A Hippy Chic Garden Wedding Inspired by Fab Floral Bridesmaids Dresses

Hippy Arkansas Wedding

Flowers are never a bad idea and when you cover your girls in head-to-toe floral prints, it just amps up the pretty! When Grace + Dillon began planning their boho wedding at The Barn at Lost Creek, they knew they wanted it to have a fun, festival atmosphere that would bring the party to their guests. Anne-Claire Allen, the couple’s event designer, wowed as she took inspiration from the bride’s beloved floral bridesmaids dresses and created a flower-filled wonderland for this outdoor wedding. All of the girls rocked dainty flower crowns, the paper goods featured delicate floral and herb patterns, and a stunning floral entrance welcomed guests to the reception!

G shared more with us about how her inspiration came from the bridesmaids dresses:

When we initially talked about what we wanted for our wedding, we agreed that what was most important was that it was a fun event with all our closest friends and family. I decided on my bridesmaid dresses before anything else related to the wedding. They were definitely a major inspiration for the entire wedding!

Laurken Kendall Photo was there to capture every dainty detail. Scroll along with us and let’s have a look!

Inmaculada Garcia Dress

G’s Inmaculada Garcia gown is perfect for floating and frolicking through a meadow. We love the tiered tulle and lace skirt! Here’s what she shared about the search for the perfect wedding dress:

My mom, sister and I were planning our annual girls trip shortly after we got engaged, so we decided to go to nyc to look for my dress and to the Hamptons to go to the LoveShackFancy flagship store! It was such a fun trip. I ended up finding my dress at the last of 6 appointments in nyc at Veka Bridal in Brooklyn, the cutest boutique with a small selection of dresses. It was also the last dress I tried on!

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

I wouldn’t have been able to do it without a planner. Mine (Anne Claire Allen Owens) was especially amazing, but I can’t imagine the stress without a planner in general! Also, someone had told me before I started planning that the photographer really sets the tone for the day, and I couldn’t agree more. Having Laurken as our photographer was the best decision I made—Not only did our pictures turn out better than I could have imagined, but she made both Dillon and me feel so comfortable and able to really enjoy the day.
