The Royal wedding was a spectacle, full of celebrities, icons and brought about a new chapter in the dynasty of the Royal Family.
The new Duchess of Sussex looked elegant in her ivory dress – but one couldn’t help think that a luxurious bridal shawl to match would have complemented wonderfully. But not too worry, the star-studded guest list of 2,000+ people made up for it, with what seemed every female guest sat there in an extravagant hat and matching pashmina wrap. To be honest, I was surprised other guests could see the ceremony with all the outlandish hats in their way!
On the day, I was seeing a lot of blue hats and blue pashminas in particular, with the cobalt blue and dusky blue shades a very popular choice. A cobalt blue pashmina has always been popular with weddings so it was no surprise. True fact! – Cobalt blue is often mistaken for royal blue but a true royal blue pashmina follows Pantone’s Royal Blue shade of 19-3955.
The dusky blue pashmina on the other hand is something that become a very popular wedding shawl in the last 2 years (predominantly since it won Pantone’s colour of the year in 2016). Its subtle, pastel tone has made it thee choice for colour matching for brides and guests alike.
What I love about Prince Harry and Meghan is their genuine humbleness. The 2,000 or so guests wasn’t just celebrities but everyday people who make a difference and attempt to make Great Britain great!
The beauty of a pashmina is that you don’t have to be rich to own one. Once seen as only worn by Royalty, pashmina shawls are now worn by the everyday person mainly due to their affordability and their versatility allowing them to become a staple fashion accessory. This is why we also saw so many sporting a bold black coloured wrap, of which we suspect would of had the Pashminas & Wraps label inside 😉
The day was a great success and it brought the country together, in a time that is surrounded by uncertainty, so it was a lovely day all in all… the only thing we were missing was a Bank Holiday – Prince William is winning for that one! 🙂
From everyone at Pashminas & Wraps we would like to wish the happy couple a long and happy marriage.
