Planning the big day around your dream of wearing the coolest, most effortless, most beautiful boho wedding dress of all time?
You know what that means …
Your wedding party will need bohemian bridesmaid dresses to go with your stand-out boho gown!
Boho isn’t just some new, trending style. It’s an aesthetic. And that’s good news because it means you have endless dress options to choose from.
Here’s our guide to styling bohemian bridesmaid dresses. We've also included how to choose the right look and how to choose the right flowers and accessories to complement your boho-chic vibe.
How To Choose the Perfect Boho Bridesmaid Dresses
The boho aesthetic works for any casual, rustic, woodsy, or beachy wedding.
Because the whole vibe is about being carefree, cool, effortless, and naturally beautiful!
When shopping for boho bridesmaid dresses, there are three things to keep in mind:
The good news is that there’s no such thing as a “boho” color.
Bohemian-style dresses can be neutral, pastel, dark, or muted. You can even mix and match different colors in your bridesmaid dresses or incorporate pretty prints.
Bright, vibrant tones — such as fuchsia pink and royal blue — are beautiful for a boho wedding. But almost any color can work for a boho wedding as long as you choose the right silhouette.
Bohemian dresses can have any neckline or sleeve length, but they’re typically flowy and soft, dreamy, and somewhat ethereal.
Tight-fitting silhouettes and structured, sculptural, and tailored dresses look more glamorous and chic than effortless and carefree.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you must choose empire waist A-line silhouettes with puffed sleeves or ruffles. Though, those are absolutely perfect for a boho bash!
For example, are you looking to achieve a carefree look? Then, go for a chic velvet gown with a draped cowl neckline or a strappy A-line halter with a cut-out keyhole neckline.
Opting for soft and lightweight fabrics like chiffon, tulle, or lace is best if you want great movement and flow in a dress.
Stiffer fabrics, like faille, heavy satin, crepe, and sequins, usually have more structure and give off more of a glamorous vibe than a boho feel.

Which Accessories Go Best With a Boho Bridesmaid Dress?
Ready for some inspo on how to accessorize boho bridesmaid dresses?
These simple styling tips will help you achieve true boho style on your big day!
Accessorize With Understated Jewelry
Bridesmaids don't need to wear giant diamond earrings or big, bold statement necklaces. In fact, small earrings, delicate pendant necklaces, or beaded ankle bracelets are all you need to pull off a modern, minimalist boho look.
Choose Shoes Appropriate for Your Venue
Select your footwear based on the formality of your wedding and your venue.
Wedges and flat sandals are great options for getting married in the woods or on grass. On the other hand, if you’re hosting a lavish celebration, team those boho bridesmaid dresses with strappy metallic heels.
Are you having a wedding on the beach? Then, you might want to ditch the footwear altogether. There’s almost nothing more boho than going barefoot!
Hair Dos (and Don’ts)
Long natural hairstyles, soft braided styles, and loose ponytails are oh-so-chic for a boho wedding.
Flower crowns are practically synonymous with boho style, but they’re certainly not your only option. There are all sorts of cool, interesting ways to accessorize everyone's hair.
That includes your bridesmaids, flower girls, mother of the bride, and mother of the groom.
Accessorize a ponytail with a burlap tie. For a half-up-half-down look, add a small hair clip or a floral comb (there are lots to choose from on Etsy). Or, accessorize with a rhinestone head chain or a sparkly vine headband for a bit of glitz and drama.
How To Pick Flower Bouquets To Go With Boho Dresses
When selecting bouquets for your wedding party, choose flowers that work with the natural environment of your venue.
Colorful wildflowers are perfect for a garden wedding. And, fresh greenery is a beautiful compliment to a rustic, woodsy venue.
Floral stems wrapped with burlap or ribbons are ideal for a barn venue. Meanwhile, small white bouquets are a gorgeous option for a beach wedding!
