A beach wedding is all about the magic of love, free spirit and romance. To match the unique experience of your big day you’ll need a wedding gown of sophisticated elegance and graceful silhouette, still, with a touch of sassy bohemian feel. Bohemian wedding dresses have this very particular style combining vintage romantic charm with contemporary playfulness and a bit of bold sensuality. Nothing matches the enchantment of a beach wedding better than this perfect fusion of sweet and sexy.
What better chance to look gorgeous and express your personality than wearing a handmade wedding dress from the Barzelai’s boho wedding dresses collection?! “I get excited everyday by the delicate balance between old and new”- says the Tel Aviv based designer Orit Barzelai. “Living and designing in a warm climate surrounded by white buildings and soft sand it is inevitable that my bride would look effortlessly laid back yet chic and feminine”.
In her unique re-interpretation of vintage nostalgia, she uses luxurious materials, such as sheer silks, delicate tulle, fine lace fabrics and airy chiffons, adorned with exquisite embroideries and decorative beads. These are beautifully combined with contemporary textiles that stretch and provide comfort and keep the lines of the dress. The ‘keen ability to engineer a flexible fit for all body types while maintaining a fashion forward aesthetic’ is the key to the success and popularity of her remarkable wedding dresses.
The tops feature vintage-inspired patterns like sweetheart necklines, retro bateaus, V-necklines, corsets and romantic off-the-shoulder necklines, as well as bolder contemporary cuts like halters, spaghetti-straps, strapless bustiers, open backs and deep but aesthetic décolletages. Shoulders are often covered with short or long bell-shape, cut-egdes, or kimono sleeves made of delicate lace or tulle. Skirts are designed so as to complement and emphasize the tops – from simpler form-fitting sheath silhouettes, through romantic full-circle or bell-shape patterns, to frivolous boho-chic designs.
We hope you’ll find your perfect boho-chic wedding dress in the Orit Barzelai’s gorgeous collection. Visit her Etsy shop for more info.
