2013 Trend: English Romance

Hosting an English Romance wedding is an elegant way to display the sophistication and love of the happy couple--and several brides and bloggers this year have caught wind of this charming theme.

The photos in this post just may help you find inspiration on how you can bring the English Countryside to your wedding.

An outdoor tea party is a lovely idea for a bridal luncheon, or a photo shoot for the Bride & Groom to-be.

Create romantic invitations with calligraphy, pastel colors, and gold embellishments.

These gowns are so pretty in natural light.

Adding accessories like pearls and lace help carry the theme into both the Bride and her maids' looks.

The simple silhouettes of these bridesmaid dresses will casually flatter the femininity of your ladies in waiting.

We love bouquets with the just-picked-from-the-[English]-garden look, but a more traditional, structured look is created with peonies and pale roses--and both are theme-appropriate.

Full bouquets and single-stem roses provide a poshpolished look when resting in classic pieces such as candelabras, vintage dishes, and antique silver.

Loose petals, bunches of flowers, and green vines & fronds add grace to the aisle.

The wedding cake can carry many English-inspired designs, from simple to ornate!

Tea party-esque edibles such as biscuits and finger sandwiches are perfect appetizers for a cocktail hour.

Inspirations and influence can stem from many directions, whether real {royal weddings} or fictitious {Downton Abbey}, and it's so much fun to research.

We hope you enjoyed seeing all this English charm!
