If a Boho wedding is your dream look for your wedding day then vintage rugs are pretty much essential ! Here I’m going to give you some top tips on how to use vintage rugs on your big day!

Tip 1 - Rug aisles - There a two different options when it comes to creating this boho classic walkway. Firstly you could use one long runner to make the walk space for the bridal party clear, especially as more and more venues tend not to have a traditional aisle way its nice to create one yourself. We have two beautiful runners available on our website which are perfect. They will even will stop your heels sinking into the grass if outside!

If runners aren’t your thing why not consider using a selection of rugs in various sizes and shapes but all having a similar colour scheme. Layer these up or space evenly down the aisle… Boho brilliance! We have hand selected a few of our favourite rugs which we know work perfectly together, check out our rug aisle package here


Tip 2 - Boho seating areas - Use these inside or outside but create a defined area by using a large rug or selection of rugs and some simple seating such as peacock, wicker or cane chairs (we have all of these options ) Along side the seating add little side tables, coffee tables or even vintage trunks and you have a perfect area for your guests to relax.

Tip 3 - The ceremony area - Use with a boho backdrop such as a triangular arbor, moongate or archway even a macrame hanging! Standing on the rug to say your vows makes the perfect boho ceremony set up and photos to remember for a life time. We have a large selection of vintage rugs in various shapes, sizes and colours. Check them all out on our website or talk to us to help you create the perfect package.
