There’s something so magical about weddings. The joining of two soulmates, the beautiful gowns…But there’s something downright majestic when it comes to a wedding that involves royalty.
People across the globe are waiting in anticipation for the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The special event will include two receptions, British armed forces and a horse drawn carriage procession after the ceremony – just like in the fairytales.
While the wedding taking place on May 19 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor might be literally fit for royalty, you can recreate that regal feeling at your wedding.
Here is how to have a royal wedding in Connecticut.
Nothing sets the scene more perfectly for a royal wedding than the location. If exquisite taste is what you have in mind, then the glamour of tradition cannot be left off the list. Most royal weddings happen at locations not only decorated by breathtaking architecture, but that are also historic landmarks and grand spaces.
The Society Room of Hartford is a premier Connecticut venue offering this same ambiance.
The truly classic and elegant setting for your wedding day will make you feel like a member of the noble class.
Located in the heart of one of New England’s oldest and most iconic cities, the historic building has marble, limestone, brass and bronze accents as well as ornate plaster reliefs and intricate and elaborate ceiling murals.
No royal wedding is complete without a grand entrance. At The Society Room of Hartford you’ll enter the reception via a sweeping staircase that flows down from a 3,000 sq. ft. mezzanine to an opulent ballroom where you’ll greet all your guests. There you’ll be encountered by grand marble columns soaring to a classic mural ceiling, some thirty five feet above the dance floor.
Another way to up the “wow factor” for your own wedding fit for royalty, is to keep that exquisiteness going throughout the day. From the décor and accents you choose. Tie in old world traditions with your own stylings. Think red carpet, over the top center pieces, gold accents, gemstones and rich color choices. Each space adjacent to the dance floor has its own unique grandeur and historic character and photographic opportunities galore.
Food and Service
To complete the royal wedding treatment, remember that food and service fit for a king and queen is a must. Tables adorned with polished silver stemware, chinaware and the finest top shelf spirits and cordials along with elegant wine selections, imported cheeses and meats and a selection of culinary entrees served by seasoned chefs and banquet staff tailoring the entire day’s presentation to your needs.
