10 Ideas for a Boho Style Wedding

09 Feb 2016

Planning on a laid-back bohemian style wedding day? From flower-seed favours to decorative bicycles, here are 10 ideas for a beautiful boho wedding 

1. Glass bottles with flowers


A selection of glass bottles filled with colourful flower arrangements make a pretty statement at tipi or festival weddings. Either make them yourself with thistles and roses or gain inspiration from The Flower Studio on notonthehighstreet.com.

2. Eco-friendly invitations


Why not go eco friendly with the wedding invitations? Wildflower Favours offers wedding invitations made from thick, recycled 150gsm A5 paper with embedded seeds for an authentic feel. The plus side is that guests can plant them as they’re made from plantable flower-seed paper. A lovely keepsake.

3. Boho headpiece


To complete the free-spirited bridal look go for a crystal headpiece that sits across the forehead. Try the Skylar headpiece from Tanya N
ì Bhroìn for £220.

4. Mason jars


Whether they’re filled with Pimm’s and fruit or homemade lemonade, Mason jars are a trend winging their way into many garden-themed weddings. If you’re happy for guests to help themselves to drinks, opt for a vintage-style dispenser too. Try this set of four drinking jars with carrier and a garden party drinks dispenser from Dotcomgiftshop, or find somewhere to hire them if the guest list is lengthy.

5. Hay bales and blankets


Cool night air is part of the charm of outdoor weddings but make sure guests still feel comfortable by supplying a basketful of blankets. A few hay bales can work as cheap seating arrangements for those in need of a warm up and sit-down. They don’t need to be a budget breaker either. This fringed red version from HomeSense is just £14.99.

6. Seed wedding favours


The perfect gift from any eco-friendly earth-loving couple, seed favours are cost-effective and great for finishing table settings. Choose from a range of seeds at Wedding In a Teacup. Our favourites are sunflower or sweet pea. Prices start from £1.40.

7. Bicycles


Vintage bicycles are frequently being styled at barn, tipi and marquee weddings. Fill their baskets with blooms and add a chalkboard with your names written on for a friendly greeting.

8. Sparklers


An illuminating photo opportunity, it’s a fabulous sight when guests form a line for brides and grooms to walk past. Atmospheric for an outdoor evening reception and a favourite for the photo album.

9. Hangover kit


A celebrity trend from over the pond, goody bag hangover kits prepared for wedding guests go down an absolute storm. Often filled with plasters (for injured dancing feet), mouthwash, eyedrops, energy bars, fruit, water and sometimes mini bottles of alcohol for a hair-of-the-dog style hangover cure, it’s easy to see why they’re popular. Etsy offers a variety of options, or create your own. This chemical-free Hangover Rescue Balm, a natural and refreshing remedy with avocado butter, bees wax, peach oil and lemon from notonthehighstreet.com, could be a saviour for partied-out guests. £8.50.

10. Metal signs


If you’re having a woodland wedding, guide guests with fabulously retro metal signs, then hang them in your home as a souvenir of your big day for years to come. This Dotcomgiftshop version is just £4.95.
