It’s no surprise that the boho wedding trend is rocketing in popularity and it’s super easy to recreate this chic wedding style too!
Bohemian, commonly known as boho, can trace its roots right back to 18th century Europe. Originally associated with romani gypsies and French artists, throughout the decades the idea has remained the same, unconformity. There are many adaptations of boho but however it’s translated this iconic style remains effortless with little margin for error.
When exploring boho, we tried to underpin the ultimate image. Loose hair, patterned tunic dresses and miss-matched accessories (think the Olsen sisters, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller) and it’s the same for venue décor too. Think free-flowing fabrics, oriental elements, untraditional patterns and ethnic styles.
For a boho themed ceremony you don’t need to go all out and wed barefoot in the woods! Bring the outside in by working woodland and foliage into your centrepieces. Wild flowers are the obvious choice here but think about combining with more traditional floral options too. Speak to your florist and consider the shape of your arrangements, this is just as important as the flower choices. Opt for loosely tied bouquets and arrangements in a variety of shapes and sizes. Hoop bouquets are a stylist alternative for your bridesmaids to add boho flair, or go flat out unique and create a bridal version.
Mix and match your table items for an interesting tablescape. An Aztec runner with gold votives and vintage goblets is the perfect accompaniment to wildly arranged flowers of many varieties. Don’t be too quick to hide any charming trestle tables under piles of over-starched hotel linens. Go back to basics and make the most of any character items at your disposal. Say no to banqueting chairs covered up with white chair covers and hire chairs instead. Opt for natural crossback, fold up or bistro chairs and leave rustic or decorate with macramé.
