Embracing Boho Chic

Bohemian chic style originates from the creative counterculture of the late 1960s and early 1970s. These artists and musicians used fashion as a form of self-expression. They avoided the stiff and structured styles of the time, instead choosing flowy silhouettes, loose fits, and natural fabrics full of patterns and textures. Bohemian bridal style has taken these ideas and given them a modern and glamorous feel to fit the elevated atmosphere of a wedding.

If you’re interested in boho chic wedding dresses, look for flowing A-lines and relaxed sheaths. These silhouettes have a more carefree feel that perfectly matches the bohemian vibe. Crocheted laces and nature-inspired touches like three-dimensional floral appliqués or botanical embroidery are popular choices for channeling free-spirited bridal fashion. Bring out that hippie 70s vibe with bell sleeves, or keep things simple with a billowing chiffon gown that highlights your natural beauty.

Boho chic has become a popular choice for modern brides because, at the core, it’s all about self-expression. Boho bridal style mixes whimsical and natural details, breaking traditional rules to showcase your unique personal style.

Fabrics and Textures

Bohemian style is all about relaxed fits and flowing fabrics, so there are a few textiles that are perfect for boho wedding dresses. First and foremost, look for airy and lightweight fabrics. Chiffon and tulle are ideal choices with their gauzy look and effortless feel. Something like our Phila Wedding Dress will look and feel like a dream at your boho wedding.

The sweetheart bodice features asymmetric draped chiffon with botanical beaded embroidery on the sheer waistline and back. The airy skirt delicately floats around you, and we love how the matching embroidered off-the-shoulder sleeves add to the bohemian look. Silk and soft satin also make stunning boho wedding dress fabrics for their radiant look and beautiful drape.

And, of course, we can’t forget about lace. One of the most traditional bridal fabrics gets a boho spin with unique patterns, weaves, and textures. Lace is incredible for a boho chic wedding dress because it can be created with braided and crocheted designs, or take a different approach with bold floral patterns and intricate geometric patterns. Textured bridal attire is quintessential of bohemian style, and with an allover lace design, there’s no need for extra embellishments to make the dress stand out. Our Brooke Wedding Dress is the perfect example!

The boho-inspired beauty has an effortless A-line silhouette in allover intricate lace that has a cool crocheted pattern. Braided lace trim helps to define your figure and highlight the straps that double to create a geometric back detail. A fine scalloped hemline and sheer train complete this free-spirited look. 

Boho Silhouettes

Brides love boho wedding dresses for their dreamy, flowing styles that create a relaxed and carefree vibe. This means that looser silhouettes like A-lines and relaxed sheaths are the top choices for boho wedding dress silhouettes.

A-lines are a popular pick for their universally flattering look. With a skirt that resembles the capital letter A, A-line silhouettes have a fitted bodice that nips in at the natural waistline and a skirt that gradually flares from waist to hem. This billowing shape looks light and airy, especially in soft tulle, ideal for brides who want a flowing wedding dress.

If you’re looking for a more fitted silhouette, something to show off your figure with its bohemian flair, then you’ll love a sheath silhouette. Sheaths have a streamlined look that follows the natural lines of your body, elegantly highlighting your curves. The style fits tighter along the hips and waist, with a skirt that falls around you in a column-like shape. Sheaths are considered a more minimalist silhouette, so pairing it with textured boho laces or bold floral embroidery is a great way to take this chic cut and give it that boho feel.

For brides worried that loose bridal gowns might have an unflattering fit, pairing these styles with an empire waist does the trick! As opposed to hitting at the natural waistline, where your torso is naturally the narrowest, an empire waist hits right below the bust.

Designed with a fitted bodice, an empire waist creates a slimming and lengthening effect. The cinch at the bustline creates a thin, high waist allowing for the billowing drape of loose fabric to create elegant long lines.

The beauty of these flowing wedding dresses is not only in their stunning boho look but the comfort they provide. Unlike the ultra-fitted and restrictive fit of mermaids and fit and flares, A-lines and loose sheaths make it easy to move, allowing you to float down the aisle and dance the night away feeling cute and comfortable!

Floral and Nature-Inspired Details

Boho wedding dresses often feature floral and botanical elements that bring the beauty of the natural world into your wedding dress. This organic look embodies the bohemian essence of connecting to the world around you with nature-inspired bridal details. This can be subtle, like the delicate floral motif of lace, whimsical with three-dimensional flowers, or bold botanical embroidery.

Floral patterns add a fresh and feminine feel to boho floral wedding dresses and can create a level of romance that might be missing from simpler boho gowns or ones that focus on geometric laces.

If full-on flowers aren’t your vibe, you can opt for a more abstract, botanical design. Whether it’s ivy-inspired or a leafy pattern, botanical embroidery is a great way to incorporate nature-inspired elements in your wedding dress.

If you’re looking for a fun, floral boho wedding dress, we think you’ll love our Paulette Wedding Dress. This dress has a sheer bustier bodice with botanical embroidery that flows down the billowing tulle skirt, pooling at the hem to create a beautiful border. The detachable bishop sleeves add to the boho feel of the dress.

For something with more of a vintage flair, there’s our Preciosa Wedding Dress. The gown is full-on floral with frosted, allover floral embroidered net on a relaxed A-line silhouette. The sweetheart bodice has a sheer inset with accents of floral patterned beading for added dimension. Detachable floral beaded straps give you versatility in styling and the scalloped hemline is a dainty touch.

And of course, we have to mention the soft and ethereal look of our Pacifica Wedding Dress. The floating tulle ball gown has a sheer corset bodice featuring asymmetrical draping with detachable off-the-shoulder sleeves. Floral organza embroidery has a dreamy effect offering delicate texture to the effortless dress. 

Boho Accessories

Found your dream bohemian wedding dress? Fantastic! Now you need the perfect boho bridal accessories to complete your look.

Nothing says boho like a whimsical flower crown. It’s the perfect alternative for the care-free bride who doesn’t want the hassle of a veil.

The beautiful floral wreath can be soft and delicate, made of baby’s breath and daisies, or full of bold and colorful statement-making blooms. This free-spirited accessory is charming and versatile. You can wear it in a multitude of hairstyles, like boho braids, relaxed waves, or even a classic updo. Flower crowns can also tie in with the other floral arrangements of your wedding, giving the whole affair a cohesive feel.

Of course, traditional accessories like veils and headpieces are an option too. Just add a boho twist. Hair pins, clips, and veils with a botanical design totally fit with the boho aesthetic. Think delicate branches, blooming florals, or leafy patterns. Our Cathedral Length Veil with Organic Lace Appliqués is a perfect choice, with its delicate leafy lace decorating the hem. And if you want something with more whimsy, there’s our Three-Dimensional Floral Cathedral Length Veil, featuring fun pops of 3D floral adding playful texture to the boho wedding veil.

To complete your look, take your bohemian style from head to toe with statement jewelry for brides, like playful floral earrings, stacks of stunning bangles, and chunky necklaces with organic designs.

And we know that many of our boho and beachy brides love to go barefoot, so don’t miss your chance to give your feet the bridal touch too with barefoot wedding sandals. These unique pieces connect around your second toe and ankle to give you the decorated look of sandals, while still remaining barefoot. Adding any of these accessories can take your boho bridal look to the next level, helping you feel polished and complete while still fitting in with the cool and comfortable aesthetic. 

Colors in Boho Dresses

While white is the traditional color for bridal gowns, boho chic style is all about marching to the beat of your own drum. That means you can forgo tradition for a wedding dress color that feels more you.

Boho wedding dress colors can range from earthy neutrals, inspired by the colors found in nature, to pretty pastels that have a soft and springy look.

Earthy tone bridal gowns are the more classic choice for bohemian brides, with darkened underlays that really make embellishments of the dress pop. Our lining shades like latte, cappuccino, and mocha span the range of cool, neutral, and warm undertones, making it easy to find the perfect earthy colored boho wedding dress.

Our Melody Wedding Dress is a great example. The whimsical gown has a sheer corset bodice with a dainty tie-bow to define your waist, enhancing the A-line silhouette. The billowing tulle skirt stuns with its floral detailing, a beautiful contrast against the earth-toned latte lining.

If you’re looking to make a statement with your boho style, then you’ll love our pastel bohemian wedding dresses. Lovely shades like blushes, baby blues, and lavenders are a great way to add color to your boho wedding dress while still feeling bridal.

Our Rosa Wedding Dress is one of our most popular bohemian gowns. It features a flowy A-line silhouette in lightweight tulle, with stunning floral embroidery cascading down the dress. The plunging bodice and sheer sides add a sultry touch, and the double-banded waist helps to cinch you in. The best part is the smoky lavender underlay that gives an ethereal feel to the dress.

When it comes to the perfect color for your boho wedding dress, if you’re looking to embrace a more organic feel, we recommend earth tones, bringing a sense of natural elements into your wedding. On the other hand, if you’re a fun, free-spirited, and adventurous bride, we think you’ll prefer the whimsical look of our pastel bohemian wedding dresses.

Of course, if you’re not looking to go all out with the color of your dress, you can create a more subtle look with colorful embroidery. Our Mallory Wedding Dress is a bohemian dream featuring colorful crystal beaded floral embroidery, cascading down from the v-neckline to the A-line tulle skirt. Pouf sleeves add to the fantasy and a pastel satin ribbon waist sash defines your figure.

Real Boho Brides Inspiration

If you need some more boho wedding inspiration, check out some of our incredible real boho brides! These stunning women found their dream dress, each unique and slightly different, to fit their idea of a bohemian gown–like our bride Molly, who knew she wanted a lace dress that had a classic, yet boho feel. Her stylist got to know her, and helped uncover her true style, so that when she pulled out our Brooke Wedding Dress for Molly to try on, Molly realized it was “the one!”

There’s also Breanna, who went for a more romantic vibe in our Felista Wedding Dress. Breanna knew she wanted a flowing A-line with long billowing sleeves, and from the moment she saw the gown in her local bridal salon, she knew it was her dream dress! And as a floral lover, the beautiful botanical appliqués were everything to her.

And if you’re wondering how you can display your personalized bohemian bridal style, our real bride Lexie shows us how she customized our Rosa Wedding Dress with long sleeves.

The popular style has everything a boho bride could want, an A-line silhouette in effortless tulle with breathtaking floral embroidery, but Lexie felt like something was missing. So she worked with an experienced bridal seamstress to create custom long sleeves, with matching floral appliqués, to make the gown all her own. Plus, she wore the style in our soft smoky lavender color, which she loved saying, “It’s really unique and looked great with my skin tone.” 

Care and Maintenance Tips

After the wedding, many brides want to preserve their gown, keeping it in pristine condition for years to come, so that memories can be cherished long term and potentially passed down to future generations. If you’re interested in putting the care into preserving your boho gown, here’s how you can do post-wedding dress maintenance.

Firstly, true gown preservation is more than just getting it dry-cleaned and putting it in a box. This is an investment, to be undertaken by professional gown preservationists, who will target each stain, from makeup smears to dirty hems, and even red wine, so that the utmost care is used in preserving delicate fabrics of wedding dresses.

If you plan to preserve your gown, it’s best to send off your dress as quickly as possible. This will ensure any staining or damage gets addressed quickly for a higher success rate of a gown that looks just as good as it did before your wedding.

It’s also important to note that, despite what might be believed, your dress should not be stored in an airtight box. Your wedding dress is meant to still be loved and appreciated, even after your wedding, so while storing it in an appropriate box, that can easily be opened, and in fact, should be at least once a year.

When you do pull your dress out to show it off or relive your big day, be sure that you have clean hands or are wearing cotton gloves when handling your gown. This will ensure that any dirt or natural oils discolor the fabric for long term boho wedding dress care.

The final step is to ensure you’re storing your gown in a cool dark place. And despite what many people might think, the basement or attic is not the right place. Consider the top shelf in your closet or in a wardrobe in a spare room to make sure it’s somewhere with a moderate temperature and humidity. 


Now you know, boho chic bridal fashion is loved not just for its look and feel, but the free-spirited attitude it brings to your big day. Besides being easy to wear, boho gowns are a form of self-expression, allowing you to show off your unique wedding style by embracing your bohemian side. Whether you love them for the flowing silhouettes, floral and botanical details, or the lightweight fabrics, it’s easy to see who boho wedding dresses are so popular!
