It’s Glastonbury {aka the Mother of all festivals} this weekend, so to mark the occasion we’ve put together our ‘Bible’ of WedFest top tips and fabulous festival inspiration for those wanting a relaxed festival themed bohemian celebration.

The Scenery Setter…

One of the things that make festivals so special is the way they use the environment around them as part of the experience and, in a similar way, brides and grooms will spend months searching for their dream venue which offers a backdrop that perfectly captures the mood.
This year we’ve seen a fantastic trend in wedding photography that has the bride and groom in the distance or to one side, letting the scenery do the talking for the both of you. Now that’s picture perfect!

Naked Lights…

Ok, so not all venues will allow the ‘festival favourite’ of fire pits and bonfires, but there are some brilliant alternatives (or additions!) that will instantly create that organic, magical atmosphere you’ve been searching for. Fairy lights and Festoons are a Peaktipis ‘must-have’ and the best part is you can hang them pretty much anywhere to give your venue the ultimate festival WOW-factor. Dont forget our Fire pits too that can safely be lit inside the Tipis to create a warm, cosy atmosphere.
It’s all about the light when the sun goes down so (if your venue allows) why not incorporate fireworks, sparklers, and lanterns to complement your outdoor festival theme.

The Starlight Hotel…

It’s reasonable to assume that quite a few of your guests have probably never been to a festival themed wedding (or maybe even a festival) before – and boy are they in for a treat! But why stop at the party? Indulge your guests with the whole experience and offer them the pleasure of sleeping under the stars in the luxury of a real bed! Glamping is the perfect way to finish off the whole festival feel and doesn’t have to cost a bomb. Check out our friends at Tinker’s Bells for some inspiration!

“Life is about using the whole box of crayons”…

If there’s one thing we LOVE about festival weddings, it’s the freedom to create whimsical & fun features that you and your guests will be talking about for years to come! Take your wedding programmes for example – these are really simple ways to lighten up the service & gives your guests something to take away with them. The increasing trends of funny personalised cake-toppers and quirky signs are found to be favourites too for next year!

Go Comfy…

Remember that festival with the black tie dress code and 10-course dinner with silver service? Nah, neither do we and there are plenty of ways to make sure that you and your guests are relaxed and ready to party on your wedding day whilst still keeping things stylish!

A BBQ is a perfect way to let guests chose what they want without it costing the earth and instantly gives you that summer/festival feel. Or you could go super-chilled and have a fish & chips/burger van like a true Glastonbury-goer! Check out our fab friends at Percy & Lilys, with their two vintage Citroen H Vans serving lots of scrumptious gnosh!

…and where better to eat than in a chill-out area on a few benches, deck chairs or beanbags to complete the experience. Ahhhhhhh, now that’s our kind of wedding!

Go Live or Go Home…

All festivals have their differences and it’s pretty hard to spot trends that cater to all couples for an event as personal as a wedding… apart from one brilliant thing. Live music! Nothing says ‘festival’ better than the raw energy created by the musicians’ right there in front of you.

It’s also the perfect opportunity to have your wedding song performed in a bespoke ‘once in a life time’ way – bliss.
