The royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018 was a style defining event, and weddings for years to come will have elements that are inspired by their gorgeous, trend-setting day! From the gowns to the floral arches to that mouthwatering cake, the royal wedding is an easy go-to for lovely wedding details of the utmost style.

Meghan’s gorgeous tiered rustic lemon elderflower wedding cake will definitely inspire wedding cake designs worldwide this year. The buttercream icing was a departure from the “norm” of royal weddings, but all reports indicate it was fabulous!

Both of Meghan Markle’s dresses have already resulted in many an inspired replica on the racks and websites of wedding dress designer companies. Her sleek, boat neck wedding dress was breathtaking, yet understated, and her mermaid style reception dress was equally elegant. Brides this year are sure to be trying on dresses inspired by the royal wedding!

From the dramatic arches that greeted wedding guests outside the church to Meghan’s all white bouquet, the flowers from this royal wedding will surely inspire the floral designs of countless upcoming weddings. The grand scale of the floral arches juxtaposed the whimsical branches in a way that was fresh and totally inspirational.

When a girl has so many precious friends and sisters, how can she decide on a reasonable (reasonable, whatever that means!) bridesmaid list that reflects all the seasons of her life, and doesn’t exclude anyone important? Meghan and Harry decided to forgo the typical American bridal party and went royal-wedding-traditional, accompanied by an adorable group of flower girls and pages.
