Wedding Style Defined: Rustic Bohemian

Rustic: Outdoorsy, day-in-the-country, casual elegance peppered with quaint, personal details
Bohemian: Artsy, nature-loving flamboyance with lots of personal touches


Before there was “Boho” (Bohemian Chic), there was “Rustic Chic”. Over the years, Rustic Chic branched off in several different directions: Rustic, Rustic Vintage, Eco (Green), and Shabby Chic, to name a few. But, the free-spirited, DIY flower children were left out of all of those directions. Thus, Boho was born (or, more appropriately, resurrected).


Because these styles are so heavily influenced by the outdoors, the color palette is wide open and often incorporates whatever the immediate surroundings entail. But, really, you can’t have a Rustic or Boho wedding without the color green (unless, of course, you’re getting married in the desert and then, maybe, you can get by without it!)

Rustic: Barns, fields, grasses, wildflowers, lanterns, wagons, wood, mason jars, tins, twigs, greenery, and golden light (sunlight/candlelight)
Boho: All of the above, but Boho is also a DIY (do-it-yourself)/community affair so it can incorporate pretty much anything someone can think up. Textiles and small trinkets appear to be popular decorations, as are things that hang (lanterns, twinkle lights, signs, pennants, etc).  Boho is very eclectic and individual, often driven by the personalities of the couple getting married.


The TRADITIONAL is the perfect pocket watch for a Bohemian Rustic wedding. It features a rusticated metal alloy antique bronze toned case. A bronze emblem is the central focus of the generously embellished front cover. That cover opens with a push of the button on the top of the watch stem to reveal a butter cream dial with black and red roman numerals and an open skeleton mechanism display. The case back features a window which permits the wearer to view the intricate mechanical watch mechanism. A matching vest chain completes the look. Hand wind only. No battery is ever required. Whether purchased as a single watch or in a set of multiples as gifts for your groomsmen, this pocket watch is the perfect finishing touch for a rustic bohemian wedding.

A Pocket Watch is Always a Welcome Gift

My father was an ardent pocket watch enthusiast who collected vintage timepieces his entire life. I spent hours examining those watches and speculating about the people who carried them. I imagined their excitement when first receiving the watch, the special occasions the watch was worn to and the ritual passing of the watch to a close friend or family member. I came to understand that each pocket watch is both a special treasure and silent witness to a lifetime of events.

I inherited my father's pocket watch collection and his enthusiasm for these amazing time keeping devices. The process of restoring some of the watches in that collection honed my watchmaking knowledge and skills. The creative juices flowed and I began to experiment with new modern pocket watches. My two sons started wearing those new reproduction models. Wherever they went, people asked about these new pocket watches and where to buy one. People were intrigued. They wanted a pocket watch too but didn't know where to find them.

With my store, PocketWatchPurveyor.com , I help people experience the pleasure of giving and receiving beautiful pocket watches. I source components from around the world to create and assemble a quality pocket watch collection worthy of my customers exacting standards and requirements.
