DEAR PRESTON: WAS THE ROYAL WEDDING’S DECOR A BORE?
June 7, 2011
The Royal Wedding was very beautiful and romantic, and I loved watching it. They were clearly going for an elegant look, but I thought the decor was a little boring. What did you think?
Yes, the Royal Wedding was very romantic! Even more importantly, Prince William and Kate looked very much in love and seemed to be having a great time. Remember, though, that this was truly a ROYAL wedding. Royalty, especially British Royalty, do things differently than you or I might do them for one of our private clients. I’m sure there was a lot of protocol involved. Consider, too, what the Prince and his bride wanted.
That being said, I hear what you’re saying. After all, I do come from the school of thought that more is always better. I’m also a firm believer that elegant doesn’t have to mean boring. And as wonderful as the decorative trees looked inside Westminster Abbey, I do wish they had used more flowers. Though, I bet you knew I was going to say that, right? You know I love flowers, folks! They could have even put flowers in the trees; I think that would have looked gorgeous.
Readers, what do you think? Was the Royal Wedding decor perfect just the way it was? Or do you think it could have used a little more pizazz? Please chime in!
