As you may have noticed, I’m a big fan of the boho trend. It’s been around for a while now and I don’t see its popularity waning anytime soon. That’s fine by me – I love finding new ways to interpret this trend.
In general, boho is a look that tends to be associated with summer. While it’s perfect for laidback outdoor celebrations in the sun, boho can be cosy too. Given the year-round availability of dried flowers and pampas grass, it’s a wonder we don’t see more boho winter weddings! Here’s how to style yours…
1. Pick the Right Palette
The various shades of ochre, terracotta and pink synonymous with the boho look work amazingly well with winter-appropriate colours such as crimson, burgundy and brown. If colour frightens you, make sure you read How to Plan a Colourful Wedding.
2. Layer Textures and Fabrics
Layering is key if you want to create a warm winter boho look. Try combining sheepskins, wool throws and lots of cushions to make any seating as cosy and inviting as possible. Fabrics like tweed and linen are perfect for adding texture and warmth. I use the same principle when I’m styling tables. Think warm wood tones paired with textured fabrics and dried flowers.
3. Add Candlelight
Candlelight is essential for a warm winter glow. Whether you opt for candelabras, hanging votives, pillar candles, lanterns or simple tapers, it takes more candles than you think to really make an impact. The good news is soft flickering light is universally flattering and incredibly atmospheric.
Dreaming of a Boho Winter Wedding?
So, there you have it! Three quick tips to help you style a boho winter wedding. And remember, if you love this look, don’t be put off by the fact it’s popular. As I’ve said before, trends don’t matter, it’s what you do with them that counts! One of my biggest passions is helping couples put their own spin on a popular look. When you incorporate details or design elements that reflect your personality, when your wedding tells a story through its styling or overall look, the fact it’s trendy becomes irrelevant.
