What do you imagine when you hear the words ‘boho bride’? I think of a beautiful girl who is dressed in a relaxed and romantic way. This style is perfect for a beach or a wedding set in the woods, if you want something light and pretty. Lace, chains, feather, rhinestones, flowers-everything to finish your airy boho look I’ve hunted down the best places to find these items. So here’s a simple list for boho bridal headpieces no matter where you’re based or what your budget.
Although it’s not for every bride I love the bohemian bridal headpieces and bridal hair garlands as a veil alternative. This whimsical, romantic, and laid back look is recently becoming popular among brides who have that bohemian vibe or a love for everything vintage. If your style is less Kate Middleton and more Nicole Richie then don’t be pressured into wearing a traditional wedding dress and veil. Stay true to your style for your wedding day and you’ll be guaranteed to look effortless and feel amazing-just as you should on your special day! Yes, this look may confuse your granny and a few guys in the crowd but you’ll never please everyone and no bride looks better than when she stays true to her own style.
Although bohemian style headpieces aren’t heavily stocked on the shelves of East Coast bridal boutiques, you’re starting to find some beautiful choices in the more fashion forward shops. Heather Boissonneault, owner and curator at the fab boutique September Shine Bridal Jewelry and Accessories opened her online boutique because she saw a need for an online bridal boutique in the Canadian market place. She has the most beautiful pieces to shine bright on your day and the most beautiful part? You can borrow your bling! Amazing!
From left to right we have the Veronica Ethereal Bridal Head Chain by Cynthier at $135 and the Matty Hair Chain from Sara Gabriel Veiling & Headpieces at $589.
And of course, there’s always online options. Etsy, David’s Bridal, BHLDN, and ASOS offer many reasonable but gorgeous options. They offer stunning budget friendly style which makes it a smart option for a bride who is on a budget but doesn’t want to compromise on style. The online options are endless! Beautiful pieces from Grace Loves Lace, Twigs and Honey, and the proudly Canadian company Olivia Wolf are other alternative options to check out.
Working our way around clockwise we have the Wren Headpiece from Olivia Wolf at $490, the Pieces Danilue Headpiece from ASOS for $28, the Rhinestone Boho Headdress from Twigs and Honey at $375 and the Regnant Halo from BHLDN at $120.
Remember, veils can cost anywhere from $50 to $500+ and sadly you’re most likely not going to get another wear out of it whereas a beautiful headpiece can be worn again and again!
