  Getting it together for 2018 means adding newbies to the collections. Above is an ideal example of a lace I've wanted to add to Boho for some time: a very beautifully beaded Alencon I've called JULIET after  the most traditionally romantic character in history.  For me heavy beadwork in this sheath/evening gown style goes more in the direction of Gatsbyesque but with the Juliet theme in mind it lends itself  well to the fairytale side of Bohemian.  I just can't wait to get this dress on an actual bride . . . .
Above is another new gem going a bit more in the direction of tradition.  Meet ARABELLA with an allover Valencine lace bodice complimented with Chantilly lace bordering the hem and bell sleeves.   The skirt is yards of tulle and layers of crinoline.  The great thing about this dress is it's grand scale enough to go formal yet  ballet legnth(above the ankles) so there's easy movement all though your wedding day . . . .

What could be more romantic and on point season wise than a tartan wedding during the holidays?  Tartans and plaids are practically synonymous with Christmas both in decor and fashion, not to mention everything from wrapping paper to Christmas cards. Great fashion inspo from touches and accents to full blown tartanesque with the groom in a kilt!

What a treat for a Christmas wedding--The white suede cape and faux lamb hat. Covering your gown with a cape is ideal. This cape is roomy and won't squash your dress.  Trimmed in maribou (bird feathers) this cape sports friendly fur to keep the chill off in cold climes. Since this is pretty much a custom piece it can be ordered in wool velvet, cashmere--options that ould make for a lovely and original cape.

If Baby's Breath takes your breath away in spring and summer just wait till you see how great it is for winter and Christmas.  For years florists used Baby's Breath as a filler flower in wedding bouquets.  Now ever popular (and inexpensive to boot), we've discovered Baby's Breath can be magnificent all on it's own in everything from tablescapes, bouquets and circles of it tucked into head wreaths.  Personally I'm crazy over it summer, spring, fall and especially winter with all it's delicacy and frothiness so perfect for the holiday season . . . .

Whether you're wearing crocheted shorties or long, opera length beauties —gloves are glam and can really add some spark to your bridal look. If you're getting married this time of year when the chill is on, long gloves help warm up hands and arms. You can go with the classic white and ivory or jazz up your look with any length, color, texture, even pattern. Just like some brides are showing some pizazz wearing different color shoes with their gown, glove color is an option you have as well. Experiment, then go right ahead and be as adventuresome as you want!
