This wedding is full of ways to incorporate bohemian wedding ideas into a traditional wedding. The colors, the florals, the bridesmaids’ dresses, and the decor are all reminiscent of the era. The groom’s family estate was filled with secret gardens surrounding a home from the 1600s. It made a stunning backdrop for this gorgeous wedding.

An Updated Rustic Bohemian Wedding Theme

What a fabulous event! There are so many boho wedding ideas that aren’t overdone. Here are a few favorites!

  • Garden flowers fit in well with the theme. The loosely arranged fresh-picked blooms are perfect in both deep and pastel colors.
  • Navy is a fabulous modern neutral, and the groomsmen truly rock the look.
  • Boho wedding hair is often worn down in loose curls, and the softness of Lauren’s hair is so perfect!
  • Flowers can adorn your cake. The florals and gold leafing adds modernity with just the right touch of boho.
  • The wooden backdrop and eclectic seating for the reception (also used as a photo booth!) add to the comfy, casual vibe that bohemian wedding ideas often incorporate.

Did you catch the bourbon bottle?

It’s a southern tradition that in order to keep the rain away on a wedding day, a bride and groom must bury a bottle of bourbon upside down a month before the wedding. It looks like it worked for this couple! Such a fun tradition.
