Wedding dress design:
The lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams. The focus of the dress is the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasizes the bride’s slender sculpted waist. The lines of the dress extend towards the back where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The slim three-quarter sleeves add a note of refined modernity.
The veil was 16 feet long and featured the flowers of all 53 Commonwealth nations. While appearing plain in sight, and a bit drab, the details are extraordinary. Each Commonwealth’s country flower along with the California poppy (Meghan’s birthplace) and Wintersweet (the flower at Kensington Palace) were specially hand embroidered.
The wedding cake was designed by Claire Ptak and features elderflower syrup made at The Queen’s residence in Sandringham from the estate’s own elderflower trees, as well as a light sponge cake uniquely developed for the couple.
Following Royal tradition The Duchess of Sussex’s wedding bouquet is laid on the grave of the Unknown Warrior in the west nave of Westminster Abbey in London.
Almost 100 years ago, Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (known as Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother) established the long-held Royal Wedding tradition.
The gesture was in remembrance of her own brother, Fergus, who died at the Battle of Loos in 1915 and to pay tribute to the millions of others killed and injured in World War I.
Besides the gorgeous ceremony, we in the wedding industry were confused by the folding chairs that you buy at Walmart. Seriously, couldn’t they have rented a slightly better chair than outdoor picnic style.
How adorable are Harry and Meghan?! And what a cute multiracial couple they make; whatever the controversy that happens.
The future of fairy tales is here.
