jane-austen-wedding.jpgWeddings and Jane Austen have always been inextricably linked, but there’s a definite trend for all-things-Austen going on right now, so if you’re getting married soon, why not play up to the theme? You might not want to go all-out with horse-drawn carriages to the reception (if you do, that can of course be arranged!) but if you like the style, there are plenty of ways you can introduce a regency style into your event.

You can do this in the smallest ways, with Regency accessories such as lace parasols and gloves, and I rather like this Austen-themed stationery like this ‘engaged woman’ card by Etsy seller letterarypress.

If you want to travel even further into Austen’s world, there are several hotels in ‘Jane Austen country’ (that’s ‘Hampshire’ at any other time in your life!) that cater specially for wedding parties.

If yout want to look the part, the current trend for empire line gowns will help you get a long way towards emulating our heroine. This lace dress by Pronovias captures the style beautifully.
