Top 10 Boho Style Wedding Dresses
How do you define boho style?
For me, it is a way of dressing that draws influence from hippy styles that developed in the middle to the late 1960s. When I think of women in the public eye who epitomized boho style in the early 2000s, I immediately think of supermodel Kate Moss and Sienna Miller. With their flowing dresses, rock n’ roll’ beachy hair, and laid back approach, they were undoubtedly were the Queens of boho style
It was only natural that the boho style would become a big trend in the world of weddings and for many years, it was very fashionable. Although the trend has waned in recent years, thanks to the boho vibe that featured in Spring/Summer 2015 collections such as Chloé, (where Claire Waight-Keller, their Creative Director, sent models down the catwalk in pretty lace dresses, and flowing fabrics), I think it is set to be big in bridal once again.
So, how do you know if a boho style wedding dress is right for you? Well, I think would you know long before you get engaged. After all, if you wear hippy style clothes all year round, love Glastonbury, and adored Kate Moss’s and Sienna Miller’s boho style in the early 2000s. then a boho style wedding dress is a MUST for you.
I think boho style bridal dresses work best at beach and country weddings, rather than at a city wedding (although there is no reason why you can’t wear a boho style wedding dress) for one. I LOVE (if practical) the idea of boho brides kicking off their wedding shoes or sandals after the ceremony and running barefoot through fields with their new husband. Before I get completely carried away, here are my top 10 boho style wedding dresses.
