Bohemian Bridal Guide: The Details on How to Ace the Look

The boho-chic style has been around since the 1960's and has only gained in popularity since. When it made its way into the wedding world, brides clutched onto its undone and free-spirited design and weaved it into everything from their braided flower crown hair to their wildflower bouquets. 

If you consider yourself a bohemian bride and want to create a wedding-day look that is beautifully boho-chic, read this guide to find out how to really rock the look.

THE DRESS

The bohemian wedding dress can be made up of all kinds of elements like flutter sleeves, crochet, lace, and layered, flowing tulle. It should be light, but luxurious, simple, but artistic. You'll know it when you see it and you'll feel like twirling in a field of flowers when you put it on!

THE HAIR

Bohemian bridal hair can be undone with flowing curls, braided, or put into a chignon. It really doesn't matter the style as long as you accent with a boho-chic accessory or veil. For a veil, consider a short design with scalloped lace edges or a mantilla veil if you'd like a longer length. If you want to forgo the veil and stick to hair accessories, a flower crown is always a winning look, but there's also flower combs and jeweled pieces or wear an updo with tiny flowers interspersed through the hair.

THE BOUQUET

The boho bouquet should be untamed, like a field of wildflowers. Loose, overflowing, natural. Succulents are always a nice touch, as well as long greenery and flowers like roses, proteas, daisies, wildflowers, and scabiosa pods.

THE MAKEUP

A bohemian bride's makeup should be light and natural like her dress and bouquet. Use a foundation with a dewy finish and add a little bronzer for a natural glow. Keep eye colors earthy and neutral and the lips nude or peach.
