Wedding ideas in red, white and blue

24 May 2022

For a royal-inspired wedding colour scheme, take a look at these bold and British ideas 

To celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne, we have rounded up a host of wedding ideas in patriotic red, white and blue. From quintessentially British catering including scones, trifle and Eton Mess; to blue suits, bridesmaids' dresses and red and white roses, there are a multitude of ideas centred on the colours of the Union Jack. 

Are you hosting a royal wedding theme? We'd love to hear from you. Share your wedding plans with us and see your story feature on or in one of our magazines.
