Wimbledon fever is at a high in London with the grand slam finals this weekend. Wimbledon began way back in 1877 and continues to be one of the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world.
Wimbledon has continued its long-standing traditions with players adhering to a strict rule of wearing all-white, the continuation of the Wimbledon colours, the support and visits from the Royal Family, spectators enjoying strawberries and cream, and the serving of Pimm’s and afternoon tea.
Add a little of the tennis tournament magic into your big day with these Wimbledon inspired wedding ideas!
Anyone for tennis?
The Wimbledon tournament is still played on the sport’s original surface of grass. Now, a game of lawn tennis might be a little bit unrealistic for a wedding, however lawn games can be a lovely (and slightly more gentle!) way to bring guests together and keep them entertained.
Wimbledon colour palette
The official Wimbledon colours are green and purple and what a fresh and fragrant colour combo they make for a wedding!
It’s always Pimm’s O’Clock at Wimbledon. This fruity concoction signifies summer and would make a refreshing signature cocktail at any party or wedding, whilst adding a hint of British summertime. Go one step further and add this tasty tipple to wedding cupcakes, typically English trifles or to create cooling popsicles!

Hopeful fans who camp overnight for the chance of bagging some same-day Wimbledon tickets are woken by stewards at 6am with egg sandwiches and tea. How very darling! Serve afternoon tea in fine china at a bridal shower or your wedding to create a terribly British affair.
Hope you have a lovely Wimbledon-inspired weekend!
