It’s fair to say the traditional white taffeta gown is a given on the checklist when it comes to most women’s weddings. Every girl dreams of their fairy tale day, which is probably where said tradition came from really; Cinderella etc.


The most Instagram/Pinterest worthy wedding (thanks to Henry Holland) of former model, current actress, Agyness Deyn and her now husband Joel McAndrew, Hedge Fund Manager, took place on August 28th in Brooklyn Heights, New York, with the bride shunning tradition and wearing a blushed pink olden style dress complete with tulle and bright blue court shoes. The piece was created by London-based designer Molly Goddard; compliment to Aggy’s (as she’s known) native country. The groom, Joel, also matched the bridal party wearing a white suit and teal pocket square. Aside from the wedding attire, the newly-wed bride had an arrangement of white orchids and wheat as her wedding bouquet. In recent years with the development of trends, media coverage and availability of different settings, wedding parties now opt to choose their own personal style for their big day and not conforming with what your classic 21st century bride would encompass in her ceremony and reception. Various celebrities such as Poppy Delevingne, Olivia Palermo and Fearne Cotton have all wed in modern day style making the occassion an even more personal and memorable one.

Online stores such as ASOS and Debenhams have recently began to stock boho bride attire to keep up with the Kardashians the latest fad and brides-to-be are loving it. Below, we’ve picked out the best of what’s to offer if you’re interested in joining the Pinterest brides*. Note: ASOS & Debenhams also do grooms and guest apparel. If all else fails while you’re striving for a picture perfect wedding lookbook, add a flower crown! It’s all the rage.
