Carefree and free-spirited, chic yet classic. If these things describe your style as a soon-to-be bride, you might want to consider choosing a boho theme for your upcoming nuptials. Bohemian weddings are a unique blend of gypsy and nomadic elements, with a subtle hint of romanticism. Inspired by the outdoors and the mysticism of nature, your boho-chic wedding will be one for the ages.
Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered. Explore these 12 fun and creative ways to throw a Bohemian wedding you’ll never forget.
1. Pick an outdoor locale
Nothing says boho like an outdoor wedding. Inspire your guests with charming scenery as they roam through open fields and flowery meadows.
2. Choose a casual wedding gown
Opt for a flowy and casual wedding gown with a comfortable silhouette, put together with elegant cuts and romantic details (such as white lace trim).
3. Rock a pair of barefoot sandals
If you’re thinking of having a beach wedding, consider wearing barefoot sandals. Simple details such as rhinestones and crocheted lace will dress up your feet, and perfectly complement your overall look.
4. Go floral
Don’t let anyone talk you out of the flower crown trend. Whether you go for a full floral crown or add tiny sprigs of dainty baby’s breath to your hair, you’ll look fabulous.
5. Look flawless in a gypsy hairpiece
If you’re not so keen on flower crowns, why not try a gypsy hairpiece instead? Hair chains, fine pins, or gilded halos are all great accessories that will complement any hairdo.
6. Pick a wildflower bouquet
Picture a bouquet that would normally only be found thriving in the midst of nature — pure and untouched. Add extra details such as feathers and branches for that wild and organic look.
7. Select a feather boutonniere
As for the groom, a leaf or feather boutonniere is the perfect way to add just the right amount of color to his suit.
8. Make sure your reception has open spaces
Ditch regular wooden chairs and opt for a more creative aesthetic. Rustic couches, patterned rugs, and big cushions placed around the locale will encourage guests to wander around and engage in new conversations.
9. Opt for eclectic table settings
Mix and match the plateware at your wedding table for a more whimsical vibe. Dress up your table tops with thickly knitted cloths.
10. Get married under a lush ceremony marker
Tie the knot under a circled arch made from luscious greenery. As for seating, tree stumps or hay bale chairs will create a unique and picturesque arrangement.
11. Give away eco-friendly wedding favors
Celebrate your love for mother earth by giving away favors that aren’t both pretty to look at and but are also environmentally-friendly. Tiny succulents, flower seeds, or small jars of artisanal honey are all great options.
12. Decorate the reception with indie ornaments
Nothing is more bohemian than an array of indie inspired macrame curtain backdrops, vintage mirrors, or dangling dream-catchers decorating your venue. Don’t be afraid to mix in some rustic or vintage themed elements for a more eclectic vibe.
