Bohemian Wedding Flowers:

How To Choose The Perfect Blooms For Your Big Day

Flowers are an important addition to weddings as they set the mood for the event as guests walk in. The Boho wedding style is a popular wedding theme combining 1960s and early 1970s trends with a modern fair. This style ranges from simple to artsy, making it ideal for couples who do not want a traditional celebration.

While traditional wedding flowers are cascade-style bouquets, the Boho style breaks the rule and displays the unconventional side.

The Importance Of Choosing The Right Flowers For Your Bohemian Wedding Theme

Choosing your wedding flowers is an exciting part of your wedding planning but is more challenging than it sounds, especially for a Bohemian-themed wedding. The right flowers for your wedding theme will impact the mood of the day, hence the need to get it right.

Your wedding photos and videos are a significant element as they capture the moments of your wedding. Through the right flowers and arrangement, you can make your photos and videos stand out and make an excellent memory to share with your kids in the future.

While many people do not appreciate wedding flowers for their fragrance, getting the right bohemian flowers with good fragrances will add freshness to your wedding and take your reception to the next level, as your guests will be more relaxed and comfortable when surrounded by good scents.

Lastly, flowers are a bridge to your wedding colors. Linen, your gown, and bridesmaid dresses are insufficient to bring together your wedding theme, and flowers highlight the theme elegantly. The same goes for other accessories such as shoes, ties, and jewelry for both the bride and groom. When all of these elements come together in a harmonious way, it creates a stunning visual experience for you and your guests. For example, if your wedding has a bohemian or rustic theme, you might consider engagement rings and wedding bands with earthy tones or natural elements like wood or stones. Alternatively, if your wedding has a more modern or minimalist vibe, sleek and simple rings in metallic tones could be a great choice.

Matching your rings to your wedding theme colors isn't the only consideration, though. You'll also want to think about how the rings will look alongside your other wedding jewelry, such as your earrings, necklace, and bracelet. And of course, you'll want to make sure the rings you choose reflect your personal style and taste as a couple.

Whether you pick five colors or two, the proper floral arrangement and design will come together to bring the style you want for your wedding.

Talk With A Florist Beforehand To Achieve Your Bohemian Wedding Flower Vision

Talking to a wedding florist is the best way to achieve your Bohemian wedding flower vision. You can ask for recommendations from newlyweds, browse magazines or search on social media. Settling on a florist 12 months before your wedding date is ideal, given the time and effort needed to create the flower arrangements.

An early appointment will also help you understand the Florist’s work. Your florist’s skills should be beyond basic as you want someone with good coordination of your theme. If working with a wedding planner, a regular florist will comfortably do the trick.

Determine Your Flower Budget For A Bohemian Wedding

Knowing how much you will spend on your wedding flowers is essential for good planning. A Knot 2021 Real Weddings Study revealed that most couples spend 7% of their budget on flowers. However, as we enter 2023, the percentage for flower budgets is on the rise. Typically, 10 - 15% of your total budget should be set aside for flowers. The amount spent on wedding flowers may vary based on the type of flowers, wedding season, and arrangement style. As a new study revealed, the industry standard has been around 10% of the overall budget, so a £35,000 wedding would have a floral budget of approximately £3,500. However, if flowers are a priority for your big day, and you have high expectations, you may want to allocate up to 15% of your budget. Keep in mind that today's £3,500 is not the same as two years ago.

The Timeless Flower Crown

Flower crowns in colorful blooms or greenery are a recent trend in weddings, and with your hair loosely styled down your back, you can achieve a poetic fairy look. For a vintage look, you can match your hair with a bouquet of beautiful flowers, including roses, anemones, or ranunculus.

The Most Subtle Jewelry

Wearing subtle jewelry at a Bohemian wedding is advisable. You can adorn Delilah hoop earrings to add a bohemian touch to your wedding gown. To pair your earring, opt for a wrist corsage matching the bridesmaid bouquets or groom's boutonniere.

A Pair Of Eyeglasses To Frame Your Face

Your eyeglasses can be a great addition to a Bohemian-style wedding dress and a beautiful accessory to express your personality and style on your big day. By pairing fashionable and chic frames with Bohemian flower bouquets, you can create a unique and personalized look. To achieve this, it's important to select bridal eyeglasses with frames that complement the flowers you've chosen. This will help tie your look together and create a cohesive style that will make a lasting impression on your guests. Whether you opt for bold and colorful frames or subtle and elegant ones, your glasses can add an extra touch of sophistication to your bridal look. So don't shy away from embracing your glasses on your wedding day and incorporate them into your wedding style for a truly unique and memorable look.

Some flowers like the aster, limonium, and hypericum will be available throughout the seasons.

Knowing the trendy flowers in the season around your wedding date is ideal for remaining stylish. While autumn is the best season for a bohemian wedding, you can schedule your wedding in other seasons as long as you can attain a woodland-styled look with your options.


Wedding flowers are an important asset in bringing out your Bohemian style. One way to achieve this is by dressing in Bohemian-themed accessories and linen. Given the dynamics of a Bohemian-themed wedding, set aside a budget and contact your florist early enough to get a better vision for the arrangements before D-day.
