Do you want to incorporate your bohemian sense of style into your wedding day? If so, there are plenty of ways to create timeless boho-inspired appeal! From choosing your ceremony space to creating unique, decorative touches at your reception, don’t be afraid to celebrate your inner flower child, with lots of romantic and whimsical details that will really showcase your poet’s soul, and help to set a beautiful backdrop for this next chapter in your love story!
Start with a Nature-inspired Ceremony
One of the best ways to celebrate your love of the great outdoors is to actually host your ceremony in an outdoor space. Here at Texas Old Town, for instance, we offer four unique venue spaces, each with stunning views of the Texas Hill Country, making it perfect for bohemian and rustic brides, alike.
To create visual interest at your outdoor setting, try simple chair markers, such as canning jars filled with wildflowers, or tree stumps marked with candles. Just keep in mind that the battery-operated kind are the safest choice in Mother Nature, especially, and they may be all that is allowed by your wedding venue. An aisle runner of fresh petals is another romantic touch, though you could also lay down a path of woven blankets, which is especially cozy for a fall wedding.
Decorate Your Reception with Romance and Wanderlust
To create a sense of wonder at your wedding reception, use decorative pieces that have a lot of history. This could mean borrowing and displaying actually old items from loved ones, such as the cake topper from your grandparents’ wedding or a framed photo from your parents’ wedding day. Or, you can fill the space with collected vintage items, and some directly from nature.
For instance, a vintage train case makes a perfect vessel for collecting cards and well wishes, and tattered books or tree slices are great starting points for table centerpieces. Mismatched teacups or pottery make great and unique flower vases. Just look for ones that suit your overall color scheme, or ones with similar faded metallic patina, to help pull the look together. Look for antique lace to top tables, or use it as a photo backdrop for guests to Instagram their evening.
Top the old items with fresh flowers, feathers and glittered or flowering tree branches for added romance and whimsy. And complete the look with mood lighting, either by candlelight or strings of twinkling lights!
