Jewellery adds that special finishing touch to any wedding gown, transforming your look from bridal beauty to goddess. While you may not have opted for a bespoke dress design, you can personalise your look with unusual, yet stunning, pieces of jewellery. To give you a helping hand, we’ll be showing you just how to channel your inner hippy with these beautifully different jewellery designs…
When we think boho bride, the first thing that comes to our mind is the hairstyle and all the finishing touches. The floral crown, across-the-forehead headband and vintage comb are just some of the looks you’ll have seen. Jewellery placed on top of a fine veil, or worked into a hairstyle, such as a loose plait or bun, also looks wonderfully chic.
Leaves, flowers and feathers… anything inspired by nature looks great on a boho bride. Think crystal embellished floral headbands, golden leaf headbands and streams of feathers hanging from your hair accessory down the lengths of your hair.
Just because it’s traditional for the bride to wear white, this doesn’t mean you can’t embrace a bit of colour with your jewellery. Take inspiration from those Moroccan jewel tones, popular in boho weddings, and opt for turquoise jewelled drop earrings or a stunning hot pink gem stone necklace, drawing attention to the detail on your gown.
Some boho brides may like to keep to the traditional of white – opting for stylish jewellery that completes their look while still complementing the traditional bridal style. For these brides we recommend delicate pearl and crystal chandelier earrings, echoing a glam yet hippy vibe, and a silk, crystal and pearl cuff around the wrist.

A twist on tradition
Boho brides take traditional jewellery to a whole new level. Simple pearl necklaces can become a rather more brightly coloured affair and pretty pendants can be worn on long, flowing chains. Stud earrings can be swapped for a more dramatic chandelier shape, while the delicate bracelet should be replaced with extravagant, chunky bangles.
With the boho look it’s those little extras that show off your personality and let your inner hippy shine through. Think outside of the box when it comes to your wedding jewellery and choose items that only a boho bride would wear. For your feet why not consider the chunky pearl or beaded anklet or embroidered barefoot ballerina look?
When it comes your garter, why not put an alternative take on tradition with something more boho and simple in style?
Forget making room for just your wedding and engagement rings. Include more statement pieces of jewellery in your look with meaningful, decorative bands.
Another way to personalise you look is by adding a chic belt to your gown . Whether beaded or metallic in colour, it’s a great way to add a touch of boho charm.
One of our favourite jewellery additions has to be the back necklace . Transforming a plain gown into something really spectacular, there’s something beautiful and other-worldly about this delicate back detail.
