To help you plan the wedding of your dreams, we’ve put together three handy guides (all linked above) – and our latest one, which focuses on events fit for a boho couple, is no exception.
Read on for our top tips and get ready to plan the most important day of your life…
Choose Your Dream Boho Venue
Not sure where to start when planning a wedding? It goes without saying but choose (and secure) your dream boho wedding venue first and everything will fall into place thereafter.
Are you hoping for a beach wedding, perhaps? If your wedding is in the UK, consider how your day could be impacted by the weather – and if there’s a covered area close to the beach you can default to if the forecast isn’t looking great.
Iron out any concerns with your wedding planner or venue manager first, and once you’ve bagged the right place – be that a beach, a forest or even a local park – you can start planning the finer details.
Think About What You’ll Wear
Love all things boho? Of course you do; you probably wouldn’t have stumbled across this article if not.
When you’re planning a boho wedding, anything goes – but only if your venue doesn’t have a formal dress code in place.
At a bohemian wedding, linen suits may take precedence over tuxedos, while floaty little numbers with ethereal trains could be the way to go over stiff and structured dresses.
While it’s important for everyone to look and feel good, consider how such outfits might fare in certain settings, though. For example, dresses with long trains may well trail through the mud if the wedding is outdoors. In that case, employ a team of ‘helpers’ (i.e., your most trusted family and friends) to lift your train while you’re walking down the aisle or red carpet. Linen suits are perfect on a hot day, but are they going to be warm enough for, say, a winter boho wedding?
While such details might not be amongst the most glamorous or exciting, they’re nevertheless important. Consider every scenario and you’ll be glad you did.
Boho weddings often take place outdoors, so consider how the venue décor will hold up should you experience anything other than a sunny, wind-free day.
Think about tying floral arrangements tightly to the backs of chairs (or even tree trunks – if you can easily take them off) and consider novel ways you can weigh down ‘Order of Service’ leaflets or pamphlets to ensure they don’t disappear on a strong breeze. Again, not the most glam of details, but certainly the most practical.
If you’re planning a boho wedding, you’re probably the kind of couple that doesn’t take themselves too seriously. So, should something not quite go to plan, we doubt you’ll even notice. Rain on your wedding day? It’s good luck, after all!
