Welcome to your guide to bohemian wedding florals! Brides are becoming more and more adventurous with their wedding themes and schemes (which we sure do love), and one trend we can count on staying around for a good while is the bohemian wedding.
The bohemian theme takes influence from the hippie culture, and brides are loving this idea for their big day. There are many paths that couples can take when creating this theme, whether that be beach boho, desert boho, or even boho chic. For that free-spirited and creative bride, this is beyond perfect. We love the eclectic mix of natural, earthy, and romantic vibes all wrapped up into one dreamy wedding.
One of the wonderful aspects of going all-out boho, is the endless options of unique floral arrangements. There are no limits to the textures that can be used and don’t even get us started on the colors! We have seen the most jaw-dropping bohemian bouquets in burgundy tones, neutral tones, and some drawing inspiration from the autumn season.
Everybody loves an eye-catching bouquet, and this guide is sure to inspire!
Greenery & Foliage
When it comes to designing your perfect floral arrangements and centerpieces, there are a couple of things to keep in mind in order to achieve the bohemian look. Just think, the more greenery and foliage, the better.
When it comes to designing florals, most of the focus is turned towards the actual flowers; however, the fillers are just as important. It’s all in the details! Details are the perfect way for a couple to express themselves through the design.
Some of the best go-to greenery and foliage in a bohemian bouquet are seeded eucalyptus and silver dollar eucalyptus. Not only does eucalyptus smell heavenly, it adds fullness and texture to a bouquet. It truly is the perfect filler plant. Ferns are another great option. They come in a variety of shapes, tones and sizes, making them the perfect foliage for any bohemian bride. They look great in giant cascading bouquets; you are sure to be that stand-out bride!
If you are striving for that botanical look, air plants are an excellent choice. They are minimal, low maintenance, and add so much texture to an arrangement. With so many different ones to choose from, you can’t go wrong with these beauties!
A couple of our other favorite foliage picks include ivy and rosemary. They are such dainty greenery, but oh are they pretty.
Don’t get us wrong, traditional wedding flowers such as roses, peonies, hydrangeas and lilies are beautiful, but for the one-of-a-kind bohemian bride we encourage you to tap into your wild side!
There is something so magical about an array of wildflowers mixed with natural greenery, herbs, and grass. For a bold look, add a of king protea to your bouquet surrounded by smaller wildflowers. This South African beauty is sure to be the center of attention with its large size, mesmerizing texture and various colors. Bonus, it’s available year-round!
If you are looking to add a feminine but unique touch to your bohemian bouquet, the dahlia is an excellent option. This fall and summer bloom add a soft touch to any bouquet. Their petal design is mesmerizing. They also come in festive colors, so you are guaranteed to find one that compliments your color scheme.
Are you looking for pop of color? The craspedia is a quirky little flower from the daisy family. These look absolutely stunning in a cascading bohemian bouquet.
Think about adding a thistle to give your arrangement a little daring texture. You can easily spot these flowers from their prickly appearance. They are sure to make a powerful impression!
Now that we’ve gone over the basics, we can’t forget about the finishing touches! The best part of this design aesthetic is you can go beyond boundaries and think outside the traditional, clean, and symmetrical bouquet.
Who says you can’t add feathers to your florals? We are certainly all for it, and we absolutely adore how it looks! This small detail will add a charming vintage touch, while the neutral tones of the feather represent the wild and natural mood of the bohemian wedding.
The great thing about feathers is that you can easily incorporate them into other décor elements such as centerpieces, garland, hanging décor, or even on the cake! Just imagine the possibilities. Another great touch on a bohemian arrangement is to finish it off with either a twine tie, a fun colored long flowing ribbon, or even some crochet detailing.
Think outside the box and make it your own. Whichever arrangement you decide to go with, your bohemian florals are sure to be whimsical!
