If you are going to tie the knot shortly and you’re sort of a bride who’s wearing her mother’s wedding gown,is not about country clubs or big bands. You’re an earthy woman with an easy going nature who is happiest running barefoot through a field of wildflowers. Think woodland spirit, chic hippie, or nature lover, rather than traditional bride then this post is for you. We’ve got 20 beautiful Bohemian style wedding ideas for your wedding day.
Bohemian style wedding gowns
First the wedding gown. Look for something ethereal, romantic, and unstructured. Avoid structured bodices, ball skirts, and sequins at all costs. This bohemian wedding gown from Rue de Seine is ideal.
Flowing fabrics such as chiffon and English net are the essence of bohemian chic. Embellishments such as subtle embroidery, fabric flowers, and overlays are gorgeous for an ethereal bohemian bride. This Grace Loves Lace an empire waist gown with a minimal train is ideal.
Bohemian bridal hairstyles
If you’re the kind of bride who feels more comfortable in a laid back look, you could opt to just let your hair down. Nothing says relaxed and bohemian better than a perfectly blow-dried hair with a flower crown or flower ornaments to complete the look.

Letting your hair down, either in its natural state or incorporated with curls, allows for more flexibility especially during pictorials. Not only is it low maintenance, you could also easily create different looks instantly by sweep your hair over one side, or have it fall freely down your back. It also looks modern and will go perfectly a garden wedding or a whimsical-themed one.

A formal wedding cake may seem out of place at an earthy wedding. You might find that a selection of homemade wedding pies is a better dessert option, especially for a rustic wedding in the woods, photo by Marissa Maharaj Photography via seattlebridemag.com
Or rich chocolate frosted cake photographed by Jerome Cole photography rather than a traditional white one. Drag the frosting to give it a texture like tree bark. Fresh flowers make a nice decoration, or add a touch of whimsy, such as tiny marzipan mushrooms and ladybugs. They would make wonderful woodsy cake decorations, especially on a chocolate cake.

Boho wedding music
When it comes to music for a bohemian woodsy sort of wedding, Lester Lanin’s orchestra just will not strike the right note! Neither will a d.j. spinning the latest dance tunes, for that matter. More folksy, bluesy music will seem right at home in the woods, as would a harpist or a guitar player with a great singing voice. When you are a non-traditional bride, it gives you a lot of freedom to choose the things for your wedding that will make it feel very special and personal.

If your wedding will take place in the autumn, for example, branches of leaves would be a nice addition to the tabletops. There are many natural elements which would be pretty to suspend from trees, such as white paper lanterns, grapevine balls, and twinkling white lights, photo by Tec Petaja Photography via bashplease
