Are you as obsessed with the Victorian era as we are? If so, then you may want your big day to have some Victorian-themed elements in it. But how exactly can you insert some Victorian flair into your wedding day? And where can you find everything you need? Well, we are here to give you the scoop on the best ways to incorporate the beloved elegance of the 19th century into your 21st century wedding!
- Let’s start off with the cake: Although the recent trend has been to have cupcakes at wedding receptions in lieu of a tiered cake, it’s pretty common to at least have a small cake that can be used for the cake-cutting ceremony. If you have even a small cake for your wedding, you can add elaborate details to make it more Victorian. Gold trims, lacing, sugar art—the more ornate, the better. If you are more simplistic, having a cake topper that is Victorian or Victorian inspired will definitely add some unique flair.
- Classy invites: Fancy calligraphy and printing can create a Victorian inspired invite that is still relevant today. This may be one of the easiest ways to add a Victorian touch to your wedding. Lots of lace and intricate details will help make your invites not only one of a kind, but also historically accurate.
- The hair is a must: Victorian hairstyles are one of the easiest ways to incorporate Victorian trends into your wedding. Especially if you have long hair, your hair can easily be fashioned into a Victorian up-do. Your hair will look timeless, soft, and feminine. There are plenty of tutorials online that will teach you various different techniques for creating Victorian hair.
- The Victorian wedding dress: If you have Victorian hair, you have to have the Victorian wedding dress to match! Recollections can create you a Victorian wedding dress that is unique just to you. We also can provide the veil and other accessories to match. Your wedding wouldn’t be complete without a Victorian wedding dress, and with the beautiful ball gowns we have, how could you say no?
