Planning A Bohemian Wedding Reception

The essence of a bohemian wedding is based on free-flowing fabrics, earthy elements, and romantic florals.

Here are some tips to help you plan a bohemian wedding theme.

The Wedding Dress

Whimsical and enchantingly beautiful! Find a dress that is flowy, light, and comfortable to wear. Don’t be scared to showcase those shoulders.

The Hair

While not all brides want to wear their hair down, the braided look can be something to consider. Think messy and loose. A boho hairstyle can be worn up or down depending on your dress’s look.

Wedding Accessories

True to your boho theme, the accessories you choose for your wedding will have to be effortless and romantic. Look like a goddess with a bridal head chain worm within your hair. A flower crown or whimsical headband can also complete your look.

Boho Wedding Invitations

Soft watercolor designs are trendy—incorporate elements of nature and delicate fonts. Calligraphy is a perfect look for the bohemian look.

Wedding Venue 

You want your bohemian themed wedding to be relaxed, colorful, and romantic. An outdoor wedding venue for your ceremony and reception is the perfect setting for a boho wedding. Look into a venue that can offer you an outdoor garden either for the ceremony or reception.

Laid-Back Lounge

Consider adding natural furniture like a lounge with velvet sofas to your reception. Go for a rustic-chic vibe, wood tables, gold accents, birdcages, and greenery.

Table Centrepieces

Take your tablescapes to the next level by using wildflowers and plenty of candles. Let your table setting shout boho as you mix various colors. Make your wedding favors and place settings go with your boho theme. Fruit like pairs can make for a unique concept.
