The intimate Indian wedding has steered away from the same-old, traditional setup and given way to the personal and the unconventional... Enter, the bohemian celebration that welcomes a burst of colour and a generous dose of whimsy to your wedding gathering. “From organic table runners to macramé hangings, dream catchers, dyed threadwork, and wooden embellishments, the boho trend calls for the inclusion of laidback décor accents while ensuring that the overall look remains sophisticated,” explains Vikram Mehta, Founder, Mpire Events.
“Consider a warm, earthy palette and jewel tones, and play with dyed textures and patterns, especially for table centrepieces and wall hangings. You could also organise a low-level seating arrangement featuring bohemian rugs and succulent planters,” he adds. According to Prerana Agarwal Saxena, Founder and CEO, Theme Weavers Designs, “The bohemian aesthetic urges you to be mindful of sustainability. Highlight the natural setting and select eclectic pieces to make a statement. The intention is to exude an aura of understated luxury, by transcending ‘basic’ décor styles and paying attention to minute details.”
Prerana recommends including shades like muted forest green, cappuccino brown, or apricot orange, rather than focusing only on bright pops of colour or soothing pastel hues. “Use candelabras and dried flowers as centrepieces and tents and tepees to create delightful sitting spaces. You may also consider incorporating celestial details in your décor —take inspiration from the galaxy, the stars, and the moon. The sheer beauty of the bohemian style lies in its ability to adapt,” she shares.
