British Countryside Weddings – the best accessories and wedding stationery for a country wedding theme
There are plenty of wedding themes out there and finding the perfect one for your special day can seem a bit overwhelming at the start. You want to find something that is special for you and your partner, but you also want to create a day that all your guests will enjoy, too.
The British countryside is a great theme for a wedding and one that is becoming more and more popular as couples try and encompass their love for British traditions. There are many ways that you can add or use the British countryside wedding theme for your big day and there are some beautiful Folksy accessories that you can add into your day.
Choosing Flowers for a Country Wedding Theme
Flowers are a huge part of every wedding and if you want to make your British countryside wedding an even more beautiful day, then include a lot of flowers. Choose wildflowers or native British flowers to really tie the theme together, but don’t get too carried away. The flowers you choose must complement one another and your colour scheme. Aim for one or two focal colours to pull everything together.
If you’re on a budget and don’t want to spend too big a chunk of your budget on flowers but feel that spaces may look bare without, then concentrate them in areas where guests will see them, such as where your table plan is going to be or in the entrance to where you’re getting married.
Flowers have a huge role to play in a wedding and if you’re planning a British countryside theme, then the vibe of the day should be full of charm and be fresh and vibrant. You could even choose a statement detail, such as a flower wall or arch. This is a great location for some stunning wedding photographs. Don’t forget, you can add flowers to almost any part of your wedding. These hand-printed floral wedding invitations will give a hint of your theme to your guests before your big day.
There are other floral finishing touches you can add to your wedding day. A lot of couples who choose a countryside wedding theme add in other elements to make their day feel even more special and unique. A growing trend for couples is adding a “festival feel” to their evening receptions, where they choose a DJ and provide guests with glow sticks, glitter makeup and fresh floral headbands to really get into the spirit. Not only are they left with a floral momento, but some great memories.
Wedding Cakes for a Countryside Theme
Much like flowers, your wedding cake is a key part of your wedding day. A great focus for photographs and something that shows you and your partner’s tastes, a wedding cake should not be left until the last minute.
With the British Countryside wedding theme, there are lots of different styles of cakes to choose from. Whether you stick with a traditional Victoria sponge cake or go for something a little more different that truly reflects your tastes, such as an English cheese and cracker cake, be sure to choose something both of you enjoy. It is your cake after all!
There are plenty of traditional cake toppers that reflect who you are on your wedding day, but why not mix things up a little with something more unique? This adorable Badger Cake Topper is perfect for a British Countryside themed wedding, and is something personal that you can treasure forever.
Bridal Finishing Touches
You’ve chosen your dream dress, the bridesmaids have their accessories sorted and your future mother-in-law has her fascinator ready for the big day. Choosing the finishing touches for your own bridal outfit is something that is very personal and unique and is something a lot of brides spend a long time debating over.
A good tip for choosing the finishing touches is to take inspiration from your wedding theme. When it comes to a British countryside or an English country garden wedding theme, there are lots of ways to incorporate it into a beautiful bridal outfit, such as drawing inspiration from nature, wildlife and the landscape. Jewellery is the perfect way to add these finishing touches to your outfit, and these Silver Agapanthus Seed Dangle Earrings would be a beautiful addition to any outfit, especially your bridal outfit – not only are they dainty and delicate, but they also echo your countryside wedding theme.
For British countryside themed weddings, there are plenty of ideas for wedding favours that you can use. To really stick with your theme, try to use natural elements instead of mass-bought ones. Things like fresh fruit with name place leaves add a stunning touch to any table arrangement and are great if you’re on a budget. Natural materials such as wood are also good to use and can be carved with the names of your guests.
If you want something a little more unique to your wedding, then these Porcelain Lovebird Wedding Favours are beautifully simple and perfect for any wedding day. Another great idea for a British countryside themed wedding favour is small packets of seed for your guests to grow their own flowers or vegetables. Wildflower seeds can be bought relatively cheaply and you can personalise the way that you gift them, too.
