Wedding Trend – Brittania!!

27 February 2010

I love this theme, especially for those of us who have a strong connection to the UK, wanting to incorporate that into a wedding back home.  Here you’ll find ideas to include a little slice of Britannia to your day.

Placecards – Write guest names on blue card using white ink and slip under the wheels of a mini London bus or black cab.

Table Name Cards – Display cards featuring the names of famous Lond landmaks on stands in teapots filled with hydrangeas.

Tablecentre – Top a red rose ball with a crown decorated with spray paint or gold leaf.

Cake Table – Make a statement with your cake table by overlaying a plain tablecloth with a Union Jack flag.

Bouquet – Add a decorative touch to your bouquet with ribbons and a vintage button.

Napkin Rings – Tie your napkins with royal blue ribbon and finish with bows, held in place with decorative coronet brooches.

Unique Touch – Gather photographs and stories about you and your groom and send them to RSVP London, which will compile the information into cute miniature newspapers. Have a copy printed for each guest and place a bundle of mini newspapers tied up with string on each table.

Cute Canapes – Choose mini versions of traditional British dishes, such as beef and Yorkshire pudding with horseraddish sauce. For decoration add cocktail sticks tied with ribbon.

Decor – Use Union Jack string bunting to decorate indoors and out.

Cake – Serve mini Britannia themed cakes topped with mini Big Bens and London Eyes or mini Union Jack flags.

Shadan is the Aussie girl who married a Kiwi boy, and discovered first hand the lack of help available for UK-based Antipodeans returning "home" to marry.

After more than a decade of customer focused roles, including personal assistant and events coordination, Shadan longed for a new challenge, doing something she was truly passionate about.
