There’s no denying that the boho bridal trend is huge right now – and luckily for us it’s here to stay. If you want a comfortable, body skimming wedding gown, with loose hair to match (as opposed to corsets and lacquered up do’s) then a boho gown could be the right fit for you.
We love this type of pretty, flowing wedding dress – ideal to feel relaxed in during the day (and doesn’t require copious lacing up the morning of the ceremony). They’re a particularly good choice if you’re getting married outdoors and are aiming for a relaxed casual vibe throughout the day – like a festival-themed wedding. You can even skip the shoes and go barefoot if you want to!
Boho gowns are perfectly suited to city brides too. If you’re having a civil ceremony in a town hall followed by a knees up in the pub, you might not want a formal ball gown, complete with corset and long train. But boho doesn’t mean bland – you can style up a loose gown with a statement bow at the back, or opt for a plunging neckline. You can even go for a vintage boho vibe with intricate details such as beads and gems.
The boho trend is inspired by the 1960s hippie, ‘make love not war’ movement, moving away from formalities and convention and just prioritising ‘peace and love’ – and what better occasion to demonstrate peace and love than your wedding day? Right on! It’s also incredibly romantic, whimsical and artistic with roots in the French art scene just after the Revolution, where creatives were cash-poor nomads, choosing non-fussy clothing over too many frills and fripperies.
