1. Boho Chic Wedding Dress

The Emily Dress by Maggie Sottero Designs

The Emily Dress by Maggie Sottero  is hands down the ideal boho-chic wedding dress for the bride who wants to look refined but still maintain that eclectic gypsy vibe.

This flattering wedding dress features horizontal lace motifs, scattered lace appliqués, and a striking lace hem on tulle over dot tulle (we love dot tulle). See the fabric up-close below. Spaghetti straps run from sweetheart neckline to square back trimmed with illusion lace. As you see the train on the dress is fabulous.

Seriously, this dress does wonders for the décolletage area. It has a beautiful trimmed lace that accentuates your chest ever so perfectly.

It also has amazing support, given the spaghetti straps (which are actually quite sturdy). If you're on the hunt for a well made, ultra stylish boho-chic wedding dress you must consider The Emily Dress. Regardless of your bust size, it looks fantastic on both!

2. Floral Hat


If you're over the floral crown, how about a wide brim floppy hat? Adorn the rim of the hat with florals for that extra detail.  Be sure to match it with your bouquet to give your bridal look a cohesive feel.

If you do decide a wide brim floppy hat adorned with flowers is for you, wear it during portraits and the reception. Your amazing wedding hair-style is not going to look as great when you take the hat off. Gorg hair below by Pretty Little Ombre.

3. Boho Chic Nails


You'll be doing so many things with your hands on your wedding day. Taking photos with your bouquet, showing off your ring, hugging family and friends, making toasts, the list goes on.

Obviously, your nails need to be on point and flow with your wedding look. Here are a few nail pointers to get nail wedding ready for your big day. Boho-chic nails above painted by Emma Does Nails. Follow her on Intstagram here. 

1. Trial Run For Your Nails
If you're planning on having unique nails for your wedding day, we suggest going in for a trial run. This way you can nail down the art, look and shape of your nail. 

2. Gel Polish Is A Must
Your gel manicure will last up to two weeks after the wedding day. That means they will still look good on your honeymoon. If you aren't a fan of gel polish and opt for regular nail polish, make sure you bring a touch-up kit with you. Chipped nails on your wedding day are a major no-no.

4. Boho Chic Wedding Shoes

Picture it: You're wearing the perfect dress, natural-looking hair and makeup, on-point nails and there is vintage ethnic-inspired decor everywhere and this is all in a ballroom. Doesn't go ... right?

If you're planning a boho-chic wedding then you're going to want to go with an outdoor, earthy wedding venue. It basically sets the entire tone of your whole bridal look and feel.
