Spring and summer are characterized by beautiful scenery, which makes it the best time for an outdoor wedding! You’re probably in the midst of searching for the perfect venue to celebrate your love for one another, so have you ever considered a wedfest? Festival weddings are all the rage at the minute, and you may be surprised how inspiring the natural beauty of the great outdoors can be! It helps to create a beautifully romantic atmosphere. So it’s no wonder that some couples are turning to festivals to help them with their wedding inspiration. We’ve got some top tips provided by Wedding Planners in London, to help you to create the perfect festival-chic wedding atmosphere.
If you’re dreaming of an intimate wedding, then the forest is the ideal place! Imagine… Exchanging your vows beneath beautiful trees and enjoying a unique wedding reception off the beaten path, we can’t think of anything better. A wedding in the woods can be oh so romantic! Nature embodies beauty, and makes the perfect backdrop for you to say your I dos. All you need to do is add a few touches here and there to make the venue fit your style and personality, making your wedding day truly unique!
For the wedding ceremony, we love the idea of having an arch of intertwining branches, hydrangeas, and roses. Or how about draped fabric, lanterns filled with flowers, and crystal chandeliers hanging from tree branches for that ultimate chic feel? A garden inspired wedding altar filled with greenery and flowers is the perfect way to add that wow factor to your wedding ceremony.
If mother nature allows you to, then don’t hesitate to include trees as part of your ceremony decoration. You can gather stumps and branches which make the perfect decorations. We’re thinking long fabric streamers hanging beautifully between the trees to create that rustic-chic feel. If there’s a fallen tree nearby, then why not put it to good use and use it to create a bench to seat all your guests? It’s a super chic and cheap way to decorate your ceremony!
When it comes to the decor for your wedding reception, no festival wedding is complete without a giant tipi or marquee! They’re super versatile and the options for decorating them are endless! We love the idea of using lighting and bunting to frame the entrance and hanging lanterns are always a nice touch too! Tree stumps can add a rustic woodland feel to your tables. Why not use them as a base and group different sized vases and candles on top, they make the perfect centrepieces.
Summer flowers such as sunflowers and daisies are perfect for a boho-chic festival wedding. Little touches of wild flowers here and there will really give a true festival feel to your wedding day! Baby’s breath and lavender are also perfect for a woodland wedding. Be sure to keep it simple, and let the natural beauty of the area speak for itself!
Bunting is another festival wedding must-have! It helps bring your festival wedding to life. With so many different colours, shapes and sizes available, you’re sure to find something to tie in with your theme. Hang it from the trees, inside your tipi or on the backs of your chairs for the perfect boho-chic feel.
If you hire a smaller tipi or tent, you can create a wonderful chill out area for your guests! Festival style seating is a must to lounge in between all the festivities of the big day. We love the idea of scattered cushions and some blankets for that real festival vibe! If you want to go all out, how about tents for your guests to sleep in on your wedding night! This way they can enjoy the celebrations until the end of the night, and then camp underneath the stars.
For a really unique festival wedding theme, you can hire giant outdoor games which are super fun for your guests. A giant chessboard is a quirky and fun idea that can also be doubled up and used as a dancefloor during the reception!
If you feel like jetting off and getting married somewhere else, then where better than a festival wedding in the UK? With fab hidden gems available in London, Surrey and Kent, you can celebrate your wedding in a beautiful private woodland estate! And, with summer just around the corner, think about all of the fabulous fresh flowers and blooming trees to take your wedding decor to the next level! Think boho-chic when it comes to decorating and accessorising.
