What makes a Royal Wedding?
The nature of a royal wedding is that one of a country’s leaders is marrying and as a result becomes a moment the entire country wishes to be a part of. Royal weddings have been televised since Princess Margaret’s wedding in 1960 was televised in the UK.
From ultra-long bridal veils to diamond tiaras, no expense is spared for a royal wedding. Think opulence yet timeless. Lavish yet elegant. Gold is the color most associated with royalty so its no surprise it’s a popular choice for royal weddings.
The trademark of a royal wedding is the bride’s diamond-encrusted tiara. However, outside of Buckingham Palace, it’s a much more realistic to wear a tiara that is extremely well made with top of the line materials like Swarovski Crystals, and extremely high quality Simulated Diamonds so it LOOKS like diamonds – but doesn’t need it’s own security detail.
