A Modern Bride

“We’re looking at a bride-to-be, who is getting married a second time. I love her interracial roots and I love the fact that she truly is a modern bride,” the wedding expert tells Us. “I know we always use that word modern bride. It seems like a cliché, but she really is. And I think they’re both going to step outside the box and try to find ways to do slightly unexpected moments.”

A Dress Fit for a Queen

“As soon as I knew she was engaged, I sketched out her dress. It just like literally came to me. And it’s something that has no applique, no crystal, no beading, a pure diamond white fabric,” Tutera, who also designs bridal gowns, predicts about the bride-to-be’s dress. “I also can see her in a box top cut, not a sweetheart neckline and then a princess cut. The lines of a princess cut for her will make her look beautiful and tall and elongate her torso, with a simple flair out A-line, just understated elegance is what I’m hoping she’ll go for.”

Romantic Décor

For the color scheme and décor, the designer predicts: “I’m hoping that she is going to pull in a little bit of dove gray and also a really soft lilac. And lots of candles, low floral. I’m hoping she doesn’t do big tall candelabras and the expected royal look.”

A Traditional Menu

“Classic. This is where I think traditionalism will stand true to the royal family. We’ll see probably a four, if not five, course meal, which is traditional and typical.”

Lots of Bubbly!

“Lots of bubbly, obviously a fine champagne and great wines. It’s not typically a wild open bar at a royal celebration! There might be a tequila bar on the side, that we don’t see,” Tutera jokes.
