How to Organize a ‘Boho Chic’ Wedding
The boho chic style is gaining more and more popularity around the world, and more ladies are going for it not only for designing and perfecting their everyday looks, but for important occasions, too. It’s even becoming a trend for weddings. This is, of course, something ultra-creative and cool to imagine, and knowing the basic style tips and tricks will only help perfect the results. So, here we present the main things you need to take into account when organizing a boho chic wedding.
Looking Back at the History of Boho Chic
Boho chic acquired its name (Bohemian) from the name of the historical Bohemia located in central Europe, now being in the territory of Czech Republic. Boho chic comes from the ‘bohémiens’, the gypsies having lived in that territory. In fact, if we look closer at the descriptive details of this style, we will find the specific characteristic features of the gypsy culture, coming as weightless fabrics, floral details, embroidery, ethnic vibes, etc.
Boho chic is also close to nature and embodies human freedom and artistic nature. Thus, coming back to the wedding plans, if you have decided to make your event a boho-inspired occasion, then the best place for the party is somewhere where you can organize the ceremony in the open air.
The Key Details of a Boho Chic Wedding
• The first most significant detail is the presence of natural materials and fabrics, including silk, chiffon, and linen with designs in lace, embroidery, and fringes.
• The abundance of colors, especially natural shades.
• Lightness reflected in the garments matched with an abundance of accessories like beads and jewels, rhinestones, brooches, and hand-made bracelets.
• Handmade accessories and pieces are given special attention.
• Finally, the bride must be dressed up in boho style.
The Wedding Dress Inspired by Boho Chic
The image of the bride inspired by boho chic should be like the embodiment of femininity, elegance, grace, and romance. For a wedding dress of this kind details like weightless layers of fabric, ethnic and floral patterns, lace and net-like elements and sheer textures are mostly characteristic. Floral hair decorations mixed with various types of bijou and jewelry are also included in the list. Go for sweet tones like beige, cream, and soft pink.
The bride’s hairstyle should be as close to natural looks and should create a slightly effortless and messy impression with free locks, braids, or messily accented variations.
The Groom’s Outfit Inspired by Boho Chic
As for the groom, a cute waistcoat adorned with checkered patterns and a shirt of a lighter tone may be a great option. It’s necessary to have a small blossom of the same flowers that are used for the bride’s hair accessory or the bouquet fixed somewhere on the waistcoat. The strict classic tuxes are a big ‘no’ here. Just the contrary! The groom can even go so far with his effortless look that he can even have his sleeves cuffed along with the lower parts of the pants.
The Dresses of the Bridesmaids Inspired by Boho Chic
Coming to the dresses of the bridesmaids, we should mention the necessity to avoid wearing similar dresses, thus always trying to create one special detail that will make each dress different from the rest, or picking totally different dresses with a single catchy detail in common.

Handmade details should again be given the priority, especially when having created unique and cool things with not too sumptuous materials. As we noted previously, it’s also important to be as close to the nature as possible. Thus, you may also opt for some creative and cool solutions in terms of choosing the place and arranging the tables and the seats. For instance, you can choose some wooden and vintage tables and chairs, which will be effective and beautiful.
Another thing that’s special about boho chic is that you don’t need to worry about the compatibility of the brightest shades, simply because they are not actually meant to be combined with each other! In addition, you can also use rugs, fur details, feathers and anything else that will have the ethnic feel about it, including napkins, tablecloths, furniture covers, which may all be made of the specific patchwork technique. You can even opt for old furniture and mixes of details from different decades to create the retro-vintage cool effect.
Going for wild flowers will enhance the natural feel even more. This is the key of boho chic style wedding: creating the most natural and cool combinations and looks using the most luxurious materials, and creating unique works of art based on moderately cheap and affordable means.
So shine with your creativity and gorgeous looks and be the boho star of the show!
