Bohemian style encapsulates a whimsical, romantic aesthetic that can be classic or modern. If you’re looking to adorn your bridal party with an ethereal look, there’s no better style to emulate soft romance. Let your bridesmaids' personalities shine through with a style that caters to their personal aesthetic. Whether you opt for matching looks or find an overarching theme, a line-up of earthy, organic dresses can be appropriate for all seasons. We recommend a jewel-toned velvet dress for a winter wedding, a floral-smocked dress for garden party nuptials, and a long-sleeved bohemian frock for an autumnal ceremony.

Traditionally, bohemian looks have been vintage-inspired, featuring delicate lace fabrics and classic silhouettes. However, it has since evolved and can be edgy or soft, incorporating earthy tones, flowy hemlines, and unique silhouettes for a charming and enchanting look that fits a range of bridesmaid styles. There's no shortage of contemporary retailers and brands that specialize in free-spirited dresses at all price points, from sustainably made gowns from Reformation to elegant velvet dresses from BHLDN. Whether it's an intimate ceremony under the stars or an idyllic wedding in the countryside, you can count on a boho dress fitting the bill.

From velvet to soft tulle, these are the best bohemian bridal party dresses for every style and budget.

What to Look for in Boho Bridal Party Dresses

While you're shopping for the perfect bohemian bridal party dresses, there are several things to keep in mind. As with most items for your wedding, prices can vary greatly, so you'll want to find dresses that fit within your bridesmaids' budget. Along with the price, you should take into consideration styles that can be worn beyond the wedding and reception. Versatility is key here: Deciding upon a color scheme will further allow your bridesmaids to find a dress that fits their personal style while staying true to your overall vision. 

Bohemian dresses can run the gamut from romantic and fairy tale–esque to free-spirited and whimsical. Depending on the wedding venue, it's important to determine what style of dress will be the best match. Additionally, boho dresses can be long and flowy but also shorter and of thinner material, so you'll want an appropriate dress based on the time of year for your big day. Styles can vary between lace, floral, pleated, and even velvet, which will give your bridesmaids plenty of ideas to consider.
