Get some Victorian wedding inspiration from the latest silver screen adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic Great Expectations.

Step back in time with a whimsical wedding gown that features layers upon layers of tulle and lashings of luxurious lace. Team that with a cathedral-length wedding veil, a la Miss Haversham.

Dress your groom in tails and pair that with a Victorian ruffle shirt and a top hat to add some authenticity.


Decorate your venue with pale pink and cream flowers and add a slight hint of gold to your decorations to bring out the sparkle of the big day.
