Want a fairy-tale version of a special wedding day all your own?
If you’re bold and different, you may want to go with a boho-inspired wedding theme. It’s a laid-back, relaxed style that can be as feminine or as bold as you want to go, as boho is anything but boring.
Need a little inspiration on how to go about it all? Here are a handful of ideas to create a boho-inspired wedding of your own.
Say it with Color
What’s a boho wedding without color? Whether you go with pinks and purples, pops of peach and orange, or shades of yellow and teal, all of these work and then some. Pick a color you find exciting, then choose complementary hues to accompany it.
Additionally, know that boho speaks to the unexpected. Knowing this, sneak your favorite colors into fun, different places from the bridal party’s shoes and the groom’s socks to the patterns on his tie or the flowers in your hair. Use those same colors in the floral arrangements and for the rest of your wedding décor.
Set the Scene
The first time guests get a glimpse at your wedding theme is with the invitation. So make sure your wedding invitations not only reflect your vision but also give invited guests a hint at the fun and festive celebration to come.
Choose from designs from indie artists and custom styling to perfectly fit your theme. Switch around colors, add foil to text, and find matching accessories for a look that’s all your own.
Top Those Tables
With it comes to decorating the tables, eclectic is the name of the game. Incorporate delight with mismatched glassware in your wedding colors and whimsical seating for the bridal party. Wood tables and chairs add rustic charm in the form of comfortable surfaces and seating for guests.
Dress up every table with burlap or lace table runners. Then, macramé all the things by using macramé as area dividers, backdrops or chair backs. Tie-dyed napkins or vegan-leather accents also blend well with a boho theme.
Stick with Simple
You don’t have to get fancy-schmancy here (read: expensive). Think field flowers, garden roses or farmer’s markets. Boho florals are a blend between rustic and free-spirited, so let your flower selection mimic the same.
Carry the flower theme into your hairstyle, but go beyond the flower crown. Weave a small floral arrangement into an updo or half-updo. Offset floral centerpieces with feathers or antlers, gemstones or geodes.
Take it Outside
A boho theme was made to celebrate you and your love of nature. Reflect that love with a ceremony and reception in your favorite outdoor space. The complementary venues for this theme are almost endless.
Consider a field filled with wildflowers or the Victorian gazebo in a town park as the site for your ceremony. The woods, a great old barn repurposed to an event hall or your own backyard might just be the perfect setting. With the right styling, any location can be “the one.”
Say ‘Yes’ to a Bold Dress
An off-the-shoulder Victorian-inspired sheath gown? A lace crop top and matching flowing long skirt? Boho’s effortless style embraces all the textures and layers you can throw at it.
Brides can go bold with bright patterns and prints or relaxed and dreamy in a chiffon, silk, satin or organza wedding dress. Men can skip the heavy basic black tux. A gray suit without the jacket is the perfect start. Add in prints in the form of a bow tie, pocket square or suspenders.
Something Old, Something New
From punchy colors to exuberant styling, this hippie-chic wedding look is all about fun. Simple or sophisticated, it’s easy to glam it up or tone it down. Find a venue to mimic your vision and then add in all the vintage, modern and ethereal elements your wedding-planning heart desires.
