Boho Wedding Decor

1 / 7

If you’d love to have an outdoor wedding but can’t because of the time of year, venue limitations or weather concerns, then this nature-themed event is for you. The bride and groom who want to celebrate nature will love these DIY projects that add personality and style to your soiree. Handmade touches not only save you some money, but they also make your day special and memorable.

Rustic Details

2 / 7

Handmade elements, such as the wooden table numbers, are simple, budget-conscious pieces that anyone can make. Learn how to make these table numbers here. We paired a nontraditional cloche centerpiece with a greenery lattice table runner for a fresh take on the bouquet centerpiece!

Flowering Favors

3 / 7

Wow your guests the moment they get to their seats with these favors! Make a personalized or hand-painted vase as a vessel for one of your favorite plants, flowers or succulents. We know we would love to take home a pretty flowering cactus. Find out how to make yours here!

Bohemian Backdrop

5 / 7

Make a statement at your welcome table, dessert table or food table with a fun backdrop project. We incorporated greenery and created a vignette-framing shape on the wall behind our dessert table. Your guests will also appreciate these backdrops and have fun using them for photo opps. Find out how to make this backdrop here.

Cheese and Charcuterie

6 / 7

Treat your guests to some of your favorite tapas and dishes to make the day special and to reflect your personality. We wanted to incorporate a cheese and charcuterie platter because it looks beautiful and tastes great. We used this slate platter because it makes the cheese and the colors of the fruit, meat and crackers pop. You can also write on this platter with chalk to identify different kinds of cheese.

Naked Layer Cake

7 / 7

A naked layer cake is a minimalist and modern take on the traditional tiered wedding cake. This is a 6-inch cake with four layers, so it is on the small side, but it could be made larger. We like the idea of having mini cakes for each guest or one of these for each table.
