If you’re a boho bride planning a festival wedding, check out our ‘Top of the Props’ Top Tips to help you plan the perfect shindig!
1. Let Mother Nature do her thing
Some of the most beautiful weddings are also the most natural ones. Although Mother Nature is mostly responsible for this point, we believe we can help enhance the natural beauty around you by adding a few extra special details. Twinkly fairy lights, gorgeous bunting (bold or pastel flags), shabby chic accessories (wooden crates, stepladders, wicker hearts etc), paper lanterns / pom poms – all items which compliment this theme like a dream!
2. Pick décor that bends in well
Floral & Rustic details look great as festival décor. You’ll be amazed at how stunning natural looking materials such as hessian work alongside pretty floral prints. Check out our Hessian table centres, runners and chair bows as an example. Don’t forget, it’s not just the big stuff your guests will notice.. even tiny details such as your favours will have an impact.
3. Super Signage
Our fab wooden direction signs are a definite must have for a festival style wedding. Whether you want to make a feature for photos or spruce up the less attractive areas of your venue – plonk one of these down and you’ve instantly created that festival vibe. (Note: all of our wooden signs can be personalized)
4. The after party!
Encourage your wedding guests to carry on into the early hours by giving them a little treat for their dancing feet. Our hand embellished flip flops presented in one of our vintage style suitcases come in a range of colours and sizes. We don’t want any excuses from your guests… if those tootsies are sore they can simply put a pair on and dance some more!
2. Fancy Dress
If you’re a regular festival goer, then you’ll know that when it comes to dressing up - absolutely anything goes. Encourage your guests to express themselves and have fun by throwing a few fancy dress props in the mix. We’re talking masks, wigs, feather boas, lips, glasses, hats.. you name it. Not only is our vintage style photobooth a super fun feature to have at your event, it's also a really good way to make your guest look totally ridiculous, erm... I mean totally awesome!
