Just What Is Boho?

Every bride’s wedding day vision is equally as unique as she is, and her dress makes up a large part of her vision!

When a bride begins her search for a wedding dress, she comes in with an idea of what theme will best fit her vision. Some are searching for an elegant, timeless gown with little embellishment or lightweight gowns for a destination wedding. Others desire beaded beauties to fit themes like Hollywood glam or New Year’s Eve.

Brides in search of Bohemian style dresses are increasing in popularity, and those who come in searching for these specific dresses have a variety of meanings to what they think makes a dress qualify as “boho”.

While the meaning of bohemian can be rather ambiguous, there are a few specifications that remain rather consistent.

Boho gowns typically are inspired by nature and may encapsulate different aspects of nature through floral lace patterns.

Typically a bohemian gown will be romantic and incorporate natural colors such as champagne, mocha, or blush. Regardless of the dress shape, there is typically a light and flowy component that makes the dress feel unique and wondrous.

Some brides look for a heavier, bold lace overlay like the ones on the Madi Lane India and Marley dresses. The natural champagne underlay creates the perfect backdrop for the intricate lace design to really pop!

Other boho brides look for more floral or vine-like elements in the lace. Gowns like Elora and Harper are perfect examples of this

Abigail and Aubrey have gorgeous beaded lace floral patterns that look incredible on the boho bride with an outdoor ceremony. While keeping the earthy feel, the light sparkle adds to the detail. Abigail has a detachable off the shoulder sleeve while Aubrey has a lovely and whimsical tiered skirt.

Our slim a-line Madison gown by Madi Lane is a soft champagne color with stunning floral lace and a delicate tulle overskirt that flows beautifully behind the bride as she walks down the aisle.

Boho also includes flowy plain skirts attached to lacy, light, more open bodices, like the Normandie by Enzoani, that can be accessorized with flowers perfectly placed in the bride’s hair!

Bohemian brides want their dresses to work perfectly with their venues, too. Typically outdoors, these ceremonies are anywhere from an open backyard, a woodsy clearing, a garden setting, even a mountaintop! Can’t you picture it? Wildflowers the elements of nature all around, and a beautiful bride, natural and real, in her perfectly flowy boho dress!
