Wedding inspiration: bohemian theme

A subdued bohemian theme is a hassle-free choice to theme your wedding day. The antithesis of the classic theme, bohemian – or boho chic – is unconventional, adventurous and suits all those free-spirited brides and grooms out there.

Dusty hues or bold tones

While bohemian colourings can be muted or bold, for weddings, a subdued colour scheme is a great starting point – enabling you to inject pops of orange or green for effect.

Many bohemian-themed weddings feature dusty colours tinged with natural elements like dried flowers, hand-made macramé hanging and native foliage. Cane-weaved furniture and untreated timber help to finish off the look.

If your style of boho is bolder, inject lots of bright, mismatched colours in tableware, vases, candles and flowers.

Arty and unconventional

The best aspect of the bohemian theme is that not everything needs to match. Visit your local vintage store for collections of vases, stands, cushions, glasses or wall hangings.

You could blend guest chairs by choosing a mix of colours and styles. Or keep the look moody with the Bentwood chair in walnut.

Drape some festoon lights and hang some rustic-style lampshades.

Hippy extras

Layering is your friend when you’re styling a bohemian wedding. Layer rugs on the floor, blankets on the furniture, as well as tablecloths and napkins on the tables. Group displays of flowers in asymmetric vases with rustic candle holders.

Hang dried foliage arrangements across an arbour, a wooden easel frame and welcome sign, or above guest tables.

And don’t forget a beautiful crown of flowers for the bride and flower girl to nail the boho chic style.
