Royal Wedding

Hello! So, unless you have been hiding under your duvet all week you can’t fail to have noticed that Prince Harry has proposed to the beautiful Meghan this month and wedding fever has already set in.  From where and when to the dress and who will attend, the speculation has begun already. There’s no denying it, a wedding of this importance influences the wedding world hugely, with William and Kate’s wedding still being echoed through 2018 weddings and beyond.  OK, so it was a firmly traditional wedding – lets face it, if you’re marrying the future King of England there are a lot of traditions you have to follow, so many of the elements of their wedding had been around for a long time already..  However, Kate did manage to incorporate some of her own ideas, which we thought we would look at today. First up – THAT dress.  I mean, come on, who else could take their design cue from Grace Kelly and make it their own? The long lace sleeves, the risky deep v neck, the high collar and full princess skirt.  It inspired a plethora of lace dresses and sleeves and kissed goodbye to the strapless dresses which had dominated the Bridal look for so long.  Kate also wore a second dress at night, giving us all the perfect reasoning to buy two dresses – or, at the very least to invest in a dress that can be adapted from day to night. The fashion didn’t stop there, with the explosion of veils being worn again by brides.  With everything from Cathedral to birdcage, Mantilla to diamante encrusted, they are everywhere.  We also saw lots of all white bridal parties, with cute flower girls and sexy Pippa style slinky dresses, we love how serene and elegant it can look. Lastly, one trend we adore is the ‘outdoor – indoor’ element the Royal couple had.  Who can forget those trees inside Westminster Abbey?  This has been a huge and very translatable theme for many couples.  Trees have popped up every where, from birch trees to blossom trees or simple branches on tables, this is a look we feel will still continue through 2018 and into 2019.  Being keen on a bit of gardening and nature we are massive fans of this look, especially when we decorate them with lights to give that little bit of wedding sparkle. So – it remains to be seen what Harry and Meghans wedding will bring, but we know we are excited to introduce all the good parts into your wedding.  And if you have a favourite wedding trend you would like to see, don’t forget to send them over to us using the form below.
