If your personal style is more ethereal than traditional or more relaxed than structured – chances are – you're in the market for a bohemian wedding dress. While the boho aesthetic has always been a mainstay in bridal fashion, it has evolved to include many different iterations of this quintessentially laidback style. From unfussy slip dresses to lace floor-length gowns, bohemian wedding dresses run the gamut from pared-back and casual to dramatic and glamourous.

For an utterly timeless bohemian look, you can never go wrong with loose-fitting silhouettes, light as air lace, and delicate flutter sleeves. Bohemian bridal gowns always pair seamlessly with vintage-themed weddings, with many dresses boasting '70's inspired bell sleeves and antique lace. For the glamorous bride, floor-length gowns adorned with shimmering sequins and beads add a formal touch to a casual bohemian silhouette.
