The royal wedding flowers have been revealed and prepare yourselves for major envy. Where is our invite to the wedding?!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will meet each other at the altar on May 19, 2018, and their wedding is going to be gorgeous. Need proof? Just look at the royal wedding flowers!
As if you really need evidence as to why this wedding will be one to remember for decades to come, the floral arrangements are to die for. Anyone else getting married in 2018 will have some serious competition to put up with.
Royal Kensington Palace released the details of the royal wedding flowers on March 31, 2018.
The happy couple picked London-based floral designer Philippa Craddock for their wedding. Phillipa's floral shop has been operating since 2009 and she's regularly provided for Royal Kensington before! Some of her other famous clients include Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Hermes, and much more. Can you imagine what her tags on Instagram look like?
Royal Kensington Palace said in a statement:
The displays in St George's Chapel will feature foliage from The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park, and will use seasonal plants including branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves. The designs will reflect the wild and natural landscapes from which many of the plants will be drawn.
On top of that, they will also have pollinator-friendly plants from wildflower meadows. This is a crucial inclusion, as these plants provide a great habitat for bees and can help sustain a biodiverse ecosystem.
Phillipa is obviously quite excited about the opportunity to work with the royal couple for their big wedding day. In the official announcement , she said:
"I am excited and honoured to have been chosen by Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle to design and create their wedding flowers. Working with them has been an absolute pleasure. The process has been highly collaborative, free-flowing, creative and fun. The final designs will represent them as a couple, which I always aim to achieve in my work, with local sourcing, seasonality and sustainability being at the forefront."
Do you think she can sneak us an invitation to the big day? Probably not. We'll just be stuck waking up early to watch it on our couch!
