Feed your guests their own individual meat pies, cheese, breads, and wine. Have your bridesmaids and groomsmen wear dark colors, such as green or purple. The bride can have long flowing hair with small braids and a wreath of flowers. Give your guests a cd with the songs from your wedding.

A large, white gown complete with ruffles and lace is required for this theme. Wear your hair pinned up and curled at the ends along with a pearl necklace and earrings. Send your groom, groomsmen, bridesmaids, and yourself off to dance lessons to learn some of the dances that were performed. Many of them were group dances and would add a lovely performance to your reception. Decorate with vibrant flowers, such as those that are found in many English gardens. Serve your guests many delicate pastries and some afternoon tea.
