Next month for the third year in a row, I'm heading to Oregon's Beloved Festival. To celebrate the spirit of Beloved, it feels like the right time to bask in the beauty and bliss of music festival-inspired weddings. The truth is that not that many weddings actually happen AT music festivals (even among the Offbeat Bride community, it's pretty rare). What I see more often is couples getting engaged at music festivals who then build their weddings around the vibe of music festivals, or even create their own mini-festival wedding weekends. This in mind, I thought I'd plum our eight years of weddings to find some of my favorite inspiration for your music-festival flavored wedding. Let's put on our mud boots, pop in our squishy ear plugs, and dive in, shall we?

Because really, is there anything better than camping with your guests for a weekend?

Comments on Beloved festival weddings: inspiration for your music festival-flavored wedding

  1. This is pretty sweet! Makes me a little jealous we didn’t go through with our campground wedding plans!

  2. oh man! these photos are all so gorgeous! this is the perfect inspiration for my summer camp punk/folk music filled wedding next summer! and how had i never heard of beloved before? so cool!

  3. awwww! this makes me miss my rainbow music festival wedding (dubbed “the handfastival”) which was just last july! i wish i could share some photos with you on here… we had custom fabric wristbands made for each guest as they came into the meadow, 7 rainbow bridesmaids and 7 rainbow groomsmen (flowerfairies and rainbow monkeys), three days of mayhem, a cinema teepee, a shisha bell tent and a crafts yurt! as well as a main stage and lots of awesome local bands… aww man. i miss it.
