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.
