How has it been one whole year since the Royal Wedding?!

4 Royal Wedding Ideas To Recreate {The Floral Arch}

Well, we have to start with one of the biggest focal points of the celebrations. THAT floral arch. And you can recreate this one quite beautifully with almost any venue you choose. Decorate a beautiful doorway and have your guests enter under the lush foliage. Or frame your nuptials with a photographic stunner of an arch. Remember to work with your florist to play with scale, textures and even scents. Imagine guests breezing through an arch of heavenly scented jasmine? So many possibilities.

4 Royal Wedding Ideas To Recreate {The Hair and Makeup}
The Duchess of Sussex chose beautifully natural makeup and hair for her big day. Perfect if you prefer a natural look, or simply don't like the feeling of heavy makeup. This look is all about enhancing your natural features and using soft, warm colours. As for hair, the style chosen by Meghan perfectly complimented her look with a soft, wispy updo that looked both incredibly elegant and comfortable. Although I am sure she ended up discarding 6000 bobby pins that evening like the rest of us. A picture of Meghan's natural beauty sent our Instagram into a frenzy, as 24,000 of our followers conquered she looked flawless. Meghan Markle Bridal Hair and Makeup

Meghan's elegant gown was designed by Clare Waight Keller, artistic director of Givenchy. The open bateau neckline beautifully framed her shoulders.

4 Royal Wedding Ideas To Recreate {The Getaway}
Prince Harry had a fantastic bond moment emerging from the wedding reception in black tie attire, with his beautiful bride. Only to drive off together in a one-of-a-kind E-Type Concept Zero Jaguar with the top down. If you're leaving your guests to party and slipping away with your beau or simply just moving from venue to venue in style, then allowing a bit of budget for bride or groom to drive off in a fantasy car is certainly one way to exit in supreme style.
