Festival and DIY weddings have quickly become increasingly popular for couples seeking a unique and sustainable wedding experience. Embracing the spirit of festivals, more and more couples are choosing to celebrate their love amidst the beauty of nature, creating memories that are not only lasting but also eco-friendly. In this blog post, we explore the enchanting world of sustainable, festival-style weddings set against the backdrop of the West Sussex countryside.
The Allure of Festival Style
Festival-style weddings are all about breaking free from tradition and embracing a more relaxed and carefree atmosphere. Inspired by music and arts festivals, these weddings often feature bohemian decor, vibrant colors, and a sense of communal celebration. In the heart of the English countryside, this style takes on a unique charm, blending the rustic beauty of nature with the whimsy of a music festival.
Sustainability is at the heart of the festival-style wedding trend. Couples are increasingly choosing eco-friendly decor options such as recycled materials, biodegradable confetti, and reusable items. Wooden signs, vintage furniture, and DIY decorations add a personal touch while minimizing environmental impact. The goal is to create a magical atmosphere while leaving behind only memories, not waste.
Ethical Catering and Local Delights
The farm-to-table movement plays a significant role in sustainable weddings. Couples can choose local, seasonal produce for their catering, supporting nearby farmers and reducing the carbon footprint associated with transportation. Food trucks and stalls can add a festival vibe, offering a variety of delicious, locally sourced treats for guests to enjoy.
Attire and Fashion Forward
Festival-style weddings allow for a departure from traditional wedding attire. Couples often opt for bohemian, flowy dresses, and relaxed, yet stylish, suits. Embracing sustainable fashion, brides may choose dresses made from organic fabrics, and grooms might opt for suits that can be worn beyond the wedding day. The emphasis is on comfort, style, and a nod to the free-spirited nature of festivals.
Entertainment and Activities
Incorporating festival-style entertainment is crucial to creating a lively and memorable atmosphere. Live music, fire dancers, or even a makeshift photo booth can add a touch of festivity. For a more immersive experience, couples may consider organizing outdoor games, workshops, or nature walks to engage their guests in the beauty of the surroundings.
