How to start a Boho Wedding?


Have you been dreaming of the perfect boho wedding but with so much choice out there you don’t know where to start?


We suggest starting with your colour scheme or theme first. This is the overarching element for the whole wedding. After you have decided on the colours, atmosphere and decor, the rest will fall into place. You will be inspired by your chosen wedding colours to pick your florals, bridesmaids dresses and table decor. Your choice of ambiance and atmosphere will help guide your choices for table and chair options, how relaxed you want your reception to be, and the venue where you want to celebrate your wedding.


Answering a few questions might make it easier for you to define your wedding style and therefore help you make your choices when first starting your wedding planning journey:


  • What style do you lean towards? Vintage, romantic, Natural or colourful?

  • Where do you vision your wedding to be held? Beach, Gardens, Barn, Tipi, Manor, Church, Cottage?

  • What season do you want to get married in? This will guide your choice of indoor or outdoor venue, and might help you choose your colour palette.

  • What would be your choice of food? Is it a more formal wedding breakfast, a buffet style, food trucks or a specific cuisine style that you love?

  • What decor do you envision? Is it something you want to DIY yourself, or are there certain elements in mind you want to include such as rugs, carpets, lanterns, macrame, wicker, feathers, dream catchers, greenery or flowers?

  • What wedding dress to pick? If you have chosen the time of year, your venue and your wedding style, it might make it easier to find a wedding dress to compliment these.


Planning a wedding is exciting with endless opportunities, so don't think you have to make up your mind and book all your vendors as soon as you’ve picked a wedding date! We suggest booking your wedding stylist, venue and photographer first. Once you have secured your wedding stylist, it is a great idea to work together in choosing your other suppliers. By having your stylist with you when choosing your florals, invitations and table decor etc, you can pick the perfect items to create a matching and cohesive aesthetic throughout your whole wedding.
