When it comes to creating a wedding day with a boho vibe, it only takes a couple of key elements to make it happen.  There are the common, standard boho details you'll notice: dreamcatchers, flowers crowns and lace dresses. And then there are some ideas that seem to have gained popularity lately, like rugs, pillows and raw crystal geodes. Below, we're sharing just what to get and exactly how to style it to create your dream boho celebration!

Incorporate Rugs into the Setting:

One of the best ways create a cosy, boho atmosphere is with   Moroccan rugs. Layer a couple down the aisle or use them in a lounge or other area where you'd like to draw a little attention! They'll definitely add a nice dose of colour and texture and help take your boho celebration to the next level.  

Check out our collection of Moroccan rugs to start shopping this look!

Wear a Flower Crown:

It doesn't get more boho than a   flower crown, and we don't think we'll ever tire of this look! There are lots of styles and scales to choose from, so pick the one that best matches your style and wedding day aesthetic.

Find a Creative Use for Dreamcatchers:

The term "boho" was practically invented upon the notion of   dreamcatchers and they are the perfect decor item to incorporate into your wedding. Use them as a backdrop or as a creative take on your seating chart. You can buy them pre-made or make your own with an embroidery hoop decorated with   yarn and  ribbon.

Create Lounge Areas with Mismatched Pillows:

This next design element idea teams up well with a good, patterned rug. Adding a few   boho cushions to the setting can give your wedding a fun pop of colour and help your guests feel right at home. Create a comfy lounge area with a few furniture pieces and pile on the pillows. Your guests will definitely flock to this stylish, cozy vignette all night long!

Wear a Vintage Lace Dress:

Classic boho brides can typically be found rocking a non-traditional   vintage lace dress. There are lots of styles to choose from and the designs can range from casual to more on the bridal-side. The best part is that you can really make any vintage dress your own with a couple of (professional) alterations.

Mix in some Raw Gems and Geodes:

A fun styling element that seems to be on fire these days are   geodes. These raw crystals look great on tablescapes or simply used for styled photos (think your ring or invite suite). But take it one step further and incorporate them into your bouquet if you so dare!
