A boho wedding dress is designed for the free spirit. Think lacy, flowing, crowns of flowers and romantic bouquets. We are sharing tips for a boho wedding dress and fashion to match your rustic vibe.
The Silhouette of a Boho Wedding Dress
The boho wedding dress is usually less formal, and foregoes the glitz and glam and all of the embellishments. You might still choose the plunging neckline and low-cut back with a sexy mermaid silhouette, but with the attitude of a minimalist. You probably will not choose a ballgown for this theme. A sheath, mermaid, trumpet or A-line dress are perfect silhouettes to match the rustic vibe.
Neckline of a Boho Wedding Dress
The boho wedding dress, like every dress, will have a neckline. Consider the features you want to enhance or hide. The Bateau neckline is a wide scoop neck that gathers at the shoulders, elongating the neck. Off-the-shoulder is an elegant look that brings attention to the shoulders and offsets wider hips. Spaghetti straps flatter slender frames and narrow shoulders. Square necklines bring the focus upward. A sweetheart neckline is low-cut in the shape of the top half of a heart. A V-neck drops low into a V-shape. A small-busted bride might choose a deep plunging neckline. The neckline leads to your sleeves, which is another important feature to consider.
The Color of Your Wedding Dress
A boho wedding dress can be any color. The most popular colors are ivory, champagne and creamy hues. If you want the diamond white wedding dress, you can definitely pull it off. However, soft tones are preferred to match the color palette and rustic vibe this theme creates. Your wedding dress should compliment your skin tone. Yellow or olive undertones look best with a champagne wedding dress. Pink undertones should choose a creamy hue. Fair skin looks perfect in ivory and warmer colors. Fair skin should avoid stark white.
Veils and Headpieces
The veil is always an optional piece, but when chosen, it should match the dress. A boho wedding dress is less formal, but can still pull off a chapel or cathedral veil. Most brides forego the veil and match their boho wedding dress with a simple crown of flowers. Loose braids with delicately interlaced flowers are even more popular styles with this theme.
Fabric for a Boho Wedding Dress
Fabric creates texture. Lace, embroidery and crochet are soft textures for a boho wedding dress. Lace is timeless, romantic and delicate, and can vary from fine Chantilly to a heavier and sculptured guipure. Illusion is also popular for parts of a boho wedding dress. Illusion is a sheer fabric that can be used in the sleeves or the bodice to add applique or lace detailing you could not otherwise.
Bouquets for a Boho Theme
Loose and simple arrangements that appear freshly picked from the garden will have the strongest boho vibe. Avoid the concentric circles of a biedermeier bouquet, which is created by a single flower type and color. The arrangement appears a little too tailored. A nosegay bouquet is the traditional bouquet, and can fit the boho theme. It consists of a round bouquet of flowers that is usually tied with a ribbon. A sheath bouquet can make a good choice. It consists of a handful of a single type of flower that is bound with ribbon, leaving the stems exposed. If you are thinking boho, think loose, organic feeling bouquets with a mix of wildflowers and traditional blooms. Your wedding flowers should always match the dress and wedding fashion.
The Venue to Match the Fashion
Before you choose your wedding dress or any of the fashion details, you should choose your wedding venue. Your wedding venue will have the largest affect on the theme. If you are planning a boho theme, plan with a venue that can create your look.
