The highly anticipated royal wedding of the year had to take a more of a back seat approach thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, Princess Beatrice finally married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in an intimate ceremony featuring only a handful of important guests, including the Queen of course, last weekend and it featured some extremely beautiful touches that were seen in the photographs released shortly after the wedding.
We are sharing the three details to take inspiration from Princess Beatrice’s lockdown wedding.
FLOWER WALLS & ARCHES
Floral arrangements are getting bigger in 2020, flower walls, arches and other huge floral arrangements are a popular addition to the modern wedding. Floral walls and arches are the perfect backdrop for every wedding, and will set a beautiful scene for photographs, just like they did for the royal bride and groom last week.
Not only were the floral walls and arches remarkable but the personal floral arrangement was absolutely breathtaking. Pale pinks are rising in popularity as the colour offers a soft and traditional tone, as you can see in the floral arrangements used by Princess Beatrice. You can either run pale pinks throughout your entire wedding theme or you can add pale pinks to floral arrangements alone, either way the colour is a beautiful way to add an elegant touch.
RECYCLE & REWEAR
With sustainability at the forefront of everybody’s minds in modern times, recycling and re-wearing wedding fashion has become bigger than ever. Many brides are opting to adjust and re-wear their mother or grandmother’s wedding dresses over going into a bridal store and buying a brand new dress. In Princess Beatrice’s case, she wore a gown by Norman Hartnell, on loan from the Queen, made from Peau De Soie taffeta and organza, trimmed with Duchess satin, and encrusted with diamanté.
