With the numerous similarities between the Bohemian and Celtic cultures, it should come as no surprise that more and more couples are opting for a Bohemian-Celtic theme for their special day. This is particularly suited to exotic, free-spirit couples who would like to have more freedom in planning every single step of their wedding. Boho-Celt unions certainly represent everything that’s fun and natural.
To hold a successful Bohemian-Celtic wedding, it’s quite important to select the adequate location. A library or a lavishly furnished space will certainly not do the trick here. Bohos and Celts are all about nature and natural touches, which is why it’s best to host the actual ceremony outdoors, even if you’re renting a hall for the reception. Think large green spaces such as parks, botanical gardens or maybe even a wide, spacious backyard. An extremely romantic touch would be to get married right in the middle of a lavender or flower field- two locations that will provide absolutely stunning backdrops in pictures. Try to look into vineyards as well: these usually offer special wedding packages that are tailored to your budget and personal needs.
Also, it wouldn’t be a Bohemian-Celtic wedding without the proper outfits. Long, billowy dresses made of lace or gauze will beautify just about any Boho-Celt bride. Bear in mind that gauzes and laces should remain the fabric of your choice and this is the time when you have to give the traditional satins, cottons or taffetas a miss. Don’t hesitate to go for lacey accessories such as a lace crown, chocker necklace or even a handcrafted lace crown to complement your exotic look. As far as the wedding cake goes, the sky’s the limit. You may either go for a typical white wedding cake or opt for one in the form of the traditional Celtic knot. If you really want to be different, however, think about skipping the wedding cake in favor of something more exotic like a flan?
Since Bohos and Celts have a special affinity with nature, it’s not a bad idea to include a few green touches to your outfits as well. And of course, there’s no reason why you should don typical wedding attires. The entire point of this theme is to dare to be different, something which both the bride and groom should embrace. Scents are also going to play a huge role in your Bohemian-Celtic wedding, which is why you should also invest in pumpkin, honey, molasses, chocolate or even coffee-scented candles to scatter around the reception area.
