Elements of A Boho Wedding

April 21, 2017

One of the most amazing parts about tying the knot, besides marrying my love, was dreaming up the entire scene. From the flowers, to my hair, to the setting, and of course, the dress (or dresses in my case), styling our dream day was, well, a dream!

We kept the feel and style very romantic, classic, and Parisian, because our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without it, but there’s a side of me that is also incredibly drawn to all things bohemian. I think it’s the Cali girl in me.

If we didn’t decide to wed in Paris and stick to our aesthetic, I would have definitely added in elements of boho style. There’s such an effortless, beautiful aura that comes with boho weddings and brides – I just adore it. The key, in my opinion, is simplicity mixed in with a few styling tricks.

Whether you’re dreaming up your wedding or have one around the corner – first off, congratulations are in order! Secondly, here are 4 ways to add hints of boho to your look:

Consider textures and fit

When choosing what you’ll wear for the festivities, gravitate towards a fit and texture that is sensible. Instead of ball gowns or silk that screams classic, think about flowy, unstructured pieces. Hints of lace, bell sleeves, long hems, or even a mismatched two-piece option will make you look and feel like a gorgeous, relaxed bride.

Head piece

A true boho girl always has flowers in her hair, or at least a unique head piece. Think gold leafy embellishments, a delicate chain, greenery, or even a hat if you want to keep a look casual – say for the rehearsal or day-after brunch.

Reconsider heels

Bohemian brides can be much more relaxed vs. traditional ones when it comes to what you’re wearing on your feet. Choose a flat pair of sandals – or if your venue calls for it,  forget shoes all together. Bare footsies will always be quintessential boho style.

Let your hair down

If you’re going for boho wedding hair, updos or anything fussy will take away from the vibe you’re craving. Keep yours simple yet stunning with beach waves, loose braids, or straight down and au naturel. It’ll be easier to work with a headpiece this way, too.

To all my boho girls getting ready to walk down the aisle, I truly hope your day is everything you’re dreaming of! What bohemian elements are you bringing into your looks?

Hi Jenny,

I have just contacted Chateau Esclimont regarding holding our wedding there after seeing your gorgeous photos. I was really disappointed to hear that they have just closed for 3 years. Would you mind letting me know if you had another venue which came a close second.

Ah no! Sorry to hear that! Definitely look at some other chateau’s in the area and best of luck xx

Love that white blouse!!

The top is from zara( I have it) I’m trying to figure out where the skirt is from ( likely sold out, as top is from last year) wish she would credit each item as opposed to suggesting similar” that are not similar at all…

Why can’t I just have all the Zimmerman? Sigh. Such amazing photos and post, my love. xo

Where is this hat from?! I’ve been searching for one just like it and I’ve had no luck 🙁

It’s from Lack of Color Australia!


Hi Jenny,

Love this post so much and all the hints and tips you have given!! – and love that you are so down to earth, literally my favourite social media influencer.

I just saw on instagram that you are going to Cuba in a few weeks – SO excited for your tips and for the amazing pictures you are going to get. What made you decide to visit? (your personal trips are inspiring). Hope you post loads! – also are you planning to do a really, long travel video? They are my fave!


It’s been a place on our list for a very long time, and we had a ton of exciting upcoming travel that was taking us in that direction, so we decided now was the time to make it happen! And yes, lots of upcoming travel vlogs!


Love the boho wedding inspiration

This is so dreamy! When I first saw this series on insta, I would have never guessed it was a boho wedding theme but it makes so much sense. Love it!

Jenny, for some reason the images are not loading 🙁 Am I the only one with that problem?


Try looking at the images now!


I absolutely love the boho aesthetic, especially for weddings!


Couldn’t agree more! I love a relaxed sense of elegance.

Lovely Jenny but I can’t see any of your photos/widgets in this post! <3 Personally I do not seeing myself as a boho bride! My boyfriend and I have only toured a few venues and our taste seems more palais rather than barn so far (favorite venue was Palais Coburg in Vienna so far!! Would also make a gorgeous photo shoot location for you if you're ever there.) but I love particular details from every type of wedding and bride! I love the hair down.


Definitely! Every bride and couple has their own unique style. That’s what makes weddings so special!
