Festival weddings – a new trend!
People getting married in the near future who are thinking about where to have their ceremonies, what dress style they want and which Somerset wedding photographer to hire might also want to consider a theme for their big day – and one of the newest trends to emerge in recent weeks is a mini festival.
If this appeals, there are lots of ways you can make this theme work for you. If you’re worried about what to wear on your feet for a wedding that will take place primarily outside, then there’s no real cause for concern as a pair of ankle boots in leather or suede will look brilliant with your dress, particularly if it’s short. If this doesn’t sound like you, a flat shoe would be a great option – anything but heels, really, as these will make it hard to traverse uneven ground and often get stuck in the mud!
As for decor, you should try and keep it as natural as possible since festivals are al fresco by nature. You could set out a picnic basket for people to drop well-wishing cards in when they arrive at your reception venue, hang lots of paper streamers and beautiful doilies as bunting in lots of vibrant colours, offer guests hot water bottles if the evening turns cold, and have wooden tables with picnic chairs and white tablecloths for the wedding breakfast which will really complete the outdoors/festival feel. And, if you’ve got enough space, why not set out lots of hay bales at your venue as alternative seating when people get tired later?
