Binged Bridgeton and got some inspiration for your wedding day? A historical themed wedding does require a lot of planning and research, but it is all well worth it! From your dress through to the flowers, the venue and even the vows, there are many exciting decisions to be made. We’ve got some suggestions on what couples need to consider for planning a wedding with a historical theme.
Planning Your Historical Themed Wedding
Upon deciding on a historical themed wedding, your next decision is to consider how authentic you want your wedding to be. This will determine how in-depth your research needs to be, as well as the sourcing of items for your wedding. It’s best to choose a specific time period or era, as this can help you narrow down your options. We’re tried to list as many of the key aspects of planning such a themed wedding as we can for you here:
- Research – before you head into the planning of your wedding, you need to do your research. Learn more about weddings in the period you have chosen, such as the Victorian, Medieval or Renaissance periods, or what could be termed the Jane Eyre period of mid-century Britain. Watch (or read) Bridgerton, or Jane Austen movies like Pride & Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensability, Mansfield Park – giving you further insight and inspiration to draw from.
- Save the Dates and Invitations – as soon as possible, get in touch with your wedding stationery provider. Most likely you’ll find they have a range of designs that they could tweak for your theme, but they also may need to create from scratch. Once again, the earlier you get in touch, the better.
