With all the hype surrounding the Royal Wedding, it’s only natural that it will start to influence the style of weddings around the world and here at Stonebridge Manor. Some of the elements that William and Kate incorporated are ones that many brides have been doing for years, but will now gain exponential popularity after millions of people viewed the Royal Wedding. Check out the Royal Wedding trends that we think will become popular moving forward:

Elegance In Lace… Kate looked simply stunning in her gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. The scalloped neckline and lace covered bodice will surely be an influence in all bridal design houses. A sophisticated, elegance is something we will be seeing in brides.

Bridesmaids in White… Although this is very common in British weddings, we don’t see in the US too often. While we don’t think it will necessarily become a popular trend, we will see it more often now, or at least a variation of it with bridesmaids in pale, pale shades of champagne, yellow or pink.

Fairy Tale Horse Drawn CarriageWhat says “fairy tale wedding” more than a horse drawn carriage? You don’t have to be royalty to enjoy this luxury! A horse drawn carriage ride is a memorable way to add a touch of charm and elegance to your wedding day.

Charity Registry… William and Kate requested donations to their favorite charitable organizations in lieu of wedding gifts. This is a trend that’s becoming more and more popular, especially since today’s brides and grooms marry later in life and often already have all the home goods they need. Even if you’d still like to register at your favorite department store, you can start a charity registration as an option for your guests. Choose a cause (or two!) that is significant to the both of you.

Two cakes!!… William and Kate had a traditional 8-tier wedding cake but also offered a second cake that was a Royal family recipe, a favorite of Prince Will’s since childhood. Incorporating a second cake that ties into family traditions or cultures will be a trend to look out for.

Whether you are looking for a modern, elegant, and sophisticated wedding like The Royal Couple or something bold, beautiful and untraditional; Stonebridge Manor is here to make your BIG day special and true to you.
