Global Holiday Inspiration Ideas

By  |  2 Comments

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate this holiday, and happy Fri-Style Friday.

I’ve recently become completely enamored by all the holiday decorations and ideas out there in print and on the web.  For the worldly bride and style savvy dresser who’s not afraid to go bold, here are some fun ways to let the colors of holiday decor inspire your look (and vice versa)…because inspiration comes in all colors.

Wedding Tradition Idea – Albanian/Serbian/Kosova.

As you know, I’m always on the hunt for new ideas for wedding practices around the globe.  I recently found a practice that’s ripe with so many possibilities.  In eastern Europe, Kosovar Bosnian brides will sometimes get their faces elaborately painted (see image above), in very intricate and beautiful designs.  This tradition is done on the bride’s wedding day to ward off bad luck from her pending marriage.  (Source).
