Another week was packed with weddings! We had a total of 5 weddings over the course of the week including a ceremony on both Wednesday and Friday and each wedding had its own, unique look.

All eyes were on the Royal Wedding at the end of April and two of the biggest questions surrounding the big day were 1). What will Kate’s dress look like and 2). What will her bridal bouquet look like?
Kate looked classic and elegant in her modern take on a classic dress and chose a simple, chic bouquet made of lily of the valley, sweet william, hyacinth and myrtle ( a royal tradition). In stark contrast to Princess Diana’s bouquet, Kate’s bouquet was a small clutch instead of a cascade.

So…if you’re not a princess-to-be but want Kate’s look on a commoner’s budget here are some ideas…
