Boho weddings

What is Boho?
Boho is an upmarket form of hippy that celebrates the whimsical and unconventional, embracing the odd bit of DIY. Boho weddings are often low key with a festival feel, perfect if you don’t want a traditional wedding and want to host a unique and more relaxed event .

The Boho bride

The look for a boho bride is more relaxed, with long dresses that are overlaid with crochet or lace trimmings and flat open toe sandals. Hair will be in a care-free updo or loose waves topped with a flower crown; makeup is always left natural. Boho bridesmaids will also be wearing a similar style with casual dresses in pastel shades or mismatched colours.
