The Bohemian Bride

Gypsy Wanderer dress, White Magazine

Have you ever looked through a pile of wedding magazines and thought, “OMG I HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON WITH THIS ENTIRE WORLD”?

You are not alone. In fact you may be a free spirit, unbound by social norms, disheartened by traditional wedding gowns and the commercial extravaganza  (my own wedding dress cost $90 and I burped my wedding vows).

You walk in the direction of your dreams, choosing the path less travelled. Perhaps you are a creative soul, you follow your heart not your head. You may be a restless gypsy, a nomad who believes in freedom, and love without possession.

Thankfully, there are a few magazines responding to the needs of the bohemian bride, among them White magazine and Hello May magazine.

One such bride Maria, emailed me during her frustrating search for a bohemian-style wedding dress. We exchanged emails, photos and lace samples, culminating in this 1970’s-style dress which embodies Maria’s free spirit. Watch Maria and Mitch’s adorable love story here.

Despite the challenges, I like to undertake custom-order dresses because it gives me insight into the styles which brides are looking for but can’t find.  I love the magic which follows when hearts and hands work together.

Since posting a photo of Maria’s dress on our testimonials page, we have received dozens of requests for her dress. So we have made a few extra Gypsy Wanderer dresses available for purchase in our store. Or email us for a custom order and free lace samples.

Disclaimer: If your husband grows an unauthorised 1970’s moustache the marriage is automatically annulled.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and everything. But think of if you added some
    great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips,
    this website could definitely be one of the greatest in its field.
    Terrific blog!
