A guest post with some beautiful inspiration for the ‘boho bride’ from Stephanie Saunders of Stephanie Saunders Flowers…
It’s not that often I get a bride come to me and say “I don’t want a bouquet”, when we start our initial consultation. Most girls can’t wait to tell me what they want to carry down the aisle and they can spend most of our hour together doing so. But not this bride…
Flowers For The Boho Bride
The feel of her wedding day is very relaxed, very natural and very boho!!! The boho bride is on the up, and we have fashion to thank for the rising popularity of floral crowns and head garlands which these brides favour over traditional bouquets.
There is the dainty option… using teeny tiny flowers and wiring them into a daisy chain type garland that sits prettily on top of loose tousled hair. This is probably best suited to bridesmaids because although it’s very pretty, it’s also a little understated, and for a bride, a tad underwhelming! No… you boho brides need to have a statement piece… a crowning glory!! Big and blowsy is the way to go…
To accessorise your look you could add a wrist corsage to tie in with your chosen blooms.
The relaxed feel works seamlessly with venue styling too… natural, loose, effortless. Use milk churns and wooden crates spilling over with flowers to decorate your space. Heads of seasonal flowers dotted about your tables are understated yet charming in a boho fashion. Pretty garlands of gypsophila are simple and will add a dainty charm to desert tables or even your top table.
The key to achieving the perfect boho look is to have a good mixture of colours… often bright shades work well with this look, although my favoured pastel shades never fail to look sensational! There should be no formal design as such, in fact, most of the time when setting up for such weddings it’s very much a matter of placing things where they look best.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with colours and textures… go with the flow and have faith that your florist has it covered. Boho brides after all, are renowned for their laid back attitude!!
