The Bohemian Bride

Not all brides are created equal. Some are more “bohemian flower child” than “ballroom princess”. When it comes to achieving that effortless boho bridal outfit, the key is picking a dress and accessories that reflect your laidback style—but turned up a notch on the glam factor!

Keep your hair loose and flowy, perhaps some beachy waves, and keep your makeup natural and simple to go with the overall relaxed feel.

Check out a few of our favorite bohemian-inspired bridal picks below!

Something Blue

Should you walk down the aisle without something blue? The tradition dates back to the Victorian England, but blue has been a symbol of faithfulness, purity, and loyalty since the days of ancient Rome. Sapphire earrings or a baby blue garter are a sweet and simple way to honor tradition, but bright cobalt nail polish isn’t as rebellious as your Great Aunt Muriel thinks! Before the nineteenth century, blue wedding dresses were far more common than white  gowns. Today, a soft blue dress makes a great "cut the cake" dress option!

Some brides choose to add a blue ribbon to their bouquets or add a blue monogram to their gowns. Unlike some bridal traditions, this is one custom that encourages creativity. Do you prefer teal to indigo? Adore azure, but can’t abide royal blue? Choose navy blue peep-toes or cobalt pumps to complement a more traditional gown.

Check out some of our blue bridal picks below from the Zappos Wedding Shop!

Destination Weddings

When it comes to types of weddings, a romantic destination wedding is quickly gaining popularity for a couple of different reasons. There’s the obvious appeal of a more intimate ceremony with a small gathering of your closest family and friends—perhaps even just the two of you!

A small destination wedding can also be a more budget-friendly option since there’s less guests involved. You could even take the opportunity to combine your out-of-town nuptials with a family vacation or better yet, the honeymoon!

In keeping with the more relaxed vibe of a destination wedding, check out a few of our picks below for the destination bride! Simple, unfussy looks are best--particularly for a tropical/beach setting.

Fall Wedding Picks

Autumn wedding bells are about to ring, and it’s definitely cause for anticipation and excitement. Although bridal whites and creams will never go out of season, autumnal weddings are the perfect setting for something with a little bit more drama and richness.

For a formal, black-tie affair, we love the idea of classic black, deep navy or rich jewel-toned dresses for the bridesmaids. If your wedding is a more casual daytime event, softer hues such as blushes, beiges and pinks make a great backdrop for the season’s richer color palettes.

Check out some of our current favorites in bridal dresses, shoes and accessories. For even more wedding options, shop the Wedding Shop!
