Do you suddenly feel like all your friends have decided to get married at the same time? Welcome to wedding season! It’s chaos, and to top it all off, you’re one of the ‘lucky’ organisers of the hen dos! So, what’s the trick to hosting a fun and original do, without falling into the usual Chippendale clichés? Luckily, wedding season also seems to coincide with festival season – a match made in heaven! Not only do you get to wear those sexy summer sandals that have been sitting in your wardrobe but you also get to indulge in our Festival Fashion collection. So, here are 5 reasons to celebrate your BFF’s (or whoever) big day at a festival.

Coachella Inspiration (Paris Hilton): Keep your look pretty and feminine with a flowy white midi skirt, a matching crop top and the Josefa ballet flats in nude.

1. Everything is in one place

Forget having to decipher foreign tube maps and making sure you haven’t left anyone behind, while hopping from one pub to another. At a music festival, the food stall is just a short strut from the dance floor – everything is in one place. You don’t even need to stress about booking a hotel for all the girls!

Coachella Inspiration (Tara Reid): Embrace an edgier vibe with an oversized, dark grey t-shirt, ripped denim shorts and the Ainhoa trainers.

2. Anything goes fashion-wise

If you’re like us, then the best part about attending a music festival is planning your boho-inspired wardrobe! From crop tops to summer dresses to lace skirts to breezy playsuits, like the Linen Button Down Romper, you can really have fun experimenting with all types of styles. Opt for a total denim look, paired with festival-inspired jewellery, such as the True Trio earrings, and don’t forget a fringed bag (Stave is a particular favourite of the season) for the perfect festival companion!

3. You can sing like nobody’s watching

At a festival, you get a DJ all night long and they’ll be playing all of your favourite tracks. So, you don’t have to worry about counting the number of hours to reduce costs or getting frustrated because the club/bar is about to close – it’s all included! All that’s missing are the male dancers, but you might find a few boys willing to put on a show in the audience!

4. You don’t need an excuse to wear flat sandals at night

Give your feet a well-deserved break with a trendy pair of gladiators. Pair them with a cute dress, an off the shoulder top, like the Bell Sleeve Off Shoulder Top, or your favourite pair of skinny jeans. Rainy weather got you down? Swap your flat sandals for a funky pair of wellies!

5. You don’t need to splurge on extra entertainment

We already mentioned that there’s no need to hire a DJ, but you also don’t need to worry about catering, decorations or even activities. At a festival, it’s all fun and free! So, you can just dance the night away without worries.
