What is a Boho Style Wedding Dress?
As with most dresses, Bohemian Wedding dresses come in an array of shapes and styles. From flowing lace separates to floaty long-sleeved gowns and extended trains, the options are endless.
What makes a dress bohemian is the carefree vibe and sense of effortless elegance. Whether due to a more relaxed fit than a more traditional wedding gown, or a lace trimmed off-the-shoulder neckline. Boho dresses offer freedom and comfort with zero compromise on style.
What Style Of Wedding is best for Boho?
If you plan to fully embrace the Bohemian aesthetic for your wedding, there’s nothing like a natural outdoor setting to celebrate that choice. In a beautiful forest or similar woodland location, your bohemian look is right at home.

A favorite among boho brides is an outdoor wedding with a focus on florals, a quintessential flower crown, or jewelry headpiece to complete the look!
Although a bohemian dress fits a beach or other outdoorsy setting, that doesn’t mean this style of dress can’t work for a church or registry office. What’s so wonderful about planning your wedding is exactly that — it’s your wedding. There are no strict guidelines for planning a perfect day!
