I am sure like myself, most of you have watched and l0ved Bridgerton (Netflix's most-watched show) by now. The popularity of the show has influenced a fashion movement known as regencycore. Think flowing drapery, classic chandeliers, a colour combination of blues and pinks and citrus hues, regal patterns and fabrics, antique mirrors, and damask patterns. I've created this guide to styling a wedding Lady Whistledown herself would approve of.
Colour Palette - Pastel Perfection
Lilac Wisteria - the flower that adorns the facade of Bridgerton home.
Pale blue Hydrangeas as featured at the Hastings end of season party.
Old Roses by David Austen for that classic English look.
Pale pink Ranunculus - ruffles and ruffles and ruffles.
Galilee Anemone - pastel perfection.
This romantic gown by Markarian featuring an empire waist and cap sleeves screams Daphne.
This colourful offering also by Markarian is the diamond of the season.
This dramatic babe by Danielle Frankel boasts regency design elements and is sure to make you look and feel like a duchess.
Complete your dramatic, feminine look with a regency inspired cape like this one from Sleeper.
Elbow-length Gloves - these from Dents are available in loads of colours to suit any dress choice.
A shorter lace style from Etsy is also very Daphne!
Keep it simple with this piece from Etsy. Pretty and romantic.
You could splurge on an actual regency antique for your special day like these stunning drop earrings from The Antique Jewellery Company.
By Alice and Blair, this pearl headband will perfectly complement your updo.
The Chinara by Stuart Weitzman is Whistledown Approved.
This Bee brooch from the Royal Collection nods to both royalty and Mr. Bridgerton, who in the books was struck down by a bee sting.
Give this gorgeous Tiara from Debenhams a try to adorn a bun style hair do.
Or this tiara from Etsy would also be society worthy.
Top hat by Cotswold Country Hats
Don't forget to include your maids with these stunning floral print options from Matches Fashion that we could definitely see in the Modiste.
This classic deep blue velvet option from Twisted Tailor will make sure your man looks every bit as sexy as the duke.
Or really nail the pastel trend with this pale blue suit also from Twisted Tailor.
Treat your wedding party to this cosy hoodie from Red Bubble to wear for getting ready and day 2.
We are lucky enough in the North East to have many beautiful wedding venues. Think white fronts, black doors, columns, and bow windows.
Seaham Hall was built in 1790 and the hall and grounds would create a stunning backdrop for the party of the season. Lord Byron also married here in 1815 - doesn't get much more romantic or regency than that!
Monograms. Silhouettes. Flowing Drapery. Antique Silver. Candle Sticks & Candle Light. Fancy Plates. Glassware. Lots of Flowers. Pearls. Feathers. Vertical Stripes.
You will be able to find lots of items and accessories to use in your decor and tablescapes in vintage shops and on websites like Etsy.
Strings or the pianoforte can be a beautiful addition to your day if you wanted to have live music. Consider looking for a local band and asking them to play modern songs for that Bridgerton spin. You could also play the Bridgerton soundtrack which features on Spotify.
I hope this guide has been helpful if you're planning your own wedding to your own duke this season. Please get in touch for a quote for your flowers and styling.
Yours truly, Lady Whistledown
