Now Trending: 14 Reasons to Love Boho Bridesmaid Dresses

by Abbi Morgan June 16, 2017 10 Comments

I love summer. The great weather, spending time outside, outdoor BBQ’s, and cute summer clothes make it the perfect season. You know what’s best about summer though? Summer weddings! And what better way to enjoy the season than with boho bridesmaid dresses. You don’t have to wear flower crowns and walk barefoot to enjoy a boho look. Subtle details, soft fabrics, and yes florals, can give you the desired cute and carefree look.

Not quite on board with boho yet? Keep reading! We put together a list of why we love the boho theme and even included nine of our favorite Kennedy Blue dresses!

5 REASONS WHY WE'RE OBSESSED WITH THE BOHO THEME

1. It's easy! You don't have to create a huge floral crown and search Etsy for hours looking for "boho accessories" to nail the look. A few simple details here and there can help you achieve your theme. 

2. It's comfortable! The bohemian look is all about natural, carefree, and flowing dresses. Ditch the skin tight dresses and don your A-line skirts for a look that is not only super cute but also sooooo comfortable. Our favorite boho fabrics are chiffon and embroidered lace. These fit with the bohemian theme because they are soft and free flowing, and again also super comfortable to wear! Flowing dresses are flattering on a variety of figures, which means your whole bridal party can look fabulous in whatever dress you choose for them.

3. It matches your wedding palette! Worried about making the boho vibe work with your dream wedding colors? The boho vision usually consists of soft, pastel-like colors. Sage green, lilac, slate blue, and blush pink dresses are all natural colors that are easy to pair with a variety of palettes. Another plus: pastels are so beautiful and usually flattering on a variety of skin tones!

4. It’s all in the details! A simple floral hair accessory, braided hair, anklet bracelets, strappy sandals, or a lush, green bouquet can complete your boho look without going overboard. Again, you don’t have to walk barefoot to be a boho bridesmaid (though we love that look too). The details of your outfit can imply “boho”. Simplistic dresses with gorgeous bouquets or a mismatched bridal party are both great ways to stay in theme.

5. You can express your personality! What better way to show off your style than by adding details of it to your wedding? You can make your wedding truly one of a kind by having it reflect your personality. But what if your bridesmaids don't all love boho? Have a mismatched bridal party! Kennedy Blue has a variety of dresses that can fit with the bohemian theme, which means your 'maids can pick and choose to fit their personal style. Keep reading to see our favorite boho dresses that we're sure your bridesmaids will love!

9 BOHO BRIDESMAID DRESSES YOU'LL LOVE!

We love boho dresses! We brought together 9 of our favorite Kennedy Blue boho bridesmaid dresses. Available in a variety of colors, these dresses could be the perfect complement to your perfect wedding day! Try these dresses on in your size and color with our At Home Try-On Program!

Thea. One of my all time favorite dresses, Thea is the perfect definition of boho. The off the shoulder straps, ruched bodice, and A-line skirt all come together to create a chic and cute boho look. Add a pendant necklace and a floral hairpiece to complete the look!

Two-piece dresses. Unconventional and cute, two-piece dresses are the newest trend for the modern bride. Mix and match different tops and skirts to create the perfect boho look. The lace tops are classy and such a cute boho complement. Choose from tulle, satin or luxe chiffon in long or short skirts to have an effortless mismatched bridal party.

Everly. Ruffled perfection, Everly’s unique wavy look almost begs to be included in a boho wedding. A-line dresses already create a comfortable, flowy style and Everly’s ruffles just add to the look! Create a truly unique wedding party by mixing and matching Everly with other chiffon dresses. (P.S it also has pockets! How great is that?)

Mackenzie. Simply elegant, Mackenzie is a perfectly effortless dress. The ruched bodice and unique criss-cross strap pattern on the back complete the carefree look every boho bride wants. Made from a soft luxe chiffon fabric, Mackenzie is free flowing and easy to wear. We love it! Looking for a short dress? Check out Mackenzie’s knee length version, Luella!

Elizabeth is the definition of simplistic elegance. The open back with dainty straps are sure to give your bridesmaids a modern look, but the simple cut will fit your boho theme. Finish off the look with a dainty flower crown and a beautiful bouquet!

Ariel. For a bold and beautiful boho look, Ariel is a sure way to complement your theme. If you are looking to create a bridal party that is unique from everyone else's, you have found your dream dress! We love the sequin pattern on Ariel, and you can't go wrong with criss-cross straps.

Isabella. An asymmetrical ruffled blouse with an A-line skirt, Isabella is simply beautiful. We love the soft chiffon fabric and easy flow to the dress. Isabella is loose throughout the stomach and hips, which means it flatters a variety of figures! And how cute are those criss-cross straps?

Layla. On the more chic side of boho, Layla is a beautiful, flowy bridesmaid gown. The lace bodice is an excellent complement to the boho theme.

I love the boho wedding concept! Lately I’ve seen a lot of articles about how it’s overdone, but I really think there is always a way to individualize the theme for your own wedding ☺️

Measurement Guide

Taking Your Measurements

For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor. 

**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.




Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).

Waist size:  While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.

Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.

Choosing your correct size

Compare  these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
