Elegance is often synonymous with traditional wedding design featuring white intertwined with decorative elements such as filigree, lace, and subtle design styles. When it comes to “English Elegance,” this style is said to be inspired by English roses. With many varieties in season year-round and available in an assortment of delicate shades, roses are a fragrant and ideal choice for an “English Elegance” wedding theme.

An English Elegance wedding is preferably held in an outdoor venue, be it a garden or estate grounds however, indoors is fine too. The focal flora can be complemented with accents such as the use of sheer drapery, accompanied by intricate decorative pieces seen with the choice of chairs, table number frames, and the wedding cake design.
Tiffany chairs are ideal choices when coupled with sheer drapery and a rose accessory can be a more elegant alternative to that of a seat cover or bow/sash in satin.
