Top Three Must-Haves to Wed Like a Royal


Top Three Must-Haves to Wed like a Royal

With the wedding of the year rapidly approaching, Jade Lake, Senior Special Events & Weddings Executive at Hallmark Hotel The Welcombe in Stratford-upon-Avon shares her predictions for a rise in royal-esque weddings in 2018 and beyond.

Trumpets

No royal wedding would be complete without a set of trumpets. It’s been reported that The Ministry of Defence has made a request for 20 silver-plated fanfare trumpets stamped with the Royal Coat of Arms for the celebration.  It might seem like an unusual request for a ‘commoner’, but with couples increasingly breaking the mould when it comes to wedding traditions, we expect to hear fanfares at increasing numbers of nuptials in 2018 and beyond.

A cake with personality

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking wedding cake tradition by embracing summer flavours, with a bespoke £50,000 lemon and elderflower cake finished with wild flowers. We expect budding brides to continue in Meghan’s footsteps and opt for flavours that step away from the traditional rich fruit cake. We’ve already seen examples of this, in the form of tiered blocks of cheese for a savoury ‘cake’ to doughnut walls and cupcake and sweet stands

A horse-drawn carriage

For over 100 years, a horse-drawn carriage has been a royal wedding essential, to parade in in front of the gathering crowds of the Windsor streets. While we wouldn’t expect non-royal wedding carriages to be solid gold, we do expect to see a revival of this traditional mode of transport this year. In fact, at Hallmark Hotel Stratford-Upon-Avon The Welcombe we’re offering one for free with our ‘I do’ royal wedding package for weddings taking place this or next May!
