One of the hottest bridal gown trends lately is the “bohemian bride”, and we can’t get enough of it! We love this look; its’s such an easy, romantic, and natural feel. What’s the greatest part of this trend? There are so many ways you can incorporate it into your bridal gown! Being a “boho bride” does not pigeon hole you into a particular style when you’re shopping for your perfect dress. This blog highlights our latest photoshoot with Claire Sherwood Photography, Claire Harris make-up, Nadine Medina Jewelry, Stylist Mary Elise Rees, and Flower Scout designs. It demonstrates how you can achieve the bohemian look with bridal gowns of different styles and silhouettes.
A bohemian bride is very simple and natural, so many people don’t think of embellishment when they think “boho”. However, this Hayley Paige “Remmington” gown features an illusion floral beaded bodice that has such a boho vibe. The floral design and the illusion sleeves have such a natural feel, and the English net skirt is so soft and romantic. Pair this dress with a soft glamorous headpiece and you have a sparkling boho bride!
Lace is also an unexcpected element of a boho bridal gown. Many people think classic elegance when they see a lace bridal gown. This Mikaella, style 2016, is so simply stunning, it totally gives off that easy bohemian feel. It definitely is classic and elegant, but paired with a flower crown and some “earthy” metals, the gown is transformed to bohemian.
So many brides assume they can’t have a full volume bridal gown when they are trying to achieve a boho look, but in our opinion, that isn’t true at all. This Mikaella, style 2003, illustrates how even a ballgown can have a bohemian vibe. The tiered organza skirt with horsehair edging is so soft and flowy even with its volume. The lace corset bodice is classic with a modern twist. This gown paired with the right accessories- a flower crown and earthy jewelry- is so relaxed and natural.
Chiffon is the classic bohemian bridal gown material, and this Tara Keely a-line chiffon gown, style 2557, couldn’t be more easy and simply boho. The venise lace bodice with illusion neckline and back is sexy yet appropriate, and the movement of the skirt is so perfectly bohemian.
Tulle is also a very classic wedding gown material. Many brides immediately think princess when seeing a tulle bridal gown, but this Blush by Hayley Paige gown, “Candi”, is so different and cool, it totally has a bohemian vibe. It is a two piece! A lace sheath underneath a tulle overlay. The cut of the tulle gives the gown some edge and since it is an illusion, it isn’t too overpowering. A fabulous chic headpiece goes great with the simplicity of this gown.
