Get the Look: A Downton Abbey English Garden Wedding

Last night’s premiere of Downton Abbey season 3 has everyone talking! We can’t stop drooling over Lady Mary’s wedding details: the chapel train, vintage veil and diamond tiara (valued at $200,000!)… and don’t even get us started on the gorgeous sleeved gown with rice pearls and Swarovski crystals. Get the look of this 1920s-inspired English garden wedding!

Beautiful draping vines and rich colored florals evoke the feel of an English wedding. Hanging chandeliers add to the ambience after dark.

Vintage Sleeved Gown

Channel your inner Lady Mary with this chic lace sheath by Monique Lhullier. The romantic shear peplum overskirt keeps it classy and elegant and the high collar neckline is reminiscent of the gown in the episode. Princess Kate Middleton wore a lace sleeved gown on her wedding day too!

Cathedral Veil

Cathedral-length wedding veils are elegant and traditional, especially with the addition of lace trim or beading. Lady Mary's veil was anchored with a 45-carat diamond tiara by Bentley & Skinner. Add a hairpiece at the crown to complete the princess look.

Calla Lily Bouquet

Lady Mary carried a bouquet of all white Calla lilies-- a simple, sleek choice.

Traditional Wedding Cake

Traditionally, fruitcake takes center stage at British weddings, but to keep things a bit more contemporary we love this tiered cake with lace accent ribbon topped with sugar flowers.

Royal Monogram Favors

These favors use a royal monogram which is especially popular in Great Britain. Couples can have their insignia appear on coasters or other favors guests can take home.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
