To create a wedding reflective of the hippie within you, consider what aspects of the hippie style you want to capture. Is it the psychedelic hippie style or the relaxed, bohemian style? Free-spirit fashion, flower-child patterns, natural elements and hanging beads can be used to decorate a hippie wedding. Use bright, wild colours for a psychedelic feel or natural earth tones for an "earth child" hippie atmosphere.

Free-Spirit Fashion

Make decisions on hair, clothes and accessories with a relaxed vibe in mind. Avoid glamorous items such as rhinestones, pearls, extreme ruffles and tailored, fitted clothing. Find a dress with sheer off-white layers and simple feminine details. Wear your hair wavy and loose with a goddess headband and gold accessories. Dress the men in grey and tan suits rather than formal black tuxedos.

Flower-Child Pattern

Use a big, bold floral pattern to give your wedding a hippie feel. Have invitations printed in the pattern and create a wedding cake decorated with flowers or floral frosting. Use a swath of floral fabric as a photo backdrop for fun photos of your guests.

Natural Elements

Chose a natural colour palette and natural materials for your decor. Avoid shine and glamour. Reception tables can be decorated in natural burlap or opaque white linens. Use wild flower bouquets and natural elements such as sticks, pebbles and straw for your centrepiece.

Hanging Beads

Line doorways with hanging beads. Leave the beads hanging down or swoop them to the side on a hook. Before purchasing beads, measure the width and height of the main doorways. Beads can be purchased in bulk online in your choice of colour and shape.
