Think About The Venue

If you’re looking to have a festival style wedding for your special day, then it’s important to think carefully about your wedding venue. Some wedding venues will work really well as a festival backdrop on your wedding day. However, some wedding venues will work better for a festival style wedding than others.

In this blog post we share some top tips on the best festival style wedding venues and some wedding festival style décor inspiration too.

The Tipi!

Many couples find that a farm style wedding venue, a barn wedding venue or a field where tipis or tents can be put up. All of these are brilliant venues for a festival style wedding and with the right wedding décor they can be made personal, and your loved one.

Tipis are a really popular venue for a festival style wedding. This is because they are so versatile. You can create a warm and chilled party atmosphere with a tipi with ease. They can be dressed elegantly and beautifully, and as many personal touches as you choose.

The Decoration

Festival style wedding décor for a tipi can include bunting, balloons and flower walls. All create a really nice atmosphere and offer great backdrops for photos too. Fairy lights, lanterns and festoon lighting all work really well and add romance to the wedding venue as the sun goes down. These can be used both inside and outside the wedding venue.

Faux flowers and ivy around the poles of the tipi look really beautiful, especially when fairy lights and intertwined. If you can have an open fire pit area in your field too this looks great with benches or hay bales around it. This can be covered with drapes, sheets or hessian fabrics to match that theme.

Colour Scheme

Think about your colour palette. You could go for a selection of bright and UV colours for example. Alternatively, you may prefer a set selection of colours, in which case you can easily have festival wedding décor to match your chosen colours. Natural greens are a great option for a festival wedding colour palette. This can be achieved through flowers, foliage and ivy for example. These can be real plants or faux, which often works out more affordable.


Festival weddings are and should be a more laid-back affair. Think about seating, table settings and props. Make sure these all fit with the theme. Don’t forget about being weather safe too! The Great British weather can’t always be relied upon.
