The royal wedding was the hot ticket everyone was after,and according to People, it didn’t disappoint.  The reception was an ‘exclusive’ and ‘cozy’ event that every guest enjoyed.  Prince William and Kate Middleton invited all of their close family and friends, which consisted of 650 people total.  According to Alex van Straubenzee, father of the late Henry van Straubenzee, “It was very cozy.  There was a wonderful relaxed atmosphere.  There were lots of people there – even in a place as big as Buckingham Palace.  I won’t say it was informal, but everyone was having a wonderful time.”  The guests were served two wedding cakes, a traditional fruit cake and a chocolate biscuit cake which was Prince William’s pick because it’s from an old family recipe.

Cupid’s Advice:

Not everyone can have a wedding reception fit for a royal, but Cupid has suggestions for some unique wedding reception ideas:

1. Keep it cozy: You can always have a reception a little bit like Prince William and Kate Middleton’s by inviting your closest friends and family to the reception.  Your special day will mean a lot to them just as it means a lot to you.

2. Make it relaxed and fun: A great way to celebrate tying the knot is by having a fun “cocktail” hour type of reception.  A lot of people think that the best part of a wedding is the reception, so why not dance the night away by making your reception a little bit like a night club?  Keep it fun, simple and relaxed so you and your guests have a great time.

 

 

3. Make it intimate and romantic: Set up some candles, have romantic music playing and make your wedding reception just as memorable as the wedding ceremony itself.  Keep the feeling of love in the air and show your guests just how much you and your significant other love each other.
