INSIDER: Wedding Inspo for Brides-to-Be
THE BIG DAY
The best thing about planning a wedding is the variety of themes, venues, vendors, and styles available to the modern bride. Dreaming of a ceremony in a secluded forest? No problem! Followed by an all-night, 1920s themed party? Sure! How about a wedding cake made entirely of cheese and biscuits or a champagne fountain? Anything is possible! Your wedding is an expression of your personality, and it should be everything you and your partner have been dreaming of. Whether you’re newly engaged or in the depths of wedding planning, read on for some fantastic theme ideas and the perfect Dovita gown to suit each one.
Gown Featured Above: Emily | Emma Collection
Bohemian-styled weddings are all about simplicity, natural beauty, and bespoke décor. We love the thought of a garden of fairy lights, colorful fresh flowers, and happy dancing guests! The Emily gown has a gorgeously delicate open back and a detailed top layer of soft and lightweight Chantilly lace which is simply perfect for a relaxed, outdoor wedding. Pair this gorgeous gown with a pretty pair of sandals and a custom-made (or even home-made if you’re feeling creative) flower crown and you’ll be a true bohemian beauty. Table décor can be rustic and personalized, such as pinecone name placements or beautiful hanging decorations made from feathers spritzed with gold paint and glitter. Be kind to your outdoor venue with paper straws, solar fairy lights, and upcycled furniture.
The Roaring Twenties
Gown Featured Above: Collet | Emma Collection
If you’re dreaming of a vintage-inspired wedding, then check out the Collet gown! The unique design is just the right amount of vintage glam, and the detachable tulle cape gives Collet the modern edge you’ve been searching for. We think a rose-gold color scheme, Polaroid-inspired wedding invitations, classic roses, and glamorous headbands are the best way to perfect this theme. Go the extra mile by arriving in a vintage car and buying a classic pocket watch for the groom and his best man.
Gown Featured Above: Alisa | Gloria Collection
Nothing complements a fairy-tale-themed wedding quite like a ball gown. Alisa gown has a romantic sweetheart neckline and a delicately beaded Chantilly lace bodice to add a touch of sparkle to your day. The voluminous, tiered tulle skirt is princess-perfect and looks dreamy next to a bouquet of pink roses! This theme is all about pastel colors, fresh flowers, sweet treats, and adorable table decorations. For a great homemade name placement, fill some glass jars with your favorite chocolate or sweets, cover the top with some pretty material, and add a handwritten name tag on a brown card. Keep your guests entertained by asking them to write secret notes in tiny glass bottles for you and your partner to open after the honeymoon.
Sleek and Contemporary
Jumpsuit Featured Above: Solange | Solange Collection
If you love everything trendy and current, then a contemporary wedding theme is the perfect way to showcase your style. Jumpsuits are heating up right now, and brides have fallen head over heels for the super chic, sleek, and stylish Solange jumpsuit. Pair this jumpsuit with ivory heels and minimalist jewelry for the ideal match. This theme is all about thinking outside of the wedding bubble, so try using greenery instead of florals – a centerpiece or bouquet of lush vines, leaves, and other green foliage will help set the tone for your wedding. Keep decorations simple, and splash out instead on fancy hors d’oeuvres and an impressive selection of trendy cocktails. You can even transform something as traditional as a wedding cake into a contemporary focal point by choosing a cake made entirely of cheese!
