Well Darling... I am super excited to share with you some of the hottest wedding design looks that have inspired me recently! But first let me introduce myself, I have been one of the managing partners at Ginger&Lime, Event Design & Floristry since we first began the business back 2013! Over the years I have seen many amazing wedding looks and better still, had the opportunity to work closely with my amazing clients in designing looks and creating their Flowers & Event Designs. 

In seeing an increase in Boho designs across fashion and interior designs over the past 12 months, some influence has certainly been stricken from one special lady. Frida Kahlo has inspired yet another generation with her surrealism artworks, although her workings are bizarre and leaning towards a dark self awareness of herself, The use of bright bold colors, statement floral pieces and use of tropical foliages strikes an image of complete freedom in design and also a sense of relaxed design influence. Portraying an important image of Mexican Culture and Tradition is something that has influenced current design looks, I am certainly all for Latin influence.  

In taking the BOHO concept and turning this into a "Look" or especially a "Wedding Look" isn't as difficult as one would think! I'm Talking bright and colorful florals, with the use of textures gained from items such as: Amaranths, Orange Protea & Palm Leaves Galore! Something I have gotten excited about in design is the ever emerging Aztec Fabrics available on the market just now, bright colorful and the perfect choice to add depth to your look. "Viva Mexico" is certainly something that your guests would not forget in a hurry! 

Recently I had the pleasure of creating a Frida Mexican inspired floral display and the response was fantastic from the clients who attended The Wedding Collective, Woodside Warehouse (Image Below).
