Ah Britannia. Heading into July and still yet to see the sun. Being knocked out of the Euros by an embarrassing defeat to Iceland. Never quite getting anywhere with Eurovision. The list goes on...
It's quite easy at times to be overly harsh on our diddy little island - but here at the Bridal Emporium we think we are pretty special really! We therefore would like to present to you a little celebratory collaboration of British themed wedding inspiration - if this doesn't make you patriotic then we don't know what will!
So get cosy, sit down with your tea and scone, and have a little read!
The Cake. . .
How stunning is this strawberry and cream victoria sponge wedding cake? Spruce up your basic recipe with some floral garnish (why not go for edible flowers??) and some fresh british red berries!
Alternatively if you're a savoury kind of couple - go for a tiered pork pie!

The Catering . . .
Now having the traditional three course wedding meal can work out very expensive! Why not go for smaller appetisers and offer an afternoon tea or bitesize British classics such as fish and chips? A fun and memorable way to offer your food (and getting locally supplied food will be fresher and often cheaper!)

Grab yourself a Drink . . .
How incredibly cute are these drink ideas? Add a touch of vintage to your complimentary drinks and serve pimms in china tea cups and set yourself up a fresh lemonade tent for the kids!

British Decorations . . .
Continue the British theme into your little bits of decor, we love these welly boot planters! Why not collect all your wedding cards in this cute little post box
Wedding Transport . . .
Arrive in British style - an open top bus would be a great way to transport your guests from the ceremony to the reception!
Well we are certainly feeling very much in love with our beautiful island - how about you? Do share our post with your friends and spread the British love! <3
