Get the Look: Australian Wedding Style

This post is in partnership with Aisle Society, a new tool for wedding planning that I helped found and create to help couples plan their wedding and connect with talented professionals!

Move over Europe – Australia has become the new center of wedding cool, and Aisle Society has fallen head over heels for their effortlessly chic style! Think: sentimental, curated details, glam gowns and décor in rustic or industrial locations, and a touch of the casual or bohemian. We love destination wedding inspiration, so today our editors are sharing 10 ways to steal Australian wedding style and bring a touch of the land Down Under to your big day!

RUSTIC LUXE DECOR

One of the things we love about Australian weddings is the way that luxurious details are combined with rustic settings, like sparkling chandeliers in a barn or tipi. The key is the juxtaposition of textures and styles, which creates such an eye catching combination!

BOHO ELEMENTS

Australian wedding style is boho done right! Styling appears effortless but is carefully thought out, like mix and match chairs or table decor, macrame backdrops, colorful carpets, and beautiful bohemian bridal headpieces!

OUTDOOR CELEBRATIONS

With the weather as good as it is in Australia, no wonder couples take advantage! Outdoor ceremonies and receptions are common, whether the wedding itself is formal or more relaxed, and whether it takes place in a vineyard, on a beach, or in a backyard!

GLAMOROUS GOWNS

Australian bridal designers are having a moment on the international stage right now – brides all over the world are choosing Australian wedding dress designers like Anna Campbell, Jennifer Gifford, Grace Loves Lace, Pallas Couture, Steven Khalil, and Karen Willis Holmes!

CASUAL ELEGANT BRIDAL STYLING

The gowns may be glam, but Australian brides know how to do casual chic perfectly! From beautiful braids to perfect ponytails, to long, loose beachy waves, the bride’s personal styling is just as effortlessly elegant as the rest of the wedding!

PERFECTLY MISMATCHED BRIDESMAIDS

Mismatched bridesmaids are a look we love, and one you’ll often see in Australian weddings (particularly lineups of mixed white dresses). It really lets each bridesmaid show off their individual style, while still complementing the overall look!

UNEXPECTED VENUES

As well as having venues that show off the dramatic natural beauty of the Australian landscape, We’re loving how Aussie couples often choose unusual and creative locations for their weddings. We’ve seen everything from museums, garden cafés and rooftops, to warehouses, substations, air hangars, furniture workshops, and even a side street!

NATIVE FLORALS

Australian brides love to include native Australian flowers in their bouquets and floral arrangements, and they are stunning! I love the loose arrangements, which often include proteas, flannel flowers, wax, eucalyptus, banksias, leucadendrons, and waratahs, among others.

GREENERY INSTALLATIONS

Similar to the loose, wild bouquets, Australian receptions often feature stunning greenery or floral installations that really bring nature indoors!

NEON SIGNS

Neon signs are a huge trend in Australia right now, having really taken off last year! They look amazing up against a plain backdrop like a greenery wall, wood, or a barn or factory wall!
