Stray from Saturday
While Saturday is the most popular day of the week to tie the knot, Kate certainly set a new trend by getting married on a Friday. The benefit of getting married on a Friday, is that it opens up the rest of the weekend for wedding events! And who would say no to that?
If you haven’t already seen it, Kate rocks an 18-carat sapphire and diamond engagement ring that belonged to William’s late mother, Princess Diana. This beautiful and totally unique ring is opening the door to a wide array of other styles, shapes and colors of engagement rings.
If you really want to emulate the princess’ look, opt for a gown with lace sleeves. It shows just enough skin, but still keeps it chic, feminine and sexy with a vintage twist – perfect for a princess.
Kate’s sister, Pippa, rocked a white dress as well, with a cowl neck and lace detailing. This has certainly set the trend for bridesmaids wearing white alongside the bride. But if you’re not down with your girls sporting the white hue as well, opt for a colored dress with the same neckline as Pippa’s.
Giving to a good cause
While it’s totally OK to ask your guests to contribute to the registry to help you and your better half build your home, you could also go a non-traditional route as well. William and Kate requested donations to their favorite charities instead. If you don’t think you need that extra toaster or coffee maker, you may want to think about giving back.
Create a wedding website
William and Kate kept everyone up-to-date with their own wedding website, which even featured a live Twitter feed. They also streamed their nuptials on YouTube for the whole world to see. Granted, you don’t have to tie the knot in front of millions, but it’s very princess-like to keep all of your guests informed about everything wedding-related.
