You knew it was coming: the Bridgerton wedding theme is here and it’s utterly fabulous. Couples are finding inspiration from the oh-so-romantic tale of a lady and her Duke. From blooming gardens to blooming bodices, all the drama and whimsy that is Bridgerton is a no-brainer for wedding design. So, how exactly has the release of Bridgerton played out for weddings so far? Here’s Kari, designer at Always Yours Events and visionary behind this perfect modern-Regency inspired day:
As wedding professionals, we’re seeing a whirlwind of Bridgerton-inspired requests. Draping greenery and wisteria, old-world stationery with whimsical details, Regency period-inspired accessories, and more colorful palettes. For this design, we focused on the florals, fashion, cakes, and ceremony design while incorporating modern takes on Bridgerton inspiration.
You are Cordially Invited
First of all, Daphne + the Duke would most definitely hire Gus and Ruby Letterpress to design their wedding stationery—is this not perfection?! Colorful paper with gold leafing and deckled edges, blind embossing, a custom crest, cheeky wording (a must), and a perfectly fitting dance card rounded out the invitation suite.
I, Simon, Take Thee, Daphne
It’s both too much and not enough!!
Our Daphne wore a stunning off-the-shoulder satin Casablanca Bridal gown from Bella Sera Bridal complete with earrings from Nicola Bathie, shoes from Bella Belle Shoes, and a tiara from Eden Luxe. By the way, if you’re looking to inject a little modern-Regency style into your day, these Bridgerton wedding dresses will do the trick.
You may well know that the ladies of Bridgerton are anything but boring. So these colorful, fluffy, perfectly over-the-top pastel gowns are ON POINT. The statement dresses by Lavender and Lace Gowns were completed with Nicola Bathie jewelry and Eden Luxe tiaras!
The Church of Flowers
For t unique ceremony design, Karla Cassidy Designs created a floral-lined aisle and a winged arch completely covered in flowers and greenery to emulate the shape of a chapel exterior.
The romance of it all!
Ladies in Pastel Perfection
And now over to the ladies. Here for the Bridgerton baby blue!
Enter the Noble Steed
The Duke’s white horse from Neer North made an appearance, naturally.
The bride carried a hand-selected array of blooms in shades of lavender, blush, peach, and touches of pale blue. Her bridal look by Makeup by Sarah Lord channeled Daphne’s coveted natural glow. Meanwhile, Styles by Callie gave her a polished chignon updo.
The groom (we’ll call him the Duke) wore a dapper velvet black tuxedo jacket and black bowtie with accessories by MK Benatti, channeling the Bridgerton attire completely.
A Stunning Floral Tablescape for the Reception
For the reception design, the team focused on creating a tablescape that would incorporate the feeling of the ever-present draping florals found throughout the show. From the exterior of the Bridgerton home to decor found throughout the season’s many extravagant events.
The linens were skipped entirely because Karla Cassidy Designs‘ floral runner was all they needed! The statement table and tabletop from Refined Rentals were completely covered in florals and greenery, taper candles, and gold-rimmed chargers. Gold flatware, cut crystal stemware, and velvet napkins were punctuated by a historically accurate Regency period-inspired menu by Gus and Ruby Letterpress.
Word has it that Daphne and Simon won’t be the last to find love. So, naturally, we’re holding out for ALL the Bridgerton weddings over here!
Sweets for the Duchess
Finally, custom cakes featuring floral designs by the talented Renee of Sweet Cheeks by Renee took center stage. Dotted with painted macarons by Love and Flour the sweets made a home atop vintage books on a green vanity.
And definitely check out the gorgeous film by Willow Tree Films below!
It’s just so LUSH and we cannot get enough. Didn’t we tell you? THE BEST Bridgerton wedding inspo out there. Congrats to the talented team who pulled it all together!
