This week I have decided to change up my Top 5 posts, from now on it shall be known as ‘Wedding Theme Wednesday’. Each week I am going to pick a theme, and as well as my top 5 items to buy, I am also going to pick some of my favourite things from the inter-web to compliment the chosen theme. This weeks theme is Secret Garden Party!
Secret Garden Party
In my mind, a secret garden themed wedding is going to be a summer affair. Floral patterns and flowers are in abundance, and the elegance of the Victorian era plays a large part. Pops of colour, including pinks, yellows, blues and greens are nestled amongst the backdrop of muted cream tones. But don’t make the mistake of thinking this is going to be an old fashioned event! Oh no! Think traditional tea party meets fashionable festival!
My Top 5 Buys
3. Paper Plates – £2.99 for 12 at Mollie and Fred
Wow, these are the prettiest plates, they almost look like they are really made of china! These would really spruce up your table decoration if you were going for a tea party feel.
RHS Rosemoor in Great Torrington, Devon – This venue really caught my eye with its amazingly colourful and lavish flower beds. Within the gardens there are 8 different structures which you can get married in, all of which embrace the love of nature in different ways. What fantastic photographs you would come away with! The terraced marquee can seat up to 250 guests for your evening reception, and the windows allow a perfect view of the beautiful gardens. Guests can also spill out onto the winter garden lawn. Drinks and canapees can also be provided in many of the gardens within Rosemoor.
The Samurais of Swing – This Gypsy Jazz style busking band really evoke that fun festival feel, with just a hint of that old fashioned style.
This secret garden cake is perfection!
The DIY Tutorial
Moss covered initials – I love oversized letters at a wedding, and this tutorial would be great for a secret garden themed reception. I’d also be tempted to wind either real or fake flowers around each letter to add a little bit of colour!
What do you think about the new format? I hope you enjoyed this weeks secret garden party post! Have you got any suggestions of themes for upcoming weeks?
