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
1. Watercolor Wonderland with Trendy Touches
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

2. Beach Blanket Boho
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.

3. Industrial-Boho in Brooklyn
When we think boho, we imagine wildflowers in a riot of colors and wild greenery — this Brooklyn wedding had all of that, and more.

This celebration is a wonderful mix of modern elements like perfectly-composed white florals and floating white candles. But its amber-hued stemware, effusive greenery, and stunning floral installation hovering over the whole affair give it a decidedly boho edge.
5. Free-Spirited Fête
A lush garden setting was just-right for this free-spirited affair. We adore how apothecary bottles were repurposed to hold dandelion and other wild florals and how amber and soft-pink goblets added additional color and personality to the tabletops.

8. There’s No Place Like Home — When it Feels Like a Vacation
We adore how this Washington D.C. celebration was made to feel like a vacation with palm fronts, ferns, greenery galore, and pops of yellow blooms — perfect for the flower child in all of us.
9. Bringing Hippie-Style to a Country Club Locale
A country club is an unlikely choice for a boho-inspired affair, but the wood tables, garlands of greenery, and a totally unique agate installation worked perfectly with the elevated locale for an inspired celebration.

22. Organically Fresh & Green
The restrained ivory floral palette for this celebration really allowed every element to shine. We are in love with the greenery draped from the top of this white-tented soirée and how it thematically ties to every little sweet sprig of rosemary at each place setting — as well as the natural scene beyond.
23. Modern Tropical Soirée
Full-sized palm trees make clear just how towering the flowing white tent at this gorgeous wedding was. Cool green glassware and pops of yellow on the linen brought the tropics right down to the tabletops with a delightfully sunny boho vibe.

24. Rustic & NYC are No Longer an Oxymoron
We love the trend towards using delicate baby’s breath en masse at events so much that we put it first on our Wedding Trends for 2020 feature. String light curtains and floating candles create a magical scene while the super-clever mini taxi cabs infuse pure NYC into the place card table.

The overlapping-rug beach aisle and tables, filled with unique chargers and bright blooms, have kept us coming back to this wedding album over and again.
37. A Unique Mix of Boho & Glam
When you think about a bohemian vibe, Walt Disney World is probably the last thing that comes to mind, but this Orlando wedding proves that a talented event team can create magic. Deep red roses and a resort setting lend the glam, while wooden accents and twinkle lights bring the boho spirit.
