A Royal Wedding in the Works

Lately you just cannot escape the news – William and Kate are finally getting married! And who doesn’t look forward to the hoopla surrounding a royal wedding. Everything got started on the right note – William gave her Princess Diana’s ring *sigh* soo perfect. There’s already speculation over the venue, date and dress designer. What would you pick out for a royal wedding?

You may not have to get approval on your wedding date from the royal family, but that doesn’t mean you can’t steal a little inspiration from past British wedding bashes. Take a note from Diana and Charles’ wedding and travel from your ceremony to reception in a carriage. It may seem a little old-fashioned and over-the-top but when else in your life will you get the chance to have a truly romantic carriage ride? Or be a princess for your day and wear a jewel-studded tiara like all the royal brides. If a royal-esque wedding doesn’t suit your style don’t incorporate these details, but do look through this royal wedding slideshow.

You might remember this wedding invitation from a few months back when we were working with a bride who used this invite in a Moroccan themed wedding.  That particular bride customized this invite in grape, mulberry, caribbean blue, and apple green for a bold and stunning result.  Our classic version in orange is just as pretty though, creating an elegant yet edgy look.

Wedding Colors: Yellow and Gray Wedding Color Inspiration

Yellow and gray has been showing up everywhere in the wedding world so I decided it was time to throw my own little inspiration into the mix.

Birds Wedding Invitation

The invite shown is Modern Girl Invitations’ Birds Wedding Invitation It’s posted on the website in a few colors, but I particularly like the yellow and gray (and the caribbean and grape too, but that’s technically for a different day of color inspiration) 🙂

Birds Wedding Invitations

You can’t have a wedding with just invites alone, so I did a little inspiration boarding on Polyvore as well.  Lemons are always a great accessory to work into a yellow themed wedding, as well as daffodils or lilies.

Yellow and Gray Wedding with Birds

To keep with the bird theme, i added a funky bird necklace, that yes, believe it or not, is for sale for $12 at modcloth.com.  Think your maids could pull it off?  If you do, send me the pics! (I imagine it’s quite a bit smaller than it looks in the picture though) 🙂
