A Royal Wedding in Western Colorado?!
If you are in love with the royals as much as I am, then I think we should be friends! I mean, did you get up at 3am for Kate and William? I sure did and sipped on champagne! Or maybe you had a girls brunch while you were watching Meghan and Harry! So how do you pull off a Royal Wedding on the western slope? Let’s start with the basics…
The first thing you are going to need is a tiara! Every princess needs a crown on her big day. After that just add in a few of the traditions, and you will be hosting your very own royal wedding
Okay, maybe it’s not quite that simple. Let’s dive into the three most important steps:
Top 3 Royal Wedding Must-Haves:
1. Rise and shine for an early morning ceremony. Most royal wedding ceremonies start in the morning and the celebration moves into afternoon cocktails. (I think I would be able to handle this, mainly because who doesn’t love champagne cocktails?!)
2. Keep it classic and traditional with dinner, a royal dinner is always plated, served and fabulous! You won’t see a BBQ buffet or family style dinner at a royal wedding. Everything is proper and perfectly placed. This might be a good time to brush up on your fine dining skills and always make sure you say thank you to the parents and and living grandparents at the wedding!
3. Top-shelf bar and proper wine pairings are norm for all formal dinners. You will not find a cash bar option, wine or beer! Everything is done with intentional pairing with the dinner selections for a unified, high end dining experience!
With the recent royal weddings, we are seeing more and more couples adopting some of these traditions for a more fancy feel to their big day. Hopefully these few insights will help you on your way to creating your very own royal wedding! If you are planning a wedding like the royals, tag us #WEDwestslope in the pictures, I’m dying to see!!
