Did you and your husband or wife to be meet at a music festival? Maybe you bonded over your shared love of music? Either way, if you’re both total festival lovers, then it makes sense to channel this shared passion into your wedding day décor with a full on festival theme.
Causal is the key word to keep in mind here. It’s all about laid back fun. Think tents, wellies, food trucks, campfires and even bales of hay. Get creative with little details like access all areas passes, tables named after your favourite concerts and chill out zones for your guests to relax.
Above all, this theme is about having a little fun and throwing off traditional wedding conventions.
The venue is key to getting this theme right. So think beyond the normal hotel/function room style of venue. Instead seek out venues that offer outdoor sections and think tents and glamping. You can hire in a lot of the essentials yourself or with a wedding planner such as myself. There are also several venues that can offer the best of both worlds with festival themed outdoor areas, yet with the comforts of a luxury hotel too, so make sure you do your research before you go ahead.
Table Plan and Signage
While this sort of wedding is much more casual than a traditional wedding and a sit down meal may not be what you’re after, having a table plan is an opportunity to have fun with your favourite bands as names. Or why not have escort cards in the form of an access all areas VIP pass or wristband with each guests name on it. Signage is also important to let guest know how the day/night will work, especially as this sort of theme is a little different to the norm.
Table and Room Décor
Even if your venue isn’t quite a yurt in the middle of a field, you can still give it that festival vibe with the right touches. Think about having a record for each table name, use mason jars filled with tea lights or glow sticks, lots of bunting, string lights, streamers and Chinese lanterns to set the tone.
Think about fun touches like offering guest wellies, have bales of hay to sit on as a chill out zone, rugs for snuggling up with, campfires and think about having food trucks and buffet style dining instead of a formal sit down meal.
