Weddings are romantic in nature, so it is no surprise that the Bohemian, or better known as BOHO, style from the 1970’s has made a comeback in the 2020’s. BOHO was a trend that started in the late 60’s and into the 70’s. This simple and care-free design is a slight move from the rustic wedding trend over the past few years. For Boho Wedding Decorations, think of soft romance with lots of loose layers and rich colors and you will have a perfect BOHO wedding.

BOHO Wedding Decoration Colors:
Colors will play an important part to create a BOHO look. The good news is almost any rich color will play nicely into the BOHO feel, such as a golden yellow, rust, clay, navy blue, turquoise, and jade. Have fun with incorporating lots of color with a mixture of warm and cool tones. Just adding a multicolored throw rug at the altar can really add a little BOHO flair.
Macramé screams BOHO. The best way to incorporate macramé as part of your Boho wedding decorations is at your altar/arch piece. Macramé can be expensive to purchase and timely to make however, vintage pieces can be found at reasonable prices. We’ve searched antique stores and rummaged through thrift stores for true vintage 1970’s macramé pieces. Think out of the box when searching. Our most amazing find was a 1920’s ivory silk shawl with 5” fringe and a 1960’s macramé 1’ x 6’ piece. These are a great addition to throw over the back of a Peacock Chair or Settee for the sweetheart table. The real trick with BOHO is to build layers upon layers so do not just think of one layer but remember to add several layers with different styles and textures.
What is fun about BOHO is it still incorporates the rustic style we all have come to enjoy. Farm tables, wood chairs, wine barrels, and wood arches can all still be incorporated into a BOHO theme.
However, another true BOHO Wedding Decoration is wicker/rattan, either in its natural state or in a white. If you are envisioning a garden feel for your BOHO wedding with flowers in your hair, then think of white wicker. It is a perfect blend of garden and BOHO. From arches to seating, wicker and be a fun and new way to decorate.
The most popular chairs for the sweetheart or head tables are the original 1970’s Wicker Rattan Peacock Chair. This grander than grand natural wood chairs truly live up to their name. Their large high round backs are as majestic as a peacock. Add flowers or a shawl over the back and your décor screams BOHO.
Tabletop Boho Décor: Have fun with colors
Linen: For farm tables we suggest either lace/ macramé runners or a colored chiffon runner which will add that true romantic warmth needed for your BOHO wedding. For all other tables, bring in your rich primary color tone for the tablecloth with a lace white or ivory overlay.
Dishware: Plain cream or white plates directly on the table tend to lend to that care-free lifestyle. Bring in the colors with vintage color glassware, all sizes and styles.
Centerpieces: Candles – all sizes and shapes either on wood or gold candlesticks or directly on the table. The point is a mix match of candles and colors. Simple bouquet of loose colorful flowers, pompass grass or white baby’s breath in terra cotta pots or a variety of small colored glass bottles are the perfect blend for a BOHO table. Want it to feel a little more tropical add rattan fans into your centerpieces.
Whatever your budget or style, if you are thinking BOHO wedding decorations, then just remember the real décor key is a free and easy style with rich colors and eclectic design. Boho Wedding Decorations gives a bride the freedom to be as creative and as unique as she is. Have fun with it!
