Finding Your Wild Side
2018 has seen the rise of the Bohemian Bride and it’s safe to say that this is a trend that we will be obsessed with for a long time to come!
The word bohemian can be defined as being socially unconventional & synonyms include, being a nonconformist, avant-garde, offbeat, off-centre, original, alternative, experimental, artistic or eccentric. In short, it’s clear that the bohemian trend is perfect for a bride looking to break some rules in order to embrace something different. The bohemian trend comes in many forms; we’ve put together a couple that we’re loving for brides everywhere.
Dainty & All Ladylike
Although this trend is a little unconventional, it doesn’t make it any less feminine or elegant. As you can see, this specific look encapsulates a more traditional silhouette but with a “twist” Whether it’s due to the inventive way the lace is used, the TYPE of lace used or the softness portrayed, this look screams feminine don’t’ you think?
Modern & Minimalistic
Who said bohemian can’t have a hint of modern as well? This clean minimalistic look still qualifies as bohemian inspired due to the strikingly innovative design used. The soft criss-cross draping incorporated in the blouson top adds to the feminine factor allowing for such a free-spirited feeling while making an absolute statement at the same time.
If you prefer you can do a the minimalistic look in the front and surprise your guests with an oppulent back as seen in the second featured dress.
The use of bold Crochet, Guipiere and Alencon lace is the perfect finish to enhance this boho-look. By further combining it with a contrastingly soft fabric to allow for beautiful movement and drapeability you’ll find that you end up with a stunningly balanced bohemian look.
Sexy and Daring
Another take on this trend is to embrace the sexy side of it, boho doesn’t necessarily only mean loosely fitted & flowy. It’s all in the details & in this case the lace details. Opt for a textured, crochet lace look beautifully incorporated into a fitted design. To create an even more unique look embrace the latest off-shoulder trend for a slightly more unconventional design. The bottom line is, we’re loving it!
To further embrace the bohemian look one can look at incorporating the following accessories in your wedding attire:
