Are you about to begin your journey down the aisle? If there’s one thing we know, it’s that your very first step starts with sifting through wedding ideas on Pintrest and nailing down the perfect theme. But if wedding inspiration has so far alluded you, then have no fear! The team at NKB have three perfect wedding ideas to help you on your way to ‘I do’. 

Vintage Wedding Idea

Wedding Idea 1: Vintage

A timeless romance like yours deserves a timeless setting, and nothing could be more elegant than a vintage wedding celebration with your family and friends.

The Clothes

From THE dress to your bridesmaid dresses, channel the elegance of Grace Kelly with a vintage wedding theme that will blow your guests away. Think delicate hand-made lace, sugary sweet pastel tones and elegant corsages. Retro has never looked this good!

The Menu

Speaking of retro, there’s never been a better excuse to take a step back in time and get in touch with the comforts of home-style cooking in an elegant setting. Make your guests feel right at home with decadent comfort food like handcrafted meatloaf with parish mash and veal jus or wild mushroom tagliatelle with parmesan and truffle.

The Styling

You’ve got the dress and the menu now all you have left to handle is the decorations. Make your wedding reception theme go the distance by adding a touch of shabby chic to the mix. Whether its flowers arranged in upcycled jars and vases, delicate antique lace table cloths or a selection of vintage crockery, when it comes to finding your wedding inspiration, what’s old is new again.

Wedding Idea 2: Cape Cod

Want a wedding idea with a little more sizzle? Take a trip to the cool crisp shores of Cape Cod with a beach inspired wedding theme.

The Clothes

Who said you can’t recreate the crisp, clean allure of the beachside wedding right in the heart of the river city? Keep it simple and elegant with a classic A-line dress in chiffon or let you accessories do the talking with a minimalist, floaty maxi dress with native flowers in your hair. Skip the veil and train, if it would drag in the sand at the beach then it will drag on the dancefloor in the city.

The Menu

Get a taste for Cape Cod cuisine at your wedding reception with a menu brimming with the season’s best locally sourced seafood. Think freshly shucked oysters, decadent lobsters and and potted garlic prawns served sizzling at the table. Wash it down with summer inspired cocktails like Pimm’s or hand crafted hard iced-teas and you’ve got the recipe for the perfect wedding feast.

The Styling

When it comes to styling your wedding venue, we believe that less is more. Delicately decorate crisp white linen tablecloths with nautical accents like rope or blue and white striped table runners and silver cutlery. For added impact try to include a subtle sailing design to your menus and invitations.

Wedding Idea 3: The Fairytale Wedding

You don’t care what anyone else has to say, your relationship is proof that fairy tales really do come true and you want a fairytale wedding theme to match. So if you really want to make your happily ever after’s come true, the fairy tale wedding is right up your alley.

 The Clothes

Really want to make an impact on your guests? Then your journey to wedding inspiration begins with finding the perfect dress. Unleash your inner princess with an opulent ball gown styled dress in tulle or a dramatic trailing veil. And for your prince charming? There’s nothing quite so dashing as a man in a tuxedo.

The Menu

A decadent wedding theme calls for a decadent menu to match, so ditch the canapes and go straight main event with an elegant sit down feast. Think roasted asparagus with slow cooked egg, parmesan custard, serrano ham and gremolata crumb, slow roasted lamb shoulder with Jerusalem artichokes, raisins and sage and top with endless bottles of champagne.

The Styling

Finally, turn your wedding venue into your very own fairy tale fantasy with thoughtful and romantic decorations. From an enchanted garden festooned with lush flowers, to romantic and whimsical lighting schemes courtesy of cast iron lanterns and fairy lights, there’s no limit to your wedding inspiration when you’ve got our friendly team as your fairy godmothers.
