Style Spotlight: A Guide to Planning an Elegant Boho Wedding
Hannah Dickerman, Lead Planner, Elle Gray Events
A huge reason why we love wedding planning is seeing each couple’s individual style shine through. Picking a theme, color scheme, or vibe - and then styling it - can seem overwhelming. If bohemian vintage style speaks to you but you don’t know where to start, we’ve got a few tips for you.
Choosing a Timeless Color Palette
Opt for a soft and muted color palette that combines vintage charm with bohemian elegance. You want to stick with warm neutrals and deeper colors, and lean away from cooler tones. Consider shades like ivory, blush pink, sage green, and dusty blue. These colors evoke a vintage feel and provide a beautiful backdrop for boho-inspired details.
The Ambience of your Venue
A bohemian, vintage wedding can be absolutely stunning in a variety of venues. Whether it’s inside or outdoors, pick a venue that will blend seamlessly with your color palette, or provides color inspiration. We love the exposed brick and metal at Armature Works for that warm, cozy vibe that goes perfectly with a moody neutral color palette.
Play With Different Textures
Mixing a variety of textures into your details is a surefire way to get that classic boho look. Wood, textiles, grasses, and touches of gold or silver all compliment each other beautifully. For that eclectic touch, bring in elements like antique lace tablecloths, heirloom china, and vintage furniture. This fusion of styles creates a visually rich and inviting atmosphere.
Embrace wild and whimsical floral arrangements with a variety of textures and colors. Incorporate both bohemian elements like pampas grass and feathers, along with vintage blooms like peonies and roses. Place these arrangements in vintage vases or mismatched antique containers for added character.
Bride and Groom Attire
Dress the bride and groom in attire that merges boho and vintage aesthetics. For the bride, a lace or crochet wedding dress with a flowing silhouette for that bohemian charm,, while vintage-inspired accessories like pearls can add a touch of vintage elegance. For the groom, consider a colored suit or tux that will compliment the over all color palette. Colors like navy, sage, tan, or even black, always look stunning.
