Mood Board Monday- Desert Boho

Summer is Gigil and Bloom’s busiest season for weddings, and there’s good reason for it. Who doesn’t dream of a warm and sunny big day, whether it be here at home, or a destination wedding? We love both, but this for this particular mood board we can’t stop day-dreaming about ‘Mediterranean vibe’ venues, with sun-soaked nuptials, and barefoot partying that carries on well into the warm, breezy night.

Hard to define, this kind of wedding is tropical, but rustic and boho, with a hint of beachy. We love trying new, fun ideas here, and the ‘Desert Boho’ kind of theme is definitely just that. Sun-bleached blooms, like palm leaves and pampas grass, can be used on moon arches, centerpieces, aisle decoration etc, and give your wedding the ultimate laid-back , cool girl vibes that we cannot get enough of!

“I got 99 problems but shopping independent ain't one”

At Gigil & Bloom we could not have all the fun and success that we do if it weren’t for the support of the fab customers and business owners in our local community. We love the tribe of independent business owners that have welcomed us with open arms since we opened, and wanted to share a handful of our favourites.
