The Perfect Boho Bridesmaids Dresses (+ Where to Buy)

polka dotted dress

Hi, there. Happy Thursday! I like to visit fashion blogs and Pinterest boards, getting the scoop for the latest + greatest fashion trends. But it drives me nuts when I see a gorgeous outfit pieced together with one specific item I want and it doesn’t mention where to get it. And then I Google it and I can’t find the item, or I do but it is SOLD OUT. Bummer. I know it happens: I’ve seen some Real Weddings with amazing bridesmaids dresses but sometimes you can’t find the original designer or bridesmaids picked them out themselves it’s nearly impossible to contact them to find out where they were from. Articles can suggest similar pieces all they want, but are they ever really close enough? Never! At least I don’t think so.

You can imagine my excitement, then, when I found the perfect boho bridesmaids dresses that I knew you would love, along with a link to buy them + tons of color options + an affordable price. If you are looking for ruffly, flowy, mismatched boho bridesmaids dresses and you want your bridesmaids to love you for a) being reasonable in price, b) letting them pick a favorite color, and c) narrowing this down today, then I’ve done my job. I just love these dresses and think you will, too.

Here’s the wedding where I spotted them (photo by Veronica Varos) and here are the dresses:

Here’s the link to the dress. It’s technically called a slip, and it may be considered a bit short to some, but we think they look great as is or paired with an underlay skirt, jacket or long cardi, boots, or tights… the possibilities are endless. After all, a boho themed wedding is all about no rules. Free spirited. Laid-back. And you can make it anything you want it to be.

Plus, if you order them all right now you can get Free Shipping Over $100 at FreePeople.com.

I’m thinking about the red one for myself to pair with tights and boots for fall + winter… what do you think? Do you like these?

Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses Done Right

mismatched bridesmaid dresses

Oh, how we love mismatched bridesmaid dresses, especially when done right! Although it sounds like a piece of cake, the loveliest mismatched bridesmaid dresses done right actually requires a little pre-planning on your part.

mismatched bridesmaid dresses done right

If you’re wondering what mismatched bridesmaid dresses are, it is a trend where bridesmaids don dresses that are similar but not exactly the same. You are essentially asking bridesmaids to pick a dress they love in a particular shade, typically one that complements your color palette. You can pick the same style of dress and have each bridesmaid pick their favorite color; or, they can have free reign and pick any style dress in any color. However, to get this look right, we recommend providing a color palette with complementing shades so they look lovely and harmonious, without having to be exact carbon copies of each other. Complementing shades = a more cohesive look. Your photos will look awesome. You’ll be happy. She’ll be happy. She’ll actually wear the dress again. She’ll love how awesome she looks in her dress, and she’ll love you 1000x for it, since you’re pretty much Bride of the Year for being so flexible.

And, if you want to add one teensy element that will pull them all together, an accessory piece like this embellished dress belt will do the trick.

I also want my bridesmaids to wear cowboy boots, but I want to buy them as gifts and I can’t really afford what I’ve found. Do you know of any cheap wedding cowboy boots under $100?” You’ve come to the right place!

I picked these as the third option because I like how they have a little something blue. What do you think of these? They’re also available in a ton of other color combinations.

Hello, hello! It’s time for another fantastic giveaway, #16 in our 31 Wedding Giveaways series! And, might I add, it’s a good one. (But really, they’re all pretty amazing, no?) We’ve teamed up with Rachel of Peachtree Lane to offer a secret message locket to one lucky reader. This locket opens and has enough room for a small, folded, sweetly-written note for yourself or a loved one. You can keep a special date close to your heart or use it as a cute way to ask, ‘Be My Bridesmaid‘. We also love the idea of this necklace with a ‘Will You Marry Me’ inside. I can see it now: she goes to open the necklace, read the note, and as she does he gets down on one knee and holds out the ring box… so sweet. Read on to find out more…
