September 30, 2009
Well, here we go with another "what were they thinking" wedding party attire photo. It was definitely the trend for many years for different colors for different brides maids. Here, too, the flowers are different. Bouquets of different shapes and sizes that are of one single flower to match the color of the dress. Goodness, light blue, pink, lavender, yellow, all set off by the white of the bride. Strangely enough, the bridal bouquet is the smallest one here.
Not Royal wedding flowers, definitely. But the somewhat broken theme of the the flowers here remind me that in one royal wedding in particular, the attendants flowers differed at bit. For the wedding of then Lady Diana, the younger attendants carried basket arrangements, however, the oldest and maid of honor, then Lady Sarah Snowdon, daughter of Princess Margaret, carried a nosegay of similar type and color flowers. So, the trend isn't so weird after all, and is part of at least one royal wedding that I know of.
Royal Wedding Tidbit of the day...When Queen Elizabeth married Prince Phillip in 1947 there were 8 Brides maids... the two young gentlemen pages were Prince William of Gloucester and Prince Michael of Kent.
