A coachella themed wedding : the codes !
A chic and rock bohemian dress-code
Festival-goers who go to Coachella recognize themselves by their look. Their outfits are a mix of bohemian elements and rock pieces.
Lace, crochet clothes, perfecto, jeans, fringes, sequins, prints, neon lights, suspenders, bow ties, embroidery, transparent tulle, croc top, mules, sandals, long and flowing skirts… the bride and groom and guests dare to combine several fashion universes.
The watchword is natural and fluidity. Gone are the stuffy suits and corseted dresses, make way for linen chinos and supple shirts, boho-chic fluid or vintage white dresses.

For a coachella wedding, the bride styles her hair naturally. Loose hair, loose buns and braids are ideal wedding hairstyles for the coachella theme.
The coachella bride can also put accessories in her hair: headbands, headbands, pearls, feathers, flowers…
Colorful and glittery wedding makeup
The festive atmosphere of Coachella is brought as much by the animations as by the participants. If the spirits are at the party, the bodies too.
The make-up is very colorful : pink, yellow, green… the eyelids are adorned with bold, bright and fresh colours.
Sequins are also very present in coachella makeup, as well as skin jewelry. Worn around the eyes or on the forehead, they illuminate the face.
Centerpiece, bride’s hair, groom’s boutonniere, bridal bouquet, photobooth… flowers are ubiquitous at a coachella wedding.
Hanging garden, floral arch, XXL bouquet, flowery chandelier… seasonal flowers are staged as often as possible. But also pampas grasses, palms and the very trendy dried flowers.
The coachella wedding also happens a lot outdoors, so the flowers are also found there in their natural environment.
Multicolored garlands, balloons and confetti, disco balls, LED tape and lasers, paper lanterns… Coachella decor loves warm colors and light effects.
For the palette, we bet on terracotta, vegetable colors, azure…
The entrance of the bride and groom can be done under the colored smoke. A trash the dress is also feasible. Enough to also take memorable shots of the wedding ceremony.
An outdoor wedding
The Coachella festival takes place in the desert, not far from Los Angeles. Orchard, field, plain, beach, wood, … to celebrate a coachella wedding, an outdoor location, if possible isolated from neighbors, is perfect.
It can be used for a secular ceremony or to meet after the visit to the town hall and/or the church.

Barnums can be installed to protect its guests in case of showers, so that the rainy wedding starts, as the saying goes, as a happy marriage.
