The Edwardian era is synonymous with prosperity, conspicuous consumption and leisured elegance. Weddings at the beginning of the twentieth century featured many of the familiar traditions that are still upheld today. The cake, white dress, bridesmaids and bouquets were all commonplace and featured in the periodicals of the day. To capture this look we love lace details paired with a romantic peach, cream and green palette. This will definitely have your guests thinking that they are extras in Downton Abbey.
A candlelit reception with multiple courses of fine food and wine is as Edwardian as you can get. Plus, you don’t need to be the Lady of a stately home to recreate it. Floral centerpieces should be tall and abundant, with a blend of soft pastels to add some color to a darker room. Include some antique touches in your decor with cut glass vases and polished silver.
