Michellyoh :  What kind of boho elements are you considering? I think you could boho this dress up with hair, makeup, and jewelry. It could be a very interesting and fun juxtaposition.

Michellyoh :  I can totally picture that dress with a woodsy/forest themed venue!

It’s beautiful but to me it’s just not boho.  To me, boho is less structured, very flowy and a little ” rustic”.

Not boho at all .. I can’t picture it. Maybe if you added a tassel shawl? But maybe not then either.

I don’t think your dress has to match the decor.

I think you are overthinking things.

First of all, I love the dress!!! So pretty, and I love the color and embellishment and the back is incredible. I hope it represents the hope, promise, or joy of building a family. ❤️

For the style, I say do what you want! This dress reads fairy tale/ woodsy to me but is a bit too structured and formal for me to call it bohemian. So maybe lean more towards the former rather than the latter if you want to.

But I think there’s a big focus on weddings as cohesively styled events right now that I don’t think is necessary to have a good wedding. So bring in whatever bohemian elements you want to make your day special to you, like a macrame wedding arch or a loose, wildflower bouquet. Both would look lovely next to your dress!

Pretty dress, l love the back particularly, but it is not boho at all, nor do l think it can be made so. If you can afford it, l’d buy what you really want now and sell this one . Or give up your boho idea. ..
PS, l am so sorry you lost the baby . Yes it is common and no indication at all of future success or failure, but still sad .

You’ve been through a very tough event. While this gown is lovely, I think you should go find the boho dress of your dreams. Treat yourself ❤️

I’m so sorry you’ve had such a tough year. The dress is beautiful  I think you just need to add in a flower wreath to your hair and you’ll be fine .Just don’t try to force it  You’ll look stunning in a woodsy wedding!
