A Very British Summer

Can you believe it's almost a year since the Royal Wedding? All that bunting and flag waving made being British pretty cool again and with the 2012 Olymipcs in London this smmer and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, there's no escaping from the inconic Uniion Jack.

With that in mind, here's another look at our Cool Britannia theme that would work perfectly for weddings this summer.

For this look, think street parties, village halls and lots of fun. You can even combine it with a vintage wartime vibe with 40s music and props. How about some cupcakes for your guests. You can buy these little flags from the All in One Wedding Shop

When it's time to toast the happy couple, you can't get much cuter than these mini champagne bottles from Harvey Nichols at £12.50 per bottle.

Of course bunting is essential and you can buy this great quality bunting below from All The Fun Of The Fair

You can't get much more British than strawberries and cream, well ice cream, and how sweet would it be to serve this to guests with their canapes for a summer Wedding. You can buy these bowls from Party Pieces (owned by our lovely future Queen's parents The Middletons).

And don't forget to include this iconic poster designed during the second world war to boost morale
