Best of British - jubilee inspiration

The Queen's jubilee this weekend has inspired me to pull together a Best of British mood board.  There are lots of ways you can use this as a wedding theme.  

Taking it literally, as I have below, you can use red, white and blue as a colour scheme for you wedding.  Navy blue is a very popular colour at the moment and is great as a colour for bridesmaid dresses or your groomsmen's suits or ties.  Red also makes a fabulous accent colour - why not use it for your wedding shoes if you'd like to make a statement or as a really striking bouquet.

If you want to be a bit more subtle with your theme you can simply use Best of British as inspiration.  Maybe use only British suppliers or look for things which are quintessentially British - such as a red double decker bus for your wedding transport, have a street party theme for your reception or go for strawberries and sparkling English wine for your food and drink. I'm sure there's lots of different options - but here's some examples to get you thinking.
