Modern Wedding with Exotic Twist

When you see exotic, cross-cultural weddings, often the entire wedding is covered in head-to-toe jewel-tones of deep, vibrant colors with sparkling gold and flashy embellishments everywhere, down to the smallest details. It's definitely dramatic and gorgeous but some brides are looking for smaller doses of global glamour. This couple's wedding, photographed by talented international wedding photographer Punam Bean, was traditional in both the American and Indian sense. What I love about this is her paisley, Indian-inspired scarf thrown casually over her white wedding dress. Just a spot of color to make things more interesting. Whether it's the cooler months of the year or the cooler nights of summer, a scarf is the perfect accessory to keep those bare bridal shoulders comfortable and cozy.

This orange, boho, block print scarf from Thailand would be a gorgeous compliment to a vintage country wedding or a modern wedding with orange accents. You can see more of Punam's work here and my entire collection of exotic scarves from The Loaded Trunk here.
