Top tips for a boho wedding

Clearwell Castle offers the perfect setting for boho-inspired wedding celebrations. Set in a romantic forest, this magnificent castle is complete with roaring log fires and grand reception halls. Its fairy tale charm goes hand in hand with a bohemian vibe, if its done right. In this post, we share our top tips for creating a boho wedding that’s not only quirky and creative but relaxed and truly unique.

Boho wedding

Embrace those key bridal looks

Contrary to popular belief, the boho bride isn’t an unfussy bride. Every bride has the right to look and feel fabulous on their wedding day. By choosing a dress that is long and flowy, and accessorising with eclectic pieces, you’re already nailing the boho look. One Fab Day recently shared their top boho bride looks, and each couldn’t be more different than the last. Bohemian wedding dresses come in all shapes, styles and shades, so you’re certain to find the look that’s right for you.

Wedding dresses with sleeves, particularly full length or flared sleeves, are also a great way to go for brides looking to channel that relaxed, comfortable but elegant feel.

Accessories complete the boho look

As well as choosing a bohemian inspired dress, your bridal accessories are there to complete the look. Simple and unfussy accessories work well to complement boho wedding dresses, a theme that should be reflected in your hair and makeup. Flower jewellery is the perfect accessory choice for boho brides and their bridesmaids. Whether worn as a halo, headband or wrist corsage, your flower jewellery will complement the wider, romantic forest scene. Flower jewellery will also help you cement the outdoor theme even when it’s time for you and your guests to head into Clearwell Castle to continue the celebrations.

Bride and nature

Keep your décor rustic

The simple, back-to-basics theme should continue with your wedding décor and floral arrangements. Going over to the wild side is recommended for boho-inspired weddings as described here by Brides:

“Floral arrangements that look perfectly imperfect are essential for boho celebrations. Think bouquets of grass and garden roses arranged to look as if they were just picked and bunched together with a thick satin ribbon bow…for centerpieces, a collection of bottles in different shapes and sizes filled with grasses, fern leaves and garden roses, including the rose buds, would work well.”

As well as opting for the wild and rustic with your boho flowers, go back to nature with your wedding venue styling. Use natural materials such as feathers, wood, lace, ribbons, and DIY jars and bottles. Mismatched crockery and furniture will also work a treat, whilst unique, DIY and personalised favours and place settings will pull the entire boho look together.
