Bohemian weddings have a distinct feel. There is a relaxed air to your wedding created through the right choice of clothing, decoration and flowers. Your bridesmaids are an important part of building this atmosphere, so it is vital to get their clothing right.
Bohemian weddings showcase natural materials and colours. When looking for bridesmaid dresses, opt for muted greens, reds, and yellows, which reflect nature. You don’t want anything too bright as it will jar with the rest of your theme.
Nudes and browns or floral patterns which pick out the key colours are also good choices. And don’t forget you can blend shades as an excellent way to make sure you’re accommodating for your bridesmaids differing skin and hair shades.
Maxi dresses are ideal for the bohemian wedding, but, just like the colour, they don’t all have to be the same to fit your theme. If bohemian weddings are meant to be relaxed, you need to make sure your bride squad are too.
Give your bridesmaids a dress type, such as the maxi style, and colour, then let them find the one that flatters their body shape.
The material for bohemian bridesmaid dresses is typically more flowing than for formal dresses. Fabrics such as tulle, silk, and lace are ideal as they allow for freedom of movement.
Accessories are also crucial to creating your theme. If you have a shawl, all your bridesmaids could have one similar but smaller and in a colour that complements your own. The same goes for hats or footwear. If you’re wearing a specific type of boot, then consider your bridesmaids doing the same. The effect will be striking.
Ensure whatever your bridesmaids have are smaller versions of your own, including the grasses or wheat sheaves. It really embraces the celebration of nature that typify bohemian weddings.
