Designing a Wedding Fit for a Royal


Now that you’ve had your quintessential Prince Charming pop the question, you have to start pulling together all the different elements to create a wedding that’s fit for your inner princess.

For many brides, getting started can be difficult – there are just so many options!

If you have your heart set on a wedding and reception with the royal treatment, then here is how you can start.

Elegance is everything

Among the most memorable aspects of your special day is your gown, so don’t allow yourself to be tempted by poor tailoring or of-the-minute trends. Poor tailoring can show up in your photography and can make you look and feel awkward at a time you should be enjoying.

This stunning Mori Lee 5476 dress is a pinnacle of design with crystal embellishments on the bodice and a full, elegant skirt. Offering a clean, crisp line, Mori Lee dresses, like the 5476, are beautifully tailored for ultimate style without compromising comfort. This particular dress is understated without compromising on quality, and should be high on the list if you’re looking for a gown fit for a queen.


Less is always more

When it comes to theme colours, designs and features, less is always more for a tasteful, classy wedding.

Not only does this make it easier to manage your planning, it creates harmony, enhances the ambience and can help you better manage your budget without spending money on additional knick-knacks.

For instance, white pillar candles, small arrangements of your bouquet-style flowers and simple calligraphy on place cards and seating charts can make all the difference.


Shy away from gimmicky, gaudy or overly bright colours

One of the trademarks of a gorgeous event is understated and restrained colours. Some of our favourite events have seen brides and planners stick to a small range of natural shades to create impact:

  • Gold and cream
  • Blush, warm pink and crisp white
  • Black and off-white
  • Apricot, white and gold
  • Taupe and white
  • Caramel, gold and pearl
  • Dove grey, black and white
  • Pearl and white

Know where to invest in your budget

Few brides get free reign to spend whatever they want on a wedding and reception, so nominating your must-haves will make it easier to control your budget and create the event of your dream.

If photography is the most important aspect, then look to what you can afford and see if you can get a photographer to work with you to create your ideal images.

If ambience is most important, then when you review venues see if the staff and managers can cater toward your special needs with menus, personalised cocktails, linens, lighting and decorations.


Choose what makes you happy

The best weddings are ones where the brides get to enjoy everything they want. While the above points offer ideas and suggestions, what it comes down to is that you and your husband-to-be have a great time sharing one of the most special times in your lifetime.
