Planning the Perfect Boho Wedding

A boho wedding is the perfect blend of free-spirited charm and elegant artistry. It’s a fantastic theme for those who want to celebrate their love in a relaxed, whimsical atmosphere that’s often filled with natural beauty and rustic accents. To help bring your vision to life, take a look at our guide to boho-style weddings so that your day is a unique and unforgettable experience for everyone involved.

Boho Wedding Venues

With the right styling and attention, most wedding venues can be transformed into a boho celebration, but a truly great venue already has natural elements woven into it. For a real, authentic experience, an outdoor venue is ideal – time, weather and location permitting. The beauty of nature and the occasion of the day perfectly intertwine with the decor, and you can match the altar to the landscape. Ideally, you’d have nature providing the colour palette while having open and light-filled spaces. A sprawling meadow, forest, botanical garden or campground are all enchanting backdrops.

Picture this: Make it a true celebration by infusing your boho wedding with a festival theme. This could mean having teepees or yurts and adorning them with fairy lights, ethereal lanterns or dreamcatchers. By combining rugs, blankets and cushions – you could cultivate a freewheeling, convivial atmosphere for your guests to mingle and let loose.

Boho-Style Wedding Invitations

The first glimpse your guests will get of what you’re planning is in the invite, so it has to be on theme. These days, many people choose to send digital invites, but sending a traditional, hand-made invite is more personal and arguably more in line with the theme. Consider making them out of something unique like eco-friendly recycled paper or even fabric.

Picture this: Floral motifs, earthy tones, intricate hand-drawn illustrations or watercolour paints with calligraphy on recycled paper. This will give the perfect indication of your theme so guests can dress accordingly (although dress code is of course a key thing to specify in your invite).

Boho-Style Wedding Outfits

Embracing the boho style is all about effortless elegance and comfort. Think flowing silhouettes, delicate lace, intricate embroidery and a personalised flower crown for the bride. Popular choices are A-line and sheath dresses with ethereal fabrics like chiffon and tulle. Details like bows, sashes, bell sleeves, open backs, or floral appliqués can add that fairytale charm.

The groom and groomsmen need to be relaxed and stylish – suits in lighter fabrics like linen or cotton in shades of beige, tan, or light grey. Accessorise with suspenders, bow ties, and buttonholes made from wildflowers to complete the look.

Picture this: Soft pastels and earthy tones are one way to go, but there’s also the option to be inspired by a festival style and really push the boat out in terms of colour and print. The most important thing is that people don’t feel constrained and are encouraged to express themselves.

Decorations for Boho Weddings

This is where you can let your creativity shine and infuse the wedding with a personal and boho charm. It calls for natural elements like wood, stone, and greenery to be showcased and combined with your colour palette. You can have beautiful centrepieces using wildflowers, succulents, and candles in vintage holders. Use lace or burlap runners to drape the tables for an eccentric feel with vintage plates and glassware. Hang florals wherever you can – but not too precise, boho needs a bit of wildness! Of course, candles as far as you can, but be safe and use them sparingly.

Personal touches are also key to a boho wedding, so consider adding DIY elements like hand-painted signs, personalised favours, and photo displays of the couple’s journey together. These details not only bring out the boho aesthetic but also make your wedding more meaningful and memorable.

Picture this: A wooden altar draped with natural elements and woven fabrics. Boho absolutely needs hanging decorations like macramé, dreamcatchers, and strings of fairy lights that add a whimsical touch. Rattan and fringe lanterns, along with dried palm leaves or even paintings of natural elements add something different. Scatter agates or semi-precious stones and gems on the tables that match the colour scheme. For the ceremony’s seating try something different and consider using vintage sofas, or even floor cushions and rugs for a laid-back vibe.

Music for Boho Weddings

One of the hallmarks of a boho wedding is a lively atmosphere, and the right music is key to helping guests release their inhibitions. At All the Feels, we are experts in helping couples pick the perfect soundtrack for their special day – so here are a few personal recommendations:

  • Acoustic music: Many couples opt for a boho wedding because they want something down to earth – which can be complemented by the stripped-back vibe of an acoustic band that might remind guests of a recent gig or intimate gathering.

  • Folk music: Whether it’s timeless tales of love and longing or a knees-up to the tune of fiddles, flutes or mandolins – folk bands offer a warm and rustic charm that many people wish to capture when planning a bohemian wedding.

  • Roaming bands: A bohemian wedding should be freewheeling and effortlessly fun, and roaming bands offer a unique, personal and interactive experience. The musicians on the move can mingle with your guests, performing acoustic sets that add a touch of spontaneity to the celebration.

Bringing It All Together

Planning a wedding with a boho style and theme is all about embracing and bringing together creativity, personality, natural beauty, and a down-to-earth and joyful atmosphere. With the right venue, invitations, attire, decorations and music you can weave a magical tale of your personal love story.
