Ibiza Wedfest! – 6 Essential and Inspiring Ideas for a Festival Style Wedding in Ibiza

Planning a festival wedding in Ibiza? We have put together some fun festival wedding essentials and inspiring ideas to help you plan the perfect festival style shindig!

Festival-style weddings are a huge trend this summer, they’re so much fun for you and your guests.

Given we’re in the middle of wedding season and planning to hit some field with our camper and floral hair garland every weekend, we thought those of you planning your weddings would probably be feeling fairly inspired to have a festival wedding in Ibiza.

Essential and Inspiring Ideas for a Festival Style Wedding in Ibiza

Festivals are hugely popular events in Ibiza, celebrating music, food, and culture.

If you want a wedding that’s entertainment-focused, informal and all about fun, food, and flower crowns then a festival-themed wedding is perfect for you.

From live music and performance to delicious food and drink, festival style nuptials throw the rulebook away in terms of format and allow a bride and groom to really express their personalities. And, if your guest list is large, it’s a great way to make the most of your budget and still give the guests a great time.

Deep Roots Catering has a lot of different festival-style food choices ideal for your main meal, as a late night snack or second-day food option Festival Style Food. We offer a casual, laid back alternative to your traditional 4-course wedding meal. From sweet to savory we’ve gathered much different Fun Festival Style Food

1 Set the Tone

Set the tone for a festival wedding from the off with shabby chic wedding invites that reflect the event: ticket-style invites work really well. Festival weddings may involve lots of additional info, as they’re not usually as simple as “turn-up-eat-a-meal-have-a-dance” style receptions.

2 Fabulous Floral Crowns – Festival Essentials 

A floral crown is a must for any festival style bride! Not only are they fun to wear but they make for a perfect weekend DIY project too.

At a Festival Style Wedding in Ibiza, the usual high heels and fascinators might not be appropriate. Help everyone to have a great time planning ahead by giving your guest a checklist of essentials.

3 Relaxed Ceremony

If you’re having a Festival Style Wedding reception in Ibiza, it makes sense to have a relaxed ceremony that suits the tone. You could introduce your festival theme by filling the ceremony room with hay bales and wildflowers.

4 Super Signage – Festival Ready Venue

Creative and fun signage lets your guests know where all the festivities are taking place, as well as giving that authentic Ibiza festival feels.

A rustic wedding venue that’s all geared-up for festival style events is a smart choice. Especially if you want to save headaches over licenses and outdoor areas. Ibiza is full of venues that have space and scope for tents and marquees and can accommodate live music, camping, and adequate site lighting.

5 Tent or Teepee? – Chill Out Area

Contemporary options are suitable in most weather conditions and, because you’re starting with – literally – a blank canvas. You can decorate the space however you want. Don’t forget to budget for extras like chair and table hire. A true Festival Style Wedding in Ibiza would not be complete without some kind of a tent structure. Marquees, Spiegeltents, Yurts, and Teepees are all great fun and perfect for an outdoor wedding!

Festival style seating is a must for your guests for them to chill out on and relax. We love the use of deckchairs, cushions scattered freely. Hay bales are also an inexpensive decor idea that is super practical too! Spruce them up with a little fabric or some blankets to make them a little more comfortable.

6 Vivacious Variety

The beauty of a festival is that there are lots of different activities to try.

Carry this idea into your wedding and your guests will love having entertainment options.
