A boho themed wedding is perfect for the free-spirited couple. But what exactly is boho? Boho is not just a fashion trend but also a lifestyle that has been around for a long time. Associated with hippies and artistic sorts, boho has a vintage carefree feel. Just think colour palettes of soft neutral earthy tones like aged copper and muted gold, mixed with a splash of sunny apricot and orange for warmth.
Boho is a great theme for an outdoor wedding, so if you are getting married in a garden or woodland this could be the perfect wedding theme to go with for your wedding. Here are a few ideas to inspire you on how to create a magical bohemian style wedding.
Boho style bridal gowns are chic with light flowy fabrics with delicate lace detailing. Hair left loose and tousled with a beautiful flower crown gives a romantic fairy-tale feel. Bridal jewellery should be simple: cute hair pins, delicate necklaces and bracelets. For a boho bride, an ankle bracelet would not look out of place.
For the groom, dashing tweed is a popular choice, with good reason. Wedding Venues says, “A great suit is the most important part of any groom’s wedding day look and, with a boho theme, you’ve got a whole lot of choice. Once you’ve got your suit sorted, you can add in the right shirt and the perfect pair of shoes to bring your style to life. Tweed is a popular choice for boho grooms and their wedding suits and it’s easy to see why. It has a really relaxed vibe and there are loads of options for you when it comes to colours. However, if you’re getting married in summer, there’s nothing to stop you rocking linen if that’s what you prefer. In winter, richer fabrics in lush jewel tones are a good call.”
For your venue, go for a vintage natural look, hang rustic wooden sign posting, pretty wind chimes, ribbons, and flowers. Also decorate tables with layers of cotton and linen finished off with taper candles, natural branches, feathers, and pampas grass – this will give you’re your venue a whimsical romantic feel.
Wedding favours with a bohemian flare could include scented tealights, flower seeds, hand soap, or loose-leaf tea. You could make your own favours such friendship bracelets or mini dream catchers. You can buy crafting items cheaply online, and it will save you a fortune by making wedding favours yourself, giving you more money to splash out elsewhere.
Your boho inspired entertainment could be as simple as someone playing an acoustic guitar or a band that plays a mix of contemporary and classic music. It will get everyone up singing along and dancing, you could literally have your own little festival at you wedding reception.
