With Wimbledon just around the corner, we thought there’s no better time than now to show all you tennis fans out there how to incorporate our favourite British summer sport into your wedding day.
We’ve collected some of our favourite images from Pinterest to create a mood board below to demonstrate how a few simple hints and touches can bring this unique theme to life, while still keeping the day feeling classic and chic.
DECOR: Inspiration for this theme comes from the iconic purple and green colours of the Wimbledon logo. Soften these tones with more gentle shades within floral arrangements with pops of rustic golds and yellows to create an elegant and fresh vibe. Choose coloured cutlery, crockery and glassware to add a little something extra and finish off the tables with plenty of lit candles.
FOOD & BEVERAGE: No day at Wimbledon is complete without a pitcher of refreshing Pimms with fruity slices alongside strawberries and cream. Incorporate these British picks during your drinks reception and when serving dessert. Pay particular attention to the presentation by adding tennis wristbands and cute signage dotted around. For the all-important cake go for something a little different like this delicious Pimm’s sponge slab with fresh garnishes.
STATIONERY: This can include anything from place cards and seating plans to the favours. For the seating plan why not design your own chalkboard tennis rackets that can be hung up to display the seating arrangements and name each table after past and current players. For a tasty treat, go for individual tennis ball looking lemon macaroons favours guaranteed to be a hit with all your guests.
ENTERTAINMENT: Why not put on your very own match with all your family and friends throughout the day. Whether you want to play singles or doubles, the choice is yours. Keep a note of the score and end the night with a trophy ceremony for the worthy winner.
