Before the Big Day Wedding Theme: Being British

While British weather might not be at the top of the list of things you love about the UK, that's no reason not to draw on British traditions to theme your wedding. Start by toasting each other's health with Pimms, and hire Morris Dancers to entertain your guests.  Try an old-fashioned high tea for your wedding breakfast (mmm, cream scones), or serve mini-cones of fish and chips as a starter.  Individual shepherd's pies make for a fabulous main course, or challenge your caterer to russle up roast beef with Yorshire puddings! Use Union Jack iconography to decorate your venue, or try some of the suggestions below.

  1. Love this! I am Canadian but my Mom and Dad were both born and raised in England. We are the only family that do not live in England. We are having many come. As a detail dedicated to my british roots I am having a british candy table. The sign reads 'the best sweets are british treats'.

  2. Love, love, love the cupcakes! Patriotism is truly visible in them. :D
