Monday Mood Board: A Chic Summer Time Festival Wedding
Good morning lovelies, how are you all today? To banish away those Monday Morning blues we have some serious pretty over on the blog today, and it comes in the form of rather dreamy festival wedding inspiration. This is no ordinary festival wedding though, we are focusing on a much more elegant, Bohemian theme to add a touch of luxury.
With both festival season and wedding season in full swing there’s no surprise why more and more couples are opting for a festival inspired wedding in Summer. Especially with the temperatures we have seen over the past few weeks, too. Oh, and we can too thank the endless styling possibilities, quirky and cutesy vendors and the blank canvas venues for making this such a popular theme amongst Brides and Grooms-to-be.
We are rounding up our favourite suppliers, colour schemes and details for a very, very pretty ‘Monday Mood Board‘ feature. As always, do let us know your thoughts, whether you are seeking advice for your own festival wedding and if you liked today’s feature in the comments section below.
Blooms & Styling Ideas…
A festival inspired wedding is a great excuse to go all out on the larger than life blooms and extra pretty styling (we’re struggling to think when isn’t, to be honest), whether you choose a venue that works as a blank canvas or not, showing your personalities through styling will be a great way to bring your theme to life.
Let your imagination run wild with colourful flowers, all things pretty, and dainty rustic details. We adore the pastel colours which create natural elegance and the look of just hand picked flowers will create an authentic look that will just look breath taking. Of course, having flowers in your hair is an essential!
This time of the year, there are a vast selection of beautiful flowers for you to choose from. Picks we love are Peonies, Hydrangea, Roses and Stocks.
What’s your ideal summer flower?
For the Fashion-Forward Bride…
The festival wedding is undoubtedly a lot more informal than what it say would be in a stately home or enchanted castle. Choose dresses with layers of floating tulle, chiffon and silk. These are much more lightweight so not only will you be able to move freely on the dance-floor, but too keep you much, much cooler inside a Marquee or Tipi.
Jenny Packham gowns are undoubtedly made for the bohemian, off-beat bride. They’re relaxed and have an informal vibe about them yet are SO, so dreamy. Often adorned with dainty embellishments and in gypsy styles – there’s no reason why a Jenny Packham gown couldn’t be the designer for you. I was going to pick my favourite from the 2017 collection, however I’m definitely stuck between Nashville, Harmonica and Fern. Which one’s your favourite?
Then onto Hermoine De Paula. Oh my. These dresses are something from heaven. They’re all completely bespoke and embellished with teeny tiny details that are personal to the bride and couple. The sheer fabrics are just what we need for a summer wedding plus, I don’t think I’ve seen anything prettier in a long time.
Food & Sweet Treats
This theme would be particularly perfect for you if you have a love for entertainment and music. Take advantage of the wide open space you have hired for your wedding and opt for bands, musicians and vocalists to perform all day and night. Of course, this will provide a great atmosphere for your festival wedding.
As said above, a festival wedding theme is also the perfect excuse to have lots of variety’s of food or mobile bars. Why not have different options that your guests can enjoy. We’re thinking ice cream buffets, larger than life dessert tables and cocktail stations. It’s a perfect way to add a little more personality into your day. Take a look at our Approved Supplier List for the best in the industry.
Of course a festival wedding wouldn’t be complete without a blank canvas to house your wedding in. Our lovely suppliers, Bar Events Uk have vast range of Tipi’s that can be adapted to suit from 50-100 wedding guests, providing a magical alternative from the traditional white box marquee. They can create a bespoke package to suit any budget and can provide extras such as a fully stocked bar, lighting, styling, fire pits and much, much more.
Oh, and we do love a Yurt, too. Yorkshire Yurts beautifully hand-craft theirs to provide an oh-so magical setting for a chic wedding. The side canvas can also easily be unhooked if you have a warm sunny day, so you can take full advantage of the weather. These structures really are guaranteed to impress.
With a team of dedicated staff, we can design a fully bespoke styling package to ensure your event has that added ‘wow’ factor. We realise how important your event can be and we are always happy to help so you can relax in the knowledge that you are in safe hands.
