    Regal is in the details, but you can make it up-to-date regal.  Look at the current Prince and Princess of England.  They are young, not over the top, but everything is detailed, clean, and classic.  This can mean alot of things.  An amazing charger under the plates, a one or two color trend throughout the entire wedding (something just looks amazing when a single color is used alot, like a silver or a white), and then add the special little details like in the favors or the flowers.

    I love the regal theme!  We also went with that theme.  We are putting old black and white photos of our relatives getting married on big easels.  Our venue is an old castle and my dress is a Maggie Sottero decadence gown.   My bridesmaids are also wearing long gowns.  It should be fun!

    I like the idea of it… it all looks so beautiful.  But it might be too fancy pants for our tastes. I ove the whole Princess ideal… so I am wearing a princess ballgown, tiara (not a huge tacky one), blinged out jewelry (not over the top), etc.  But the entire wedding is pretty simple in decor with a casua elegance feel (we hope).

    I think there’s a line between something being elegant and refined and completley theme park crazy…and that line is located right before the thrones and crowns….you want an extravangant affair, no worries!  Go for it!  You wanna be a princess? Make sure your Fiance is a prince.

    I love everything except the things that scream actual “king and queen”, but I’m not big on actual “themes” in general, I’d prefer it just as more of a “feel” of royal with jewel tones and lush fabrics rather than actual thrones and crowns and whatnot

    @MzJynxie:  it is all so pretty, but a bit lavish for me. But hey, it looks amazing and if that fits your style then go for it! My only suggestion is to not get too into the theme, sometimes people can go overboard with the themes.  I think subtle is key! I cant wait to see the final pictures!

    i agree. There are some beautiful pictures that you posted, mainly the flowers and centerpiece decorations. I really am not into the thrones, crowns, and what not. I just don’t understand that.

    To me, for something to look actually “regal,” it must look high quality (fine details show no skimping) and not casual.

    Many times I see attempts to go regal go in a direction that makes me think of children’s princess costumes/accessories.

    More is not always more… attention to detail is most important in pulling this off.
