Top tips on how to organise a boho-chic wedding from La Pampa Relais in Italy

When we think of getting married, we so often think of a classic wedding celebration in a church or perhaps registry office, with vows followed by pastel coloured confetti and photos, a bouquet tossed into a waiting crowd, and then friends and family ushered to the reception. But why does it have to be that way? We’ve noticed that it really isn’t these days, as today’s weddings tend to reflect the changing attitudes of brides and grooms, being increasingly more original, even unique. Wedding trends that adapt to a modern more free spirited romantic philosophy totally reflect a style that so many of us love, so more brides and grooms opt for the latest fashion to don as they say I do.

With expert advice from La Pampa Relais in Italy, we’ll explain how to organise the perfect boho-chic wedding. A very chic country house, where country-style, gourmet food and refined details, really create a fairy tale atmosphere.

‘Our idea of marriage is one of a rustic holiday, romantic and fun, in close contact with nature and with simple but elegant details that touch the heart’.

1. The location

To organise a boho-chic wedding, the key is the location: ‘Choose a reception venue with an outdoor area including elements that can be adapted to an artistic and creative theme, with a penchant for country and vintage atmosphere’. La Pampa is a country house surrounded by a 14-hectare park in the heart of Benevento countryside, a magical place where time seems to have stopped, where nature surrounds you with its scents and its unspoiled beauty. ‘We can offer the bride and groom a real boho-chic experience, setting elegant outdoor ceremonies near the lake, or a romantic wedding in the vineyard’.

2. The Decor

A suitable location is nothing without the right decor, which is essential to create a boho-chic wedding‘We are inspired by the bohemian and gypsy culture and love to add vintage elements: natural decorations, coloured glass jars, bottles and cans to be used as door flowers or hang from the trees. A boho atmosphere can be perfectly created by using long tables at the reception with bright colours and linen tablecloths, soft floral arrangements, preferably pendants, and wild flowers’. Scattered as decorative elements, try a few touches of retro-looking objects such as vintage suitcases, tins, crochet decorations, old frames or horseshoes’.

3. Eco-chic

It is not only the aesthetics, but also the green philosophy that should guide your choices. A sustainable wedding is an event that conveys emotions and involves your guests in a total embrace with nature. ‘La Pampa Relais is set in the heart of the Sannio, among vineyards and olive groves, where biodiversity and organic are not a recent trend, but an established a habit of many years’. Very little is needed to embellish your special occasion given the surrounding natural beauty: ‘rolling hills, leafy trees, care taken with every detail of the decor, and furniture already halfway between vintage and bohemian immediately setting a boho-chic atmosphere whilst offering enough flexibility to make every event unique’. The estate also boasts a lovely spa, and 10 rooms, all different, decorated with recycled materials and design details dedicated to the ancient crafts of our grandfathers.

4. The Menu

The philosophy that really distinguishes the Relais La Pampa is the love for nature and bio foods; here they promote sustainable cuisine, low on waste and respecting the seasonal nature of produce. ‘We always pay special attention in the kitchen: every menu is custom made with the couple and designed according to the seasonal products that our gardens offer up’. The menu offers an attractive range of products at source, all in a selection of traditional recipes linked to the region.

‘A boho-chic wedding is characterised above all by its outdoor, natural inspiration and informal atmosphere’, and the look of the bride, who we advise to wear a seventies inspired dress and a flower crown, perfectly matching the atmosphere of this location where an eco-friendly philosophy, organic cuisine and attention to detail all come together in harmony.

For months, sometimes even years, brides across the world plan their wedding day and then, when the day comes, the groom stands and thanks the party on behalf of the happy couple. Nevertheless, current trends show that more and more women are taking the floor, breaking convention and making a speech for themselves. Who says we should leave it to the boys? As we celebrate International Women's Day on March the 8th, why not ignore tradition, raise your voice and leave your audience in awe as you, the bride, utter the words "on behalf of my husband/wife and I..."?
