A Look Back at the Royal Wedding

As the news of a birth of a bouncing baby boy delights onlookers all across the world, we have been thinking back to the day Prince William and Kate Middleton got married. The Royal Wedding was every bit as magical and beautiful as it was promised to be. Nothing, from Victoria Beckham’s fashion choices to the Queen’s happy glow, was a disappointment. In fact, Kate Middleton’s dress was one of fashion’s most highly anticipated dresses of the year and it was nothing short of perfection. The dress exuded beauty, elegance, grace, and style which are all qualities Kate herself is said to possess. The breathtaking train, delicate lace sleeves, and sweeping skirt were all elements that would be found in a dress fit for a princess. The subtle V overlay, sweetheart bodice underneath,  and crisp, dramatic lines  made the gown look more modern, fashion forward, and undeniably royal. It was perfect for the space and the occasion.

Trend Report: Non-traditional Wedding Dresses

In the year 2013, all clear cut rules for weddings have become a thing of the past. You can invite whomever you want, eat whatever you want, and perhaps most importantly, wear whatever you want. That’s right, ladies! You absolutely do not have to wear a long white dress if you don’t want to. This is the year of color! All of our favorite designers are doing dresses in blush, red, pink and even in floral patterns. High-low and short dresses are popular now as well. Choosing a non-traditional dress is a great way to make sure that you stand out. If you are feeling daring, or just want to have a bit of fun, why not change up the wedding gown to create a huge impact? Whether you decide to play with color, shape, length, or all three, you will be remembered for your bold choice for years to come.
