Mismatched Bridal Style

For bridesmaids dresses, choose similar colors and prints in different flowing silhouettes for a cohesive but different style. Switch up the hairstyles with messy updos, loose braids or beachy waves tucked with wildflowers for a fun look.

Live Music 

If you’re looking to emulate the spirit of a music festival, then having live music at your reception is a no-brainer. Whether it’s a band who covers the classics or an indie-folk duo, your guests will be up on their feet and grooving to the beat.
