A true bohemian is defined as “a wanderer; living a socially unconventional life.” According to Merriam Webster, boho bridal has turned towards festival dressing, laissez-faire slips, and gauzy separates rather than all things irreverent and atypical. Coachella-inspired aisles are slowly dwindling in favor of regal affairs and fashion-forward glam; in the process, bohemian bridal has taken on new forms of irreverence, and an added polish.
BOHO WEDDING DRESSES
Opt for the unconventional in the form of delicate laces, gossamer meshes, and floral motifs for an overall organic feel that is effortless and inspired—be it for your upcoming woodland, beach, or countryside celebration.
Here are some looks to shop now for the boho brides that are not-so-basic.
First, this delicate embroidery and a blouson bodice feels effortless and romantic.
Alon Livne White
Turn up the volume on ruffles and high collars; add an all-over lace hat while you’re at it.
Boho bridal is best served in sheer lace and figure-skimming silhouettes, like this dress.
Opting for a dress with no waistline is a fashion risk worth taking—if the silhouette is luxe in feel and isn’t too voluminous.
Vine motifs read “boho” in all the right ways, and desert, beach, and warm weather weddings are the ideal setting for sheer skirts.
Lace insert godets on a sexy slip dress make this gown feel more down to earth and less Studio 54.
Dolce & Gabbana
Even though this dress is midi, it still is bridal. Floral embroidery in a midi length is perfect for a spring or fall garden wedding and will look just as chic with a veil.
Claudia Llagostera Atelier
Airy and gauzy fabrics are boho bridal material. Finish the look with a straw hat and go barefoot if you dare.
Be a true bohemian, and be yourself. Go sheer, show off an enviable frame, and opt for an epic train.

Finally, get inspired by your destination of choice; choose lace patterns that hearken to the interiors and architecture of your venue. For example, floral embroideries that speak to the flora and fauna of your destination.
