Among the multitude of outdoor wedding themes, none captivates the spirit quite like a festival celebration! With tents, teepees, glow sticks, and sparklers, festival weddings promise an exciting experience for all.
If you’re seeking inspiration to elevate your wedding festivity, explore our top festival essentials that will take your festival-themed wedding to new heights!
1 — Weird & Wonderful Wellies
A festival bride’s must-have (and for the bridal party) is a pair of cosy wellies. While classic Hunter boots remain a solid choice, consider unconventional options. Seek out wellies in hues and patterns that align with your wedding colours to outfit your bridesmaids and groomsmen. For a touch of preparedness, consider providing inexpensive wellies for guests in case of rainy weather.
2 — Exclusive VIP Passes
Ditch conventional invitations and grant your guests VIP access to your special day through festival-style tickets, lanyards, or wristbands. Infuse key details like the venue and day-of timeline with Glastonbury ticket aesthetics, ensuring a headliner-worthy excitement. Remember to position your vows as the main act!
3 — Embrace Tents and Teepees
No authentic festival wedding is complete without a distinctive tent structure. Marquees, Spiegeltents, Yurts, and Teepees all exude fun and perfectly suit an outdoor wedding, particularly amidst unpredictable British weather
4 — Create Chill Seating
Festival-style seating is a must, providing your guests with comfortable spots to unwind between the festivities. Scatter an array of deck chairs and picnic blankets around your venue, or consider cushions atop hay bales for a cosy touch.
5 — Get Colourful
Decorating in line with a festival theme allows your creative spirit to roam free. Bunting, streamers, festoon lighting, abundant floral arrangements, and rustic accents contribute to the lively festival atmosphere.
6 — Light Up the Night
True to festival spirit, your guests will likely dance into the night. Elevate your festival wedding with the inclusion of glow sticks or sparklers. These additions not only enhance the celebratory vibe but also yield captivating photo opportunities.
7 — Lavish Lavatories
Rounding off the festival experience, don’t overlook the portable restrooms! Transform this necessity into a luxurious escape from traditional festival facilities. Elevate the ambience with thoughtful details like full-length mirrors and well-appointed washroom baskets, ensuring your guests feel like VIPs on your momentous day.
