December is a season for celebrating. From Hanukkah to Christmas to Kwanza, there is no shortage of reasons to give and share cheer. But long before any of these modern holidays existed, the winter solstice was busy bringing loved ones together.
Though it’s the longest night of the year, each one that precedes the solstice is gradually shorter and shorter. It’s the moment when the light gradually grows, leading the world into warm renewal. And much like the commitment two people make to honor and cherish one another, it’s a true turning point that calls for some serious celebration.
Even if your family is complaining about being busy, regardless of whether they resonate with its significance, the winter solstice is a highly romantic time of year and a symbolic day to start your forever.
So, sisters of the moon, bohemian brides-to-be, here is a curated collection of boho wedding dresses befitting of solstice nuptials.
