Ask The Experts: How to Create a Boho-Chic Wedding Style

Boho is such an on trend style for weddings at the moment. When I started this blog nearly 13 years ago, it was a very niche market, now its super popular and has grown into a huge trend. It’s not just boho these days, there are so many sub sections of Boho you can look at, there really is a Boho for every kind of Bride. Today we are looking at ‘How to Create a Boho-Chic Wedding Style’, what Boho can mean and how to make sure your wedding is the right style of Boho for your wedding personality!

Don’t be fooled. Even though boho is meant to feel effortless and “thrown together,” it is so very much more than that. Be very specific when meeting with a planner and imagining how the wedding will look. Will you for Desert boho, beach boho, modern boho, farmhouse boho, 70s Topanga Canyon boho, the choice is endless! Sometimes it’s helpful to pick the dress first. Remember – boho chic isn’t just a matter of selecting a colour palette. It’s also a matter of committing to a texture. Brides should do their fabric homework and think through their wedding jewelry options.

Simple is best. Otherwise, your thematic decor devolves into the kind of hodgepodge that leaves guests feeling claustrophobic. Too often brides think they are broadcasting “free spirit’ when really they are painstakingly staging an unappealing rummage sale. Consider how often going for a tousled hairstyle just looks like “woke up outside in an electrical storm”

Now we are off to Tattersall Lakes for the week, so my out of office is well and truly on! I can’t wait for a week full of activities with my two boys, we go every year and it’s always a fun filled holiday! I have lots to keep you occupied while I am away though, starting with the wedding of Chelsea and Charles who were married on 18th January 2022 in Dayton, Ohio. The couple held an intimate ceremony in a gorgeous industrial building with 50 of their closest friends and family, followed by a big party reception. This wedding is cool, modern with a boho twist and filled to the brim with love and laughter. Big thanks to Amber Garrett Photography for the lovely images.

Ellyn and Nicholas were married on 5th September 2021 at White Aspen Creative. ‘While both of us are from Minnesota, we had always dreamed of doing a destination wedding. Nick has family out in the Bend area that we had visited earlier in 2019, and when we were there we absolutely fell in love with the area. We knew we wanted to bring our family and friends out here to create a fun and unique experience for our guests. We had 120 guests, we had a long engagement and took just over 1.5 years to plan the wedding.’
