Royal Wedding

Hello Brides of Summer! We thought a royal wedding is just the thing to get the summer started. You know you want to feel like royalty on your wedding day but how hard is it to plan? With a little consideration a royal wedding is just the thing for you to be the princess for a day!

First on the royal wedding schedule is invitations. We never said it had to be based on European royalty – you can use your imagination and think Disney princess if you want! We love wedding invitations with emblems or family crests on them – even if they are made up. Some of the best invitations are ones that reflect you and your fiance. You should try to incorporate as much pomp and circumstance as you are comfortable with.

Next up for a royal wedding are the locations! Most royalty tie the knot at historic or grand places and you may not have the budget for this. However, you can plan accordingly such as perhaps a smaller, more selective guest list or scout out places around you that have that vintage, historical feel. You may opt for a venue that’s outside to get that big royal feeling but be sure to have a plan B in case of inclement weather. Also you could look into garden options to get married in. Gardens say flashy, romantic and very “your highness” feel to them.

And finally, for your royal wedding we recommend a spa treatment for you and your bridesmaids! We love for the bride to stay in a hotel either near the venue or in the venue with her team of girls. The hotels usually have nice relaxing spa treatments like massage, hot tubs, yoga or facials available. Get the royal treatment and stay relaxed before the big day! You don’t need to spend like a royal to get the same feeling.

Wedding Theme

A wedding theme is something little girls dream of before they know the term! Brides, you probably have your dream day picked out so let us help you by providing a few trending wedding themes of 2017.

The first two themes go hand in hand and can overlap. A garden theme and greenery theme compliment each other very nicely! Mother Nature is filled with gorgeous flowers for pops of color. Greenery can mean anything from tree branches to long wreaths on the tables. A garden wedding theme is romantic and lush. If you’re a nature girl you can go crazy with the decorations due to the vast amount of options available. Drape flowers on tables, twine vines in the chandeliers or use sprigs to accent your cake!

Another popular wedding theme we are seeing is vintage everything!

Vintage doesn’t have to mean old and dusty. It can be fresh and full of great memories. You can use heirlooms if they are important to you. Vintage can also mean just the color palette – soft pastels, shades of brown and blue. Antique tea sets are fabulous for bridal showers or for your guests at the reception. A vintage wedding theme is fun because you can incorporate things you pick up at a flea market and no one will even know it cost you $1.00! You can use old suitcases as make shift tables. Another cute idea is to use old keys as card holders!
