Why You Should Have a Wedstival!
Sometimes one day of celebration just isn’t enough, so why not take your summer wedding to the next level with a fun, on-trend 3 day WEDSTIVAL!
There are many ways you could incorporate the festival vibe, you could include a live band, wristbands as invites, flower crowns, colourful lights and the amazing festival food and drinks.
Get into the festival spirit and let your guests pitch up their tents. This will mean that the party can continue until the early hours of the morning, and will give you the full festival experience. Decorate your tents with bunting, fairy lights and lanterns to make your campsite glow in the evening. Picnic blankets and rugs are also a fabulous addition which will allow your guests lie down and watch the stars. If your budget isn’t too tight, why not treat your friends and family to luxury yurts?
2). Flower crowns
Give your bridal party a bohemian touch with some beautiful handmade flower crowns. Perfect for spring/summer weddings, you can personalise these fun accessories to match the unique style of each of your bridesmaids. We love glitter, lace and greenery, but feel free to use this as an opportunity to get as crafty as you’d like.
What better excuse is there for you and your girl gang to get all dressed up in gorgeous boho gowns? Mismatched bridesmaids dresses are a brilliant option for wedstivals because they instantly add a relaxed touch to your bridal party.
When it comes to invitations, try to think outside the box. To stick to the festival theme, you could create a personalised ‘line up’, or a festival-style wristband. This is a wonderful way to give your guests something memorable and personalised to take away from the day.
Whether you want a formal wedding breakfast or festival inspired food trucks, festival weddings can be quite high-energy, so make sure to feed your guests plenty of good food. Other popular ideas include prosecco bars, crepe trucks and burger vans, so you’ll be spoiled for choice with this fun wedding theme. However, make sure you talk with your venue if you’re planning on hiring food vans because some venues don’t allow them onsite. We recommend hiring a marque or picnic benches to give your guests somewhere to sit whilst they tuck into some delicious food.
It’s hard to imagine a festival wedding without music, so make sure you hire a band or DJ that you trust to get your guests on the dance floor like at Chris and Sarah’s wedding – or make a playlist full of your favourite songs!
What festival would be complete without a pair of bright pink wellies like gorgeous bride Claire’s- pretty and practical!
