6 features of a boho wedding dress

Popular in the 60s, the bohemian style is above all a state of mind : less tradition, more freedom !

Bohemian weddings, unlike antiques weddings, have a more natural, romantic and refined style, whether in the place, the decor, the ceremony but also in the outfit.

The trend is for boho chic and bohemian bridal dresses are in the air! Specialized in the field, the Dream it Yourself team explains what are the characteristics of this trend.

1 / The comfort

Down with the big crinolines and corsets too tight, the boho look opts for aerial outfits in fluid fabrics that let the body move as it feels! Brides want to feel comfortable in their dress to enjoy their day!

2 / The noble materials

Contemporary brides want a more refined look and prioritize noble materials such as silk, silk crepe, crocheted cotton and lace for fluidity with refined details.

3 / Soft and natural colors

It is very rare to find bright colors in bohemian wedding dresses. White, beige or nude are the most used shades for these romantic outfits with a retro touch.

4 / Long sleeves or 3/4

Transparency and opacity are mixed to give the bride an elegant and refined look. Guipure sleeves in cotton, lace or silk with a delicate detail give your outfit a touch of romance.

5 / A crop top and a fluid skirt

Against what we think, the crop top and the fluid high waist skirt is an excellent choice for all types of silhouettes.

The belly of future brides are revealed but very discreetly in a look between vintage and modern!

Would you dare to try it?

6 / An open back

Did you know that the back was one of the most sensual parts of the woman’s silhouette?

Whether diving, light V or closed with small delicate buttons, the open back is a beautiful alternative that combines elegance and charm.

The beautiful surprise can be read on the guests’ faces when the bride turns her back!

To complete your bohemian look, opt for a  “messy hair under control” hairstyle,  a floral crown and a natural make-up.

With the bohemian style, minimalism is synonymous with elegance, softness and lightness are in the spotlight and the natural highlighted!
