Here at Blush, we pride ourselves on an alternative, bohemian approach to wedding dress fashion. With that in mind, we design each gown, dress, and accessory for the free-spirited bride: the dreamer, the adventure seeker, the hopeless romantic. While our dresses are loved by brides with all types of wedding ceremonies - here are TOP 5 Wedding Venues that keep inspiring us in
Not just for cowboy boots and honky-tonk tunes, we LOVE a giant rustic barn venue for a wedding - set in an idyllic countryside town just a few miles outside of your city’s metropolis. Why not escape the hustle and bustle of city life, for a simple and sweet setting to say ‘I DO’. We envision it decked out in beautiful string lights, shabby-chic chairs, a neutral palette (think muted sage greens and warm wheat tones), and wildflower bouquets (be sure to add some plumes - the flower du jour!) Check out our blog post on rustic weddings for more tips and tricks on how to style your big day. You can make the day as big or small as you’d like with this venue option, whether you choose to have just immediate friends and family or a bigger blowout bash - a rustic barn wedding is a stunning (dare we say, perfect?!) option for your nuptials.
This one’s for the adventurous types, the nomads, and the nature enthusiasts - a truly “down to earth” wedding option. Whether in a national park, atop a mountain, or deep in a local wooded area - we love the idea of tying-the-knot surrounded by trees! There’s just something so whimsical and romantic about this option that we can’t help but be smitten with. Take a cue from Lillian and Jared’s forest wedding and keep it minimal with just a few special touches that make it unique to you - like a custom wedding arbor or an “aisle” made up of candle-light. An optimal, budget-friendly wedding idea for those that want to elope or host a micro-wedding (a good option in the “socially distant” era!) and zero in on what matters most - committing to forever with your one-and-only
“Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah; On a blanket with my baby is where I'll be” (The Drifters) -- there’s a reason that so many love songs are set at the beach - because there are so much romance and mystery about the sea! Imagine holding hands with your betrothed beside the sounds of lapping waves against the shore as you swear your life to one another!? *SWOON* Lakeside nuptials have that oh-so-cool and laid back vibe that’s sure to have your guests feeling the love! Take Kayla and Jacob’s lake wedding for example. Set on her Grandfather lake (brimming with the sentiment) they had a sleek and subtle nautical vibe with hues of blush, maroon, and navy. Simple and stunning, this locale is another great option for either a more intimate affair or a larger scale soiree - let the waves of love guide you!
For something simpler and even more paired-back, why not try dressing up your very own backyard for an intimate affair with your closest friends and family? You don’t need to break the bank when committing to your sweetheart. This budget-friendly option will offer you tons of opportunities for sweet, special touches that are unique to YOU! Think backyard BBQ vibes: patio lanterns, finger-foods, photobooth, and maybe even some backyard games (croquet anyone!?) With this option you can really have fun with your dress choice and try something a little more alternative - perhaps even some color - like our cap sleeve lace wedding dress in either blush or champagne
For the city-dwellers, take a hint from Carrie and Big (a la Sex and the City) and elope at your local city or town hall! There’s something incredibly romantic about a shotgun-wedding, it screams of passion, just pick a date with your beloved, your favorite Blush dress, and off you go! No muss, no fuss - just L-O-V-E! Check out our City Hall Photo-Shoot post for some serious inspiration - it’s sure to give you some
Whatever venue you choose to take your vows in - whether earth, air, land, or water - be sure to bring us with you! We’d love to hear about it and see photos of
