A Modern Festival Wedding with Coachella Vibes
When it comes to festival weddings, you can never have too much glitter. Whether it’s glittering bridal make-up or sequins for your wedding confetti, you can use it throughout your wedding day celebrations. You could even rock a personalised leather jacket throughout your big day for an edgier look than a traditional aisle style. Not only will it look cool, it’ll keep you warm in the evening!
We also love the idea of using neon lighting throughout your Coachella-inspired wedding. Hot pink or bright yellow neon signs look incredible used as cake table or ceremony backdrops, but can also be a fun way of directing your guests around your wedding venue.
If you want wedding photographs that ‘WOW’, why not incorporate colourful smoke bombs? They’ll make your wedding photographs totally unique, and they’ll effortlessly transport both you and your guests to a Summer wedding festival.
Festivals are all about music, so why not create a band line-up for your very own special day? You could have various acts throughout your wedding with a stage. You could even create a stylish lounge area using rugs, sofas and armchairs. Alternatively, you could have a dance-floor area near the stage so that your guests can get up and have a dance!
If you’re looking for other ways to keep your guests entertained, consider having a fun temporary tattoo station. This is a great idea for both the younger and older guests and it can be a fab ice-breaker. You could supply various tattoos or you could design personalised stickers to suit your wedding. Temporary tattoos can easily double-up as wedding favours!
If you’re planning an outdoor celebration in the Summer, make sure your guests are kept cool and refreshed. Create a DIY cocktail station or hire an edgy ice-cream van for the afternoon. We can promise that your guests will love them!
Coachella is based in the desert, but if you’re getting married in the UK you can easily create a desert festival wedding theme by using cacti and succulents to decorate your wedding venue. Use terracotta pots to line the aisle or wooden trestle tables. While the decorations may be super simple, they’re incredibly effective!
A modern festival wedding with Coachella vibes is cool, stylish and guaranteed to be unforgettable. Don’t forget to head over to the Perfect Day Bride blog for lots more stylish wedding inspiration for your special day!
