As a long time wedding photographer, I’ve seen more wedding trends than I can count. From sepia-toned wedding photos to burlap and lace and everything in between, I’ve seen it all. Some of these trends fail. Some stick around for a long, long time (some longer than they should haha!). But, one trend I’m LOVING is the boho wedding trend.
Boho weddings are everything I love in a wedding. Beautiful, fun, relaxed, unique, creative, authentic, timeless. They have such a vintage, nostalgic air to them and I’m here for it.
I’ve been blessed to photograph a few boho weddings, as well as a gorgeous boho-inspired styled wedding. Each of these had so many unique details and a truly boho experience for their guests. I loved them so much, that I want to share with you some tips for planning a boho wedding!
One of the most important parts of a boho wedding is the location! You want a location that will perfectly compliment your style and give you the space to incorporate all the fun details you want.
Ranches are perfect for this! First of all, ranch weddings are so beautiful. Secondly, they typically have wide open spaces for you to spread out, enjoy nature, and have all the details you want.
Boho weddings are very guest-centric. While the boho vibe is naturally pretty chill, it’s also very much about being comfortable and having a great time with the people you love.
Incorporating a cozy seating area is something unique, cool, and awesome for your guests. This glam tent/yurt was a hit and I admit, I wanted to curl up in there myself! Doesn’t it look so inviting?
True, most weddings have booze. But, boho weddings do it in style. I absolutely loved this mobile bar. It was so cute and unique. And the signature cocktails were both beautiful and delicious!
Details, decor, and style are just as important to boho weddings as they are to traditional weddings. The thing, though, is that with boho weddings, you can get as weird, creative, funky as you want! These weddings are truly about YOU!
I adored their use of vintage cars and details, flowy and airy decor, and whimsical flowers. The whole design was so boho chic and perfectly THEM.
The thing about boho weddings is that they’re meant to be both beautiful and comfy. So, this means you can ditch the stilettos and ultra tight dresses. No more traditional makeup and hairsprayed hair. Take advantage of the boho vibe and find clothes, shoes, makeup, and hairstyles that make you feel comfortable, relaxed, and beautiful.
Of course, there’s a lot more that goes into planning a wedding, but these are just a few tips for planning a boho wedding. Comment below with any tips you’d like to share!
