Today’s wedding inspiration comes to us from Queensland, Australia with the spirit of Tulum, stylishly demonstrating that your boho micro wedding can truly happen anywhere!
If you’re a free-spirited couple looking to learn how to plan a boho micro wedding, take a peek at these Baja-inspired vignettes. Every design element, by Desert Rose Styling, is oozing with bohemian style – so feel free to *insert* your own personalities here.
While you’re all wide-eyed over this cool arbor, be sure to pick up the sublte ‘how-tos’ along the way. Through the lens of The Seitter Wood House Photography, you’ll learn how to nail a boho beach wedding:
Sculptural Beach Wedding Arch Unlike Any Other
Yess, a ceremony set up like no other! It’s a perfect place to start when planning. Instead of lined chairs for guests, let the beach guide you to something more fitting. Here, Indian grinder tables are surrounded by Moroccan ottomans. Wildly inviting!
If you have an intriguing ceremony backdrop, filled with lush bohemian foliage then you’re halfway there! This rad beach wedding arch is dressed with dried palms, fluffy pampas + fresh, white roses all from I Do Flowers. In short, it’s a wow-worthy ceremony setting, with curves that create a window to the seemingly infinite ocean. Simple elegance embraces the natural beauty of organic surroundings.
Bohemian Bride with Loose Waves
Tropical Beauty really has this effortless stunning hair + makeup thing down, wouldn’t you say? To us, loose waves portray a true free-spirited *beach* bride.
The beach wedding arch along is magic, but accompanied by a free-spirited, stylish dress just elevates it that much more! Speaking of which…here’s the ‘Havana’ gown by Luna Willow Bridal; a figure-hugging dress made with the most exquisite feather pattern. Together with a sheer bodice + visible boning, this gown was made for a bohemian beauty! Skirt overlay, anyone?
When there’s a cool architectural beach shack onsite, you need to budget in some photo ops! Tropical greenery peeks through here; but most importantly are those three beaded chandeliers sweetly hanging above! Boho luxe beauty.
Micro Wedding Tablescape with Macrame
An intimate dining set up is a must for boho micro weddings. Some cool personality showing through here with the inclusion of vintage Indian furniture. We almost feel a spirit of Tulum in these designs!
Planning a wedding in Tulum? Barefoot + boho vibes are welcomed.
The tablescape features a hand-dyed gauze table runner, rustic carved candle holders, hand crafted ceramics and a delicate mix of fresh roses with dried + preserved foliage. Warm tones of the rustic wood nicely mix with hints of metallic flatware, creating a real relaxed setting. Furniture from the Bungalow Life.
Sweeping modern calligraphy round out this micro wedding tablescape in all the best ways. Love makes the wildest spirit tame and the tamest spirit wild. Calligraphy by The Seitter Wood House Inks.
Macrame moves right here. Custom macrame pendants, handmade by Hanging Around Macrame, are accompanied by dried foliage. Above all, it’s a truly neutral and bohemian vibe.
Sweet and Free-Spirited
Boho and Baja textures on this cake, created by Loveleighs Cakery, tell a really free-spirited story. We love the organic edging and rice paper details.
Just noting this stunning + simplistic boho bouquet made of pampas + crisp white roses. Wrap in some neutral-toned silk and you’re golden! All kinds of Caribbean-style Tulum wedding vibes in the set up.
We can feel the sea breeze from here.
