About Kelly (Founder and Editor in Chief)
Hi I’m Kelly and I LOVE weddings!

I love seeing people’s individuality and I love it when a couple really gets to express their personalities through their wedding day. Every weddings are amazing, they don’t own to be fancy, or full of details, I just love seeing two people truly in love marry each other……….that’s what a wedding is really about!
I live in Sheffield in the UK, but was originally born in London and brought up in Cornwall. I live with my husband Nik, and my boy Dexter.
Here’s how you can update your rustic glance for a more bohemian wedding style.
A rustic bridal bouquet can be a lush arrangement of blooms for a shabby chic style or a collection of wildflowers for something more country.
The bohemian bridal bouquet has oversized flowers, in a cascading shape, and each flower is chosen for a special meaning, making a bride’s bouquet more personal. “It can feel eccentric,” says Amy, “but it should be an intentional eccentricity that provides consistency as well as insight into who the couple is.”
The best way to set the wedding’s tone early on is to select a wedding invitation that truly reflects the glance and feel you’re looking for.
Rustic wedding invitations may feature bold flowers as an accent or framing the wording, wood grain in the design or a chalkboard-style font. You’ll see more mixing of font styles on a bohemian-styled wedding invitation, along with feather motifs, dreamcatchers, crystal or geode designs and more patterns and geometric shapes repeated.
Renting couches and comfy chairs and placing them in an outdoor setting has been a must-have for creating that lounge-like feel at rustic weddings.
Bohemian weddings desire to own the lounge glance too, but instead of furniture they’re more likely to own decorative rugs and pillows scattered around the outdoor setting for picnic-style lounging.
You may also discover teepee structures on the grounds to fit two or more guests comfortably.
Details: Containers and vessels
Mason jars are synonymous with rustic weddings. Couples own used them in every sorts of ways – to put candles, drinks and wedding favors. At a bohemian wedding, skip the mason jars and use little glass fishbowls to hold candles, glass test tubes for favors and other glass containers sealed with a cork or fabric to contain the items within.
Naked cakes exploded as the cake of choice at rustic weddings, but for the bohemian couple, cakes are getting more coverage, via icing.
Buttercream and fondant are boho approved, and you’ll discover couples looking to express themselves in their choice of wedding cake too. Semi-naked cakes, where you can barely see the layers of cake beneath the frosting are an update to the naked cake. Wedding cakes with geode or crystal decorations – made from sugar crystals – are a nod to the themes quartz crystal inspirations. For a more traditional design, genuine (and large) blooms may adorn each tier or lay on the diagonal in a garland style.

Details: Décor from above
Lights strung over tables, as either strings of lights bistro-style or a chandelier in a barn, reflect the rustic glance we own every grown to love, but opt for fabric items to hang from above with dreamcatchers or God’s Eyes in a range of sizes and colors.
Each type of rustic wedding has a unique glance that is enhanced by the linens chosen for reception tables and other wedding details.
For example, lace will create a vintage vibe, while checkered red and white tablecloths own a more laid-back country feel.
For a bohemian glance, a couple should select woven fabrics, such as macramé and crocheted textiles. Macramé can be used as a wall hanging backdrop for your wedding ceremony, or to frame your wedding cake.
Or hang potted plants in the reception room, or tent, in crotched holders.
A rustic wedding hairstyle may include a little cluster of flowers, loose waves or tight braids, but a bride planning a bohemian wedding will opt for numerous flowers woven into her hair, or a braid that is looser, such as a fishtail braid or a four strand braid.
Vintage-styled jewelry is a favorite choice for rustic brides and grooms for their wedding rings, and the bride’s day-of jewelry, with Edwardian and Deco pieces being fairly favorite.
Little and large quartz crystal necklaces grace the necklines of the bohemian bride, as well as turquoise jewelry and metallic floral garlands, headbands and crowns that reflect inspiration from nature.
Unlike rustic weddings where burlap, twine and even horseshoes may accent various wedding details, bohemian weddings often feature feathers as the accent of choice. Grooms may opt to wear a feather boutonniere, patterned feathers can adorn each put setting, a bride will wear a feathered headpiece, garlands of feathers could grace the ceiling, and dipped in gold or glitter feathers can decorate the wedding cake!
Garlands, wheat, wildflowers and succulents are staples of rustic wedding reception tables.
At a bohemian wedding, reception centerpieces pack a punch with lush blooms in a range of colors from wealthy jewel tones to soft pastels.
Vessels may be set on runners of macramé or decorative woven textiles.
