Finally, we can say goodbye to those dark, cold winter months, banish those warm, winter woollies to the back of the wardrobe and say hello to endless sunshine, chic dress and warm, romantic nights – we hope!
The Spring/Summer seasons are about to start, and not surprisingly thanks to the promise of warmer weather and beautiful blooms, it is also the busiest time for the wedding world. It is also no surprise that during the spring and summer months, that outside Boho themed weddings are a incredibly popular choice amongst bride and grooms, but before I run off into the world of beautiful dresses , shabby chic décor and rustic flowers, maybe I should explain, what exactly is a Boho wedding?
What is Boho?
Boho weddings stem from the ‘Boho –chic’ fashion style, which draws its inspiration from the bohemian and hippie influences. Think bright, feminine colours, soft pastels, and floaty materials. These were times where women embraced their femininity and this reflected in their style. Boho brides usually opt for soft colours, and beautiful embellished gowns. Floaty, soft fabrics that look simple and uncomplicated are perfect, because of the carefree, fresh and feminine style of the boho scene; it has seen an increasing popularity at weddings over the past few years. Boho brides have welcomed that hippie influence and fell in love with a rustic, outdoor affair, breathing new life into the ‘Shabby Chic’ style. It’s always so refreshing to see each bride’s unique twist on the trend, from garlands on fresh flowers in their hair instead of glitzy headpieces, to using bales of hey in place of formal chairs for guests to sit on. Boho weddings always have a relaxed and carefree feel to them, and the utterly beautiful outfits and décor fit in superbly with the happy, warm spring and summer seasons.
