Your Royal Wedding

As we all know the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton are quickly approaching on April 29, 2011. There is something in all of us who get a kick out of fairytales especially if they are beyond the pages of our favorite childhood books.

Every bride is a princess on her wedding day, and while Kate will be a princess beyond her nuptials, you most certainly can implement royal elements for your moment in time.

The Dress


When I think of a princess I always envision the ball gown dress, you can envision the elegant movement of your dress across the dance floor during your first dance as man and wife. You should however keep in mind your body shape and what type of dress will flatter you best. There are always other elements that you can include on your gown to give you the royal feel, in the event that a ball gown wedding dress is not best for your shape.

No princess is complete without her crown, tiaras a readily available in a multitude of styles and price points. When purchasing keep in mind any gems that might be on your wedding dress and the color of your dress as well. Remember to have your crown when you are ready to work with your hair dresser so that you pick the perfect hairstyle for your crown.

When choosing your jewelry keep in mind your hairstyle, and the style of your dress. There will be so many options for you, but please resist getting them all. There is such a thing as overdone.

Choosing your venue will of course be tied to your budget, I would not recommend going over budget just for a venue, you have to live beyond the wedding. There are plenty of venues that are beautiful that will work within your budget. However, if your budget can afford a venue specific to your theme, consider a castle.

Take a look at a list of castles in the USA perfect for your royal wedding.

The Invitaions


Your invites ushers your guests into your day. It gives a glimpse into what your guest can expect for that day, they build excitement. Princess themed invitations are very popular and you are sure to find the right one for you.

As with any theme there is the possibility to go overboard. Take your time and select unique elements that will stand out and not overwhelm you day. Take your time and look for just the right items, don't buy the first that you see because you are sure to come across something you like better or maybe it is a better value. Enjoy your planning and enjoy your day because you are a princess who has found her prince and when all is said and done it is all about your love story.

Be Inspired by a fairytale...
