statement with this unconventional wedding gown style. 'Midi length' is technically any hem line which falls below the knee and above the ankle. Often perceived as retro or vintage, we have some dresses that kick this concept to the side. These dresses are modern and cutting edge; we think they scream sophistication and style.
Whether you prefer A-line, full tulle or a two piece we have found a gorgeous gown for you.

It's burlap, hessian or canvased material... what ever tickles your little descriptive fancy. A super cool, easily accessible and underrated texture which we think looks amazing with lace. A palette doesn't always just consist of colours but also textures. Textures can come in the form of material and/or a particular mixture of colours and tones... Lace is a popular texture to work with, and it's super versatile. Predominantly in white or cream, paired with any colour, a unique scheme and vibe is created. Take lace and black - chic, sophisticate, sultry and moody... or lace and pale pink - so feminine, pretty, romantic and soft.
This palette combines the harshness and organic qualities or burlap with the femininity of lace. Like chalk and cheese, but we think it works oh so well!

The fishtail wedding dress, or mermaid style, is a favourite around BOA HQ! With it's figure hugging design and flared hemline. Flaunt your sexy curves in a gown that oozes modern glamour. Flaring out just below the knee, this design shows off each curve and contour of the female body.
Fishtail gowns can be as dramatic or subtle as desired. Likewise, the train can be long and exaggerated or basically non existent. What ever mirrors your personal style - the day is totally about you.
Strapless, sweetheart, one shoulder or high neck, we love them all! Chose gown style in accordance to height and body shape... strapless flatters shorter women while a high neck would give the illusion of a shorter torso.

A subtle colour palette, the Strawberry Cheesecake Wedding has a neutral scheme with hints of pastel pink and yellow. Tan and sand are predominant hues with elements of colour evident in decor and flowers scattered through out the day. It's slightly sweet but perfectly balanced, like creamy strawberry atop a biscuit base.
Perfect for any bride, it will translate into a modern, vintage, classic and boho wedding. We adore this feminine palette and feel it makes for a tasteful and elegant wedding. Blooms in pastel colours like the peony, rose and daisy are gorg...
