The festival wedding remains a top trend for 2018, and the spring season is the perfect inspiration for this fabulous wedding style. Here at Leez Priory, we’ve hosted dream weddings of all sizes and themes. Festival-inspired weddings are no doubt among our favourites. Our Coach House in particular provides the perfect setting for festival weddings, with its look and feel complementing this rustic theme.
As well as choosing a wedding venue and wardrobe (complete with flower crowns) that matches your festival-inspired wedding, how you decorate your ceremony and reception can make a huge difference. With the right décor, you can convince your guests that they’re at an upscale version of Glastonbury! All the fun without the mud, your festival wedding décor should be a celebration of music, food, culture and your time as a couple. In this blog post, we reveal the top festival-inspired wedding décor ideas for 2018.
Accessorise rustic style
It’s the finer details that make a theme. From your signs and order of day to your favour bags and flower boxes, channelling that rustic festival theme is a must. Ben and Maria’s wedding right here at Leez Priory made light work of accessorising rustic style. The couple used handwritten signs made from pallet wood to direct their guests to where they needed to be throughout the day, as well as stamped wooden flower boxes to house the beautiful blooms on their tables. Hitched shares more festival décor ideas:
“Festival décor can be bright, bold and (bonus!) affordable. Homemade, rustic accessories look great, as do vintage touches like wicker hampers as table centrepieces and fairy lights twinkling as the sun goes down. Bunting and giant paper lanterns look effective hanging from trees and tents.”
Accessorising with all the little things that make a festival the experience it is is another must. Wedding wellies are fitting footwear choices for the bridal party, whilst giving all your guests personalised wristbands and lanyards is a great touch.
Let the games begin
Getting your guests in the festival spirit is easy thanks to the use of lawn games. From Giant Jenga and Connect Four to oversized chess, the possibilities are endless. Andrea and Ben – view their real wedding here – are just one of the couples who married at Leez Priory to use these entertainment options. We’re sure your guests will love them just as much as their wedding party did.
Continue the theme with your food
Adding a fun, festival-inspired menu will ensure that your theme translates in every part of your big day. By working closely with our dedicated, in-house team of chefs and banqueting managers you can create a fresh and creative menu for your wedding breakfast and reception refreshments.
