Marrying In May Like A Royal | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

My seamstress shop this month is filled from wall to wall with brides of all shapes and colors trying their bridal gowns on. Some of the dresses I saw while I was waiting, I would have not worn to a dog fight, others were the wrong style for the bride’s shape and, maybe only one, I would have approved. It was funny to see how some brides don’t think much of themselves, they put on anything as long as resembles a wedding gown. Getting married is one of the most important days in a woman’s life, especially if it is the first time, the bridal gown should be spectacular and enhance the best feature of a bride.

May is the preferred month to get married. May is fresh, the air is fizzy, flowers are in all in bloom, colors of nature are sharp, and everything smells good, the choice of flowers is perfect this month.
A British historic wedding is just about ready to happen. What if you want to get married like a royal, what would you do?

Let’s start from the invitations. If your wedding is more than a bunch of friends in jeans meeting at the beach, the invitations should describe the proper attire required for the ocasion.
Morning Coat, Lounge Suit or Black Tie for men and Day Dress with Hat for women. A night-time wedding does not require a hat.

There are rules to learn for wearing a hat. Your guests should choose a hat that does not block everybody’s view. Large brims and convoluted designs yes, are fine, as long as the hat is made with a see-through fabric and must not resemble too much like the mother of the bride’s hat. Usually a hat matches the color of the garment, a strong color outfit requires a strong color hat. This is not a set rule, often it is done this way. Wear the hat tilted to the right of the face, that’s is the proper way. I didn’t learn this anywhere, just felt right to wear my hats tilted on the right. Never take the hat off, not even at the dining table, unless the wedding reception is over.

A pair of gloves is one thing a bride should never be without. Truly, I would love to see women wearing gloves again and not only for formal affairs. Wearing gloves changes the character and the posture of a woman. With gloves, there are no sneakers, ripped jeans, messy hair, or mismatched colors.
I think gloves adds a touch of class and femininity, although, I am not so sure young women these days want to be feminine anymore. There is, however, in the crowd of middle age women, a new growing sensitivity towards dressing up in style.

As for the flower creations, keep it natural, don’t use flowers with strong scents, some people have allergy to flowers, keep a relaxed feel, be in tune with the gentle nature of May flowers. Some peonies are not fragrant, just look very beautiful and plump, mix them with silver birch stems with foliage and royal fern. I learned that’s what the British will do for a coming wedding.

I also learned that a yellow gold is the preferred metal for wedding band to attract the positive energy of the sun on you. Welsh mines produce the most valuable yellow gold, for your information. You don’t have to go that far to get the best wedding ring, any yellow gold will do the job and if it has some yellow diamond in it, more power to you.

In a royal wedding, when trumpets play, you know something is happening, either the Queen/King has arrived, or the bride is at the church’s steps. In your wedding, plan to have some musical instruments playing your grand entry. The sweet music of many violins played a classical music announcing the arrival of one of my clients at her wedding ceremony and it was magical.

I have played with the idea of having a royal wedding, why not? It is not forbidden to dream. We know what happens to people who dream big, they end up living in a castle with a prince consort.
Your wedding can be as royal as you make it with pompous and circumstances. You can tone it down or make it as visible as you like. The important thing is to organize your wedding to reflect who both of you are as a couple starting a new life, how you want your guests to feel in your special day and that you the bride look radiant. Ciao,
Valentina
