The Royal Wedding, taken to celebrate the communion between Prince Harry & Meghan Markle, was a sight to behold. Not only did it cost three times more than the wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, but it seemed to be an even more star-studded event that before. This is in part due to the fact that Meghan Markle has had one foot in the Hollywood A-List for a few years, but many high level British celebrities were also given an invitation.
There are some things we can learn from this event. Of course, you’ll likely not have the access to investment that this event entailed. You might not be able to invite George Clooney, or if you can he might not attend. There are a few things you can learn from this wedding however, and they are as follows:
Invest In Your Dress
Investing heavily in your dress is one of the most important things to do. While the extravagance of a five-meter long veil is not something that everyone can afford or even desire, it’s important for you to look and feel your best on your wedding day. With the ability to consider repeat fittings, to implant the floral design in a customized manner, and to get a second opinion will always matter. Ideally, the dress should take priority over the suits, as they are less customized items and can be found in quality for much less investment. You might decide to go designer, and wear the most beautiful Vera Wang wedding dress you can find. You might decide to go a little cheaper, and compromise on features such as the veil or sewn design in the hems. However, the fact remains that investing in your dress will always be of an essential nature, and this should help you feel absolutely radiant on your wedding day.
After the royal event, over £300,000 worth of flowers and floral decorations were donated to charity. These flowers made their way to hospitals, elderly care homes, and other deserving institutions. While you may not have the same monetary value to give to many people, simply allowing for some quality decoration to be donated to charity could make the week of a deserving person.
Not only that, but there are many other things you could give. If it wasn’t floral decorations, it could be table decorations, or bunting, or a wide array of other valuable implements someone may find use in. If no charity will take them or seems to desire them, consider keeping hold of them until the next important family event raises its head.
Despite the millions of viewers of the televised broadcast around the world, and tens of thousands of people flooding the streets to wish the newlyweds well, the most intimate part of the ceremony between Harry & Markle were conducted behind closed doors, with only a close array of family. From this we can learn that no matter how large our event, or how many reputable compatriots we might have called to show their face, your wedding will always be an intimate affair that means the most for your closest family, and the closest family of your bride or groom.
The royal wedding was interesting and a true spectacle. With these lessons learned, your upcoming wedding could be that little bit better.
