Home :: Planning :: Theme Weddings :: Victorian Theme

Victorian Wedding Themes are based on the era of Queen Victoria. Below are some ideas on how to create a Mardi Gras Themed Wedding:

- White wedding dress with battenburg lace.
- A high-necked wedding gown with lots of lace.
- A flower wreath with a long, flowing veil attached to the back.
- A hat with a veil.
- White gloves for both the bride and bridesmaids.
- Men wear a formal cutaway tux with an ascot and a top hat.
- Button-up shoes or boots.

Here are some suggestions on wedding colors:
- White
- Ivory
- Champagne
- Pale pink or blue
- Gold
- Rose

- Lace sachets
- Jordan almonds
- Cameo-shaped chocolates
- Small, lace fans
- Chocolate truffles
- Ornate silver frames
- Potpourri
- Buy inexpensive decorative teacups (check at thrift stores and garage sales!) and fill with small candies, then wrap entire thing in tulle.

- Bridesmaids carrying tussie mussies with a small bouquet of flowers in them.
- Use lace fans instead of bouquets.
- All-white roses.
- Queen Victoria wore orange blossoms in her hair for her wedding, so these flowers would be great for a victorian theme.
- Pansies.

- Historical Site
- Mansion
- English or Rose Garden

- Popular music during the Victorian Era include Handel, Mozart and Pachelbel.
- Use a harp during the ceremony.
- A string quartet during the ceremony or reception during dinner.

- Use lots of lace.
- Tie pretty bows in the back of all the chairs.
- Use plenty of flowers.
- Candles.

- Victorian wedding cake were often fruit cakes with rolled fondant icing or white layers.
- Many Victorian receptions were afternoon tea parties with finger food, grand balls or garden parties.
- Use silver cake charms for your cake - they originated during this era.
- Invitations were formal; white or ivory cardstock. Include some dried rose petals in the envelope for a Victorian touch.
- Have your photographer take several black and white, or sephia, wedding pictures.
- Scatter rose petals on the tables.
