You don’t need Lady Whistledown to tell you that Bridgerton has inspired countless events, fashion trends, and budding romances already since it first aired. If you loved the books, the show, or just love the regency vibes then a Bridgerton wedding may be for you!

It is easy to fall into a trap of a themed wedding becoming too much about the theme and not enough about the happy couple, so we have compiled a list of 5 ways to have a classy Bridgerton wedding.

1 – Regency Inspired Attire

Bonnets are optional…

Your lover will truly burn for you in a gorgeous regency inspired gown or suit. For gowns, look for an empire waist with sheer or beaded details. Match Lady Daphne and choose a cathedral length veil for an extra touch of drama when you walk down the aisle. You could even wear some long gloves, the accessory of the moment which also happens to be totally era appropriate!

With regards to suits, choose an elegant three piece suit, and don’t forget the tails! Go all out with a top hat and pocket watch and you will give the stylish Duke a run for his money.

A fun nod to the styling of the Bridgerton characters would be to dress your bridesmaids in mismatched, colourful gowns. Co-ordinate each bridesmaid with your groomsmen with equally mismatched colourful waistcoats.

2 – Era Appropriate Wedding Venue

Some of the most beautiful wedding venues imaginable are from the regency era, so you will be spoiled for choice when hunting for your Bridgerton wedding venue. Think the city of Bath, stately homes, walled gardens, and elegant orangeries as your wedding backdrop. You could even choose a filming location from the show!

3 – A String Quartet

Waltz the night away at your Bridgerton wedding to all of your favourite modern hits re-imagined by a string quartet. This will nail the Bridgerton vibe as well as being a truly original choice of wedding band. Make sure you get the iconic cover of Wildest Dreams on your playlist for your first dance

4 – Afternoon Tea, Picnics, and Champagne

Nothing screams Bridgerton wedding like a picnic style wedding breakfast inspired by the fateful picnic where Daphne and the Duke announced their romance. This could be a really sweet, romantic alternative to cocktail hour and would result in some truly gorgeous wedding photos. Think beautiful blankets and stately hampers piled high with charcuterie, cheeses, fine breads, scones and patisserie. Oh and lashings of champagne of course.

Alternatively, nothing is more regency appropriate than a gorgeous afternoon tea. If you have opted for a regency venue this may be amongst their standard offerings, so definitely bear that in mind whilst planning!

5 – Era Appropriate Details

Think pops of regency blue in your gown and décor. Coupe style champagne glasses instead of flutes, and hand written scrolls with bespoke wax seals for your invitations and place settings. Make sure you include plenty of candles in your table design – long stemmed are best. You could even serve your meals on vintage crockery to add to the overall effect.
