Chances are, quite a few of you who are planning weddings were up at the crack of dawn this past weekend watching the royal wedding.
We have learned from history that royal weddings, even before social media, set trends in the wedding industry.
The tradition of a white wedding gown or wedding cake began with royal weddings. Modern day fashion designers followed the weddings gowns of Princess Dianna and Kate Middleton.
Meghan Markle’s simple, elegant three-quarter sleeve, satin gown with a bateau neckline is being reproduced at affordable price points as we speak.
Showcasing their personalities and highlighting causes they believed in was the focus of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s (Harry and Meghan) wedding.
They mixed religious and pop music into their wedding ceremony, they chose music that meant something to them and the officiant spoke about what they truly believed in.
The couple chose to break tradition with their choice of wedding cake; I am betting you will see more light, citrus flavored cakes in the very near future.
The first wedding reception was more of a stations style reception with passed hors d’oeuvres and “bowl food”, basically small plates that people could walk around with and spend time together.
They chose to go with a smaller wedding party, and while the flowers were beautiful, they kept them simple by incorporating local seasonal flowers and flowers that had a personal meaning for them. At the end of the day’s festivities they had the flowers donated at a local hospice.
The bottom line: you can incorporate nearly all of these traditions into your Weddings Inc. wedding.
