There is something that is so intensely captivating about the desert. The desert does not have the stereotypical lush greenery or the peaceful blue waters that we typically think of as “beautiful”. You have to look just a bit deeper to find beauty in the endless sand dunes and stark plains of the desert.
The subtle and completely unique beauty of the desert make it the perfect place for a wedding ceremony. Not to mention, the subdued colors of the desert make it the perfect backdrop for a wedding that features bright, bold colors. Vivid reds and rich oranges would contrast beautifully with the camel, caramel, and beige colors of the desert.
Light and airy fabrics are a must for a desert wedding. I imagine layers or organza, chiffon and tulle blowing in the wind, bringing to mind images of Moroccan caravans and tunics.
I am loving these beautifully ethereal and flowy chiffon wedding dresses and accessories . They fit right in to the slightly bohemian and uncoventional vibe of the desert.
And what about that stunning ombre wedding cake in vibrant shades of pink, peach, and light yellow? When I saw this cake, I was reminded of the vivid reds and oranges of a desert sunset as the sun slowly descend behind the sandy dunes.
To really go for an ethnic look, why not do a beautiful sheer head scarf instead of a veil? Totally unique and totally gorgeous too!
Now it is your turn. What are you loving about this theme? What would you include in a desert wedding to make it all your own?
