Boho weddings are refreshing as it gives off a vibe of effortless elegance. This kind of wedding does away with the uptight and reserved feel of black-tie formals. Flowy dresses in soft fabric replace the little black (or white) dresses. Rustic wood, greens, and vintage pieces are used for décor and table centerpieces. Low key opulence comes from highlights of jewel tones and metallic elements.
Weddings in boho style are usually held outdoors in expansive greens and against scenic landscape backgrounds. Wooden textures come from the surrounding trees and are added to the venue with pergolas and garden furniture. Flowers are ever-present in boho décor and in the wedding entourage’s dresses and accessories. Dresses are made of soft gauzy fabric that romantically billows in the wind.
Indoor boho weddings are possible too. You just have to bring the outdoors inside. Think of indoor gardens or perhaps try to recreate the outdoors in your indoor space. There are potted greens that you can arrange together to give you the landscape that you want in the background. On the tables, you can put crystals and stones as décor. You can have a tablescape of floral arrangements of flowers in soft pastel colors or succulents clustered together in ceramic plates or rattan baskets. You can also use vases and macrame plant containers with gold or metallic detail.
Complement your boho color palette with scents to make your event a multi-sensory experience. Scented candles, aromatherapy lamps, and incense sticks are some of those you can use to enhance the boho ambiance. Go for a combination of floral and woodsy scent that gives off a mystical feel.
One other great thing about this theme is that not everything needs to match. The various elements of your design should complement each other – remember, though, that you can also go overboard with all the mismatched elements and you’ll end up with a messy jumble of elements. Mix and match the various elements and tie them all up with a single unifying element.
