Vintage Bohemian Chic...Part I

I kind of been holding back on you guys regarding a few specifics. I do have a clear "vision" for what I want my wedding to look like, but I hate the word "theme." Let's use "style" or "feel"..."ambiance"...whatever, no matter what you call it, I got one and I will share it with you all today! (YAY!)

I have coined our style as "vintage bohemian chic," mainly because it sounds really cool, but also because I could not make up my mind if I wanted a vintage or bohemian style wedding with just a general overall "chic-ness"...so I decided to combine them! "Impossible," you say! Nope...very doable.

When I first began looking for style inspirations, I came across this Seville poster and totally fell in love. It depicts a fabulously festive, Art Deco, classy, colorful and fun event. This is totally my idea of vintage. (source)

So, from this image, I pulled my color scheme. Here are our colors, they are awesome! (source)

I am mainly focusing on the purple, green and peach colors with the mustard color as an accent.

After discovering these treasures, I began to travel on a decor whirlwind. I was envisioning a mix between "Stomping at the Savoy" and a "Great Gatsby" garden party fiesta!

I reached a wind tunnel, however, when I fell in love with this dress. It is Pronovias Regaliz and it is friggin gorgeous! But, so NOT vintage, well...not vintage in the Art Deco, Seville poster kind of way... (source)

The reason why I totally love this gown is because my own personal style is somewhat bohemian. I wear my hair naturally curly, am partial to baby doll dresses and funky colors. I knew that I wanted something flowy and ethereal in a gown and swooned over this one from the moment I saw it on the rack.

So, I felt as though I was in a conundrum between my original decor plan and the feel I got from the dress that I loved. How do I fix this? Well, I find inspiration in one of my favorite places...

What do you guys think so far?

I don't see a problem...it's a beautiful dress. It has a bit of an old fashioned feel to it with a touch of bohemian kinda it will blend beautifully.

Really? Thanks Ladies! I guess I was thinking like a 20-30s vibe...but I think if I just add vintage elements here and there I can make it work
