Inspired by a bohemian vibe, a love of the summer and all those sizzling-hot music festivals, we theme your day… festival fun!
If you and your groom-to-be consider yourselves relaxed, chilled-out, carefree, and searching only for the fun in life, then ‘theme your day festival’ could be right up your woodland pathway! This theme captures and celebrates all things joyful when it comes to wedding planning. Think mix ‘n match plates and crockery. Think a huge, informal hog-roast and no seating plan. Think outdoor rugs and bales of hay, lashings of pink lemonade and a troupe of children rushing around and laughing. This is one of the most glorious themes – for guests and bridal party alike – and it’s easy to put together. Here’s our ‘how to’ when it comes to festival frivolity…
The outdoors should feature in a big way. Let Mother Nature be your dazzling backdrop and revel in her whimsy and lack of co-ordination! Consider your lighting carefully and think about dusk ’til dawn activities. We love these colour pop globes and comfy seating around an outdoor fire. Just add s’mores…!
Sensational dresses fit for a bohemian festival style need not be anything short of spectacular! Worried there’s no scope to shine with a festival theme? Think again! This stunning and ethereal dress from Lillian West is perfect – we love its hint of transparency and floral and lace motif. Wear your hair in loose, tumbling waves and a bohemian festival bride thou shalt make!
Mix and match your maids’ looks and experiment with bold, primary colours. Keep flowers loose and not too ‘put-together’, and absolutely have your photos taken amidst the great outdoors!
What better way to tell your guests what to expect that the invite? We love this polka-dot backdrop teamed with bunting (very big for a festival theme… if it doesn’t move, it gets bunting on it…) and wellies! (Also a top tip: just in case, asks guests to bring wellies if you’re planning an outdoor, festival theme – it could make for a fabulous photo too!).
