37 Bohemian Wedding Ideas that Will Bring Out Your Inner Flower Child

Bohemians used to be defined by their interest in creative endeavors and their wandering nature. We have bohos of yore to thank for design and décor trends aplenty and inspired pairings like feathers and gold, crocheted art and fresh blooms. That wild spirit has even worked its way into one of the oldest traditions — weddings

We love the way creative couples and talented design teams have reinterpreted hippie style with rustic wood tables, vintage glassware, brass rings outfitted with florals and tassels, winding aisles, and free-flowing greenery galore. The defining feature of bohemian weddings seems to be their eclectic mix of eras, colors, and styles that create a totally unique vibe

We imagine that if Monet went through a bohemian phase, this is the kind of wedding he’d conceive — it’s a water-color-inspired fantasy with an iridescent circular bar (totally on-trend), lovely florals suspended in ice, and a perfectly-boho ceiling installation

We’re having trouble imagining a place we’d rather be than this pristine stretch of Mexican beach. We long to lounge on these colorful overlapping rugs snuggled up in those brightly-patterned pillows. Sigh.
