How To Create A Bohemian (Boho Chic) Wedding

Some Kind of Wonderful Bohemian Wedding Gown

A soon as one wedding style seems to become trendy, another one is on the rise.  Last year, we started to see earthy, nature-loving inspired “rustic weddings which is hugely popular now – I think in part because DIY rustic style seemed to lent itself to the poor economy and partly because the eco-friendly trend began to wane and rustic moved into its place.  On the heels of the current rustic trend is all about Bohemian weddings otherwise known as Boho Chic weddings.

Boho style has been around for ages.  Bohemian-inspired weddings convey a feeling of unconventional, gypsy-like decor and eclectic elements. Think floral, nomadic, free-spirited and non-conformist – hippie meets gypsy. Bohemian weddings can include vintage items any elements that fit an artistic, artisan or hand-crafted feel. Bohemian style is not polished, it brings in elements of natural fibers, nature elements and lends itself to the DIY trend that is popular.   There’s many different styles of Bohemian weddings such as: Bohemian Beach, Vintage Bohemian, Gypsy Bohemian, Rustic Bohemian – or an eclectic mix of whatever you can put together than you like.  Remember, Bohemian style is something of a contradiction in terms because traditionally, bohemians dressed themselves and decorated in whatever they could find.
