Want to know what we love most about this bohemian wedding inspiration? It’s not just the neutral, white and gold palette, the whimsical styling and festival vibe, but that it’s jam-packed with cool outdoor wedding ideas. There’s no shortage of amazing details from the moment this free-spirited couple step up to their dreamy ceremony setting to say their vows.
With a full weekend of festivities planned, comfy lounge spaces and lavish grazing platters are the perfect way to kick back at a cocktail style wedding reception. A vinyl DJ, vintage caravan bar, Kombi transport and outdoor cinema bring retro charm, while a crackling fire pit, swathes of fairy lights and a fire twirling performance add their own magic to the party atmosphere. A glamping tent kitted out with a queen bed to tumble into at the end of the night means there’s nowhere else you need to be!
Choose any or all of these ideas for your own celebration and it’ll be a wedding experience your guests will be talking about for a long time!
A boho wedding stationery suite on white deckle edge cotton paper features a fine line foliage motif and modern vintage serif font paired with flowing script. The suite consists of a wedding invitation, a card providing “The Details” on the reception, gifts and attire, a “Kindly Respond By” RSVP card, an escort card with the guest name and table number, and a dinner menu.
This outdoor boho wedding ceremony consists of woven jute rugs for the aisle and two pillars of white circles in varying sizes adorned with macrame, feathers and flowers for the arbour. The setting is framed by bamboo folding chairs for guests and large white vases decorated with fringed macrame wraps that are filled with neutral dried floral arrangements accented with stems of white tulips, stocks, cotton and ruscus.
A white fabric wedding welcome sign features the same fine line foliage illustration as the stationery suite and the William Shakespeare quote, “When I first saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew.” A cluster of bamboo lanterns and a woven basket of jute fans sits atop a macrame rug alongside the welcome sign.
Elora wears a white two piece lace boho wedding dress with a long sleeved cropped bodice and tiered maxi skirt. Her hair is worn in a romantic half up half down style with loose waves and a cascading fresh floral hairpiece.
Azriel wears an untucked white linen shirt with the sleeves rolled up and collar unbuttoned, light grey chinos and brown boots for a casual wedding day look.
After the ceremony, guests are served drinks from a white vintage caravan bar and miniature row boat filled with beer on ice. This setting is styled with white and neutral floral arrangements to match the rest of the boho wedding decor.
A DJ sets a laid-back party atmosphere with the retro sounds of vinyl records. Two neutral geometric fabric panels feature on the front of his white timber DJ station, which is topped with an amber glass table lamp with bare Edison bulb.
The Lounge Spaces
The outdoor cocktail style wedding reception features a number of eclectic seating areas for guests. Here, white bean bags encircle a natural round jute rug. A small white round wooden coffee table and rustic white stacked crates complete the setting, which are decorated with macrame runners, a pillar candle in a clear glass hurricane lantern and small vases of white and neutral flowers, feathers and foliage.
Situated beneath a large tipi is a rattan lounge setting on a seagrass rug surrounded by fringed fabric stools, tasseled pillows and floor cushions in neutral tones. A matching rattan coffee table is topped with white bamboo tealight holders and fresh blooms in white vases. Potted plants in wicker baskets add lush greenery to this cool space.
The bride carries a beautiful white monochromatic wedding bouquet which features ranunculus, roses, fern, silver dollar eucalyptus, ruscus, ming fern, leatherleaf fern, mini gypsophila and neutral rice flower accents tied with champagne ribbon.
The Dining Experience
A naked tipi wrapped in fairy lights and sprays of boho florals is set for picnic style grazing. Beneath a beaded and fringed chandelier sits layered rugs, scattered cushions in neutral and white textures and a low table set for eight. This is topped with a macrame runner and clusters of white vessels displaying fresh posies.
The place settings feature gold cutlery, a natural woven placemat topped with white plateware and neutral napkins tied with cord and feathers. A generous antipasto platter placed in the centre of the table is ready for the happy couple and their crew!
The Dessert Display
For the boho wedding dessert display, a bamboo frame is dressed with an open weave macrame garland and wild neutral and white floral arrangements top right and bottom left. The variety of desserts offers something for everyone, with cakes, donuts, cake pops and macarons presented on a matching bamboo bar decorated with a macrame table runner, white bamboo tealight holders and neutral fabric bunting.
The Wedding Cake
A two tiered wedding cake sits on a clear glass cake plate. The top tier features smooth white buttercream with a trail of gold leaf, while the bottom tier features textured gold buttercream. The cake is decorated with artful sprays of white dried silver dollar eucalyptus, ruscus, scabiosa pods and skeleton leaves, blush dried rice flower and fresh white roses, tulips and ranunculus.
A second single tier white buttercream wedding cake features bold chevron texture, dried orange slices, whole pear, blueberries and assorted feathers.
The Glamping Tent
A bronze, neutral and white balloon installation frames the entrance to the couple’s glamping tent, styled with layered bohemian rugs, throw pillows, a queen bed, camp chairs, fabric garlands, wooden furnishings and wicker decor.
The Dance Floor
This loved-up couple shares their first dance on a timber dance floor beneath a canopy of twinkling fairy lights and in front of a large tipi styled with eclectic lounge seating.
