So whether you are a fan of the Royal Wedding or not, you can expect a lot of people to be looking at it tomorrow for that latest trends to hit the wedding industry! BUT what if you wanted to do a non-traditional, Unconventional Royal wedding? Something a little bit different?
Fear not Harry & Meghan! If you’d have checked out our tribe members & their friends first, here’s some of the awesome, alternative wedding touches you could have gone for instead ……..
House of Elliot (not windsor!)
Throw out your old fashioned, traditional lace for these stunning knee high boots from House of Elliot (definitely not Windsor for the alternative bride!). Here matched with stunning separates from Emma Hunt dresses available at Gillian Million. Photo from Ilaria Petrucci Photography . See full credits below.
Keep Calm! Its only a royal wedding!
So we reckon Harry and Meghan would have loved some more colour in their invites – so check out this ticket design by Made By Rae Designs. Bring out the flags!
A right royal street party
So we reckon a street party wedding reception would have been an awesome choice for their wedding reception. As long as your friends and family are around you the location does not matter! Photo by Kevin Taylor Overhead Photography.
Let them eat cake!
So you’ll still need a wedding cake for your Unconventional Royal Wedding day so why not go for an art / cake comtemporary combo! We love this one from tribe member Urban Cakehouse with floral artwork by Wendy Carlton.
A stand out alternative bouquet
Ditch the fresh flowers Meghan and go for a truly unique custom bouquet made to your exacting preferences – just like this one from tribe member Bouquet Chic Unique. And it will be a lasting keepsake too!
Toast the 'Unconventional' Couple!
Raise your ‘Unconventional’ glasses to Mr and Mrs …. (too many names!). Finish the day with these from tribe member, Me Time Glass.
The perfect royal slipper
You’ll need a proper royal ‘slipper’ Meghan for those delicate tootsies – so you definitely need a custom made pair of shoes like these ones from Lace and Love! Ditch Gucci and support a small business (or tribe member) instead!
And more touches for the Unconventional Royal wedding
