Victorian theme weddings are very popular. The decorations lend to the Victorian feel. Candles are quite popular during a Victorian theme wedding.

Victorian weddings are based on Queen Victoria's era. The bride in a Victorian theme wedding is covered in lace, off white lace and intricate veil. The bride can also wear a high neck wedding gown. She and the bridesmaids will wear long white gloves at a Victorian wedding. For a veil she will have a hat with a veil attached or a wreath of flowers with a veil attached. She will look old fashioned and romantic in her attire, carrying with her a bouquet of roses. She most likely will have a flower girl that will drop rose petals in front of her during the ceremony. If she does not have a flower girl, lay the rose petals on the carpet before the ceremony.
In a Victorian wedding there are certain colors that are more prominent. Ivory, white, pale pink or blue, gold, rose and champagne. These colors remain dominant in the decorations in the church and at the reception. For decorating ideas, you will want to use plenty of lace, ribbons, bows, flowers and candles at the reception hall.
At a Victorian theme wedding you may wish to have any one of these as favors, small lace fans, chocolate truffles, potpourri, silver frames, cameo-shaped chocolates and lace sachets just to name a few. There are many other things that you can do to create the Victorian theme wedding feel. Just use your imagination and try experimenting with rose petals everywhere.
Remember the feel of a Victorian wedding is soft and romantic. Subdued colors and a relaxing and inviting atmosphere. It s nostalgic and demure. Victorian weddings are beautiful and resemble postcards from the olden days. Keep that in mind when planning yours.
The groom in a Victorian theme wedding wears a top hat to go with his formal tux. He looks regal and handsome. He is like the prince that comes to get the princess in a Victorian wedding setting. It is a good idea that the grooms take some dancing lessons so he can sweep his bride off her feet. He should dance her around the reception and have her look like a princess. Together the bride and groom make you feel as if you have stepped back in time to when Queen Victoria lived. What a fantastic, romantic feeling and a joyous celebration for all that attend.
