The Royal Wedding Recap
The royal event took place at Westminster Abbey in London, with 1900 people in attendance. And everything that we saw was absolutely stunning.
Hyacinth- Constancy of love
Ivy- Fidelity; marriage; wedded love; friendship; affection
Lily-of-the-valley- Return of happiness
Myrtle - the emblem of marriage; love.
Sweet William – Gallantry
Westminister Abbey was lined with trees, and featured an alter full of greenery. Among the 900 flowers used for the wedding were azaleas, white lilacs, rhododendron, and wisteria.
Kate's wedding cake was an 8 tiered fruit cake, with 900 sugar-paste flowers. It took five weeks to create, and was made to serve over 650 guests.
