We’re sharing 6 ways to tell if you’re a boho bride with styling ideas + wedding dress styles to get you started. At this point, you’re no stranger to wedding designer powerhouse Maggie Sottero Designs, right? We’ve selected a few gowns from their signature lines to show you how you can pull off a boho bridal look in six distinct looks, so check them out below:
1. You’re drawn to flowy wedding dresses.
We’re not just talking about any unique wedding dress. You’re looking for a gown that has character and thoughtfully designed details. Flowy skirts and beading make your heart sing, and you’re not keen on structured corset tops. Boho bride style is all about the effortless style: you want to move freely and dance the night away.
The gown on the top photo is Suzanne by Sottero and Midgley. Hands down, our favorite. Its cap sleeves in an ultra-flattering silhouette is a total winner for us. It features netting and laser-cut lace motifs, so the texture is super unique.
Wedding gown above is Evan by Sottero and Midgley: it’s a chic A-line wedding dress with eyelet lace and a sexy square back with POCKETS.
2. You love texture and unique details.
You can definitely see yourself in a lace gown and appreciate all the different details and designs a wedding gown can have: sparkling touches of beading, illusion backs or necklines, layers of tulle, eyelet lace, floral motifs and geometric patterns.
The bride above is wearing Phyllis by Maggie Sottero. It’s a dreamy tulle gown with an illusion back with Swarovski crystals, the perfect touch of sparkle.
3. Unruly and wild bouquets make your heart sing.
You might be pinning these bouquets without even noticing. You love foraged arrangements, wild shaped florals and appreciate all types of flowers and leaves.
4. You’re drawn to flower crowns or delicate hair accessories
Flower crowns and fresh floral combs, delicate brass wreaths and handmade hair accessories look beautiful with loose curls with your hair down or with a loose wispy braid. Am I speaking your language?
The bride above is wearing Bexley by Sottero and Midgley. Love this one for daytime weddings and for any bride who wasn’t considering lace but wanted a little zhush for her gown. It has geometric lace motifs over a sexy slip gown.
5. You want to feel sexy but stay true to your style.
The above says it all: you want to recognize yourself in your wedding photos. Boho wedding gowns have a soft look yet, they are still sexy. With strategic illusion details, flattering waistlines and statement backs, a boho bride knows she’s her sexiest when she’s comfy + confident.
The bride above is wearing a two-piece gown: Alita bodysuit with Ashby skirt, by Sottero and Midgley. The bodysuit top has beading and lace and the voluminous skirt has endless layers of tulle.
6. Your dream venue is somewhere outdoors.
You’d love to get married at a national park with a jaw-dropping setting, go to a beach paradise destination or say I Do under a starry night and twinkling lights. Boho wedding dresses are perfect for outdoor weddings and elopements. They aren’t so casual that they aren’t memorable, and they pack SO much more easily than a formal wedding dress, perfect for destination weddings.
Maggie Sottero Designs carry three labels that you’ll love if you’re a boho bride:
- Maggie Sottero: these are romantic wedding gowns with personality. If you love flowy skirts and/or lace, there are so many gems in this line you might have to try all of them on
- Sottero and Midgley: these gowns lean a little more towards glamorous, but if you love a good wow factor, chances are you’ll find your gown in this collection
- Rebecca Ingram: if you’re budget conscious and don’t want to compromise on style, then this line is a MUST regardless of your budget.
Bride Sarah above chose the Nola by Maggie Sottero for her wedding. If you need a quick turnaround for your wedding dress, bookmark this one. This boho bride chose a spaghetti-strap neckline with lace hem with tulle and satin.
