Share your love for music and make the most of the outdoors with this unique, casual, and rustic wedding theme. In this blog post, we will give you 5 tips for planning a festival wedding that will be sure to impress your guests!

Find the perfect blank canvas wedding venue

When planning a festival wedding, it's important to find the perfect location that can accommodate your vision. Look for a venue with plenty of outdoor space that will allow you to set up tents, stages, and other decorations.

If you're not sure where to start, look for blank canvas wedding venues in your area. A marquee or tepee venue is the perfect choice as you'll be able to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about the weather.

Wedding festivals how to plan and source suppliers

Pick your favourite food trucks

One of the best things about festival weddings is the variety of food options! Instead of having a traditional sit-down meal, why not consider hiring a selection of food trucks, or having a BBQ instead?

This will give your guests plenty of choices and ensures that everyone will find something they like. From tacos to pizza, there's something for everyone! We love Crepe Britain for serving up something a little different.

Select your music line-up

Music is a key part of any festival wedding, so it's important to select your line-up carefully. Putting together an actual festival line-up might be outside of your budget, so look for a wedding covers band that can play all your favourite artists instead.

As the sun goes down and the band is done playing, switch to a collaborative playlist to keep everyone on the dancefloor until the early hours.

Make space for entertainment

When you plan an outdoor wedding, you'll have a lot more space for entertainment. So don't be afraid to think big! This is the perfect opportunity to hire a fire-breather, stilt walker or even a full casino. If you're looking for something a little more low-key, consider setting up a photo booth or hiring some fun lawn games like giant Connect Four, Jenga or even Mini Golf.

Don't forget the little touches

The best thing about festival weddings is the attention to detail. So don't forget to add some personal touches that reflect you and your partner's personality. This could be anything from custom-made wedding signs to fun photo props. If you're running with a music-themed wedding, you could name each table after a favourite band or record.

And don't forget the stationery! A unique wedding invitation will set the tone for your big day and let your guests know what they can expect. So, why not send your guests festival tickets and custom printed lanyards in place of the usual wedding invitations?
