Try Before You Buy

Instead of dealing with the journey to a wedding dress boutique and the tireless task of trying on a million dresses, shop online! It will save you both time and effort, so you can focus on planning your wedding day. When brides order from Bohyne, they can get a virtual consultation and try on styles via mail order before committing to a single dress. The sustainable wedding dress vendor sources materials from unused or over-purchased stock, which helps to reduce existing industry waste and save yards of beautiful fabric from landfills.

DIY Your Wedding

Why not make a fun project out of your wedding by DIY-ing your decorations? It will give you and your fiancé a bonding activity to get you excited leading up to the wedding. Not to mention, you’ll save on your budget and reduce the necessary production waste that comes from a third-party wedding decorator.

If DIY crafts aren’t your strong suit, not to worry. You can get help from Parties Under the Palms, a boho minimalist event company that caters to small, outside events – your wedding, included! Keep it simple with a gorgeous outdoor picnic reception your guests will love.
