How Boho Can You Go!
Boho weddings are big business. It seems as though every venue and décor specialist is pushing the free-spirited ‘shabby-chic’ look; but what really makes a true boho big day?
A classic boho wedding appeals to relaxed couples who are looking for an informal celebration that really showcases nature. A typical boho celebration would be held outdoors, or at least semi-outdoors, in a woodland, farm or beach setting.
If this is the style for you, check out our top tips to help you become the ultimate boho bride…
Think natural and unstructured with a real nod to hippy times. Your dress should be made with natural materials and lace always features heavily for the boho bride. Designed for dreamers and brides with a true gypsy soul these dresses are often feature intricate design but are easy to move around in and fit with the natural surroundings.
Flowing locks topped with a sweet smelling floral crown are also a big feature for any self-respecting boho bride!
EDITOR’S CHOICE: We love Aussie designer Anna Campbell. Available at www.jeanjacksoncouture.com in Manchester this dreamy collection is perfect for the super-stylish boho bride.
Casual but cool, grooms need to channel their own personalities into a dapper, relaxed style that really compliments their bride. Forget formal, we are talking coloured suits, waistcoats and bow ties with plenty of swagger.
It’s all about the feast at a boho wedding. Think delicious street food or picnic style treats served beneath swaying festoon lighting. Our boho couples stay away from the traditional 3 course wedding breakfast opting for far flung flavours and edgy woodland inspired grub to feed their guests. Sharing food, street food vans and full on hog roasts can all fit the bill – just make sure its plentiful, tasty and fits the overall theme perfectly.
Multitudes of flora, oversized, unstructured bouquets and tonnes of natural foliage will set the tone perfectly. Lots of boho couples opt for cute DIY elements too so think personalised favours, hand-painted signs and piles of old jam-jars stuffed with seasonal blooms and you will get the idea.
Props can also play a big part and you can hire just about anything from a stack of old fruit crates to wicker baskets, hay bales and just about everything in between.
There are some superb boho décor specialists and we particularly love the beautiful rustic, shabby-chic style from the talented team at Sweet Pea and Ivy. Loving your work girls!
