There are so many options when it comes to planning a wedding; will you go traditional, or left of centre? Destination, or local? Extravagant, or intimate? Luckily, this year our favourite celebrities are marrying in incredibly stylish fashion…and giving us plenty of #bridalinspo.
After marrying now-husband, James Cook in a traditional wedding in Knightsbridge, England, Poppy Delevingne got the best of both worlds by hosting a second ceremony in Marrakech. A distinctly bohemian affair, the bride wore a non-traditional gown that echoed the beautiful surroundings of the ceremony. While not everybody has access to her A-list guests or can fly to Morocco on the turn of a heel, we’re here to help recreate the look!
For her second bridal look, Poppy chose a stunning Peter Dundas for Emilio Pucci tiered gown. The delicate floral embellishment and kaftan bodice echoed both a bridal aesthetic and complemented her surroundings. This look is easy to replicate, and is perfect for the bride who wants a little bit of bohemian flair to her dress.
For the bride on a budget, Free People have a huge range of similar dresses that will give you the Moroccan flair that Poppy exuded for her walk down the aisle. We love the Jenny Printed Dress for stealing Poppy’s style. With a similar print and silhouette, and under $500, it’s perfect for the boho bride to be.
For a similar feel, but a little more bridal, we love Lela Rose’s Printed silk gown from Net-a-Porter. Still feeling bohemian with the beautiful print, the fitted silhouette is a little more polished and is perfect for the bride for wants a little personality for her wedding, but wants a little tradition as well.
If you want the feel of Poppy’s gown, but don’t want to opt for print, Saint Laurent’s wrap-effect gown from Net-a-Porter is the perfect choice. The draping and wrap effect gives the feel of Poppy’s dress, but the off-white colour palate is decidedly more bridal.
For Poppy’s bridal look, she kept jewellery to a minimum, wearing simple hair accessories and of course, her ring, so to replicate the look, opt for minimal, accent pieces to bring out your inner bohemian. For a touch of glam, ElizabethJEAN’s Viktor armband is perfect for the boho bride. Its minimalistic style won’t overpower your look, and is a little more boho than a traditional bracelet.
Tiffany & Co are the go to for bridal jewellery, and the Link Bracelet from their Tiffany Enchant collection is perfect for a destination-themed wedding. The intricate lace-like detail is decadently bridal, and as an accent piece, you won’t need anything else but your veil to complete your look.
If bracelets aren’t your thing, add a little sparkle to your hair. Like Poppy, a subtle embellishment around your veil is perfect for adding a little glamour without verging on being too extravagant. Jennifer Behr’s vine headband is the perfect addition to a boho bridal look, and at $500, isn’t breaking the budget.
Poppy didn’t have traditional bridesmaids for the second instalment of her wedding, leaving the duties to sister, Cara Delevingne. Keeping to the non-traditional theme, Cara chose a pantsuit from Emilio Pucci and a flower crown, and it’s easily replicated for your special day.
Not everyone wants bridesmaids in suits, but there’s many options to embody Cara’s style. We love Carla Zampatti’s gorgeous Forget Me Not gown for it’s simplistic silhouette with a big impact. Style with a flower crown, and loose waves to embody Cara’s look, and Poppy’s bohemian style.
Sass & Bide are the go to for tribal meets fashion, and to add a little Moroccan flair to your bridal party, there’s no shortage of spectacular looks to choose from. To embody Cara’s style, we love the White Noise dress. The embroidered bodice offers a little boho flair, but the overall fabrication of the dress winks to bridal…and makes sure that your bridesmaids will be will love it!
If you want to stay true to Cara’s styling, there’s some fabulous suiting to choose from. On the luxe side is Stella McCartney’s soft and feminine Bartlett blazer and Felice wide leg pants. The look is perfect for a summer timed wedding, and is something to set your bridal party apart. Accessorise with flower crowns and you’ll have the perfect Delevingne styling.
While we all can’t jet off to the other side of the world for a wedding, Poppy’s destination wedding can be recreated in your own backyard. Borrowing her styling, rugs, ferns, and a stunning marquee is all you need to embody her stylish nuptials. There are stunning views that rival the Moroccan coastline down the Great Ocean Road and the Mornington Peninsula, which will still give your wedding the feel of a destination wedding. If you’d rather keep it local, a garden wedding will still give the feel of Poppy’s I Dos, and there are plenty of themed venues for your reception, like the Spice Market in the CBD.
