A hippie themed wedding can be a great wedding theme for a fun, relaxing time with friends and family. It’s also a great way to have an affordable wedding. After all, hippies have never been known for being extravagant when it comes to spending!
Here are some ideas to help you with your hippie themed wedding. First, you need a venue. What better place for a hippie wedding than the great outdoors? You can get married on the beach, in the forest, or in the mountains. A beach wedding can be truly rewarding and beautiful. Plus nothing says “hippie” more than standing barefoot at the alter!
For a wedding dress, try to find a vintage, all-natural, flowing white dress. Keep it simple to stick with the hippie theme. You can wear your hair down and maybe even put in some flowers. Encourage your guests to wear tie-dyed shirts and headbands to feel like they’re part of the festivities. Even bell bottoms would be fun!
You can have your reception in the great outdoors right where you got married. Play some classic hippie tunes by Janis Joplin, John Lennon, CCR and Jimi Hendrix. If you want to give out party favors to your guests, there are plenty of ways to do so while sticking with the hippie theme. beads, mood rings, and homemade jewelry are all nice ways to show your appreciation and help your guests remember the good time they had at your wedding.
You can even have a wedding cake decorated with classic hippie symbols. Or to keep it even cheaper, make cupcakes for you guests with smiley faces, peace signs and flowers decorated on them.
If you’re going to drive away from your hippie wedding while your guests throw bird seed at you, there’s only one way to do it right: in a Volkswagen Beetle!
