Royal Inspiration

Since I am having a winter wedding, I want to wear a shawl or scarf during the photos that will be taken outside. I was set on a fur shawl like the one below I found on etsy. I imagined wearing this for only a couple hours, just to keep warm.

But after watching the royal wedding I fell in love with Kate’s jacket she wore with her second dress. I could do multiple blog posts on the royal wedding. I loved watching every second of it and yes I did get up at 4:30AM to see it live! Now I want to find a cute jacket like Kate wore…I am on the hunt!

Royal Wedding, Attire for the Guests

If you look at the invitation, the wedding attire was specified as uniform, morning coat, or lounge suit. I think it goes without saying that the attire detail that everyone cared about was the hats.

And we cannot talk about the hats without starting off with Princess Beatrice. It was a jaw dropping creation. I am interested to see if the Princess turns into a fashionista ala Isabella Blow or Daphne Guinness. The milliner that designed most of the hats worn at the wedding is none other than Philip Treacy.

Members of the royal wedding kept with a more traditional look. I would love to plan a morning wedding where the ladies wear lovely hats and the gentlemen wear morning coats.

Stilettos are Fab but not for a 12 hour day.

I could do an entire week’s worth of posts on the dressing disasters I see among wedding guests.

#1 – Shoes

I can tell you that if there is a noon ceremony and the reception isn’t until 6PM, then your feet are going to be hurting before the cocktail hour ends. That is why I love these: fold-up ballet flats by Fit in the Clouds that can fit into your handbag. For only $22, I think they are a total bargain and much more chic than going barefoot.
