The Royal Wedding

Photo Source

The world watched today as Prince William married Catherine Middleton. To me it seemed like a modern fairy tale wedding of a girl marrying her prince. Kate looked breathtaking in her Sarah Burton designed wedding gown, looking like a beautiful princess. Prince William looked joyful as he turned to see his bride for the first time (side note, my favorite part of any wedding). We also saw the couple on the balcony kiss and Prince William blush. I love real moments in weddings.

What we want to know is what you thought of the wedding? What was your favorite part? What did you think of Kate’s dress?

Happy Planning!

French Inspired Bridal Shower

Candleholder Idea

Sweets Table Idea

Yesterday I was inspired by a Style me Pretty post about a french inspired bridal shower. I loved this idea so I decided to design my own french inspired bridal shower. You can see it above and next I will tell you about the design.

 

Tables: White table cloths with a black and white runner down the center. Black napkins will pop off the white base. Several flower arrangements in different sized black bases would run down the table. It would also have black candle holders mixed in for height and setting the mood. Finally, a chandelier would hand over the table to add the sparkle.

Food: Instead of a luncheon, I see this as a sweet bridal shower. A sweets table would be setup with a small cake, petit fours, macaroons and other sweet treats. Again, everything would be in black and white to keep the drama. I would again add a flower arrangement of white flowers and black base.

Invitations: I want a striking black and white invitation with a flourish. I want guests to get the drama before they walk in the door.

Fashion: To add the final touch, the bride would be given a white flower to place in her hair. I would also give the bridesmaids black flowers to wear. This way guests could know who was a bridesmaid, but they would be different then the guest of honor, the bride!

 

This is a dramatic and glamorous design. Have fun with this idea and make it your own. For instance, this can easily be adapted to fit a Chanel inspired shower for the fashionistas out there.

What do you think, would you like this shower? What would you add to make it your own?

Happy Planning!
