How to Channel Bridgerton in Your Wedding Design
I resisted it for all of two weeks - as a guilty-pleasure Gossip Girl fan (and a total Blair), I knew I'd get sucked in immediately - but when we had our snow day this past weekend, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to pop a bottle of Prosecco and finally turn on Bridgerton.
Needless to say, I was hooked immediately - and not just because of the steamy Regency-era romance and the violin covers of Billie Eilish songs. I was totally drawn to the stunning floral arrangements, champagne towers, and warm candlelit ballrooms that made up the gorgeous party scenes of Daphne + the Duke of Hastings's social world. It's no wonder that Bridgerton has already become a huge trend in weddings!
Want to get a few ideas for incorporating this beautiful show into your big day? Check out some of our inspiration images below!
Unless you want to channel your inner Lady Featherington and go for bold canary yellows and lime greens, take a page from the Queen's book and go for a more subdued palette. Simple pastels like blush pinks, sage greens, and that classic Bridgerton Blue pair beautifully with warm creams, ivories, and golds for a stunning and versatile look - and you'll have plenty of options for flowers that fit into your color palette, too!
It goes without saying that empire-waist dresses and simple, lovely accessories are the order of the day. Try a gown with layers of delicate lace and a straighter, high-waisted fit (flattering AND easy to dance in - bonus!) for a look that Daphne would swoon over.
If you're wanting an invitation suite worthy of being hand-delivered to the Duke of Hastings himself, opt for lightly deckled edges, beautiful ribbon accents, and, of course, custom calligraphy. The vintage look is timeless, luxe, and perfect for setting the tone of the wedding. And don't forget about your day-of paperie, too, including place cards to keep your cute single friends seated far away from your, ahem, Lord Berbrookes. Wax seals are encouraged - dance cards, on the other hand, are optional.
From the arrangements stunning bouquets delivered by suitors to the lavender creeping up the walls at Daphne's family estate, flowers play a leading role in Bridgerton - and they should at your Bridgerton-inspired wedding, too! An al fresco fete would be ideal, but if you're saying "I do" indoors, bring the outside in with statement arrangements and installations that make your guests feel like they're dining and dancing in a garden.
Just like at the balls and parties featured in the show, every decorative detail plays an important part in the overall design and feel of the event. From flatlays to cake design to mood lighting, you need to focus on creating a cohesive whole that really channels your inspiration into every aspect of the day. Look for delicate vintage pieces, warm tones, and luxe touches to complete the look. No detail is too small to be addressed - and don't forget the champagne tower!
