Elevate Your Wedding Look – Our Guide To Accessorising
It’s been said that what you wear on your special day plays the most important role in planning an event that resonates and represents you. Needless to say that choosing the ‘right’ gown and accessories means more than looking a certain way, it’s about how it makes you feel as well.
‘Minimal’ has become synonymous with what people generally think ‘modern’ is,
“Breathing new life into something old” is how our Creative Director and Founder, Shannon Pittman, described what she thinks it means to be modern, “It’s about appreciating and elevating your look.”
Minimalism goes beyond the glamorous and visual ‘less is more’ aesthetic, with a shift being made for environmental impact as well as mental clarity. Read on to find out why our gowns fit this particular bill!
Our heirloom creations epitomise slow luxury through traditional techniques used by our dedicated team of artisans, in our quiet Atelier in India. Bo & Luca gowns embrace the meaning of uncomplicated styling and easy elegance, and create a medium for brides everywhere to simply be and feel most like themselves. Each piece is hand-beaded and made to embody our brides’ free spirits.
The way we see it, there is no better or more conscious investment than the one that is forever. An heirloom, couture gown is not something that would come and go, it’s a signature and cherished style that gets carried throughout generations to come. Not to further mention that the age-old technique (skills passed down) that is used, produces intricate and higher quality garments.
This is inclusive of accessories such as jewellery, capes, jackets, head pieces and veils, which we’d recommend to any bride wanting to add even more of a personal touch to her wedding day look. Remember to wear your bridal look in your own way and make sure it resonates with you, and accentuates your best physical (and personal) traits!
If you’re planning on wearing a simple slip, why not accessorise it differently for that hint of Bohemian romance? The added bonus is that you can style these pieces with everyday looks as well as for special occasions after your special day.
So, minimal with a unique twist? Here are some examples of how we’d put a spin on your wedding look:
OUR MIA GOWN & STELLA CROWN
The subtle square neckline and fit and flare silhouette of our MIA gown would be elegantly accompanied by our STELLA crown, for a more dramatic effect. This headpiece would make for an added unforgettable statement, with its intricate crystals and semi-precious stones that are handwoven onto the wire. This stellar* piece is one of our best-sellers, and is available in Antique Gold, Silver Crystal, and Off-White!
OUR GRETA GOWN & BEAU EARRINGS
Featuring freshwater baroque pearls, our BEAU earrings are handset in 24k rolled gold but also available in silver casings. Their natural and handcrafted form compliments and elevates gowns effortlessly. This pairing, with our sophisticated slip style GRETA gown, creates a daring but delicate aesthetic that we cannot get enough of.
OUR ROSE GOWN & CALLIE EARRINGS
With her flouncy sleeves and vintage style, the ROSE gown from our Civil Ceremony Collection would be perfectly matched with the effervescent and chandelier sway of our CALLIE earrings! Featuring complimentary white crystals and freshwater pearls, this pair makes for a beautifully modest, modern, and elegant look!
OUR ESME GOWN & AUBREY CAPE
Our most-loved AUBREY cape’s floor-length and lightweight chiffon would pay a greatly deserved tribute to the ESME gown’s silky and flattering shape. With her other worldly hand-beaded details, this cape is designed to adorn your look with a whimsical air and will add the perfect touch of enchantment to any wedding gown.
OUR LOU GOWN & JULIA EARRINGS
Sophistication at its finest! Our LOU gown’s loose leaf White tea, hand-dyed fabric creates a dreamy ivory hue that is perfectly coupled with the subtle blue tinge of our JULIA earring’s Opalite stones, along with white Agate ones.
The femininity of this gown’s Blouson bodice and sheer sleeves feature an intricately hand-beaded waistband and cuffs, is perfectly matched with these statement earrings.
Even though we do offer minimal designs, we are still obsessed with the craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into each of our pieces.
We hold this aspect close to our hearts, and the essence of Bo & Luca gowns and accessories, lies in a spontaneity that embraces Bohemian romance. We’re here to help guide you in translating your unique beauty through our hand-beaded treasures!
