9 Royal Wedding Trends to Keep on Your Radar
The experts at WeddingWire shared their predictions and trends.
The countdown to the royal wedding is officially on. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to be married in spring 2018, so let the speculation begin about the wedding dress, location, guest list, reception menu, and more. The experts at WeddingWire, the wedding planning website, compiled a list of trends and predictions for the upcoming nuptials. According to WeddingWire trend and royal expert, Anne Chertoff, we can expect a dress with a super-long train, an open carriage entrance, and two wedding receptions.
Chertoff explained our obsession with the upcoming royal wedding: “Americans are fascinated with the royal family, and specifically royal weddings for a few reasons. First, many of us are raised on fairytale stories, such as the Disney princess movies, so the royal weddings with titles of princes and princesses bring up childhood memories of stories that have a happy ending. Second, Americans love a great romance. They love that unlike princes and princesses from decades and centuries ago—and even Harry's own parents—Prince Harry is allowed to marry for love. He met Meghan through a friend, and they dated for over a year—the way many of us meet our partners—so it’s relatable. Plus, Meghan’s an American which makes their story truly unique!”
