Everyone loves the British. Their accents are beautiful, their humor is dry and hilarious, and their strength is to be admired with their national slogan “Keep Calm and Carry On.” Whether you want to show off the Union Jack or have a beautiful English wedding in a garden, there are many ways you can incorporate the Brits into your wedding.
To get the English feel to your wedding, you need to incorporate the patriotic colors red, white, and blue. While you have the white covered, make sure to add elements of blue and red. Choose red flowers and blue table clothes. Add the bold Union Jack stripe pattern in subtle elements, such as having a red table runner with a white border on top of that blue table cloth.
You don’t need to get Kate Middleton’s dress to bring England to your wedding. Instead, you can choose a British designer for your dress. If you can’t afford to pay for a designer, browse their collection and find a similar design at a cheaper outlet.
The venue is also an important part of creating an English feel for your wedding. The best option is to find a beautiful outdoor garden setting for your ceremony, reception, or both! Make sure the garden has flowers and shrubbery that can also be found in an beautiful English garden. Think of Tudor roses and lily of the valley.
You could also choose a beautiful castle-like venue to get that royal feel. If you go for a royal aspect, you need to add purple to your wedding. Purple has long been associated with royalty and that is the best way to feel like a queen on your wedding day.
There are many other things you can do to keep an English frame of mind in your wedding. Choose cute decor that has British elements. Only play music from British bands and artists. Make sure you have English flowers in your bouquet, such as lily of the valley.
