What to Wear to a Wedding? The Boho Guide*

There will be flowers a plenty, potentially a beach or woodland venue – the bridesmaids and bride will having flowing locks adorned with daisies, and their will probably be a folk band and potentially some camping.

Festival & bohemian inspired weddings are on the rise and rightly so, they’re great fun!   But is does mean that dressing down is becoming an art – something I’m not great on.  I’m a heels and red lips kinda girl so the flowing boho look has never quite sat right on me.

Instead, for a bohemian wedding, I’ve gone for the most elfin dress I could find, and dressed it simply (although I couldn’t resist the heels).

The Lovedrobe for Simply Be Crochet dress is made from a satin-effect underlap overplayed with a crocheted floral lace.   It has a simple shift cut with a slight tapering at the waistline.

The dress has an ethereal quality with the lace hem cascading lower than the satin shift.  There is also a slight nod to the 20’s flapper dress, if you wanted to spin it that way too!

I can see the dress making a perfect bridesmaid dress, especially when paired with a floral crown!

Now heels aren’t always practical for a wedding based on the great outdoors, even on grass, they have a tendency to sink (as in the picture above) – bare foot, however, is perfect!

There is something very liberating about kicking of your heels and digging your toes into the sand (or grass) – I was at a beach wedding last year where I did just that – sat, toes in sand with a glass of wine as we watched the tide come in.

I’m wearing a size 18 in this dress and it is very true to size – the chest fits well, the back, shoulders and waist a tiny bit roomy, and the hips skim nicely.  Lovedrobe can be fairly off in their sizing but they seem to have got this dress just right.

It’s priced at £60 which is fairly in line with the other pretty summer dress being sold on Simply Be at the moment.

I feel very Midsummers Night dream in this, as though Puck is about to sweep me away in a dream of woodland fairies – which makes it perfect for the relaxed boho affair!
