This past fall, we had the honor to create custom ribbons for the Au Jardin Floresie Workshop. We chose a color palette of stone, midnight grey, and dusty lavender to reflect the adventurous, organic palette. The florals were wild and feminine, the paper details modern, and the bridal style bohemian. The crumbling castle location added to the adventurous, nomadic design. Another favorite detail was the ground floral installation. This striking design added an unexpected and therefore unforgettable edge to the design. As a result, the look was one we won’t soon forget. Similarly, we love the messy, undone bridal look paired with the modern table design. Due to this successful juxtaposition, we imagine many brides will be looking to pair bohemian and modern styles in the coming seasons. Almost certainly, we will refer back to this gorgeous design anytime we need a fresh take on The Nomadic  Bride style.


Opposites Attract


First of all, how could this location not inspire you? While we adore the look of a classic, refined design, creating ribbons for this boho look was refreshing. Many brides choose soft neutrals for their ribbons. For that reason, we opted for moodier, darker colors to better oppose the soft old world charm of the building. As a result, the look felt fresh. In contrast to many monochrome bouquets and ribbons, this look was daring. We are almost certain to see this contrasting trend in the coming season.


Finally, we must address the texture in this design. From the fluttery flower to the crumbling stone, this editorial is filled to the brim with textural inspiration. The fragile, billowy flowers in contrast to the ancient stone further the juxtaposed look thus creating a sense of opposition in harmony. Likewise, the bride’s airy gown opposes her textured, messy hair in a perfectly opposite way. Even more, the textural linens against the modern, sleek table ware further this feeling.
