Bring some laid-back, free-spirited flair to your wedding day by exchanging vows in front of a tipi-inspired tent. The tall, cone-shaped structure will help serve as a focal point in your wedding ceremony setting—an especially good idea when you’re marrying in a wide, open space.

You can choose to add tent fabric to the sides or opt to simply leave the poles unadorned—but then you could also add fresh greenery or flowers for a bright pop of color. Ahead, you’ll find 10 of our favorite takes on this stylishly boho ceremony trend.

When the Pacific Ocean is your ceremony backdrop, you don’t really need much additional decor. The bride built the three-pole tent structure herself so that it served as a focal point during the ceremony without detracting from the ocean views.

If you’re trying to evoke a bohemian, 60s-inspired aesthetic for your wedding day, skip the sprinkling of aisle petals and use them instead to create a large peace sign at the altar.
