Boho weddings (and in particular, boho wedding invitations) have been on-trend for as long as we can remember, and there’s good reason why!
The term “Boho”—which can refer to a creative, artistic way of life or a fashion aesthetic (think flowy prints and layered fabrics and beads)—is easy to create a wedding theme around.
First, the color palette is super flexible. From burgundy to blush, any jewel tone or pastel can work. Even black would be at home in a boho wedding!
And let’s not forget the decor. Feathers, wildflowers, eucalyptus and other greenery can all add a whimsical touch to your big day. (Especially if you wear them all at once with a flower crown!).
But one of the best ways to introduce your guests to a boho wedding vibe is through your wedding stationery. And thankfully, bohemian wedding invitations are some of our favorites.
How to Choose the Right Boho Wedding Invitations
The first rule when shopping for any chic wedding invitations is to keep your budget in mind. Once you’ve narrowed down your guest list, you’ll want to figure out how much you can spend on invites. Generally speaking, you should spend 2%-5% of your wedding budget on invites and wedding stationery.
From there, you’ll want to have a general sense of your wedding theme and color palette. You should have your venue and date by the time you send out your invites, which will give you an idea of the colors you might want to incorporate.
For instance, if you’re getting married in the summer, you might look for boho wedding invitations with terracotta or navy. Or, you could opt for an unbeatable print in the color of your choice. That print could be carried throughout the day on your wedding programs and place cards. Alternatively, don’t discount a simple invitation with calligraphy. A modern boho wedding invite doesn’t have to have a lot of flourishes to stand out!
Where to Find Boho Wedding Invitations
While there are several Etsy sellers we recommend, the majority of boho wedding invites we love are from independent designers on Minted. It’s hard to beat their designs and paper quality, as well as the ability to match your invites to all your wedding day stationery. You can even get a matching wedding website.
