There’s no more perfect location for a memorable wedding than the Lake District. With amazing locations and romantic villages and towns, it’s no wonder so many couples choose Broadoaks Country House in Windermere to tie the knot.
Wherever you’ve decided to hold your wedding in the Lake District, there are some brilliant things you can do to add that little bit extra to your day and make it even more memorable. Here are just a few ideas.
- Flower Crowns and Colour Matches
The look and feel of your wedding can sometimes seem a little haphazard but you can bring it all together by creating individual flower crowns for the bride and bridesmaids. Ensure everyone is colour-co-ordinated, from the ushers up to the bride and groom and you’ll make everything look extra amazing.
- Wedding Games
Especially if you have kids at your wedding party, making the most of outside amenities and the sunshine is going to be important.
Introducing a few game areas where people can have fun and let off steam is a great idea. You might, for instance, think about a small croquet lawn or organising sack races for the kids. Wedding games aren’t just for the children, however. You’ll find that plenty of adults will want to get involved too.
- Live Music
No wedding is truly memorable without some sort of music. While the traditional DJ is usually a strong option and is guaranteed to get everyone dancing, if you want to add a touch of class to the festivities, hiring a local jazz band can be inspiring. Broadoaks has a great list of local musicians who have worked with us for many years.
- Let there be Light
As it’s a summer wedding, and the grounds of Broadoaks are so fantastic, you and your guest will be spending a lot of time outside. Ensure that they can continue to enjoy the grounds into the evening by having lots of lanterns and fairy lights which will not only provide light later into the evening but also provide a warm and romantic atmosphere.
- Flowers, Flowers Everywhere
There is nothing that says summer more than mountains of flowers! Bring the outside in and ensure your reception is decorated with as many flowers as you can arrange for a truly spectacular summer vibe.
- Parasols and Sunglasses
Instead of traditional favours, gift your guest with colourful paper parasols to keep the sun off, or monogrammed sunglasses, perhaps in a range of summer colours or co-ordinated colours. These are not only practical favours for guests as they can use them to shield from the sun, but they will also look spectacular in your wedding photographs.
- Summer Themed Photo Booth
Avoid the traditional photo booth and create a summer scene for your guests to have fun in. Provide a summery backdrop and then cute summer items such as buckets and spades and inflatable beach balls so you guests can kick back and enjoy the summer theme while creating memories and having fun.
