With summer slowly but surely arriving, that only means one thing… festival season! So why not swap your wedding heels for a pair of wellies, let your hair down and unleash your inner boho babe. This is something that doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg; sometimes the simple, most cost effective ideas work the best.


A festival wouldn’t be a festival without live music and there’s no better way to get your guests on the dance floor. We absolutely love these guys, who pride themselves on being ‘unlike any other wedding band’ and are guaranteed to get the party started!

So you’ve got the dance floor sorted, now it’s time to unleash the ‘big kid’ in everyone (we all have one), with some outdoor games. Here are some of our favourites…

Giant games

A giant chessboard could also be doubled up and used as a quirky dance floor.


Who doesn’t love Jenga? Especially a giant one!


Your guests can even write their well wishes on the Jenga pieces…



Take your guests back to their school years with some of these old skool classics


Other alternative entertainment…


Entertainment is one of the best ways to give your wedding the wow factor, with these you are bound to leave your guests speechless (lets just hope it’s not the best man!)…

Fire Dancers…How amazing would this be!? If you’re going for a festival theme, extravagant and wacky entertainment such as this would be perfect. If this is something you would be interested in, check out these guys:


Circus Entertainment…Why shouldn’t you go all out on your big day!? These guys have special wedding entertainment, everything from dancers and acrobats to human robots. Yep, robots.


Sky Lanterns…These are a great way to put a finishing touch on your wedding. Why not ask guests to light them just as you are doing your first dance (on your giant chess board, obviously).

These heart shaped lanterns would be perfect! You can get them from here:


Wedding photo booth

Photo Booths…. This is a great way to give your guests a giggle, because lets face it, who doesn’t love a drunken selfie!? Throw in some fancy dress and you are definitely on to a winner!
