#adoretip | BOHO 101

Hi friends. 👋 I'm sure you've heard the hot word right now. "BOHO". We have a lot of dresses we think are perfect for the boho bride! Let's take a minute and explain what boho means, and to see where you fall on the "boho scale!"

"Boho" is an abbreviation for Bohemian. 🌿 This style has been associated with the hippies of the 60's and 70's, but has evolved since and has started incorporating other elements as well.  From what we see, boho is like a return to our roots and to nature.  Boho style boasts a lot of earthy elements, complete with neutral colors and greenery abound.  Many times the neutral colors are layered with just a small pop of muted color, also layered in different textures.  Think crochet, macrame, velvet, denim, florals, sued, layered rugs  and even patchwork or flannels. Take some of these gorgeous textures & colors, mix them in the combination that makes YOU feel grounded, and you've got total boho vibes.  When adding these elements to your decor, you will find a lot of wood and greenery, paired with vintage ceramics, maybe some gold accents and fun details! ✨


If you're that bride that likes fun, quirky details...you can pull that off with most wedding styles - but especially boho since it's very unique to you!

Some popular colors we have seen over the last year with the boho vibe are blush, gold, navy and green.  💐 Upcoming colors that we have been seeing used and asked about more this year are terra-cotta, copper, rust and mustard.  Still very earthy colors but have a little stronger pop of color.

Can you see it now? Got a good feel for those "boho" vibes? 🌿

Now let's talk about the dress. 👰 A boho wedding dress is unique, there may be elements of a traditional bridal gown, but with a touch of whimsy - big bold, floral lace, flowy skirts with blush & champagne undertones. Some of our most popular dresses definitely fall into this category!. We are the exclusive Central Illinois retailer for a gorgeous boho dress designer, Madi Lane Bridal. Check out some of their styles HERE!


A boho wedding dress is typically going to have a nice flow to the fabric. They are dreamy, effortless, sometimes whimsical, and with graphic lace.  Many boho bride opt against ivory on ivory, but instead go with nude underlays to make the details on the lace really pop!
