We love nothing more than hearing all about our brides’ plans for their big day, and with summertime here we are seeing many of you taking advantage of the better weather and opting for taking your wedding day into the great outdoors. From shabby-chic garden settings, to rustic barns, and bohemian marquees, we love something that’s a little different here at Oscar Lili, and are always excited to help our brides find a dress perfect for any occasion.
When spending the day outdoors, many brides want their wedding dress to have a relaxed feel; so we’ve picked out some gorgeous boho-inspired styles which we think strike the perfect balance between chic and comfortable. With lace, florals and embroidery being prominent bridal trends of 2019, this is the perfect time for Boho-brides to be spoilt for choice when it comes to romantic and dreamy dresses.
We think you will love Sarah, by Oscar Lili. This dress is the epitome of effortless and is very much unique. The material is made up of soft satin, layered with lightweight tulle which is delicately embroidered with a whimsical floral pattern. The sheer bell sleeves give a nostalgic vintage vibe and paired with the light A-line skirt create a lovely, relaxed Boho silhouette. To keep it modern the neckline is V-shaped, and would look great with some simple necklaces to accessorise. More traditionally seen to the back, what adds a little more interest is the gorgeous button detailing up the front. Such a flattering and easy wearing style which would suit a variety of body-shapes, you’ll never want to take it off.
If you prefer a little understated glamour, as opposed to vintage-inspired then we think BT19-07 from Enzoani’s Beautiful collection will be the dress for you. The fitted bodice has a plunge sweetheart neck which is contemporary, flattering and a bit more sexy. However, the lightweight flowing tulle fabric gives a beautiful A-line drape to the skirt which keeps it feeling relaxed and simple. The all-over embroidered Chantilly lace creates that bohemian feel and we love the romantic addition of the soft off-shoulder lace sleeves. There are subtle sequins sewn onto the bodice which dial up the glamour just a tad if you want some sparkle. This is a versatile dress as it can be dressed up with your accessories or completely simplified into more of a classic strapless gown as the straps can be removed.
Next up we have selected some bridal separates, for the girl who loves variety. These are perfect for the boho-bride as our collection is made up of gorgeous lace and beaded fabrics, which can mix and match with simpler pieces to feel a little bit more casual than a full detailed gown. Another benefit is that separates are super comfortable to wear and with the option for layering tops, you can change your style and be prepared for varying temperatures throughout the day.
Worn over a custom made corset or thin strappy cami, our Bluebell Bolero by Oscar Lili is one of our favourites which is made of 70’s inspired crochet lace. There are a variety of options with this style as sleeves are either long or ¾ length depending on the bride’s preference. It comes in a flattering high neck style which adds a little sophistication to your look, or you can choose off-the-shoulder which would be gorgeous on a warm summer day. We think our sleek Naomi skirt in matte double crepe silk would be a perfect pairing, giving a look of understated elegance and originality.
