Add an English twist to your big day
Planning on marrying in Scotland but want to add an English twist to your big day? The team here at Gretna Green have come up with a few ideas to help you plan a St George’s themed wedding.
St George’s Day celebrates the life of St George (patron saint of England) who by all accounts was quite the romantic. According to legend, St George bravely fought and slayed a dragon to save a princess.
If you’re a groom, don’t worry, we don’t suggest tackling a mythical beast to impress your bride to be. We suggest choosing a special gift and luckily, here at Gretna Green, we have loads to choose from. As well as our range of Scottish products, we stock a great range of ‘made in England’ gifts at our Gretna Green Visitor Centre from clothing and accessories to beautifully handcrafted jewellery. Keeping with the English twist, treat your new bride to a chic Grafea bag which are lovingly created in Manchester.
For a wedding fit for a knight and his princess, the theme has to be planned to perfection. Think about love and weddings. What colours spring to mind? For us, it has to be red and white. Red is the colour of passion and white symbolises purity and of course wonderful wedding dresses. And these colours aren’t just for brides and grooms wanting to add an English twist to their wedding, but also for those who want to inject colour and make a bold statement on their big day.
Now for the flowers, and the most popular wedding flower of all time – the rose. It’s no surprise that this flower has become a firm favourite amongst brides with it being a symbol of love, as well as the national flower of England. Red roses are a classic bridal accessory and if you really want to run with the rose theme our Rose Suite at Smiths Hotel is the perfect choice, complete with a four poster bed, this luxurious room is fit for a princess.
What to drink on your St Georges’ themed wedding day? It has to be Miami Vice! Don’t be fooled with the tropical sounding name, this cocktail is perfect for your red and white wedding theme and is a fruity combination of Strawberry Daiquiri and Pina Colada. Call Smiths Hotel on 01461 337007 to pre-order your cocktails and toast St George’s Day in style on your wedding day.
If you’re heading to a wedding and want to treat the bride and groom to a special ‘made in England’ wedding gift we have a great range to choose from at our Gretna Green Visitor Centre. Alongside our impressive collection of Scottish gifts, we recommend our Dartington Crystal glasses. We particularly love the stunning prosecco glasses in this range, which can be engraved with a personal message for the bride and groom and are timeless keepsakes.
At Gretna Green our Wedding Team are here to help you personalise your special day, no matter what theme you chose! If you would like to discuss your wedding ideas with a friendly member of our Wedding Team, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01461 336001.

A NICE DAY FOR A WHITE WEDDING FAYRE
On a snowy Sunday morning in March, the team at Gretna Green were busy preparing for the much anticipated Wedding Fayre Extravaganza.
With finishing touches in place, the doors opened to a crowd of very excited (but very cold!) future brides and grooms, all coming to seek out inspiration for their big day. And inspiration was certainly what they got!
Smiths, Gretna Hall and Greens at Gretna were packed full of exhibitors displaying their finest products and services.
All of our soon-to-be-married couples were given the opportunity to browse a series of carefully curated stalls set up by local suppliers, all hand picked by our expert Wedding Team. Couples could build their dream wedding day, with tours of our three hotel venues giving our guests an insight into the luxurious bridal suites available. Our lovely Wedding Team were on hand to answer any questions and chat through all of the options available, taking the stress out of wedding planning.
Visitors were amazed by the wedding décor ideas on show, including beautiful floral decorations from Gretna Flower Basket – the perfect way to put your stamp on the wedding venue.
Next, the important bit – catering! A delicious array of food was available to sample from canapés, prepared by our very own chefs and wedding cakes by Jenny’s Cakes, to delicious sweet treats supplied by Glen Urr Ice Cream and So Sweet Trees. Our sugar levels were kept up during the day so a huge thank you for the free samples – yum!
Soon to be brides were drawn to the display of elegant wedding gowns courtesy of Carol’s Bridal Boutique and the glistening jewellery by Nicolson & Coulthard. Our in-house salon, Spoilt at Smith’s, demonstrated how to create flawless bridal makeup which gave our brides lots of inspiring ideas.
For the grooms, Weddings Silver Lady Wedding Cars and Tartan Carriages showcased a range of lavish transport options to get the couple to their venue.
Visitors enjoyed dancing on a pixel LED dancefloor from Northern Star Events whilst listening to popular hits from Stephen Chatterton’s Jukebox.
The day was enjoyed by all and was a huge success for Gretna Green.
