    A lot of your pictures are nice.  I don’t like the idea of pretending to be a king and queen because of all the political and socal meanings behind a monarchy.  However, you could definitely use a lot of the aspects of the pictures above without the king/queen stuff.

    I think it would be cool to make your own original Coat of Arms or combine your two family crests. Also I would a make  a feature of both your first initials and print it on invites, napkins, placecards etc.

    I agree, I think king/queen is a little too… something?  I don’t like the idea of seeming more important than my guests or like I’m ruling over them?

    Edit: just saw your update.  I think if you theme it like the Tudors or just regal, it could be nice.  But I still personally wouldn’t wear a crown or use “king/queen” favors.

    @peachacid:  +1.

    I don’t get pretending to be royals if you’re not.

    I like some of those pics, but some are kinda hokey, like the one with the thrones.

    @MzJynxie:  I  had an adult Disney couples  inspired themed wedding last month. People did not like the idea but when they went to the wedding, many told us it was very beautiful. My main advice is to stick to theme if you are going for it, every detail must stay true to the theme. We did red roses, and up lights, and monograms and candleabras. Very royal and it was beautiful. Go for it if you love it! Also our colours made a statement, I think pink and gold look very royal and elegant but make sure whatever your colors are they fit well.

    When I first saw the title I was expecting something very tacky.  While I think it would be very easy to go overboard and I agree with PP about pretending to be royalty when you’re not, I do like a lot of the pics you have posted.  I think as long as you’re very careful not to go overboard or come across as being better than your guests you’ll be fine.  To me a lot of your pics look elegant rather than royal.  Maybe leave out the monograms, tiara, thrones and the likes?

    I only see regal in one or two of the pics. I imagine lots of red, purples, or blues when I think of royalty. Not gold and white, really.

    no offense, but my first thought was

    unnecessary

    seems way over the top to me – like the real reason for the day has been completely lost in all kinds of. . . stuff
