Native American Style

By  |  3 Comments

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!

Wedding Tradition Ideas:

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.

    My favorites, 1, 7, 12. There is an interesting exhibit going on at the Native American Museum on the National Mall in DC. http://www.theroot.com/views/maybe-your-great-grandmother-really-was-cherokee
    The exhibit traces the contact between African-Americans and Native Americans from the 1500s to the present. I’m going to check it out.
