Bohemian themed floral decor ideas to ramp up the wedding festivities

Floral décor, skillfully created by local artists and craftspeople, combines a range of ideas and themes to subtly combine Western and traditional values with a dash of contemporary style.


Statement arrangements and stylized floral styles are reviving wedding décor as Millennial and Gen-Z couples question and challenge traditional norms. Floral décor, skillfully created by local artists and craftspeople, combines a range of ideas and themes to subtly combine Western and traditional values with a dash of contemporary style.

“As weddings evolve from one-size-fits-all ceremonies to deeply personal celebrations that reflect each couple’s unique journey and bond with nature, the bohemian theme has blossomed as a cherished choice among brides for their Haldi and Mehendi functions. Characterized by its rustic elegance, this growing trend is rooted in couples’ desires to break free from traditional constraints, seeking instead to infuse their celebrations with elements that are true to their individual styles and connected to the natural world,” stated Srishti Kapur, Co-Founder of Floral Art, as quoted by Hindustan Times Lifestyle.

Asparagus Fern wedding decor amplified by pink hued roses

She added, “At the heart of the bohemian aesthetic is the fusion of various natural elements to achieve a dreamy yet grounded ambience. Incorporating an array of wildflowers, such as lavender, wild daisies, and sunflowers, alongside dry pampas grass creates a whimsical yet earthy feel. These florals, when paired with lush greenery like Eucalyptus and Asparagus ferns, weave a narrative of romantic wilderness that is both inviting and intimately personal. Using these elements in decor, from centrepieces to floral arches, allows couples to craft a space that truly reflects their spirit and love for the unconventional. These elements, coupled with a palette of sunset hues and earth tones, work in harmony to embody the real bohemian spirit.”

Lush green foliage setting the wedding vibe

Shrishti further spoke about the ongoing trends, “Additionally, alternatives like leafy garlands that forgo flowers in favour of lush, green foliage further encapsulates the essence of bohemian charm. To complement the floral arrangements and truly encapsulate the bohemian vibe, it’s very effective to use materials such as jute, foliage, and dried succulents. Additionally, integrating non-floral elements is key. Textured carpets that whisper tales of distant lands, Aztec prints that add a layer of mystery, macrame hangings that bring a touch of artisanal craft, and strategically placed mirrors to reflect the soft, natural light all contribute to creating a holistic bohemian atmosphere. These elements, when blended with the natural beauty of flowers, enhance the aesthetic, making every corner of the venue a reflection of the couple’s wanderlust and free-spirited nature.”

She continued, “Another dimension to embodying the bohemian theme is through the choice of adornments. Opting for dry floral jewellery not only complements the decor but also allows the bride to immerse herself fully in the bohemian trend. This personalized touch adds to the overall narrative, enabling the bride to express her individuality and connection with nature in a fashion that’s both comfortable and stylish. The incorporation of floral jewellery, be it in the form of headpieces, necklaces, or wristlets, serves as a bridge between the wearer and the essence of bohemia, elevating the entire wedding ensemble to reflect the theme’s core values of freedom, beauty, and natural harmony.”

A hint of Bohemia to ramp up the wedding charm

“As the trend towards bohemian weddings continues to grow, it encourages couples to view their celebration not just as a day to remember but as a heartfelt expression of their deepest dreams and values, all set against the backdrop of nature’s splendour,” Srishti wrapped up.
