Whether you consider yourself a lover of bohemia or not, a bohemian wedding dress is a gorgeous option for a range of weddings. We think outdoor nuptials are an especially prime occasion for a bohemian-style wedding dress whether you’re planning to say ‘I do” by the ocean, in the desert, or in the woods.

Not all bohemian dresses are the same—they range from glamorous to super laid-back (there can be a misconception that bohemian exclusively equates to casual). While many bohemian wedding dresses come with an ethereal quality, an assortment of silhouettes are on offer from billowing skirts and capelet-style sleeves to more fitted shapes with dazzling elements to highlight your figure. Bohemian wedding dresses are all about the details—if you’re one for a stand-out effect choose from intricate crochet, elegant fringe, delicate lace, or elaborate beadwork. Sequins and shine can also come with bohemian vibes, too. To keep up that wanderlust appeal, such ornamentation is often balanced by breezy shapes or done as a finishing accent. If you’re seeking simplicity, aim for an unfussy silhouette with a unique element like a scalloped lace hem, a sheer lace panel, or just a few beads to adorn the cuff of a sleeve.

Bohemian wedding dresses can be super sexy, too! You can opt for a silky long-sleeve column dress with a thigh-high slit or go for a curve-hugging trumpet gown done in all-over lace with dramatic bell sleeves. Even a simple slip dress feels sexy and carefree when done with unique lace appliqué or with a plunging back.

For more drama, a tiered skirt is fresh with a bohemian spin—done in wispy fabrics like tulle or with a sheer overlay, the effect is idyllic for the carefree romantic. You can up the ante even more with a gown in all-over floral guipure lace or via an illusion silhouette with sheer panels and tactile appliqués—fashion forward and super statement-making.

Wherever you fall on the bohemian scale, we’ve scouted 49 beautiful gowns to consider ahead. From ornate to understated, these brands all specialize in wedding dresses that exude a romantic free sprint.
