I think the dress is perfect as it! I would do a loose, curly side braid and a flower crown and you’d look like a boho princess!

I think removing the puffy underlayer would do the trick. Sleeves don’t come to mind when I think of boho looks but maybe it depends on what kind? Loose curly side braid as suggested above would be perfect. 😀

I think making it a little less puffy would probably work. I also love the look of head chains and loose curls 🙂

alliebamabride :   I’d leave the dress as is and work on the accessories – flower crown, for sure.

What are you carrying for a bouquet?  That could help with the boho look too.  Maybe a sprig of dogwood?  Or a small bouquet with ribbons flowing from it?

I think with the right accessories (hair piece or crown, jewelry and sandals… Maybe even your bouquet), I think you could see what you’re imagining.

I don’t think it has to be princess-y at all. My dress was a ball gown. (Google Charlotte by Anne Barge blue willow bride)

We removed most of the pouf (actually I bought a sample with it pre-removed) and I put flowers in my hair and had a very loose bouquet and I don’t think I came off as princess.

to go more boho than me, I think a darker lipstick and some darker eye makeup would push it in that direction, some bangles perhaps, dangly earrings (maube with feathers) would help.

good luck!

ps sorry I don’t have more photos.. I’m anxiously waiting to get them back!! This Saturday is the contracted date. This was a sneak peak.. The flowers in my hair were actually several bright colors but better seen from the other side. Still, I think you can see the vibe isn’t “princess”

Eta: can you post a pic of the front not in black and white? Curious about th pattern on your bodice. The back looks lovely!

I think the bohemian look can be achieved by your hair, first of all. If you do an updo, do something really loose and flowy, with volume on the top and sides. If down, something similiar to the pic posted above. I’d keep your jewelry to more natural materials — freshwater pearls, mother of pearl, or druzy would be a good idea. Also, I’d stay away from a necklace, and do dangling earrings, maybe a few bracelets, and multiple thin rings. For your hair, a flower crown is a good option. If you want something less “basic”, I’d do a flower-type hair clip.

I wouldn’t change a thing about the dress.  Do boho styled hair and accessories and you will look perfect.

just ad short lace or tulle sleeves that hang off you shoulders I dont think the other alterations are needed.
