Bridgerton-Inspired Wedding at Château de Fluers

I can’t be the only one who’s obsessed with all things Bridgerton these days. If you’re dreaming of a Bridgerton-inspired wedding, look no further than the enchanting Château de Fluers in North Carolina. This stunning venue is practically made for a Regency-era celebration. So let’s talk about how to create a day inspired by the incredible stories of the ‘ton!

Find the perfect venue with regency era vibes!

Like I mentioned, Château de Fluers is a breathtaking estate perfectly suited for this style wedding day. But, it’s not the only one. Look for a venue that features grand architecture, sprawling gardens, and opulent interiors. You know the look! Imagine saying your vows in the enchanting gardens, surrounded by lush greenery and blooming flowers. And for the reception, ballroom spaces with gorgeous chandeliers and detailing will transport your guests straight into the Regency era.

Regency-Inspired Fashion

Channel your inner Daphne Bridgerton with empire waist gowns, delicate lace, and intricate embroidery. For the gents, it’s all about the tailcoats, cravats, and waistcoats. Think flowing dresses with soft pastel colors and elegant accessories like gloves and tiaras for that extra touch of elegance. For the gentlemen, consider adding a modern twist with stylish waistcoats and polished shoes to complete the look. This is YOUR day so feel free to mix those Regency styled pieces with modern touches so you’re comfortable. No need to go full costume unless that’s what you want to do.

The Vibe

Nothing sets the vibe of your event quite like music. Hire a string quartet to play classical versions of your favorite pop songs, just like in Bridgerton. The music should flow seamlessly from the ceremony to the reception, creating a beautiful and cohesive experience.

Don’t forget about the food, either! Food is a great way to enhance the vibe of your event. Think delicate finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, and an array of pastries. A traditional afternoon tea setup would be perfect for this theme, complete with elegant tea sets and tiered serving trays. For drinks, a champagne tower or signature cocktails inspired by the characters (a Simon Sour, anyone?) will do the trick.

Your Paper Goods

Set the stage with invitations that hint at the grandeur to come. Opt for elegant calligraphy, wax seals, and luxurious paper when choosing your invitation suite and paper goods. Consider adding a touch of gold foil or embossed details to make your invitations truly stand out. Don’t forget to carry this elegant style through to your day-of stationery—menus, place cards, and programs can all add to the overall aesthetic.

Capture Every Moment

Of course, you’ll want to capture every single magical moment. I’m all about those natural, un-posed shots that truly reflect your joy, laughter, and love. I love to capture those candid moments that truly showcase the emotion of your day, from stolen glances to joyous laughter.

Guest Experience

Keep your guests entertained with Regency-inspired activities. A string quartet for music, a game of croquet, or even a dance instructor to teach a few period-appropriate moves. Imagine your guests delighting in a leisurely game on the lawn or learning the steps to a traditional Regency dance. If you want to hand out favors, consider something inspired by the show. Personalized handkerchiefs or even custom tea blends make for charming and memorable favors. Consider packaging these favors in beautiful boxes or bags that match your wedding’s color scheme and theme.

Planning a Bridgerton-themed wedding is all about embracing the elegance, romance, and whimsy of the Regency era while making it your own. Remember, this is your day – so have fun with it! Incorporate elements that reflect your personality and style, and don’t be afraid to get creative.
