Bohemian-style accessories can be easily recognised by the mix of natural elements and materials such as fabrics or leaf and flower motifs, fluid vine shape designs and a romantic aura overall. Here are five ways you can be inspired to create a Boho bridal look for your special day:
A Boho bridal look isn’t complete without even the tiniest flower, leaf or natural motif incorporated into a headpiece, jewellery or the wedding dress itself. Anything from floral lace appliques on the dress, a flower on a bridal belt, or a rose comb in your hair with trailing leaves.
Many Boho-inspired headpieces will incorporate a floral motif, leaves or even a trailing vine style element whether it is a crown, tiara, comb or clip. If you have chosen a wedding dress with a floral pattern or appliques, always try to choose a similar style of motif for your accessories. For example, a dress which features fabric rosettes on the straps will blend perfectly with a headpiece which also features roses or rosettes rather than a different type of flower.
The 2016 bridal season has seen designers launching so many more designs of hair vine rather than solid tiaras and headbands. The hair vine is a fluid shape which works well within a relaxed atmosphere and creates a fairytale element if you have chosen an outdoor themed wedding.
A trailing hair vine is the perfect choice of accessory to accent a loose, flowing bridal hairstyle. There is plenty of choice from a single strand vine to an entire floral crown with ribbons to tie at the ends. A hair vine which incorporates flowers is better suited for a beach or destination wedding as it will echo the tropical climes and look amazing in the wedding photographs. A flower vine is more detailed than simply choosing a hair flower so will add detailed interest and a special touch.
Shoes with Floral Embellishments
A simple way of adding a Boho touch to your bridal look is by choosing the right style of wedding shoes. A pair of sleek, contemporary heels will simply not be adequate to fulfil a full-on Bohemian wedding theme. Many designers such as Diane Hassall and Harriet Wilde add luxury touches to their wedding shoes– the key is to look for romantic-inspired motifs and embellishments. Diane Hassall incorporates a fairytale element into her shoes with luxury suede roses, sequin—centre flower appliques and the most detailed lace organza fabric. Harriet Wilde offers the most beautiful Boho-chic inspired styles within her collection with delicate lace fabrics offset against ribbon ties, cute shoe-boot shapes and laser cut flowers to add a new dimension to the traditional floral theme!
