Become a Top Wedding Planner – “Royal Wedding” Theme On “My Fair Wedding”


With the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton about a month away, it seems only fitting that celebrity wedding planner David Tutera would be planning a royal wedding themed event for a bride who considered herself royalty. Although most brides who want a royal wedding want to be a princess, this bride wanted to be a grande dame, a sophisticated, modern royal bride.

David found the plans the bride had made to be lacking in any royal touches. Her bridal gown and the bridesmaids’ dresses all looked like Grecian gowns. Her decor ideas were not opulent and there was nothing royal about her choice of a friend’s backyard as her venue.

He put the bride in a beautiful Ines Di Santo white ballgown with beading across the bodice that looked like the scallops of crystals that hang on a chandelier. The skirt had pickups on the sides that looked like pieces of chandeliers. 

The bridesmaids were given purple, one-shoulder, fitted full-length gowns with ruffles, from the Sung Boutique.

The style of the dress worked well for a variety of body types.

The venue David chose was the legendary Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. The ceremony took place in the lobby with the bride and groom ascending the grand staircase to give their vows.

The reception took place in the ballroom of the hotel. Because the space itself was opulent, David focused decor on the dining tables. The lighting company spotlighted the tables to bring out the decor and the natural colors of the floral arrangements.

In keeping with the royal wedding theme, the caterer created an international feast of dishes that would suit members of royalty. It included Scottish smoked salmon on crispy shallots, a French-style salad of butter lettuce, arugula and baby greens with black pepper mustard dressing, and New Zealand baby rack of lamb with a Cabernet sauce.
