Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 15, 2010

Master Bridal Consultant, Mark Kingsdorf, owner of The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants in Philadelphia weighs in on the upcoming royal wedding.

Royal weddings have always set trends in the world of weddings, Kingsdorf says. Many of the traditions in today’s weddings date back to items made popular by Queen Victoria. Not only are traditional white wedding gowns and the modern white wedding cake attributed to Queen Victoria, but Princess Diana greatly influenced bridal fashion on the 80’s with her gown and train.

Prince William and Kate Middleton may be making Friday night weddings more popular. Friday nights can sometimes save brides money over more popular Saturday dates. We still have a hard sell as some brides still worry about guest and travel plans for Friday weddings Kingsdorf claims. A royal wedding on a Friday night may set a new trend.

The only thing which has disturbed Kingsdorf was the comment that the couple didn’t want a wedding planner as they wanted to make the wedding personal and reflect them. Any experienced wedding planner learns to listen first, insists Kingsdorf. It’s not my wedding, we don’t want people to walk away saying: that wedding was so Queen of Hearts – we try to bring out elements of the couples personalities as well as family traditions in each wedding we help in planning.

Only time will tell what kind of impact this fairytale royal wedding will have on wedding fashions and traditions for years to come; no doubt there will be an inexpensive reproduction of Kate Middleton’s gown on sale by the next day. Kingsdorf seems sure that this down-to-earth couple, who have traveled the world, are sure to infuse amazing, personal elements of color and cuisine into their wedding.
