How to Personalize Your Raleigh Wedding: Inspired by the Royal Wedding

It has been two weeks since the royal wedding monopolized our Saturday and social media feeds, yet, its presence in our culture and weddings is still apparent. The ceremony was unlike past royal weddings by maintaining tradition while also being unique to Harry and Meghan. The royal couple made it their own with personal touches and individual moments. Every couple, royal or not, can take inspiration from this and incorporate one-of-a-kind details into your wedding at Merrimon-Wynne.
