Native American Style
Back in September, Wedding Nouveau did a feature on Maori customs and couture, a Polynesian Pursuit. Today’s couture board is no different. From Vintage Goddess looks and bohemian flirt, to haute Cherokee Glam…there’s tons of Native American-inspired couture for the bride who wants to connect to her Indian roots.
Inspiration: From Pocahontas, to Poca-HOTNESS!

I would be doing a huge disservice to Native American culture, if I even attempted to reduce it to one thing. Instead, here are a few sites that I think offer a comprehensive breakdown of some really cool and symbolic Native American wedding customs. Take your pick.
