27 September 2016

Dreaming of Europe? We believe SA is the finest state in the world, but that doesn't mean we too aren't affected by a little 'wanderlust'!

Introduce Italian-inspired rustic elements into your style to create the effortless style so characteristic of chic Europeans. They combine glamorous pieces with earthy elements, such as woods and luxurious materials, for style that is enviably glam! Consider wooden table tops with golden cutlery and crystal motives to ensure your mix of rustic and luxury is spot on!

For true authenticity, aim to ensure your food and bomboniere are also European inspired. A 'bread' bar with fresh crusty loafs is a delicious idea, as are Italian inspired wedding favours. Think quality olive oil, homemade tomato sauce or a fabulous bottle of wine.

BOA STYLE - COCKTAIL LOUNGE RECEPTION

3 August 2016

Invite your guests to join you for a sophisticated, elegant and kid free wedding reception. Cocktail lounges are elite and beautiful, romantic and special. We think they make for the perfect venue, with lounges, catering and music. Undeniably non-traditionally we love the style and class associated with a cocktail lounge venue.

Create a unique reception concept and program, cake cutting and speeches on arrival? This will allow guests to party the night away. Perhaps have a designated lounge area for parents and bridal party, playing off the tradition of the bridal party table.



Slip into something a little more fun and sexy for the reception. A wedding gown in a cocktail lounge might get a little hot and not be the most comfortable choice. Gold sequins have always been a fan of ours, or somehting like this gorgeous, white flowing dress is very pretty and appropriate.

If you channel you inner Marie Antoinette you immediately vision opulent designs, gorgeous gowns and luxe everything. A chateau dressed in timeless tones of pastels, pinks and gold’s are the perfect backdrop for this soiree. The aim – a plethora of cakes, a multitude of props and intricate details. As a bride, the search for your gown should be one that brings out the soft, sweet and fancy side of you, so think ball gown shapes, layers and a lot of beading and detail.

Lavish floral arrangements and chandeliers, elongated tables and chaise back chairs all make for luxurious extra details. Gold vases contrast beautifully with china dinnerware in muted pastel tones and gold trimmings. Your stationery should reflect the theme with cursive writing and an ornate border; why not have them cut in the shape of a handheld mirror, such a super cute idea. Create a seating area styled with antique sofas and armchairs complete with a few pouffes for your guests comfort, just like the picture below.

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - SIMPLY WHITE

1 August 2016

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 wedding, brides of adelaide, weddingwhite wedding, brides of adelaide, weddingwhite wedding, brides of adelaide, weddingwhite wedding, brides of adelaide, wedding

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.

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - CADMIUM ORANGE

25 July 2016

How seriously stunning is this colour?! It is so under appreciated that we have take it upon ourselves to shine the spotlight on it. A nod to the ‘60s and ‘70s, cadmium orange evokes a sentiment or optimism, fun and fantasy. Both playful and sophisticated in its appeal, Cadmium Orange is a warm, welcoming and subtly dramatic orange shade that is striking enough to stand on its own or act as a bold contrast. A beautiful colour for autumn weddings, but don’t be afraid to utilise this is the gorgeous spring weather.

BOA STYLE - I DO DISCO

19 July 2016

Burn baby, burn. This wedding is all about the glitz of the wild disco era; dazzling mirror balls and A LOT of fun. For the couple who love to dance and want their wedding to reflect the fun of a dance party, this wedding style is for you. We’ve put a modern spin on the retro era by toning down the colour scheme a little. Sparkly golds, navys and silver will turn disco fever wedding appropriate so you can maintain an element of style and still whip out your favourite dance moves from Saturday Night Fever.

There's no doubt about it, disco is funky, which is why your styling is going to be a little more eccentric than the average wedding. Mirrored balls are a must - but if you're worried about going too OTT, use them in more subtle ways than your usual in your face types hanging from the ceiling. Place cards on mini disco balls are so cute, or you can merely interpret the disco ball into a modern and cool alternative. These photo booth backgrounds are glitzy and very disco, and disco balls make a fabulous prop for guests to pose with. Bejeweled heels will also sparkle and do the job or you can add a touch of disco shine to your bouquet and bridesmaids outfits.

When you invite guests to a disco wedding, you're setting the standard high - they're going to expect to have a GOOD time. You need to set the atmosphere to get the dance floor crowded and everybody on their feet. Pick your favourite disco jams, and ensure the drinks are flowing. Put your drinks menus in photo frames that reflect your disco style and a mini disco ball on top of your cake is the perfect finishing touch. Finally, create the scene of the disco era with mirrored hanging lights and disco ball string lights that will ensure light is dancing over the walls all night.

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - TIFFANY BLUE + SILVER

18 July 2016

"Darling, darling I simply just love Tiffany's!" Ms Golightly [aka Audrey Hepburn] was onto something in the classic film, and one of our all-time favourites, 'Breakfast At Tiffany's'. Her infatuation with the jewellers and endearing nature has had women everywhere swooning for diamonds and class for decades. Infuse your special day with the unmistakable charm and sophistication that comes so effortlessly to Holly Golightly and create a day to remember...

The classic Tiffany blue shade should act as the base of your styling - a hue that goes oh so beautifully with silver and white! The colour reminds one of the excitement and glamour that comes with receiving a little special something in a lovely Tiffany & Co. box. To create a theme, it's a fabulous idea to scatter pearls along your tables as centrepieces and to use faux Tiffany & Co. boxes as favours filled with deliciously delectable cupcakes.

BOA STYLE - SKULL CENTREPIECES

30 June 2016

So usually when you mention using skulls in your wedding décor people pull the funniest faces at the thought – it’s quite amusing to say the least – but we bet they have never seen them look this good! Inspired by an Alexander McQueen scarf that caught our eye here at the office, it combined girlie pink with edginess through the incorporation of the iconic Alexander McQueen skull. Ladies, we promise you, this post proves that, if need be, skulls can be incorporated into a wedding and still look bridal.

There are so many shapes, forms and sizes that skull heads come in! One of our absolute fave is using Swarovski encrusted skulls; they are girly, glam and look spectacular when paired with fresh florals and candles. Bell jars covering black skulls add an air of modern chicness to any centrepiece, especially when placed on a mirrored base. The key to pulling off skull décor is to keep the palette high-end and clean through the use of black, white, gold or even botanicals, the aim is to make them stand out.

COLOUR PALETTE - RED + PINK

27 June 2016

We love a good colour block; it’s so modern and refreshing! Gorgeously vibrant reds are a match made in heaven when paired with pink hues for a pretty and playful wedding palette –especially when set against a bit of gold or copper. These tones are fabulous as accent colours to really make a statement and add real warmth and intimacy to your look. Reminiscent of raspberries and rubies, be inspired by all the darling ways this palette can make your celebration pop…

Featuring one impactful statement piece is a modern and vibrant way to use this palette; An ombre draped curtain ceremony backdrop complete with romantically lit candles, or a luscious centrepiece filled with red and pink florals to the perfect abstract manicure of bold colours against the crisp white of a wedding dress! If you love this palette, but don't want it to be too bold, choose to limit the reds to pops in specific places and use a light shade of pink everywhere else.

FLORAL FRIDAY - PAMPAS GRASS

24 June 2016

This extraordinary foliage really puts the “d” in dreamy. Growing wildly in seas of feathery foliage, this grass looks sublime swaying in the air, these chameleonic species lend a softly sculptural element to wedding styling. It’s the touch of luxe that your nuptials need, standing at up to 5 feet tall in plumes of white or pink hues. For the perfect ceremonial drama create an incredible backdrop of pampas grass plumes, arranged in larger than life fan formations, an overhead canopy, an enclosed circle or as giant clusters spilling from urns.

pampas grass wedding decor - brides of adelaidepampas grass wedding reception centrepiece - brides of adelaidepampas grass ceremony backdrop - brides of adelaide

The feathery plumes are lush and flashy so they don’t need many other flowers to compliment the,. However, they do look stunningly striking against green foliage for your centrepieces and bouquets. You can also use it to decorate your wedding arch or table, venue entrance, or in any other creative way. Used sparingly or not, pampas grass will give your wedding the lush luxe look that will have your guests speaking for years to come.

BOA STYLE - WINTER WONDERLAND

21 June 2016

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. Dreamy up-do’s adorned with magical headpieces are a must for the perfect finishing touch to any snow brides look and adds the perfect amount of sparkle.

Splashes of gold and silver add warmth and opulence to a winter celebration, even to the most simple and rustic of tables.

BOA STYLE - CAT THEMED

31 May 2016

It’s the purrfect day! Cats have exploded on the internet and go perfectly together just as mason jars do with weddings – so why not skip everything in between and out cats and weddings together instead – crazy right?! It’s cuteness overload! It’s fun, stylish and totally unique. Fellow feline loving ladies, be prepared because this is your dream come true…

cat themed wedding - brides of adelaidekitten in bow tie - brides of adelaideconfetti litter cat themed wedding - brides of adelaide

Don’t leave any phrase unpunned – ‘just meowied,’ ‘furever,’ ‘hiss + purrs’ – the options are endless and are relevant to every aspect of your celebration. Balls of yarn make for the perfect centrepieces when scattered in different sizes and are available in so many colours to match your palette. If you are looking for an alternative to table numbers, naming each table a different type of cat is genius and keeps the theme flowing.

Kitty ears are the perfect accessory addition for any bride and not to mention fun! If you and your partner have cats as a pet then it’s a cute idea to make references to them. Try naming the cocktails at the bar after them and their personalities, or have stickers of their faces on the favour packages. It will sure be one fun feline-fest that you will remember furever [see, even now we are getting in on the puns]!

BOA STYLE - COTTON

26 May 2016

Southern brides have been using cotton balls in their wedding décor for years, and we can finally see why! More suited for a rustic affair, cotton looks particularly welcoming accented among wood/timber, twine and vintage vases. The natural and beautiful cotton ball is lovely in everything from bouquets to cake toppers—even garlands and chandeliers. Have a look below and be inspired about all the ways you can include cotton…

For a winter wedding, use it to add fluffy white touches to ivory anemones, berries and even dusty miller for that icy, winter look. Tall cotton branches displayed in large vases or milking cans are perfect for venue entrances and even aisle décor – they can even be used in your bouquets too! If you’re looking for something a little different then cotton in your bouquet is perfect, and both modern and traditional.

BOA STYLE - WINTER DREAMCATCHER

24 May 2016

It’s time to take it bask to your teenage years where it seemed like a pretty big deal to have a dreamcatcher hanging up in your room. With everything from geometrics to feathers making a comeback, it was only a matter of time until dreamcatchers resurfaced. Originating as a Native American handcraft, dreamcatchers are said to snare bad dreams and only allow filter the good thoughts into your sleep – which makes them a pretty lovely feature for a day that’s filled with happiness, hopes and good vibes. Boho brides eat your heart out…

Dreamcatchers look absolutely breathtaking as a backdrop to your ceremony or bridal table, but look equally as gorgeous hanging over receptions table as a suspended centrepiece. If you are worried about overdoing the dreamcatcher, your cakes are the perfect way to express this style – discuss with your cake supplier all the crafty ways you can include the elements on your cake design.

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.

BOA STYLE - LOFT WEDDING

19 April 2016

There is something striking and special about a loft – whether it’s the exposed brick walling or the wrought iron and wooden beam roofing, it is the ideal venue for brides looking for something different. The key to executing aloft-wedding is to aim for modern style and balance the industrial or rustic architecture in the room. Contrary to what many think, not all loft spaces give off that industrial type feel – although we LOVE it- a white loft space is the perfect blank canvas to create the wedding of your dreams. All the inspiration you need is right here…

The brick walling of a loft looks magical behind strung lights and candles while the high ceilings make for some glamorous drapery and out-of-this world chandeliers for that added sophistication. If a loft venue is what you are after and you manage to score one with ceiling windows, you’ve hit the jackpot. Take full advantage of the generous lighting pouring into the room and begin your festivities earlier in the day – your photographer will love you for it!

When there is a need of a focal point frames don’t disappoint. Hang some frames to create an interesting background for your ceremony or suspend them above your bridal table for a multidimensional effect. You can also place the frames flat around your centrepiece – or for something a little more creative, use them around the bases of your dessert cakes!

Communicate with your guests and utilise frames for everything from welcome signs to menus, labels and seating charts. Use a framed mirror, chalkboard or even a glass frame and simply write with a chalk texture or window marker.
