Princess Beatrice walked down the aisle with now-husband Edoardo Mozzi on Friday, July 17, 2020, in an intimate ceremony. Although it was a lowkey affair with only her closest friends and family in attendance, we are finally allowed to see inside Princess Beatrice’s wedding.
Princess Beatrice Wore The Queen’s Dress
Not only did Princess Beatrice’s tiara belong to The Queen – and was worn on her own wedding day – but she also repurposed her gown. The Queen first wore the dress back in 1962 to a London film premier. Beatrice merely had it remodeled to fit for the day.
It Had A Secret Garden Theme
The trailing flowers over the entrance to the chapel gave many of us a clue about the theme. A source later revealed that Princess Beatrice and Edoardo had chosen a secret garden theme to help bring their ceremony to life.
Mozzi’s Son Was The Best Man
Marrying Edoardo Mozzi means that Princess Beatrice is now officially a step-mom. It appeared as though the couple wanted to keep things in the family as their son, Wolfie, was invited to be the best man. Wolfie also stepped in as Beatrice’s page boy for the ceremony.
The Wedding Reception Was Filled With Fun
Reports state the couple had plenty of fun planned for their wedding reception held at the Royal Lodge. Apparently, Princess Beatrice’s wedding reception was held in a marquee filled with a dartboard, drinks, a jukebox, and couches. There were even supposedly glamping pods for guests to use for the night and a bouncy castle to add in a little fun.
It appeared as though no detail was missed, and no stone left unturned when it came to planning Princess Beatrice’s wedding. The young royal might not have had the day that she expected, but it seemed that everything was as perfect as possible.
Many engaged couples had to postpone their wedding plans this year due to the many lockdowns that took place and made these ceremonies and celebrations impossible. Some chose to shorten their guest lists while others canceled them entirely and decided to postpone them. Emily Bugg and Billy Lewis, who are an engaged couple from Chicago, ended up canceling their wedding and doing something different with their catering deposit.
A Canceled Wedding Led to Helping Others
Emily Bugg and Billy Lewis had planned to have a large wedding reception that included family and friends. However, with things getting worse in the world, they realized that their perfect day wouldn’t go on as planned. The couple chose to get married last month at the city hall in a small ceremony that included a photographer.
They had no venue, no guests, and no reception, either. However, they did have the $5,000 deposit that they put down for a caterer. Instead of letting it go to waste, the couple decided to ask the catering company if they could turn the wedding food they chose to have into Thanksgiving dinners for people in need.
A Thanksgiving to Remember
The catering company, Big Delicious Planet, and the newlyweds helped serve 200 meals to locals in need who have serious mental issues and substance use conditions. Emily Bugg stated that canceling a big wedding isn’t actually the worst thing that could happen. She also mentioned that the couple was happy to be married and they’re also happy that they could help people.
Heidi Moorman Coudal is the owner of the catering company the newlyweds used, Big Delicious Planet. She recalled how the couple asked if there was any way that they could do something good with their deposit. She also stated that most people typically asked for their money back. Coudal added that it’s heartwarming how the couple thought to do something for the greater good.
