Unless you happen to live under a rock, it's pretty much impossible to avoid the constant buzz surrounding the royal wedding coming up next month. Although I have to admit that for as much as I adore all things weddings, I just haven't been able to get into this one yet! Even as a teenager, I was never much for the Hollywood gossip or idolizing of celebrities (or in this case, British royalty). However, I can definitely understand the excitement of it all. I was a little too young to really appreciate the last royal wedding several years ago, but my mom tells me that she still remembers exactly where she was when she watched Diana marry Prince Charles on television in the middle of the night.
The timeless grandeur and rich elegance of royalty will always have a place in weddings. It can be a fabulous source of inspiration for brides; the mind could run wild with rich jewel tones, dramatic ivory gowns, ornate patterns and crystal chandeliers!
