Blooms and Polka Dots: Cath Kidston Wedding Theme

Cath Kidston is a British brand known distinctly for its chic vintage style rich in nostalgic floral patterns and prints, polka dots, and pretty pastel colors. A Cath Kidston wedding actually reminds me of a cheerful tea party decorated with colorful fabric buntings, red and pink roses, multi-colored ribbons and vintage tea sets. If you want to add some oomph to your usual shabby chic theme, go steal a Cath Kidston Inspired Wedding and have a rich heritage of English vintage chic design that is contemporary at the same time, so you can mix and match antique and whimsy styles together.
