If you are lucky enough to be able to have a horse at your wedding, why not decorate the bridle with fresh flowers to match your bouquet or provide them with a matching ring of flowers around their head or neck?

An equestrian top hat decorated with lace and tiny sequins is the perfect finishing touch and a great alternative to a tiara or flowers. Why not complete the look with a birdcage veil and satin laced riding boots?

These golden horseshoes make great keepsakes for your special day and can double up as place settings- why not hang them in table groups as an alternative table plan.

Couples sometimes struggle with table names, you could choose race courses, breeds of horses or simply opt for numbers- these are decorated with prints of horses and could be replicated for your invitations to carry the theme throughout.

A great alternative to a button hole, these paper and ribbon rosettes can be personalised to match your colours and have wording that is special to you both, perhaps the words to your first dance?

We are loving these fun vintage style cufflinks decorated with tiny horse heads. A subtle way of introducing the theme to the groom, they would also make great gifts for the best man or for the male guests in the party.

We can’t have a blog without cupcakes and this one is no exception- personalised with the date of your wedding and your names, these really do add a simple elegance.

Horseshoes have always been considered to be lucky so add a tiny diamante brooch to the stem of your bouquet, that way you can hold on to your luck for the whole day and into the future.

Vintage themes can also include rustic horseshoes- this is simply standing against a cute jar of soft blooms. The embroidered and crocheted cloths, give it a light, pretty feel. Perfect for a spring or summers day.
