Boho weddings are becoming increasingly popular among many young people who are struggling with the costs and stress of a more traditional wedding.
A Boho wedding is a less conventional affair with a relaxed and carefree atmosphere. Quirky and creative styling is adopted, resulting in a colourful blend of eras, styles and tastes.
Whether the setting is the beach, a pretty woodland, a festival style field or a cool and quirky venue under a teepee, they often have one thing in common.
Nature and being natural. The Boho wedding style can range from casual beach to romantic french countryside and includes quirky carnival, whimsical woodland and free-spirited festival. If you are planning to be a Boho bride, the chances are that you are looking for long, flowing material or quirky eclectic pieces to create an original outfit, like this Goose Island daisy adorned floaty top which looks perfect over a long, white maxi skirt.
One of the key looks for a Boho bride is the hair, it should scream effortless and carefree. Think pretty messed up waves, loose plaits, fishtail braids and braided hair crowns. Forehead bands, flowers or whimsically embellished headpieces worn to the front of the head are super pretty too!
If you’re attending a Boho wedding, particularly if you haven’t been to one before, then it can be tricky to know what to wear. The chances are that you will need to avoid heels, particularly if the wedding is taking place in a field of grass, a forest opening or on a beach. A pair of linen trousers with a contrasting fuschia pink top or a simple sleeveless, brightly coloured dress with pretty sandals are ideal boho guest outfits, no matter where the wedding ceremony is taking place.
If you’re not the hippie, 60’s inspired kind of guest, don’t worry about it. If in doubt, go with something simple and clean like this flattering linen dress with comfortable and flattering accessories (including sunglass and a casual hat and a pair of wedges maybe as the wedding it very likely going to be held outdoors).
Layering is another great option, particularly as the weather in the UK can be so unpredictable. A pretty, pale kaftan style top can look stunning and smart yet comfortable too, covering up your arms so you don’t need a jacket.
