The Royal Wedding
If you haven’t guessed by reading our blog, everyone at Arenlace Bridal Boutique loves weddings. We love making your special day feel like it’s a fairytale. So if you are wondering if we were watching The Royal Wedding . . . you don’t even have to ask!
It’s like watching a real-life Cinderella story.
Now that the royal wedding worldwide mania is dying down, we want to share our favorite moments.
Pint-sized bridal party
Meghan chose not to have adult bridesmaids since she didn’t want to choose amongst her friends and family. Instead, Meghan had 6 pint-sized bridesmaids and four pageboys that were made up of her godchildren and royal youngsters. They were absolutely adorable!
The best part of being able to include the younger members of your family – nieces, nephews, or godchildren – is being able to shoot adorable bridal party photos like the one below.
Father-in-Law of the Bride
In a touching gesture, Prince Harry’s dad, Prince Charles, walked the beautiful bride down the aisle in place of her father, who was not able to make the wedding. It had been announced that Meghan’s father was to walk his daughter down the aisle, but he had to have emergency surgery.
Prince Charles stepping in made all of our hearts melt.
As Meghan walked down the aisle, her 16-foot-long silk tulle veil trailed behind her. The hand-embroidered veil featured flowers that represented all 53 Commonwealth countries. Arenlace knows a little something about making things handmade, so we are all the more impressed by this symbolic and beautiful treasure.
“You look amazing.”
It was clear from the media coverage that the first words Prince Harry said when Meghan reached the alter was, "You look amazing." Every woman wants to feel like a princess on her wedding day. I think this Prince nailed it.
If their PDA is any indication, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will live happily ever after. We wish the best of love and luck to Meghan Markle Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry Duke of Sussex.
