Are you looking to plan a wedding with a difference? Bohemian weddings are a more carefree alternative to any other type of wedding, so if you’re looking to release your free spirit on your wedding day, read on!

Think about a theme

When do you feel happiest, at the beach, at a festival, at a funfair? With a bohemian wedding the possibilities for your theme are endless. Think about the type of experience you want to recreate on the day and you can then start to think about your style. Your chosen style can be incorporated into everything from your stationery to your centre pieces and favours.

Be creative with your wedding dress

The beauty of a bohemian wedding is that you have fewer restrictions when it comes to how you style yourself. Try something different with your hair and set yourself no limitations when it comes to accessorizing. When it comes to your dress, why not try some alterations to give it a unique, personalised touch? The way you style yourself is a great opportunity to make your wedding photos stand out. If you’re after some inspiration, search for bohemian weddings on Pinterest or get some inspiration from other weddings on Rock my Wedding.

Select your venue carefully

The venue will most likely mean something special to you. When considering different venues, which one gives you that warm feeling inside? Go with your instinct! Make sure there’s plenty of space for you and your guests to express yourselves and achieve that free-spirited feeling.

Get your mentality right

Weddings can be stressful to organise and even more stressful on the day. How are your nerves? In order to get the complete bohemian experience, your mind set needs to be right! Make sure you’re as relaxed and carefree as possible when your big day arrives. Why wake up stressing, when life is a blessing? Quotes such as this can help put you in the right frame of mind and can even be used as a theme for your wedding stationery and table names. If everything is planned in advance, there will be no need to worry.

Make sure your bohemian wedding is one to remember! Still looking for the right venue? Why not consider holding it here at West Park?
