Royal Wedding inspires new wedding trends

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - As the world watched the Royal Wedding, many brides-to-be were also keeping track of some of the more notable details hoping to grasp one or two to incorporate into their own upcoming nuptials.

Kristina Celik at Arizona Weddings Magazine says the classic style of the Royal Wedding is easy to emulate and points out three easy trends brides can add to her own big day.
First, Celik says, taking cues from William and Kate's wedding, the key is to create what she calls a table scape fit for a princess.

"The Royal Wedding tables were very elegant, but in an understated way," she said.
Second, Celik suggests following Princess Catherine's lead by selecting flowers with a meaning.

"Catherine's meaning was tradition, brides in Royal Weddings have carried all-white bouquets for centuries," Celik says.  "I'm not saying you need to have white flowers, but choose your bouquet based on something with a special meaning to you."

Third Celi says no Royal Wedding is complete without a variety of gourmet confections.

"Finger foods, sweets, call them what you will," Celik said, "Either way, they are very popular."

The mini table scape Celik shared was provided by Classic Party Rentals located at 3103 E. Broadway Rd. Suite 400 in Phoenix.  For more information call (602) 232-9900 or go to
