2016 Trend – The Bohemian Wedding

If you’ve been wedding planning with a Pinterest account, then you would have come across more, and more Bohemian themed pins. They don’t follow any traditional theme, with a cut and dry colour or style – there are so many different ways to pull this off that’s it’s hard to get it wrong. Boho is all about free-spirited colours, materials, textures and patterns.

One thing is for sure at a Bohemian Wedding – Flowers. These are the centrepiece that everything else is built around. They can be incorporated in so many ways!

A bouquet can be contained in vases like jars and jugs, or they can be spilling out from the ceiling over each table like a low hanging lamp! Clusters of petals can line walkways –especially down the aisle! Or they can build up in the middle of the table around the foot of brightly coloured wax candles. A brilliant feature of a marquee is the high ceilings, where you can tie long strings of flowers together to create a shower of florals overhead!

The very essence of Bohemian includes wearing flowers in your hair as a statement of free-spiritedness. Flower crowns have become mainstream fashion in the 21st century, and are frequently seen worn by the bridal party which is set to continue into 2016. It is becoming popular to discard the traditional veil for a real flower crown, atop naturally wavy, flowing hair. The polished up-do hair styles don’t blend with the relaxed Boho themed décor or dress; try using braids of single flowers adorning the style to pull it all together.

The Boho theme is timeless, unlike puff sleeves and corseted dresses. Make sure the dress suits your shape, or if you find one with the perfect design, beading or lace that doesn’t make the most of your body, buy one size up and take it to a dressmaker to transform.

Allowing your Bridesmaids to feel comfortable with your wedding theme is so important, if you want them to exude the confidence needed on the day to help merge friends and families. Similarly to the Wedding Dress, shape is everything which is hard to get spot on with several different women! It’s very popular to choose one colour but different style dresses to make each bridesmaid look their best. Alternatively you can hand them your guidelines; floor length, pastel, chiffon – and let them each choose their own, different dress. Distinguish them as bridesmaids by having floral crowns.


A couple of things to remember for a Boho Wedding:

  • Make it clear on the invitations the theme of the wedding if you want your guests to choose similar outfits. Pick a pattern that will reflect your décor and mention your inspiration. Your guest will most likely prefer wearing flat sandals and natural hair anyway!
  • Your wedding photographs will look incredible if you plan a location for the shoot. The Boho theme looks it’s best in natural, untouched settings like woodlands, or open fields. Have a discussion with your photographer, and if your venue doesn’t have the prefect spot, plan a 30 minute excursion.
  • Outside space is so important with this theme, make sure you think about fairy lights, candles and ‘props’ for outdoors. Set up seating areas and even music so the party can drift in and out.
  • Keep everything as true to you as you can! If Moroccan floor mats and finger food is something your guest expect from you – then go ahead! But if you still want to keep a sit-down meal, with all of the traditions then don’t stray from this. You might regret having such a themed wedding.


A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
