Royal Wedding Traditions

As William & Kate get married this Friday they will be following some Royal Wedding traditions. And, because they are young, and it’s modern times, they will also not be partaking in some common wedding rituals.

Traditions they are following:

  • Kate’s gown will have sleeves due to both Royal and Church of England protocol
  • A white dress is a must as it’s a Royal tradition that dates back to the very first white wedding dress worn by Queen Victoria
  • Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue
  • Kate’s wedding band will include Welsh gold, a Royal tradition
  • The bouquet will have a sprig of myrtle in it
  • Her bouquet will be left in Westminster Abbey at the grave of the “unknown warrior”
  • Once married they will share a kiss on the balcony
  • Prince William and his Bride will sleep in separate residences on the eve of their wedding
  • Their wedding procession will follow the tradition Westminster route

Traditions they are not following:

  • Kate will arrive to the ceremony by car rather than by ceremonial coach
  • Three different clergymen will conduct the marriage instead of just one
  • William will not wear a wedding band, he’s simply not a jewelery wearing kind of guy

Will you be watching on Friday to see the dress, the decor, the glamour and the love? We will be up at 3am taking it all in as I was asked to write a piece for The Hamilton Spectator giving a Planner’s prospective on the grand affaire!

We look forward to writing a few posts about the wedding, the first being featured on the 30th.

the Royal House of Love

Prince William will marry Catherine Middleton in 9 days!

As a Bride-to-be you might be just as excited about this wedding as we are! We’ll be watching the Royal Wedding on April 29th, taking in all the glitz & glam!

It’s been known that the Royals can be a bit stuffy. I hear that Kate & Wills aren’t even allowed to kiss after their “I do’s” within Westminster Abbey. But if you watch this “wedding rehearsal” video, it will show you that the Royals know how to cut loose and have a good time…..

*Video is a spoof from T-Mobile
* These are actors, not the Royals – although, wouldn’t it be fab if this really happens? LOL!

Rain on your Parade

They say that rain on a wedding day is good luck.

We say, if you think that it’s going to rain, you should be prepared. Spring weddings have a higher chance of rain than Summer or Fall weddings – although, lately, Ontario weather has been so hard to predict. Therefore, we suggest you be prepared and roll with the punches, or storm clouds… the best you can.

Overcast and rainy days can sometimes make for the best wedding pictures! Just ask your Photographer for his/her thoughts. I bet they will agree. They may even be able to show you some examples which will ease your mind if rain should fall.
Outfitting your wedding party (WP) with rain boots and umbrellas is not only a popular trend for Spring weddings, but is also very smart. Match the umbrellas and boots to your wedding colours or personality (plaid, stripes, polka dots).
Be sure to get large umbrellas for two members of your WP to use (golf size) and have a few on hand for your guests. The only time you want your face to get wet is when you shed a few tears of joy – so try to stay dry the best you can. Having rain boots and umbrellas also make for fabulous and unique photos. And, if it doesn’t rain, you can always use those items simply as props.

No matter what Mother Nature throws at you on your wedding day, be prepared, have fun, and smile!
