Yurts adorned with fairy lights, tree lined photoshoots, DIY signposts, drinks in jam jars and soothing guitars – the ingredients of a festival wedding. But how do you bring the spirit of Glastonbury to the bride’s big day without, well, looking like you’re attending Glastonbury?
Allow Jane Norman to help you dress the part as we take a look at 5 of the best wedding guest dresses for a festival style wedding.
Cool in Crochet
The two golden rules of any wedding are:
- Don’t upstage the bride
- Don’t wear white
However if the bride opts for a different colour rule 2 can be ignored. Enter the white crochet maxi. Once something your granny would knit, the crochet trend has been the one-to-watch this year. Crochet shot to fame after prolific fashion designers featured the style on the catwalk spurring the high street to follow suit.
Crochet is a great material for a festival themed wedding because it conjures up images of freedom, Coachella and sunny days spent lazing in fields. Tassel detailing adds to the shabby chic vibe. Pair with an understated foliage crown.
If you want something glam which also looks bohemian then a floaty print number is just the ticket. Festival style is all about the detail and this monochrome print is chic enough to cut it for a wedding. The low dip back and high front hem makes this the perfect boho wedding guest dress. If you’ve got long hair create tousled waves to complete the look.
If you like to dress strictly all-in-black whip out an eye-catching print for the big day. Reach for a maxi dress which will give you a striking silhouette and be easy to dress up or down depending on your personal style. Make it festival friendly with a hibiscus flower clip and a feather plait.
Evoke that dreamy, whimsical feeling with a tile print that’ll have the compliments come rolling in.
If you’re heading to muddy terrain ensure your shoes have enough height to prevent the material from dragging across the ground. This eye-catching number needs little in the way of accessories. Wear your hair up to draw attention to the print and add exaggerated jewellery to complete the look.
The 70s have made a comeback which is great news for festival wedding style. A-line skirts, suede jackets and over the knee boots are all back with a bang. Fringing is also a huge hit so this batwing sleeve dress will ensure you stay on trend.
This piece adds a new dimension to the typical LBD. Dress it up with high heels and red lipstick.
