Ok, you’ve been planning your wedding for the last couple of years and had everything booked, sorted and organised, then along come William & Kate announcing their wedding day as Friday 29th April. Does this mean your day will be overshadowed by their celebrations? Absolutely not, and if you can’t beat them, join them. Maybe this is the perfect opportunity to bring out your patriotic side by hanging up the bunting and planning a right royal knees up of your very own, and it doesn’t need to cost a royal mint!
Of course bunting is a must, choose from this red,white and blue bunting, which come in various lengths starting at 8.6m for £10.50 from Flag and Bunting Store, or go all out with this union jack bunting also from the Flag and Bunting Store which also comes in varying lengths starting with 6m for £7.99. The same company also sell pack of 12 hand held flags which would be perfect to hand out to your guests so that they can wave about to celebrate after the ceremony rather than throwing confetti.
Using red, white and blue floral dispalys for the reception tables can be difficult as blue flowers tend to be light blue, although deep blue delphiniums are a good choice if they are in season otherwise they could be pricey. Artificially dying white roses or lilies is also an option but again this can be pricey, s0 unless you have the royal budget then another use striking blue vases with red and white flowers to achieve the royal look.
