So it's the D-day, you've made all the preparations. Now enjoy it.
Or maybe you're still planning in your head. So how do you create the quintessential Boho Wedding?
First of all what is bohemian? It means something unconventional, artistic, non-conformist, free spirited, naturalist and just plain, gypsy.
What about bohemian wedding? I suppose that would mean something different for us.
Marriage should be a once in a lifetime experience. Or at most two or three times in a lifetime.
So plan your wedding well. First of all, choose the right season. The classic wedding season is summer. Bohemian style is no exception. For the simple reason that boho usually focuses on nature. Late spring or early autumn can also be suitable.
As we already know, the classic boho wedding takes place outdoors. As close to Mother Nature as possible.
Better. It can be a seaside, a lake, a forest, a park or a farm.
If it rains, in autumn or spring, you can always hold your reception indoors.
In this case, the décor should include more natural outdoor elements.
String light bulbs or candles, white tents, wooden elements, arches and plenty of natural materials. These can be flowers, especially white ones, hanging installations, leaves, branches, small trees in pots - huge amounts of greenery.
Small trees in pots - large amounts of greenery. It doesn't always depend on the budget, you can do a lot with creativity.
The more natural and effortless everything looks, the better.
If it's an indoor reception, don't forget to bring the outside in.
The bride's bouquets should look natural, as should the entire décor. The dominant color should be white, oversized structures, fluctuating bouquets with small flowers.
Don't avoid flowers in your hair, barrettes with flowers or even floral crowns.
Be creative and do it yourself!
Since the whole concept is very naturalistic, DIY elements fit well into the decor of a bohemian wedding.
The result will always be successful and the guests will feel your love and attention. These elements can be garden flowers arranged by the couple (this does not mean that all the decoration has to be done by the couple, but only
by the couple, but only a few elements) invitations or name cards made by the bride and groom themselves, with a drawing or computer graphics.
If you want to be the center of attention in every photo, the bohemian style is not for you. The bohemian style emphasizes the natural elements. You will be photographed as part of nature, not as the centrepiece.
But the photos will look like a work of art with idyllic locations, natural daylight,
radiating the atmosphere of nature around you.
So make sure you book the right photographer. Check their profile. They should be passionate of nature and outdoors photography.
Bohemian weddings are about relaxing and feeling the connection with Mother Nature. Brides usually wear long, lacy, embroidered, hippie-style white dresses.
For the bride and groom, it's more practical. They rarely dress formally, rather casually but chic - a shirt with a bow tie, or a coloured suit.
Often the couple includes floral elements in their attire. The bride will wear a floral crown or include flowers in her bridal hairstyle.
Make it a real ceremony. People usually stress about their wedding. The bohemian concept is about being in nature, having fun with the people you love and celebrating together the most natural union of two people.
