Green is the charming color of 2011.

Soirees, shopping sprees, wedding receptions and all other bridal destinations are reportedly to be awash in green. You’ve gotten your “green light” so plan ahead. Green it is!

Green is contagious! Consider this: On Friday, Financial Times contributor, Carola Long, posted that her favorite Pantone pic for summer/autumn/fall: ever-green. She made a convincing argument in a charming article.

We’ve all seen the wedding (maybe more than once!!).  We oohed and ahhed over the dress (and the second dress!), the incredible earrings, the TWO kisses and of course, Harry!!

Now that the calm has come after the beautiful, beautiful storm I thought I would share the details of baci designer stationery + events’ Royal Wedding Party; hosted at baci’s home office to celebrate the nuptials of Will and Kate with clients, local Northwest Ohio vendors, friends and family!  It all started with custom designed invitations designed and printed by baci designer stationery + events, complete with a gold wax seal.

How to Get Kate Middleton’s Look!

Posted by Guest Blogger on Apr 30, 2011

Kate Middleton wore a custom-designed wedding dress by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. The lace and satin wedding dress featured long sleeves, a V-neckline, full skirt and a train that reached almost 7-feet.

The wedding dress was a classic design that took inspiration from both nature — the skirt resembles a flower opening and there are hand-cut flowers embroidered on the lace — and traditional Victorian details — a corset, padded hips and 58 buttons fastened by Rouleau loops on the back of the dress.

I thought the dress was very similar to the iconic wedding dress Grace Kelly wore when she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956. Because of the similarities brides who want the “Kate Middleton look” for their wedding won’t have to worry about having a custom made gown. Many designers have similar designs in bridal salons now. Romona Keveza’s Legends line is inspired by iconic brides and have several wedding dresses that feature long lace sleeves. Here are some of my favorite look-a-likes:

Come join our Royal Wedding Party!

Who could wish for more than see the wedding through the eyes of a member of the Royal Family, Jonathan Sandys, a great-grandson of Winston Churchill, whose ancestors join this English Monarchy in the mid-1700, when a Spencer married a Churchill. The rest: Royal English History.

Jonathan Sandys called from London today! The UK is on High Royal Wedding Watch alert. He has a unique position in this Royal Affair, and as promised, Jonathan has given me a number of brilliant and behind-the-scenes insights to this Royal Affair on Friday.
