From real feather details and bold hues to farm tables and a beautiful old barn, this wedding is the perfect marriage of southwestern style and a southern Georgia setting. Photographed by Andie Freeman at the beautiful Barn on Belmont in Athens, GA, this bright bohemian wedding inspiration will kick-start your planning!
Southwestern Bridal Style
This unique pin dot gown provided the inspiration for this wedding shoot. The turquoise-studded belt and delicate tulle skirt influenced both the colors and textures used in the decor. Turquoise jewelry is totally trending this season, and big bold pieces complement the bride in this gown.
Bohemian beauty is all about natural and carefree makeup. Rosy cheeks and soft pink lips give the bride a sun-kissed glow on her big day, and bold black mascara enhances her eyelashes for a stunning look.
Bridal Beauty Tip: Ask your makeup artist to provide a touch-up kit to keep on hand. Outdoor summer weddings can get quite toasty and a quick makeup refresh may be necessary.
A boho bride almost always wears flowers in her hair. This bride’s bold hair piece complements her groom’s boutonniere, too!
Southwestern wildflowers meet southern charm with this stunning cascading bouquet, finished with vintage ribbons and lace.
Bridal Tip: Big organic bouquets are a trend we love! Remember to carry your blooms low so you don’t block your face when you’re walking down the aisle.
Adorable Ring Bearer Ideas
How adorable is a little man dressed like a mini-me version of the groom? This ring bearer might be the cutest attendant at the wedding!
You can even infuse southwestern style in the ring bearer’s accessories. We love the idea of swapping a traditional ring bearer pillow for a nest adorned with feathers! This unique detail will garner “oohs” and “aahs” as your little guy marches down the aisle.
Eclectic Table Decor
Southwest flair meets southern chic with this farm table display. Assorted chairs and layered china enhance the bohemian feel. Bringing in pops of color with bright napkins and a big centerpiece is a way to add uniformity in this eclectic setting.
The little details really shine on this table! A cowboy boot place card holder is a nod to the southern locale, and silverware tied with ribbon adds another punch of pattern and texture.
Rustic floral chair backers indicate where the bride and groom sit.
Aztec-Inspired Wedding Cake
The inspiration for this wedding is infused in the cake as well. The bright wedding cake features a geometric Aztec-inspired design, topped with a gorgeous handmade sugar flower. The southwestern display transforms the side of the barn for a unique photo op!
Succulent Wedding Favors
Faux succulent bottle stoppers are a fitting choice for this wedding theme. Send each guest home with a little “thank you” for helping you celebrate your big day!
