Royal Wedding Traditions you can steal for your own
We’re in a royal wedding fever, with the big day less than a month away. Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s wedding is bound to be a grand affair, and we’re sure all the brides-to-be across the country will be looking to the royal couple for wedding inspiration. In anticipation of the big day, we’ve put together some royal wedding traditions you might want to incorporate into your wedding day for a touch of regal.
It wouldn’t be a princess-worthy wedding without a tiara. Royal brides tend to borrow one from a family member – Kate Middleton’s was borrowed from the Queen’s collection. If you don’t have a family tiara (and who does, really?) you can find them and other sparkly accessories in most bridal stores.
Another way to feel like a princess on your wedding day is to opt for a dress with a longer train. Royal brides tend to make a statement with their wedding dress, and a long train is the simplest way to do it.
Riding off into the sunset in a horse-drawn carriage, does it get any more royal than that? It’s tradition for royal newlyweds to ride to their reception in a carriage, which is the ideal way to add a touch of princess-like elegance to your wedding day.
Two Wedding Receptions
Modern royal weddings have moved on from the traditional wedding breakfast, and now have two wedding receptions, one straight after the wedding and one in the evening. This is also an opportunity to show off a second wedding dress, and slip into something more comfortable for your evening celebrations.
A tradition that harks back to the wedding of Queen Victoria; all royal brides since have carried the myrtle plant in their wedding bouquets. This flower means good luck in marriage and prosperity.
