What Is Boho Design?

Short for the word “bohemian,” boho or boho-chic refers to a style that focuses on laid-back, artful beauty. It first took the world by storm in late 1800s France as a counterculture that celebrated unconventional and nomadic lifestyles. Boho style is eclectic, free-spirited, and a celebration of the unexpected.

Key elements of boho design include organic fabrics, textures, and patterns with whimsical, romantic color schemes often found in nature. Palettes can range from vibrant and vivid hues found in the tropics to neutral and understated tones reminiscent of a serene snowy scene. Layering is another crucial element of boho design with mix-and-match patterns and motifs, contrasting colors, and varying texture.

In terms of boho weddings, there are tons of different ways to incorporate a boho-chic look. Floral invitations in hues like blush, burgundy, terracotta, and beige are a big hit for those who want a subtle and romantic aesthetic. On the other end of the spectrum, bold and colorful patterns make for a maximalist take on the boho design trend. 

Earthy palettes are perfect for National Park weddings while turquoise and white color schemes are ideal for tropical destination weddings. Green and taupe boho themes are also ideal for forest nuptials and saying “I do” in a field of wildflowers.

Boho wedding invitations aren’t just about the design — you can also play with your word choices to expand on this dreamy theme and really bring it to life. If you want to include bohemian-inspired phrasing as part of your invites, consider referencing worldly elements, organic themes, and an adventurous spirit.

Here are some wording ideas for your boho wedding invitations:

  • Our love is gentle and imperfect, just like the world around us. Come celebrate our unique story as we tie the knot.
  • We’ve seen the world together and now it’s time to create our own little slice of paradise. Please come along as we join hands and celebrate our union.
  • We’ve journeyed to the depths of rocky canyons and the spires of skyscrapers, falling more deeply in love along the way. We invite you to celebrate our wedding day as we honor our love and connect with all of you.
  • The best love stories are as old as time. Please join us as celebrate our devotion to each other and promise to continue our lifelong journey.
  • We invite you to witness our union and hold space for our journey of love, forever and ever.
