3 Royal Wedding Reception Party Ideas

If you have royal fever thanks to the upcoming wedding of Harry and Meghan, then perhaps you have considered giving your own special day a more royal theme. As one of the grandest Warwickshire wedding venues, we have three top tips for making your wedding reception more royal.


Drapes and lavish fabric can help create a more luxe atmosphere. Luckily at Wroxall Abbey, our property is unique, romantic and located in idyllic surroundings. We can fully customise our space to suit your vision – some might even say that our manor has a regal air about it all by itself.

Able to complement any theme or colour scheme, we suggest soft, muted hues for your special day as the royal family always opt for elegance in an understated way. Less is more when it comes to your décor. Meghan will be having peonies as part of her celebration space, so you could incorporate some into your own floral displays, or go for a similar flower that has special meaning for you. 


Caviar, oysters, salmon – lavish ingredients are a must for a royal themed reception. Something as simple as cucumber sandwiches and mini high teas can also do the trick. Dark chocolate and ginger brownies, asparagus wraps with lemon mayonnaise, Stilton and chutney rarebit bites – the choice is endless when it comes to your canapés. The food you serve at your reception can evoke feelings of royalty, that will in turn make your guests think of the Royal Wedding. Consider monogramming your napkins for an even more decadent touch.


It goes without saying that Champagne will feature heavily at the royal wedding –  we even have it on good authority that the royal family are partial to a bottle or two of Bollinger. To help elevate your reception, serve a mixture of Champagne and gin cocktails, and even good old classics like gin and tonic. Not only is the bubbly a status symbol, you’re also offering alongside it one of the most popular British drinks. Should you not like Champagne, you can also substitute your fizz for prosecco and offer fruit-filled jugs of Pimms.
