What is boho wedding dress style?
The boho wedding dress style is a trend that is taking the world by storm. The term “Bohemian” refers to someone unconventional, artistic, and independent. It’s this unique quality that makes the boho style appealing. The Bohemian wedding dress aesthetic includes lace, feathers, and other embellishments such as jewelry and beaded accents. These elements give your wedding day an ethereal feel with a touch of delicacy and femininity.

Types of boho wedding dresses
Boho bridal dresses are essentially any dress that has a bohemian style. They come in various styles, including lace, chiffon, tulle, and more.
- Lace: Lace is generally the go-to fabric for boho wedding dresses and is typically found on the bodice or sleeves. It’s a popular choice because it offers a feminine touch while still being lightweight and flexible enough to dance the night away in!
- Chiffon: Chiffon is perfect for summertime weddings as it’s light and airy, and water-resistant. It also comes in an array of colors to have your wedding look match your color scheme!
- Tulle: Tulle can be made from silk, satin, or polyester, adding an extra dimension of elegance to your wedding dress. The skirt will also appear fuller with this material as it’s stretchy and flowing, which allows you to move easily throughout the day without worrying about tripping on your skirt. This is especially important if you’re planning to dance at your reception!
- Satin: Satin offers a sleek finish with a beautiful sheen that compliments the rest of your outfit perfectly! It’s also breathable, so your skin won’t get too hot if you wear this during warmer weather months!
Finding the perfect boho wedding dress for your body type
Every woman has different body types, which means the perfect wedding dress for one woman may not be the best for another. So how do you find the perfect boho bridal gown for your body type? It’s all about figuring out what will work best for you. Here are some things you should consider when looking for a boho wedding dress:
- How tall are you? If you’re taller than 5’10”, it’s worth considering a maxi-length dress, as they tend to be longer and flow better.
- What is your shape like? Do you have long legs, shorter legs, or hourglass curves? Consider dresses that accentuate your figure and can flow well with your chosen theme.
- What is your budget? This depends on what style you want to go with.
Tips and tricks for choosing the perfect boho bridal gown
When choosing your boho bridal gown, it’s important to consider all of the elements that are going to make up your wedding. Start by thinking about what kind of theme you want for your day, then think about how formal or informal you want it to be. You should also choose what type of venue you’re going to have your wedding in. If you’re having a backyard wedding, think about whether or not the dress will need to stay up long enough for everyone to see. When considering how formal the dress is, remember how much time you’ll need to spend standing on a linens-covered surface getting ready and dancing. A floor-length dress would be perfect for a backyard wedding because you won’t need to worry about tripping over it as often!
Headpieces for your boho wedding day
One of the most important things to consider when having an outdoor wedding is your headpiece. There are so many beautiful options out there! Here are some gorgeous headpieces that will make their way into your boho wedding day ensemble:
- Beaded headpiece
- Tulle veil with a beaded crown
- Lacy birdcage veil
- Leaves and flowers crown
