No festival wedding would be complete without music at the heart of it. Those amazing pieces of equipment that project the notes of love! Music speaks for itself, and if like me you find it difficult to put your feelings into words then use the magic of music instead.
walking down the aisle
I love the thought of providing guests with different musical instruments as they walk through the woods to their ceremony. Why not provide your bridesmaids with tambourines to shake as they lead you down the aisle.
decorating the venue
On a budget? Love D.I.Y? Well look no further! Have you thought about using instruments as props? There are so many awesome ways that you can dress your venue with instruments. Here at Festival Brides we love guitars so get your creative fingertips at the ready and start decorating your own guitar as illustrated below? Or alternatively, position them to add a little extra something to your theme.
The perfect photos
Although you will have perfect memories of your big day, photos are the only real evidence of the event. Make sure you choose a photographer that understands your theme and understands YOU! If you and your partner love music, make sure it comes through in your photos. Don’t opt for the ordinary photos that everybody has on their mantelpiece, opt for something quirky, unique and you! Use music in your photo’s…
the wedding speech
Now, I know many men get particularly nervous about the wedding speech or public speaking in general! Does your future husband have a flair for music and a voice to match? How about he sings a song rather than writing a speech as such……?
I’m not sure if any of you saw Tom Fletcher’s (McFly) Wedding Speech…it was awesome!! With over 8 million views, there is no doubt that it has touched the hearts of even the most cynical people! Well it brought me to tears & was such a creative and alternative way of saying exactly how you feel and sharing your love. How about considering this alternative speech?
Last but by no means least, what are you going to send your guests home with? Having experienced the perfect festival vibe wedding, full of music and inspiration they will need a wonderful keepsake to remember your big day. I love the idea of sending them home with a personalized CD full of all your favourite tunes that were played at the wedding or maybe an instrument, such as the maracas above!
Get lost in the music…
