Need a helping hand with the rest of the planning? Here’s our top tips for the ultimate #WedFest.
At a festival wedding, the usual high heels and fascinators might not be appropriate, so plan ahead for the guests (as well as yourselves) by giving them a checklist of essentials that will help everyone to have a great time. This could include layers to put on (or take off) according to the weather, camping essentials and sensible footwear…and do forewarn them if you’ll be hiring a Portaloo!
A rustic wedding venue that’s all geared-up for festival style events is a smart choice if you want to save headaches over licenses and outdoor areas. Look for venues that have space and scope for tents and marquees and can accommodate live music, camping and adequate site lighting.
Festival décor can be bright, bold and (bonus!) affordable. Homemade, rustic accessories look great, as do vintage touches like wicker hampers as table centrepieces and fairy lights twinkling as the sun goes down. Bunting and giant paper lanterns look effective hanging from trees and tents.
UK festivals often celebrate music – but they pay homage to food, too. If you want your festival-style wedding to be foodie orientated, consider serving a range of locally-sourced snacks and drinks and serve street food such as pizza, paella or burgers.
For the cake, go leftfield and choose a cheese stack, or look for a baker that can deliver a whimsical, organic and chic creation. Naked cakes smothered in fresh berries and flowers suit the occasion, as do tiers presented on a tree stump.
Music is crucial at a festival wedding, so make sure there is room in your budget. Ideally, you want a live band or DJ to help pump-up the atmosphere: setting up a stage also makes it feel authentic.
