Bring on the Bridgerton
We are so inspired by the gorgeous opulence of Netflix’s Bridgerton. The clothes, the jewelry, the manors, the fabulous interiors, the flowers, the love stories….we just want it ALL!! And since the social season is upon us, dear brides, we decided to highlight the impeccable style of the show. And politely demonstrate that there are many ways to bring the elegance, and luxuriousness of that beautiful bygone era to a modern-day wedding.
Have no fear, dear brides, for if you too loved the show, there are lots of ways you can bring a touch of Bridgerton to your wedding that will impress even the likes of Lady Whistledown. So if you are looking to host the perfect modern-Regency-inspired day, please read on.
Of course, the internet is brimming with amazing inspiration for brides with an affinity for vintage-inspired vibes. For example, check out Elegant Wedding’s stunning Bridgerton Styled Shoot (they NAILED the swoon-worthy feels!):
In fact, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings’ blue and lilac themed take on a Bridgerton wedding is absolutely glorious:
Furthermore, another glowing example of an utterly romantic Bridgerton inspired wedding can be found at Green Wedding Shoes:
It’s All In the Details
The surest way to transport your guests to another time and place is through your details. Again, details make the difference in everything about your wedding from your venue, your floral elements, your invitations, your cake to your dress. For this style, you’ll definitely want to concentrate on the details. For instance, just incorporate things with vintage charm, lots of natural elements, and anything with a bit of whimsy. Think feminine details and period furnishings. And FLORAL everything!
Assuming you don’t have an English Country Manor or a historic cathedral available to host your wedding at, we’ve got some more affordable options for you. First, look for a local historic mansion, museum, or hotel for your venue. Also, check with botanical gardens and lovely outdoor spaces. You can give whatever space you choose loads of Bridgerton charm with your decor and florals.
The Florals & Decor
If you decide to splurge on anything for your day, we recommend getting extra with the floral elements. For an inspiring example, take in this stunning over-the-top winged archway and floral-lined aisleway featured on Green Wedding Shoes. To be sure, the arch is absolutely loaded with gorgeous greenery and flowers. And who wouldn’t want to promenade down this elegant flower-lined aisle to their one true love?
TIP: The trick to achieving a Bridgerton look is in layering the details. For example, Elegant Wedding paired extravagant florals with a lace tablecloth, a teapot, taper candles, cut glass, and lots of fruit. Here it creates an effortless symphony of romance and nature. Also, this look delivers a major dose of Bridgerton charm. And, dear brides, you can easily recreate this for your tables by collecting similar items from thrift shops, family members, and estate sales.
Another way to incorporate Bridgerton into your day is to set up a swanky backdrop like this circular one loaded with lovely lilac Wisteria. Most florists can duplicate something similarly fabulous or you can find options on Etsy or Amazon.[…Just taking a moment to appreciate ALL of the floral moments in this scene…]
Another floral moment we can’t take our eyes off of is this dreamy bride wearing a custom headpiece and holding a quintessentially Bridgerton bouquet.
Here we have more Bridgerton influenced bridal bouquets brimming with beauty, for you to peruse…
Signal a memorable wedding to all your guests by sending them on-theme invites. The prettiest Bridgerton-ish invites we found are from Sierra Dyer Co:
For your cake start with a traditional tiered confection and then layer on the details that work for you. Which one do you love best below? We choose the one with the wisteria arch, in the middle photo!!! But we’d definitely enjoy eating any of them!
And Your Dress is Flawless, My Dear
For your dress, try a style with an empire waist, or something with little cap sleeves. Or, go big with a ballgown like this platinum silk wedding dress from The Gilded Gown.
The accessories make this look swoon-worthy with the beaded topper, pearl earrings, gloves, and tiara.
We hope you can incorporate some of these romantic Bridgerton details into your wedding day. But always remember it doesn’t have to be perfect!
