Every little princess dreams of that perfect Fairytale Wedding. You know; the one with the horse drawn white carriage that will carry you in old world style to your handsome and charming prince. Make your fairytale royal wedding come to life. No, you don’t need to travel across the pond to London. Your dream wedding can take place right here on the Treasure Coast. If you have your prince, we have the ideas for your royal themed wedding.
First thing first, you need a castle or in this case a Mansion. You and your prince can experience the splendor and joy of a Royal Wedding right here in Jensen Beach at the Tuckahoe Mansion. The Mansion is the premier venue combining elegance with traditional, timeless style situated along the fabulous Indian River. Enjoy breathtaking views from every balcony of your “castle”. This “Jewel” of Martin County offers the bride and groom extraordinary amenities that will provide priceless memories for years to come. Make use of the Mansion’s bridal suite or in this case the princess powder room for you and your bridesmaids to dress and pamper yourselves preparing for the big event.
Once your royal venue is secured, plan for grand entrances. Enter the Mansion by riding in a horse drawn carriage up the circular driveway. Your guests will meet you at the top of Mount Elizabeth as they sit in white chavari chairs facing the mansion, lined up in a half moon arrangement with a long isle. The floral archway, with the grand white mansion as a back drop, is where you will say your “I Do’s.” Enter the reception, held under a clear tent decorated with white lights and chandeliers; via a winding white staircase spotlighted therefore the focus is on you and your prince.
Develop your fairytale wedding with a magical first dance as husband and wife. Prepare for your first dance by taking ballroom dance lessons before your big day. Put these lessons to good use as you twirl around the restored terrazzo dance floor to a string quartet playing a waltz. Soften your dance floor décor with satin white drapes. Decorate the Mansion’s eight fireplaces by adding floating candles to the mantles and hearths creating a twinkling, romantic lighting.
Set the mood at your reception. A royal wedding is anything but simple; it is elegant and extravagant. Dinner under the stars, overlooking the river with a mansion back drop is a good start. Utilize local vendors such as event rental companies and florists for extra royal décor. Picture this; shiny, silver candelabras with native flowers cascading down to the tables, satin linens and chair covers softening the look of the clear tent and ice sculptures positioned next to each bar. A royal wedding should have a royally rich color scheme; try rose and royal blue, navy and champaign or black, white and fuchsia. At the Mansion, there is no such thing as clashing of colors; go bold on your color choices as the Mansion stays true to its historic roots with its’ white and ivory walls.
Last but certainly not least, you and your new hubby need to plan for a grand departure. Guests will wait patiently outside the front door of the mansion with lit sparklers illuminating the mansion and your path to a getaway car…but, not just any getaway car; think vintage 1930’s Mercedes Benz Roadster or an equally luxurious, vintage automobile.
