Wedding Theme: Urban Boho

You will know that we just adore stylish city weddings with a gritty, urban vibe. However, we also adore the idea of giving a chic city wedding an unusual twist and that is what today’s post is all about. A wonderful fusion of botanical and bohemian, this is definitely a theme for a style-conscious couple who want something a little different for their big day. Discover how you can pull off a wedding with an ‘urban boho’ vibe…

We’ll kick-start this theme with your wedding ceremony, the most important part of your special day! City wedding venues often offer a blank canvas space where you can really put your own stamp on your day. We’re huge fans of statement backdrops and unique aisle decorations, and an urban boho wedding theme is the perfect match for a creative couple. Greenery and foliage is still a huge trend in the world of weddings, and a leafy archway or hanging installation will look incredible at your venue. Surround it with brushed metallic lanterns or hanging macramé for an extra dash of bohemian magic. When it comes to aisle decorations, consider using antique-style rugs and plant pots full of cacti to line the length of the aisle. A mixture of rugs will look rather wonderful, and you’ll have fun collecting them from charity shops, boot sales or quirky boutiques. Alternatively, you’ll be able to find them at a range of wedding hire companies.

Tie your wedding ceremony in with your reception by opting for the same style of décor. Line the length of your table with wild foliage or hang plant pots above your tables as centrepieces. Rattan peacock chairs are an unusual yet wonderful choice for the bride and groom chairs, and we can guarantee your guests won’t have seen anything like them! We recommend using long wooden trestle tables for this theme, as white tables won’t have the same ‘rustic’ effect. You can use potted plants or metallic terrariums throughout your wedding venue décor. For instance, dot geometric terrariums along your cake table, gift table or along any windowsills.

Burgundy, dark green and luxe gold work perfectly together to create an urban boho wedding theme, so be sure to channel this through your aisle style. A bouquet brimming with lots of leafy greenery and velvet red blooms will look stunning. Add those fabulous finishing touches with gorgeous golden accessories and jewellery. For the groom, team a navy suit with burgundy details – perhaps add a pair of quirky cufflinks or a pocket watch for a special touch. Your bridesmaids will look beautiful in an array of dusty red gowns, or you could even ask them to wear green dresses!

While a boho theme works beautifully for an outdoor, festival-style wedding, it’s effortlessly easy to add a few edgier touches to transform it into a modern urban wedding. If you love this style of wedding, don’t forget to take a look at our greenhouse inspiration and ideas!
