Alternative Wedding Invites

Let your guests in on your fun theme from the offset by sending some funky festival party invites, why not send a quirky and customised festival entry ticket as your wedding invitation accompanied by a festival wristband or a lanyard. Why not choose one designed in a similar style to those you'd find at any of the major festivals.

Bridal and Bridesmaid Jewellery

Your wedding day jewellery will have a special place in your heart for years to come. Keeping things simple is the way to go for a festival themed wedding. If you're looking for affordable jewellery that looks bang on-trend, boho layering and stacking is where it's at, a tiered necklace and a funky nature-inspired pendant, a stack of rings, an anklet or layered anklets will work perfectly at a more relaxed wedding celebration. Heritage inspired designs have their place and look wonderful with the latest trend for vintage lace dresses. If you opt for pearls, either cultured freshwater or mother of pearl, our nature inspired, or modern designs will compliment your look, either a string of pearls or a single drop pearl necklace will highlight your decolletage beautifully.

Festival Wedding Dresses, Hair and Flower Ideas

Flower crowns are a natural looking alternative to a veil and a wild flower look bouquet will compliment your rural surroundings. Why not add some flower jewellery to bring a flirty feminine style to your wedding outfit.

Wedding braids are very romantic and loose and wavy hair with flowers strewn through will work well in an informal situation.

For a free-spirited bride throwing a festival wedding celebration, a 'Boho Chic' dress will have you looking effortlessly beautiful. Vintage style lace can be a very romantic look and it's a great idea to think about wedding dress designs that incorporate elements of nature and are as romantic and individual as you are. Choose your neckline to showcase a layered jewellery look, maybe have a shorter dress hemline, so you can show off a delicate anklet.

Festival Wedding Food

The food on your big day should scream atmosphere, be quirky, laid back and casual. Think about street food stalls, a wood fired pizza oven, sharing platters or a hog roast, anything that helps your guests move around freely and ups the social vibe. A pick 'n' mix stand, a doughnut wall or an ice cream van are a great way to serve dessert festival style.

Why not add a personal touch and serve bespoke cocktails, which if you're creative could be named after your favourite bands or movies. If cocktails don't float your boat, have a cheeky prosecco van covered in lights and let the bubbles flow.

Festival Wedding Venues

If you are going to have a festival themed wedding, there's only one place it can be - in the great outdoors. Whether you opt for a woodland wilderness, a rustic barn or a yurt, tent or tepee village, for the most idyllic Instagram-ready atmosphere surround yourself with nature. Add to that bright splashes of colour and quirky signage, bohemian touches and you're almost there.

How To Get the Festival Vibe

  • Pom-pom strings and bunting
  • A ribbon tree for guests to tie celebratory notes on
  • Fairy lights scattered through the trees
  • Wild and informal floral arrangements, mis-matched chairs and plates
  • Rugs and cushions create a chill out area

Entertainment

Music is one of the focus points of a festival wedding and a live band always goes down well, compliment with a silent disco filled with your own personal playlists, for dancing until the wee, small hours and you're on to a winner. Making sure there's something for everyone is a great way to make sure your guests will have a fun-filled time.

The Finale

Just like the end of any festival you need that final act! Whether that's fireworks, glow sticks and stories or poems read by the camp fire with toasted marshmallows to dip into melted chocolate, those final moments with everyone gathered will be those you will treasure forever.
