Boho Beach Wedding on a Budget

Boho” is short for “bohemian” which refers to a free-spirited lifestyle. The boho style began trending in the 2000s, with influences from the 60s and 70s, and we don’t see this trend going anywhere! The boho style is all about artistic self-expression. Dreamcatchers, flower headbands, and wavy beach hair are part of this look. Bare feet and a simple earthy floral touches bring this whole look together. Even if you don’t completely identify with this “hippie” inspired lifestyle, you can still express your unique tastes and incorporate the boho theme into your wedding. Whether you’re looking for inspiration for a fun, informal wedding or a more romantic one, the boho style will look amazing at an outdoor wedding by the ocean. This style is light, flowy, and free-spirited. The essence of boho is chic, effortless, and timeless…and a low beach wedding cost doesn’t hurt either!

How to Have a Boho Beach Wedding

THE DRESS:

To make your big day as stress free as possible, the key is making all your decisions ahead of time. Boho wedding dresses come in many forms. You can choose a design that incorporates subtle boho elements or opt for a statement dress with tons of bohemian flair. Bell sleeves, separates, flowing skirts are all fun boho dress elements. While we don’t recommend adding boho touches to a completely classic satin ballgown, there are tons of ways to take a simple classic gown and pair bohemian details with it, such as a flower crown or statement jewelry. Timeless lace and shorter skirts can work too.
