With one month to go until the long-awaited Royal Wedding, we’re all wondering about the wedding planning taking place to organise such a momentous day! What will the dress look like? Who did the cake tasting? Will we ever hear the bride’s speech to the groom? The real question is, however, what fabulous ideas can we pinch?
If Meghan does opt for a bouquet bursting with mostly white blossoms, she’ll be following a time honoured tradition. Such a bouquet can create a classic, lavish look and is certainly one idea that you can incorporate into your own wedding. Talk to your florist early on and he/she will be able to advise on the best choice of seasonal flowers for your ceremony.
Unique cake flavour
Forget fruitcake or a standard vanilla sponge! Harry and Meghan have chosen to reflect the fresh flavours of spring with a lemon and elderflower wedding cake. Topped with buttercream and fresh flowers, it promises to be a delicious sweet treat for couple’s lucky guests. Want to give your wedding guests a unique taste sensation they won’t forget in a hurry? Read my blog packed with my top tips for choosing your perfect wedding cake.
Custom-made wedding bands
Of course, Harry and Meghan will sport custom-made wedding bands, made from Welsh gold of the Clogau St. David’s Mine no less. And, they won’t be the first royals to do so. Royals have been wearing rings made from this gold for decades. While you may not be in a position to request the same royal gold for you and your partner’s bands, there are benefits for choosing custom-made engagement and wedding rings. Learn more.
Charity donations instead of gifts
Most engaged couples in this day and age already live together and are probably pretty well set up when it comes to ‘stuff’ they need. Perhaps there is a charitable cause close to yours or your partner’s heart that you’d like to help. In the style of Harry and Meghan and William and Kate before them, why not provide donation cards as wedding favours and get people giving to charity instead of increasing your personal clutter!
Ensuring your wedding reflects YOU
By far the most important thing to remember about planning your wedding to remember is that your big day is about you and your significant other, and everything about your wedding should reflect that. It’s clear that Harry and Meghan are breaking many an ancient tradition to ensure their nuptials reflect their individual personalities and who they are as a couple. If there’s one thing to steal from the Royal Wedding, it’s that idea – don’t be afraid to break from tradition and make decisions that make you happy. Need some inspiration?
