First of all, a little bit of history.
Do you know where does the “Bohemian” word mean and where is it from? We surfed a while trying to discover a little bit more about this famous term, and we found out that it dates back to the early 1800´s.
Nevertheless, even that the word comes from the Czech Republic as a way to refer to the gypsies and Romany, the “bohemian” word became very popular since authors such as George Sand started to use that word with a very different meaning; in 1932, the Dictionnaire de l’Academie Francaise, described that meaning: “One who lives a vagabond unregimented life without resources, who does not worry about tomorrow” (150, translation by EAG).
The curious thing in here is that most of people who described themselves as bohemian, actually were bourgeoisies that, during youth, tried an independent/free life, related to artistic activities. But it was just a phase they lived before returning to their comfortable habits and careers.
Now that it is clear, let’s submerge into the beautiful bridal bohemian looks and some basic advices to get the original boho style!
