The English tea party wedding
This theme is truly one of my favourites. The décor is so beautiful and as the weather is warming up it is a great time of year for an English tea party wedding – whether it be set in the midst of a gorgeous garden or inside! This is the perfect opportunity to allow yourself and your guests to indulge on scrumptious cream cakes, adorable mini sandwiches and sip on tea and champagne, whilst enjoying your special day. This can create a more fun and relaxed event which still expresses timeless romance. Here are some examples of how you can use this theme to make the perfect wedding.
Above: Here are some stunning examples of how to work the English tea party at your wedding! The beautiful vintage tea cups which are miss-matched in patterns are so adorable and are available to hire from many different places! I also love the wedding cake shown which has a variety of different cakes and teacups with sweeties in them! You can play around with the sort of food and sweet bits you want to have at your wedding in order to make it unique.
Above: These perfect décor ideas illustrate how afternoon tea can become an overall theme. Bunting can be gorgeous when the right patterns and material is picked! In this case, I’m thinking gingham, polka dots and floral patterns to tie in to the theme. I also think the idea of using teacups as name place holders is so sweet! You can put little posies of flowers in the cups for your guests to keep and this will definitely ensure they leave with a smile on their face! The pastel hues are perfect for this theme and luckily they are in fashion this season too!
Above: I love the idea of the tea party to be held outside in a garden on a warm summer’s day. It really emphasises the theme and creates a magnificent backdrop for your special day. I also think it is a great idea how you can use the theme in all aspects of your wedding. The teabags pictured can be used as wedding favours. Their message reads ‘the perfect blend’ which clearly embodies the romance of your wedding. Alongside this the Polaroid pictures hanging on a line are so adorable! You could get your guests to take photographs and pin them up with pegs as the day progresses!
Overall this theme can be extremely enchanting. Think Alice in Wonderland meets Pride and Prejudice, a lovely tea party in a beautiful English setting! I feel this could be the perfect blend for a magical day.
