Your guide to the perfect festival inspired wedding

Your guide to the perfect festival inspired wedding | CHWV

Enjoy the ultimate festival wedding this spring by incorporating all of our stylish and exciting tips!

When it comes to festival weddings, every little detail counts - from your choice of attire to the food on offer and all those bits of décor. If you’re short on ideas, don’t worry help is at hand with our ultimate festival wedding guide…

Make the announcement

Let your guests know exactly what's in store with festival-themed invites, much like your regular ticket stubs. You may even like to include a programme of what to expect, with details of performances and food options.

On the day itself, set the scene with fabulous signs. Showcase the details of the day and include timings for your guests and use plenty of wooden signs to pinpoint the different areas of your epic event.

Festival chic

Dressing for the occasion is essential! Ditch all the formalities for an outfit that’s tailored to the outdoors and has a fun festival feel. Laid back boho style dresses work particularly well for the festival wedding, as do pretty features like lace cap sleeves, shorter gowns, or off-the-shoulder style dresses.

Amazing accessories

Don’t forget to style your hair in keeping with the look too. Pretty hair chains and floral crowns add that perfect finishing touch to any festival bride. Loose, boho waves and fishtail plaits also complement the look.

Why not opt for stunning gold temporary tattoos too instead of more traditional jewellery too? You might even like to have your very own temporary tattoo parlour on site – so that guests can all adopt that festival vibe.

Stylish party

It’s not just that bride that should be embracing the look; the bridesmaids should be too in boho-inspired, flowing gowns. Opt for bright colours or perhaps dress them all in white. Alternatively, you can go for patterned gowns with lots of florals.

Don’t forget the wellies either! Ideal for outdoors affairs or just for the photos, wellies are a must for all festival-goers. You might even like to include them in your décor too!

A festival of colour

Nothing quite says festival like colour – so don’t be afraid to embrace it. Choose a bright and bold bouquet, finished off with pretty ribbon streamers. Opt for a wow-factor wedding cake, with a hand-painted design or an abundance of bright blooms. Add lots of bold and colourful decorations too – for example, bunting, pom poms and pretty paper designs.

The music scene

If music has inspired your festival wedding, why not theme your day accordingly. Design your own record guestbook, name your tables after popular Glastonbury stages, and make an extra special playlist for the night.

Foodie feast

Serve up all your favourite delights with a laid back feast. Barbecues and hog roasts are great ideas for your festival wedding. Come evening, you might like to hire some fabulous food trucks too – serving everything from stonebaked pizzas to fish and chips and even Prosecco!

Treat your guests to a range of extra special treats too, by handing out festival tokens or wristbands that promise a free drink.

The little extras…

There are a few things that certainly wouldn’t go amiss at a festival wedding – light up letters and a fun photo booth being two of them. Both props are a great way to add character and excitement to your day and are sure to wow your guests.

We also love the idea of a chill out area – a space your guests can escape too and soak up the vibe. Perhaps hire a mini tipi or create your own tent; alternatively, you could just lay some haybales, colourful blankets and cushions.

The final act

Finish off your evening with celebrations by the campfire. You could toast marshmallows, have a sing song, or dance away to the beats of your favourite band.

A sparkler send-off or glow stick send-off is a great way to end your day, as the two of you head off to your honeymoon suite. Just imagine the photos!

The morning after

If you’ve got guests staying on site, or perhaps camping for the night in true festival style, why not set up a fun breakfast spread. Bacon baps, pancakes and waffles are sure to be popular and can even be served up from a traditional food van.
