Being a bohemian bride is all about allowing your natural beauty to shine through with a stunningly effortless look. From your head all the way down to your toes, you want to appear like you’ve been strolling through an enchanted forest or a magnificent meadow. Here are some trends we’ve noticed on brides going for that rustic chic feel.
Starting from the top, the signature hairstyle for a boho look is loose romantic waves. The wavy hairstyle fully captures the carefree feel of the outdoors. Leave your hair down or opt for a low, slightly messy style for a whimsical vibe.
Another hair style option is a braid, which works with both down and up styles. For updos, a french braid can be added near the crown of the head, while longer styles can incorporate a few braids in the front or spread out throughout.
Style tip: Add flowers to your hair to channel your true, inner flower child. Whether woven directly into your hair or worn in the form of a headpiece, florals can be a great accessory for the bohemian bride. Choose real or fake flowers; just make sure the colors and style complement your bouquet.
You’ll already have a radiant glow from your wedding day, and you want your makeup to match the rest of the organic theme, so keeping a natural look is key. Opt out of bold statements such as bright red lips and instead go for a nude or pink lip. Eye makeup and nail polish should be a neutral shade, too.
Aside from your wedding band and engagement ring, your jewelry should be minimal. Less is more! If you insist on having a little bling, a light, small necklace or stud earrings are all you need.
As for the bouquet, there are so many options to choose from! To help narrow it down, we suggest you choose flowers and a color scheme that depicts the types of flora and fauna found in a nature filled setting. This can include light pink roses, cornflowers, lavender, lilac and even wheat grass. Mix and match flowers and plants to create a whimsical, one of a kind look!
Style tip: Wrap the bouquet in burlap ribbon to really set the boho tone.
