Wimbledon may be over for another year (well done Andy!) and the Great British summer may be full of more showers than sunshine… But it’s not all doom and gloom there are plenty of things about the British summertime that are well worth smiling about!
Here is our round-up of all things Wimbledon inspired to give you some serious wedding inspiration and to remind us all what we love about the British summer!
The outfits we see the likes of tennis superstars Serena Williams, Heather Watson and Angelique Kerber wear don’t immediately scream bridal inspo… however these stunning Wimbledon infused whites may just make you rethink what bridal style you will choose for your big day!
Short wedding dresses are modern, sleek and super chic so why opt for the tennis inspired short wedding dress perfect for a summer wedding like these tea wedding dresses from
The National Wedding Show supplier Berketex Bride on Stand F1 in Manchester Central.
Another bridal style that is sure to be a winner every time are separates, just like the style we see on the court more and more brides are choosing to a two piece wedding outfit instead of the traditional gown. These beautiful two pieces bridal outfits from Maggie Sottero are stunning alternatives to a wedding dress! You can see more designs from Maggie Sottero from supplier The Dressing Rooms on Stand F35 at the Autumn show.
Wimbledon wouldn’t quite be the same without a fruit filled glass (or two) of Pimms which we think makes the perfect addition to your wedding reception. Whether you are opting for an outdoor, barn or manor house venue for your wedding your guests will sure to love a refreshing glass of Pimms.
Or if you would like to go that one step further why not hire a cocktail or prosecco bar to celebrate your special day in true British style? Just like the bars they have on offer to those lucky Wimbledon ticket holders! Why not choose other British classics like G & T or offer something a bit more exotic, whatever cocktails you choose to have on the scoreboard your guests will sure to be impressed!
Strawberries and cream are a truly British dessert that every summer we can’t help but love to enjoy! Whether it’s having a picnic on Murray Mount or enjoying a bowl in the garden, strawberries and cream are the perfect summertime treat. So why not offer your wedding guests a bowl of this delicious pairing or even better offer mini strawberries and cream cakes, an Eton mess parfait or go all out and choose a wedding cake like this stunning chocolate wedding cake from Sophie Cabot Cakes or this delicious Eton mess dessert from Pastry Girls both of these cake designer will be at TNWS in Olympia this Autumn!
Another British activity that is truly hard to beat is an afternoon tea whether it is a champagne tea in the sunshine or warming up with a cup of tea in winter; it’s hard not to enjoy cream tea and finger sandwiches! However if miniature sandwiches and scones are not your cup of tea (pun intended) for your special day then why not choose an afternoon tea for your hen party an activity that all the girls will enjoy!
We hope our Wimbledon themed line up has given you some inspiration for your wedding day whether it’s being bold and opting for that chic tea dress or two piece separates or offering your guests a fruity glass of Pimms, we are sure your wedding day will an all-round hit whatever the weather!
