The Royal Wedding is right around the corner and we can hardly hold our excitement!
One of our favorites things here at RSVP to me is of course weddings! We are very closely involved with creating custom invitations and stationery that fit the personalities of our clients. I for one was a bit surprised when I first laid eyes on the Royal Invitation. Maybe ‘disappointed’ is a better word…
When I look at Prince William and Kate Middleton, I see a young couple who is anything but ordinary and really are only royal because, well, William is…They seem to be as non-traditional as anything the kingdom has seen. So it is a surprise to see such a generic invitation for such a historic event. If you ask me, I think the Queen had her hand in this one! I really don’t want to say it is a horrible choice of stationery, because the invitation itself is beautiful, I just don’t see it working for this couple in particular. I would have loved to see some Royal Blue incorporated with a layer or a metallic border, something to have it pop!
This would bring everything together nicely since Kate did announce her engagement in that gorgeous Royal Blue dress by Issa, a London base fashion label. Plus who can forget the blue sapphire engagement ring that once belonged to Princess Diana to round out the Royal Blue look for the Royal Wedding.
The Royal Wedding will be televised in the U.S. and live coverage of the event will air through BBC America on Friday April 29th at 6:00 am ET. If you don’t have BBC America, E! Entertainment will be covering the event.
Set your alarm clocks or set your DVR’s! This is a MUST-SEE event!
