Down the Aisle

With Prince William and Kate Middleton’s nuptials close approaching, most of us are waiting to see the happy ending of a love story, and how glamorous the event will be- from the wedding dress to the ceremony and reception.

How to compose a table setting fit for royalty? Well, it has to be a formal setting set symmetrically, and all the decoration- candles, cards, and flowers- should create visual harmony and balance.

So, I started the hunt for images of previous famed weddings, whether royal or not… All the brides in these images knew the subtle power of presentation, from dress to table setting. They all shared the magic of the exquisite understated elegance.

No one out shown Grace Kelly. I wonder what Prince Albert's bride to be will wear-she is quite lovely in an athletic GK sort of way.
