Bohemian Meaning

The word Bohemian means free spirited and carefree. For couples who want to be artistic they can experiment by mixing materials, metals, wood and ideas that are not traditional or follow the “Norm”.

There is no correct style or order just freedom and a laid-back relaxed atmosphere. No two Boho weddings are the same but this allows couples to have their own unique big day. It is not about everything co-ordinating perfectly but more because of the use of “collected décor “vintage, assorted objects of different sizes, textures and colour palettes.

Planning a Boho Wedding

A boho wedding is a non-traditional, adventurous style but certainly gives you a memorable wedding day to remember.

Boho weddings have become so popular over the last few years, couples seek natural weddings creating an informal, relaxed surround without all the formal elements.

Boho Inspiration & Tips

What is your inspiration for a Boho wedding, is it flowing dresses and floral crowns in a garden setting? Or a barn with wooden seating and backdrops?

Dress for the theme, lace, flowy gowns and organza for the bride. The groom may like an unconventional linen suit. Mis-matched bridesmaids dresses and colours to compliment the styling.

Natural makeup look is the best from your MUA, A touch of lip gloss, great base coverage and some pink tones for your cheeks and you’re ready for your big day! Loose locks, braids or a simple hair accessory from your hair stylist.

Decorations from mix and match tableware, wooden log guest’s books, bold bright centre pieces or a wooden arch with soft drapes and hanging succulents…. the creative aspect is off the scale and individual to each couples preferences.

A relaxing comfortable seating area with soft cushions and pillows to allow guests to relax and unwind because it helps them reflect on the ceremony and memories of the day. Maybe bales of hay and soft rugs in a tepee with lanterns and windchimes.
