It is a diverse and vibrant city where chic and cool skyscrapers blend seamlessly with historic landmarks like Tower of London and Tower Bridge. With a rich culinary scene, vast venue choices, and fun photography options, London promises a funky yet magical wedding. Create everlasting memories at your London wedding with these ideas and tips.
How to Dress
England’s maritime climate means, it can rain anytime. However, that does not mean that it rains all the time in London. New York gets more rain every year than London. But to be on the safe side, pack some layers so you don’t freeze. And as far as your wedding dress is concerned, it depends whether you’re getting married indoors or outdoors. If outdoors, complement your stylish look with a faux shrug to keep yourself warm. It can get quite breezy at times, so make sure you wear stockings or white lace boots instead of peep toes or sandals.
What Style is Popular in London
London is a multicultural metropolis so you need not be concerned about what is in trend. So choose whatever suits your style and budget. However, London has a soft corner for all things vintage. Therefore, a retro wedding gown will truly win the heart. Precious antique wedding dress with lace detailing will leave everyone saying, “Wow.” And if you need inspiration, look up to the royal bride herself.
How to Make It Special
The big smoke, the centre of the British Empire, and what not, London has a lot of exciting options to add that wow factor to your wedding. Here are little details that can make your wedding extra special.
Double Decker Bus
To transport your guests from Church to the reception venue in London, make use of the iconic double decker bus. An antique British public transit, these buses are available as wedding transportation. This will surely add that British flavour to your wedding and also keep the fun quotient up. Decorated with ribbons and a wedding special destination blind, make sure to take a lot of photos in and around the vintage Routemaster bus. You can also serve champagne to your guests within the bus.
