We had a fantastic response to our Showcase Event last month when we welcomed lots of lovely couples to view The Green which was looking fabulous, thanks to our wedding partners who styled the venue and sprinkled it with some winter magic.
Let us be your “something borrowed”. At The Green we have loads of extra ideas to add pizazz and elegance to your celebrations and our new range of beautiful accessories gives you even more to choose from.
So much easier than trawling the web and packing the car to the brim when we have everything here and ready to go. Less stress – more fun!
The Inside Track on Wedding Traditions
With Engagement season just around the corner, you might be wondering about the origin of a proposal on bended knee.
The tradition dates back to medieval times when knights would kneel before their lords to pledge allegiance and loyalty. So the natural progression was to demonstrate commitment and love on bended knee when proposing. In past times, the engagement process resembled a business transaction with both sides of the family getting involved and romance didn’t really come into the equation. Even relatively recently, your grandparents were unlikely to have had a grand proposal, more usual would have been a casual question in informal surroundings. Now of course, a lot of planning goes into the perfect proposal and whilst some still observe the tradition of proposal of one knee, like all things “wedding” these days, others prefer alternative options.
Whatever your choice, we hope the answer will be Yes!
And after the deal is sealed, The Green will be here to help you with the next steps!
Let it Snow!
