Don’t underestimate the power of a good, loose hair style to convey boho!

I agree, you can boho it up 🙂 My first thought was to find a more delicate veil, and I see lots of great options above. Also, bouquet, hair and jewellery will set the tone. Have fun styling bee!!

You can totally do boho with this dress.  The guipure lace definitely has that vibe!  I agree with everything that’s been said….long loose flowy waves, relaxed bouquet, gold vintage jewellery, flower crown.  The dress is beautiful and timeless.  I love it!

I agree with some pp, cap veil and flower crown, that would totally transform your look into more boho.

That said you look completely amazing in the dress which I think is quite modern, especially with the a little bit sporty seam down the front, and it would look incredible to embrace a modern look as well. You honestly have the figure to do whatever you want in that dress 👰

That dress is amazing!!! 

I think it is definitely the veil that is throwing you off the boho wagon…I agree that a floral crown whether fresh or jeweled, along with a loose waved hairstyle would be perfect to complete your look…

body jewllery is also a great idea…hand/finger chains, arm bands and foot jewels would add to the look, as well as leather cords or feathers in your hair with some braids 🙂

From your post I was expecting a dress that was frilly, fluffy with sparkle, satin or glitzy details- but not at all! I really like it. For a lace dress it has an amazing minimalist look- I love that front seam and the very simple straight neckline- really unusual and totally adaptable to a boho look.

To really blend boho with this particular dress, you need a drop veil, not a fluffy bouffy one like you’re wearing. A drop veil just goes over the head, simply pinned, it’s very unfussy. You could pair it with a gold leaf Grecian headband, or a pearl/metal/glass hairvine or a flower crown. That will accentuate the elegance of the dress but add a boho touch too. Like this:

 

This is a Grecian style hairpiece. Choosing just metal, no sparkles will keep it earthy and boho.

This veil is another idea if you think the drop veil is too much hassle. It’s very boho.

And even without actual accessories you can work in a very boho feel by plaiting your hair- some examples:

 

If you look up a bee on here called Angelina Gonzalez you can see her stunning and subtle boho look. It was one of the most popular recaps ever a few months ago. She did a drop veil and metallic forward-sitting halo/hairpiece with a very simple dress. I think that is the way to do boho to work with your dress, but if you prefer the full on flower-crown thing that would also work!

Personally I wouldn’t go too over the top with too many boho hand chains, feathers and accessories because this dress does have a beautiful simplicity you don’t want to overwhelm and ruin.

Anything lace can go boho!  Wear your hair in a side braid or fishtail with waves.  Add some chunky earrings from Kendra Scott, a flower crown, and some stacked turquoise/gold bracelets and you are GOLD!

 

Your dress is beautiful and you look gorgeous!
