Many boho brides seek inspiration from Europe where contemporary dresses tend to be designed with a cooler, more relaxed feel — largely due to the heat in countries like Spain and Italy, but also with a nod to the elegant and informal attitude of Euro-brides. This amazing boho dress by Raimon Bundó works just as well in an English country garden as it does on the beach.
