The Bohemian Wedding Dress
A true bohemian is defined as "a wanderer; living a socially unconventional life". However, when it comes to modern bohemian wedding dresses, contemporary brides tend to choose laced wedding dresses that channel a sort of effortlessness with an added polish.
Whether you go for the lace, floral, printed, or opt for the more demure tulle wedding gown, here are some key elements of a Bohemian bridal gown worth considering:
- The style embodies the carefree spirit in you
- The style is effortlessly elegant without looking tardy or careless
- Features unfussy and unadorned silhouettes
- Think all things lace, crochet, or embroidery
