HUNTED : { Wedding Style – Festival & Fairground Fun }

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

For me, a marriage is serious. It should be entered into only with the intention to honour the vows you make on your wedding day. After the ceremony, however, the wedding day itself can and should be unashamed fun.

You have, after all, just made one of the strongest commitments you can make in life, so a little partying to celebrate is deserved.

If you’re looking to maximise the euphoric atmosphere, it’s perfectly acceptable to incorporate a festival or fun-fair vibe. There is plenty of inspiration to be found. To kick-start your planning, I’ve hunted down some ideas and suppliers below.

Wedding Decor

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

When it comes to Festival appropriate wedding decor, it’s not so much a case of style as of entertainment options. It may be unrealistic to replicate a full-scale fairground, complete with ghost train, big wheel and carousel. But you can certainly hire some elements.

Suppliers like Irvin Amusements can provide you with Coconut Shys, Round Games Stalls, and even Dodgems.

#WeddingTip: Be absolutely certain to check with your venue in terms of what is and isn’t permitted and make thorough checks on insurance and liability cover with any supplier. This is equally the case if you’re using your own property or a friend’s field. Where there’s the slightest element of risk associated, prepare ahead so there’s no possibility of something going wrong.

Giant Hat Tipis Weddings Outdoors

For that authentic festival theme, consider switching a traditional marquee for something with a more alternative vibe – like these giant hat tipis via World Inspired Tents. If you go all out and string six together they can accommodate such desires as fire-pits, dance floors and chill-out areas. It’s so festival appropriate, don’t be surprised to find Kate Moss turning up to the event.

Portaloo Green Luxurious Wedding

Everyone knows that festivals = horrible toilets. Don’t let that be true of your wedding and choose luxury portaloo hire, via Elegance Toilet Hire, to give the day a bit of class.

And finally, when you are thinking of the small stylistic details, keep it vibrant and simple. These LOVE letters via Tumblr could easily be created yourself with bright coloured yarn.

Wedding Stationery

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Create the right impression from the start with your stationery design, so your guests will anticipate a festival vibe.

Stationery ideas are easy to come by with a carnival twist. This excellent design from In The Treehouse with a slight Wild-West leaning is but one example.

Bridalwear

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

When it comes to festival bridalwear, whilst you may not want to ditch your dress in favour of denim shorts and wellies, you may want to make little concessions. That could be a vibrant bridal bouquet with stripey lollies tucked in; or vibrant shoes tucked another your dress.

Food & Drink

When it comes to eating, ain’t nothing sweeter than the Fairground.

Give your guests sugar overload with toffee apples and vibrant Pop Cakes. You can also find suppliers who come complete with fairground-esque vans and vehicles serving old-fashioned tea or vintage ice-creams. Like this fantastic Vintage Tea Van via  or Classic Ice-Cream Van via .
