The Rise and Rise of the Festival Wedding

14th March 2017

Happily Ever After Sign

One of the growing trends in the wedding industry over the last few years is the festival wedding. It’s not difficult to see the appeal, particularly for couples who love live music and camping.

Festival weddings combine the great outdoors, music, entertainment, camping, street food and fun. They are much less formal than traditional weddings and a great opportunity for the happy couple to add their own personal stamp to the nuptials.

Celebrities such as Kate Moss have helped to push these so-called alternative weddings into the mainstream, and they have now become a firm feature of the wedding scene.

There are no rules, of course, and that’s one of the great things about festival weddings. Anything goes. However, many couples plan the following into their big day:

  • A picturesque field, meadow, woodland, farmland, somewhere in the English countryside or rural suburbs
  • Tents; whether you and the wedding party decide to stay overnight or not, you’ll need tents for eating, drinking, inclement weather, or just chilling out
  • Live bands and entertainment
  • Street food served from vans or tents
  • Chill-out zones
  • Wellies
  • Candles, lanterns and fairy lights
  • Quirky signage
  • Flower crowns and decorations
  • Custom festival wristbands to serve as a memento of the day

Festival Wedding Wristbands

We’ve found that a growing number of couples, whether they opt for a traditional or alternative wedding, are ordering custom wristbands for their celebrations. They are particularly popular for hen parties and stag nights, and we are receiving increasing numbers of orders for wedding day celebrations. The bands help the couple personalise their wedding and provide a memento of their day.

We provide a range of different styles of wristbands including silicone, fabric/festival bands, snap bands and secure paper bands. Each can be customised with your choice of colours, artwork and message. Our prices are competitive and won’t make a dent in your overall budget. We also provide a fast and efficient turnaround time.

If you would like to discuss wristbands for a hen party, stag party or your wedding day, contact Carrie at or on 01524 230 300.
