Simple Ideas for a Bohemian Wedding

If your vibe is more “flower child” than “fairy princess,” a bohemian theme may be perfect for your wedding. Blending a natural, rustic feel with a dreamy, vintage quality, boho weddings are beautiful yet informal, and most of all, filled with love, romance, and good vibes!

Whether you want to go full-on Boho Bride or you just want to add bohemian elements to your wedding, we are sharing our favorite, simple ways to bring romantic rusticness to your big day!


Flower Crowns and Daisy Chains

Skip the tiara and wear a crown - of flowers! Nothing says “Boho Bride” like a flower crown. Surprisingly easy, you can create a beautiful floral crown to wear in your hair in a few minutes with your favorite blooms and blossoms. Consider pure white chrysanthemums and daisies to match a white wedding dress, or add color with lavender, orange blossoms, or evergreen boughs (perfect for a winter wedding!). We love these flower crown tutorials from Buzzfeed and Lauren Conrad!

If flower crowns aren’t your thing, pin a large blossom in your hair or tuck a bloom behind your ear for a similar effect.


Rustic Wooden Picnic Tables

Instead of renting tables and covering them with white tablecloths, send out a call to action to borrow picnic tables! The rustic, weathered boards are perfect for the reception, adding an informal tone while encouraging new and old friends to sit and share stories of the bride and groom.

You can leave these tables bare aside from centerpieces for a rustic feel, or you can play up the romantic side with soft, lace tablecloths (raid Grandma’s attic for truly vintage ones!)


Candle Centerpieces

Remember the flower crowns? Instead of large, overly-designed floral arrangements for your table centerpieces, set a romantic mood with soft candlelight. Use pillar candles encircled in flowers that mimic your own flower crown, or float tealights and flowers in vintage crystal bowls of water.

From vintage vases and tins for flower arrangements to amazing, antique jewelry to wear down the aisle, look at your local antique shops and flea markets for the perfect decorations for your wedding and reception.

This is also a great way to find original, vintage sets of dishes for your wedding reception. Not only will they most likely cost less than renting dishes, these make an amazing heirloom to keep and hand down through your family!
