The Best Ideas for Festival Weddings

ideas for a festival themed wedding

With the summer very nearly upon us, I’d hazard a guess that plenty of you are gearing up for festival season… both music and wedding stylee! Here are some of the best ideas to bring that theme to life.

Your seating plan could be laynards

And you could give your guests wristbands to get in!

How about giving your festival it’s own name?

How about an inflatable church to say “I do” in!?

The Inflatable church performs (non-legal) weddings at Bestival every year but you can hire it for your own wedding too!

You should definitely invite your guests to camp overnight!

    We splashed out on the Wedfest wristbands and invites – and they are AMAZING! We’ve had so many nice comments about them, and Marty even accommodated our request to add a pug frolicking among the flowers onto the invite 🙂

  2. Perfect selection of pics – they are making me want to have about 6 different weddings just to incorporate all the special bits!!
