We’re obsessed with carefree, romantic, boho wedding dresses here at Hitched.

Boho weddings are relaxed and often outdoors, with rich and earthy jewel tones and plenty of florals. If thoughts of drapery, pampas grass wedding décor and a magical indie vibe fill your heart with joy, then a boho wedding could be for you.

Boho style wedding dresses are the perfect option for carefree, casual brides who still want to invest in a gown, but want to make it feel a little more ‘them’. They also look wonderful with more laid-back boho wedding hairstyles, such as loose waves, plaits, and floral accessories (or even real flowers!).

The good news is that boho wedding dresses come in a wide range of price points, whether you want to stick to the high street, opt for something more mid-range, or go all out with a high end designer. The options are endless!

Browse our selection of the best boho wedding dresses, choose your favourite and pair it with a flower crown and bare feet. Your inner hippy will be dancing with joy.

Learn More About Boho Wedding Dresses

Want to find out more about bohemian wedding dresses? We asked boho bridal expert Megan Ziems, Founder and Creative Director of bohemian bridal brand Grace Loves Lace, everything you could need to know about a boho wedding dress...

What is a Boho Wedding Dress?

A boho wedding dress is a relaxed, laid-back style of wedding dress - often with a romantic 70s feel to it. Think crocheted lace, scalloped or wavy hems, draped or balloon sleeves and lots of casual, effortless detail. If you consider yourself a bit of a hippy at heart, a boho wedding dress is going to be the perfect pick for you.

“Boho gowns cater to the relaxed and carefree bride – designed for comfort and infused with soul and originality,” says Founder and Creative Director of boho bridal brand Grace Loves Lace, Megan Ziems. “It’s very much about the bride expressing her innate style and personality by wearing a gown as unique as her. In most instances, boho wedding gowns take a “non-traditional” approach, and often feature elements like visual and detailed lace, bell sleeves, a mix of fabrications and free-flowing silhouettes that allow for movement.

“From the beginning, the GRACE signature aesthetic has been luxury you can dance in. We are known for the way we layer and mix fabrics and trims in unique combinations and silhouettes that are comfortable and allow you to move.

“Our gowns cater to the relaxed, laid-back bride as they are handmade with lightweight fabrics with no restrictive elements like zips, boning or heavy materials – perfect for the boho bride!”

How Do I Style a Boho Wedding Dress?

If anyone knows how to style a boho wedding dress, it’s Megan: “When it comes to styling a boho wedding gown, I tell my brides this: the gown is an extension of you, who you are and what you stand for.

“Your styling should be the same! So, whether you want your gown to speak for itself and opt for more understated styling – think barefoot, loose curls, a flower crown, or statement earrings – or if you’re really keen to lean into the boho vibe with boots, a hat and or statement sunglasses; do what feels right for you!”

Can I Wear a Bohemian Wedding Dress to a Formal Wedding?

Your wedding, your rules! You can wear what you like to your wedding - but if you're conscious of picking a more modest dress, there are definitely lots of more traditional-leaning boho wedding dresses out there. You could also always invest in a bridal cover up or jacket for the ceremony, and unveil your bohemian beauty later on in the day!

“The thing I love about what we do here at GRACE is that we push the boundaries of tradition and encourage our brides to do the same. I like to remind our brides that there are no rules when it comes to planning the wedding of their dreams – it’s all about doing what feels right for the couple and making decisions that make them feel like their most authentic selves when they say ‘I do’," says Grace.

“So, to answer your question, I say heck yes to boho gowns at any kind of wedding! If you feel a boho style is ‘the one’ for you, go for it! You can always incorporate hints of the bohemian style into different areas of the wedding, through florals and foliage, live music and the colour scheme so that there’s a sense of cohesiveness throughout the day. Elements like these can help to transform a more traditional venue or wedding style into something more effortless and carefree!”

What Should I Consider When Buying a Bohemian Wedding Dress?

Think about your venue first of all - if you're going boho with your bridal look, you want to make sure your wedding venue has some of the same charms, otherwise you could look a bit at-odds with your setting. Rustic wedding venues are a great choice if you want that free-spirited feel. You should also think of the time of year - if you're having a winter wedding you're going to want your boho bridal gown to have long sleeves or you'll likely freeze!

“My biggest recommendation when purchasing a boho gown is to make a decision on length based on the shoes you will/ will not be wearing! If you plan to be barefoot or in a sandal, ensure you consider this when locking in your measurements – you don’t want to be tripping on your gown while trying to dance the night away barefoot!” Explains Megan.

“In addition, I think that a wedding dress should make you feel something – so consider this when locking in ‘The One’. Your gown needs that substance to it – you want it to be something you want to keep and be proud to hand down, be proud of how it’s designed, how it’s made, who made it, the quality of the fabric and construction, the skill that went into making and designing it.

“If you can find a dress that also makes sure you feel comfortable and is stretchy so you can move, hug the ones you love and most importantly dance in, then you're onto a winner!”

What does a boho wedding look like? ›

Bohemian, or boho, is a chic, vintage style that combines trends from the late 1960s and early 1970s with a bit of modern flair.

What do most brides wear under their dress? ›

What's more, your wedding gown might be luxurious and fancy, but your undergarments don't need to be. A bra that fits well and underwear that doesn't bunch, ride up, or produce panty lines are really all that's needed to look and feel your best. Additionally, shapewear is always an option if needed.

How many dresses do most brides try on? ›

On average, brides try on about 4–7 dresses, but we recommend no more than 10. The more wedding gowns you try on, the more confusing things may get. When the bridal gown selection is too big, brides tend to get overwhelmed and struggle to remember what the first gown they tried on looked like.

What is the difference between boho and bohemian design? ›

Urban boho adopts the most prominent elements of the bohemian style, such as rattan, macramé, and ethnic patterns on pillows and rugs. In addition to these, differently from classical bohemian interiors, urban boho adds modern and unexpected elements as well.

What is true Bohemian style? ›

Boho style is a free-spirited aesthetic that mixes different cultures and artistic expressions into an eclectic style with an emphasis on organic elements and nature. When putting together your boho style space, mixing patterns, metals, woods, materials, animal hides and trinkets from your travels is highly encouraged.

Are boho weddings still popular? ›

The boho aesthetic has been super popular in the past few years and it blends together natural, rustic, and vintage touches. I think it's time to say goodbye to boho-style weddings for now and I don't think we'll be seeing its crochet decor, pampas grass, and muted colors as we head into 2023.

What is a Wedding Garter? A wedding garter is a piece of lingerie typically worn by brides under their bridal gown. Its historical function is to hold stockings up, but nowadays it's more common to wear as a decorative novelty item for the traditional “garter toss.”

Do brides wear their dress all night? ›

Whilst many brides prefer to stay in their stunning bridal dresses for the whole day and night, others opt to change into an entirely new outfit for the evening's celebrations.

What size are most brides? ›

Bridal sizing isn't like typical street wear sizing. While you might be a size 4-6 in jeans, you're in fact a bridal size 8-10, and if you're a size 14-16, you're likely a 18-20. Don't worry about it–sizing is just a number! You'll likely see most of our samples in a bridal size 8, 10, 12, 18, 20 or 22 to try on.

Who usually buys the brides dress? ›

While this responsibility can vary from culture to culture, historically the bride's family will pay for her wedding dress and accessories. This includes everything from the dress itself to the veil and shoes.

Can you just go and try on wedding dresses? ›

Yes, you can try on wedding dresses without committing to a purchase, but we don't recommend going into a bridal salon unless you're seriously looking for a gown.
