Crossing the oceans: Any number of Asian Islands will do, but we’re seriously craving the white-sand beaches of Bali. With an ambient mix of party pleasure and hedonist indulgence, it’s the ideal combo for your big day.

The gown
Pick a gown that’s floaty and flowing – don’t go for gowns with too much fuss! Instead, choose natural fabrics and soft tones, a low-key design and plenty of romance.

Accessories
Keep it simple, keep it sweet. Whether you draw inspiration from glam gold or bountiful blooms, you don’t want the look to be overpowering.
Natural tones: A flower crown is the boho babe’s bestie. Real bride Kate pulls this look off so well!
Glam it up: We’re in love with Shut The Front Door’s beach-ready headpieces – dainty, with an almost vintage feel that lends itself perfectly to a bohemian beach wedding.
