Royal Wedding on a Budget

Plan your own version of a royal wedding on a budget. Use Kate's regal, simple and elegant theme and a little creativity and you can plan a wedding fit for a prince and princess. Visit your local carpet company for red carpet remnants. Rent plants from your local florist or decor company to create a breathtaking look down the center aisle. Create your own signature crest using fee logo making sites on the Internet. Don't forget the dress.  Scour local second hand stores or resale stores for vintage lace dresses or visit your local bridal salon for a simple dress and  hire a seamstress to add personal touches. Follow these steps and you're own your way to planning the fairytale wedding of your dreams.
