#adoretip | BOHO 101

Hi friends. I'm sure you have heard the hot word right now.."BOHO". And we use it too, as we have a lot of dresses that we consider perfect for a boho bride. So, we thought we would take a minute and help explain what boho means, as some people aren't sure, and to see where you fall! Maybe you are full on boho, or just a touch of boho.

"Boho" is really an abbreviation for "Bohemian".  This style has been associated with the hippies of the 60's and 70's, but incorporating other elements as well.  From what we see, boho is like a return to our roots and nature.  Boho style boasts a lot of earthy elements, complete with neutral colors.  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, suede and even patchwork or flannels. Take some of these, mix them in the right combination that makes you feel grounded, while and is beautiful & stunning to look at.  When adding these elements to decor, you will find a lot of wood, paired with lots of greenery.

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 earthy colors but have a little stronger pop of color.

Can you see it now? Can you get a good feel for what we mean when we talk about "boho"?

Now let's talk about dresses. Boho wedding dresses. Some of the dresses we have in stock right now that are most popular definitely fall into this category for a boho bride.  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 are not going to be ivory on ivory, but with nude underlays to make the details on the lace really shine.  For some examples, CLICK HERE to see our Boho Dresses.
